SEA FM is a commercial Australian radio network, consisting of stations in Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania and is owned by Macquarie Southern Cross Media. Some Sea FM stations were later sold to meet media ownership requirements. Prime Television purchased Sea FM Townsville in Queensland and Grant Broadcasters purchased Sea FM Devonport, Sea FM Burnie and Sea FM Scottsdale in Tasmania.

History

The SEA FM brand name and logo was created by Gold Coast Broadcasters Pty Ltd for 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 Miller and 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 Capital with 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).
