The Spirit Radio Network targets 30- to 54-year-old listeners with a Hot AC format and operates under the Australian radio callsigns 6KA, 6NW, 6SAT, 6BAY and 6EL.

History[edit]

Spirit Radio Network was first launched as The Star Radio Network in 2000s, however stations 6NW Hedland and 6KA Karratha first began broadcasting in the 1970s under the North West Radio branding. Since then, the network has been rebranded as The Spirit, later Spirit Radio Network, and launched the media careers of former Austereo CEO Brad March, 101.7 WSFM breakfast presenter Brendan "Jonesy" Jones, and Today Network voiceover artist Ben Wasley.
