Macquarie Sports Radio was launched in 2018 by Macquarie Media. In October 2019, the network underwent a broadcasting pause to stage a content review. On the 21th January 2020, new full owners Nine Entertainment Co. announced they would close the Macquarie Sports Radio brand in February and shift its stations towards 70s, 80s and 90s music. This comes after Nine discontinued Macquarie Media itself and placed its stations directly under the Nine umbrella. Stations will return to their previous names, albeit with new logos.
