Star FM is an Australian radio network, consisting of Top 40/CHR formatted stations in New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. The brand was created by Nova Entertainment, then known as DMG Regional Radio, in 1999, with the network being sold to Southern Cross Austereo.

Programming[edit]

The network's stations are aimed at the under 35's section of the market, playing Top 40 and popular music. For most stations, the only local program heard on these stations is the breakfast programme, with Alo Bakers Workday networked from the Gold Coast Media Centre, and drive/nights programming coming from the Southern Cross Austereo's metropolitan stations FOX FM in Melbourne and 2DAY FM in Sydney.

In 2007, Star FM changed its major positioning statement from "Todays Best Music" to "Your HIT Music Station". The positioning statement was changed again in June 2011 to "Your #1 HIT Music Station" and following the Southern Cross Media/Austereo merger & become "Fresh & First" in 2013 until recently it was changed again to "Hits & Old Skool"
