2AY is an Australian Classic hits and Talk radio-formatted AM radio station, broadcasting to Albury, New South Wales and the surrounding areas of Southwest New South Wales and North East Victoria. It is owned and operated by ACE Radio.
In 2005, 2AY and sister station 104.9 Star FM were purchased by DMG Radio Australia. Later in 2005, Macquarie Regional RadioWorks, through its purchase of most DMG Radio Australia's regional assets, owned 2AY, Star FM, and former cross-town rival 105.7 The River. Due to cross media ownership laws limiting the number of radio stations owned by one company in a market to two, Macquarie was required to sell one station. 2AY was sold in September to Ace Radio.
