Prime Televisionpurchased Sea FM Townsvillein Queensland and Grant Broadcasterspurchased Sea FM Devonport, Sea FM Burnieand Sea FM Scottsdalein Tasmania.
The SEA FM brand name and logo was created by
Gold Coast Broadcasters Pty Ltdfor one station - 90.9 SEA FM- after the Gold Coast was granted a new commercial FM licence. 90.9 SEA FM began broadcasting in 1989 with programming consulted by Austereo. The original SEA FM on-air line-up was a strong team of experienced Announcers, many having made their name previously in Capital City radio including - Craig Bruce(FOX FM) & Sammy Power, Ian 'Lofty' Fulton(4IP), Grahame "Durry" Rodgers(2SM & 2NX), Sue Moses(2MMM & Channel 10), Gregg Easton(2UW & 4BK), Joe Miller(3XY & EON FM), Dean Millerand Simon Franks. In the same year the Gold Coast's existing AM station 4GG was granted permission to convert to FM as 92.5 4GGG (later KROQ). In the early 90s Gold Coast Broadcasters purchased KROQ and also the Sunshine Coast's 92.7 MixFM. The Sunshine Coast's 91.9 SEA FM was then launched as a supplementary licence. Gold Coast Broadcasters later became known as RG Capitalwith financial backing provided by Australian Media Tycoon Reg Grundy. With the further purchase of existing radio stations and the launch of newly granted supplementary FM licences, RG Capital expanded the SEA FM brand name and logo throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania. In 2004, RG Capital sold their regional stations to Macquarie Southern Cross Media(previously known as Macquarie Regional RadioWorks).
The network's stations are aimed at the under 40's section of the market, playing Top 40 and popular music. Most stations provide local breakfast and daytime programming,and also include a variety of networked programs.
