The Edge 96.1

The Edge 96.ONE (call sign: 2ONE) is a music radio station based in outer Sydney, Australia, but licensed to Katoomba. It is operated by the Australian Radio Network.

Since Australian Radio Network Owned OneFM, the station studio from Penrith was then moved to Seven Hills with WSFM 101.7. In 2002 the Edge 96.One was moved to its present home now North Ryde as did WSFM 101.7.

While The Edge has evolved into a more contemporary hits format with an urban influence, ARN have chosen to capitalise on the established ‘Ksera’ brand, and continue to service the confirmed urban audience in Australia on a national level by launching, streaming on-line now.

In 2009, The Edge 96.ONE launched a sister station of the same format on DAB+ in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney under the name of ”Edge Digital”. The station is a music format based on The EDGE 96.ONE, though not a direct simulcast of that station, but shares resources, including logo and promotions. Edge Digital is not available on Metro FM radio.

In April 2011, The Edge Breakfast welcomed back former announcers Mike E and Emma Chow

In August 2013, The Edge rebranded and presented their new music position. While the previous tagline of “Live Sexy” described the lifestyle associated with The Edge, the new philosophy of “Hits That Move You” was believed to direct listeners to what they will hear on the station.

“The Edge is unique in Australian radio as it is the only commercial station running an Urban format. ‘Hits that move you’ expresses our musical edge and better allows urban music fans to find us.”

The Edge is also host of the famous Club Edge show playing Saturday evenings with resident DJs such as Nino Brown at night.

In March 2014, The Edge revealed an innovative new listener driven chart from iHeartRadio.
