The station's breakfast announcer, Paul Dix, is the longest serving breakfast announcer in Australia at the one station. He has over 50 years experience in radio and has been in Deniliquin since 1961.[5]


The studios were destroyed by fire in 1939.[6]

In the mid-1940s the station was under threat of being relocated to Wangaratta, which caused protests in Deniliquin. [7] In the 1952, the station increased it's operating power from 200W to 2000W, along with a change in frequency to 1520 kHz.[2]
