ARN’s vision is to create moments that move you, while delivering the most complete audio offering for audiences and advertisers across its portfolio of brands – KIIS, Pure Gold, CADA, iHeartRadio and local brands, which now entertain and influence more than a third of Australians each week.

Its KIIS network injects vibrancy into the everyday, making it brighter and full of possibility.  The network delivers a Hot AC format and consists of Sydney’s KIIS 1065 with Kyle & Jackie O, Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1 with Jase & Lauren, Adelaide’s Mix102.3 with Erin, Brisbane’s 97.3FM with Robin & Terry and Perth’s 96FM with The Bunch with Clairsy & Lisa.

Its Pure Gold network connects Gen X to the music they love and people that get them. It puts a little more liveliness into life and instils the audience with vitality. The network delivers a classic hits format and consists of Sydney’s 101.7 WSFM with Jonesy & Amanda, Melbourne’s GOLD104.3 with Christian O’Connell, and Adelaide’s Cruise 1323 with John Dean.

CADA is the new home of Hip Hop and R&B in Australia. Available nationally on the free iHeartRadio app, DAB+ in every capital city, and in Western Sydney and Katoomba on 96.1FM. CADA is new on the block and has gone beyond audio. It’s a multi-touch media platform for the young and the young-at-heart – and here to bring audiences closer to the music, closer to the artists, closer to the front of the line, closer to what they love. CADA is pulse. It’s rhythm. It’s cadence. It sets the tempo for Hip Hop and R&B in Australia. Get closer with CADA. And never miss a beat again.
