Pure Gold Network

Pure Gold Network is a radio network owned by Australian Radio Network. It was originally the Classic Hits Network which described its stations format. But with the network splitting formats in 2015, its name was changed to the Pure Gold Network. The Pure Gold Network has a station in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide.

  • Sydney : 2WS was one of two Sydney AM radio stations to convert to FM in 1990s. It retained its name until 2001 when it changed to WSFM. Its original music format was classic hits. But in 2014, its sister station Mix 106.5 switched to a top 40 station and WSFM took over its adult contemporary format.
  • Melbourne : 3KZ was one of two Melbourne AM radio stations to convert to FM in 1990. It started its FM life as KZFM and changed its name to Gold 104FM in 1991 to reflect its classic hits format. In 2015, its sister station Mix 101.1 switched to a top 40 station and Gold 104.3 took over its adult contemporary format.
  • Brisbane : 4KQ launched in 1947 and historically has been Brisbane's classic hits station; which remains its music format.
  • Adelaide : 5DN converted to FM in 1990. Three years later, it swapped frequencies with its sister station 5AD (now Mix 102.3). In 2005, 5DN relaunched as Cruise 1323 with its classic hits format.
