Triple M Riverina MIA 963 (call sign 2RG) is an Australian radio station in New South Wales. Owned and operated as part of Southern Cross Austereo's LocalWorks network, it broadcasts a classic hits format to Griffith, New South Wales and surrounding areas. The station launched on 15 September 1936, and marked only the second commercial radio station to launch in the Riverina.[3] The station was formerly operated by DMG Regional Radio, Macquarie Regional RadioWorks, and Southern Cross Media Group - and broadcasts from studios in Griffith alongside sister station hit99.7 Riverina MIA.

After first being announced in September 2016,[4] 2RG changed its name to Triple M 963AM on 15 December 2016 as a result of a nationwide rebrand of Southern Cross Austereo's radio stations.[5]
