FM Stereo Johor Bahru or FMJB and JBFM is a regional radio operated by Radio Televisyen Malaysia (RTM) exclusively for the Johor Bahru metropolitan area, and as a complement to Johor FM. The station came into being on 20 October 1988 by taking over the FM Stereo transmitter of the old Johor FM then known as Radio Malaysia Johor Bahru. Similar to Johor FM, the station features local news and entertainment for 18 hours a day. Unlike Johor FM though which has Johor statewide coverage, FMJB can only be heard in South Johor and Singapore transmitting on FM 107.5 MHz from RTM Johor Bahru. In final few years of broadcasting, the service is simply a repeater of Johor FM and the radio service ceases at about March 2011. The radio service is reused by Bernama Radio 24 by using the same frequency at 27 December 2011 under a test transmission on Gunung Pulai, and official transmission starts on January 2012.[1]
