Last December Fairfax decided to retain their 9 South Australian and Queensland regional radio stations after a deal with Macquarie Media Group fell over. At the time Fairfax boss David Kirk claimed in a statement today to be “pleased” to retain the licences. ”The stations are trading strongly and we are satisfied with their performance,” he said.

Moving forward 6 months there are various whispers Fairfax might be looking to offer the stations for sale again. Could Prime be a potential buyer?
