Midwest Radio Network

Description of Site

A world media player involved in radio broadcasting and the publication of a global network of eNewspapers, Midwest Radio Network has been in business for nearly eighty years. Founded in 1938 to establish a broadcasting station in Lithgow, west of Sydney in Australia, the company has extended its regional radio network while embarking on an enterprise to develop and operate more than 100 online newspapers stretching to every corner of the globe.

Radio Interests

The company operates broadcasting station Radio 2LT, which services Lithgow, Oberon and the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, and has been on-the-air since the broadcasting station was established in 1939. The company also operates Move FM, which has a similar coverage area, which is establishing translators to better serve the Blue Mountains. The translators have been extensively delayed due to a range of issues the company has faced including the protractedness of negotiations with the Australian broadcasting regulator ACMA to finalise appropriate technical operating conditions, and completion of works on the transmission tower at Wentworth Falls. The translators are expected to be fully operational in 2018. Radio 2LT which has operated on AM since its establishment in 1939, has applied to ACMA for approval to switch to FM.

Midwest Radio Network is also a large shareholder through its associated company Big News Network in Ireland’s iRadio, servicing 15 counties across the north-east, midlands, north-west and west of the country, on FM frequencies 102.1 MHz and 104.4 MHz (96.9 Donegal) in the north-west and 104.7 MHz and 106.7 MHZ in the north-east.


Midwest Radio Network began the development of its online newspaper, or eNewspaper, network in 2002 and now publishes around 180 stand-alone portals servicing each key region, country, city and U.S. state, as well as a number of other topical designations such as business, sport, and various industries, including technology, travel and entertainment.

Much of the news content displayed on the sites is provided by Big News Network’s editorial resources which includes in-house journalists, wire services, and contributors. Additional news content is obtained as a result of each site's own resources, contracted international news agencies, and regular contributors. The eNewspapers additionally have contracts with major news agencis to display their news feeds and financial markets information, news and updates. There are a host of services offered on Midwest Radio Network's eNewspaper sites including subscription-based daily email alerts, news releases and RSS feeds, access to a network of social media sites with stand-alone pages for each eNewspaper, and movie reviews by the company movie reviewer James Kendrick.
