ABC Goulburn Murray (call sign: 3MRR) is an ABC Local Radio station based in Albury-Wodonga, formerly known as 2CO. From studios located in Wodonga, the station covers parts of northern Victoria and southern New South Wales including Albury, Wodonga, Wangaratta, and Benalla.
The station's lineup of local programming includes a breakfast program from 6.00-8.30am hosted by Gaye Pattison as well as a morning show presented by Joseph Thomsen and a Saturday Breakfast with Ray Terrill.
In 1934 the station played a role in the MacRobertson Air Race when the Uiver, lost after becoming caught in a thunderstorm, ended up over Albury, New South Wales. Arthur Newnham, the announcer, appealed for cars to line up on the racecourse to light up a runway for the plane. The plane landed, and next morning was pulled out of the mud by locals to fly on and win the handicap section of the race.
