The Hit Network was formed in 1986 as the Austereo Network after Austereo, the licensee of Adelaide commercial radio station SAFM, purchased Fox FM in Melbourne. Hit Network_sentence_4

The network grew throughout the late 1980s and the 1990s, acquiring B105 Brisbane, 2Day FM Sydney and PMFM Perth, as well as establishing joint-venture stations in Canberra and Newcastle. Hit Network_sentence_5

The network would later become known as the Today Network, with stations adopting a contemporary hit radio music format. Hit Network_sentence_6
