Last week, ARN’s parent company HT&E announced its acquisition of Grant Broadcasters, giving advertisers the potential to reach over 90% of Australians nation-wide.

The acquisition includes radio and digital operations across 46 Grant’s stations and will combine with ARN’s existing 13 stations.

The sale is worth $307.5m. Of that, 22.5% of the purchase consideration will be delivered to Grant Broadcasters in HT&E shares, equating to an ~11% holding in HT&E, with Grant’s current CEO Alison Cameron joining the HT&E Board and current COO Rick Lenarcic joining ARN’s Executive Leadership Team.
