Southern Cross Media Group (formerly Macquarie Media Group) is one of Australia's major media companies. On 3 July 2007 Southern Cross Broadcasting recommended Macquarie Media Group's offer of A$1.35 billion, for a takeover of the corporation. Under the deal, Macquarie Media Group would then onsell the metropolitan radio stations to Fairfax Media.[1] On 5 November 2007, the company officially acquired Southern Cross Broadcasting's assets.[2] On 17 December 2009 shareholders approved a restructuring plan. The company was then renamed from Macquarie Media Group to its current name on 17 December 2009.[3][4][5]

In March 2016, Macquarie Group sold a 15.7% stake in Southern Cross Media worth $130 million, and of that 9.9% was purchased by Nine Entertainment Co., the owner of the Nine Network.[6][7]

Southern Cross Media Group head office (ASX registered) is located at Level 2, 257 Clarendon Street, South Melbourne, VIC, Australia, 3205.
