Macquarie National News is the name of the news service of Macquarie Radio Network.
In 2010, Macquarie joined forces with Pacific Star Network to launch Melbourne's revamped 3MP as MTR 1377. On 2 March 2012, MTR ceased operations when Pacific Star was unable to pay any monies owed to Macquarie.
Historically, Macquarie began broadcasting in the 1920s and until the late 1980s was Australia's only national commercial radio network encompassing 2GB Sydney, 3AW Melbourne, 4BH Brisbane, 5DN Adelaide, 6PR Perth, 2CA Canberra and 2WL Wollongong.
On 31 August 2011, Macquarie acquired the Smart Radio Network which encompasses 4VL, Triple CCC FM, 4HI, 4ZR, 4LM, 4SB and Hot Country network at a cost of $6 million. These stations are part of Macquarie Regional Radio, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Macquarie Radio Network.
