History

In 1971, the AMV-4 Television Station (based in Albury) and the RVN-2 Television Station (based in Wagga Wagga) merged to become one company, called the Riverina and North East Victoria Television Ltd.
RVN-2 had officially begun transmission on 19 June 1964 at 7pm, providing the people of the Riverina and South-West Slopes with their own local news and programming. AMV-4 followed just a few months later on 7 September 1964 at 5pm.
Paul Ramsay and the Ramsay Corporation gained a majority control of Riverina and North-East Television Ltd on 3 June 1985 and in November the company formed an alliance with Country Television Services Ltd (Mid-State Television) which soon formed "The Prime Network".
