HOT FM91.3 (formerly Radio 91.3 before 1 August 2012, and WKRZ 91.3 before 31 December 2004) is an English-language radio station based in Singapore. It is a radio station of SPH Radio Pte Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) , which also owns Kiss 92FM and UFM 1003.
The station was firstly known as WKRZ in Mediawork. After media merger in Singapore, WKRZ 91.3 had a change in name together with sister station UFM 1003. Both of them added the word 'Radio' in front of their frequency, and that had been their names for the past decade.
The station works closely with its parent company to provide information and freebies to its listeners. For example, some articles read are selected from The Straits Times, Lianhe Zaobao, My Paper, Shin Min Daily News and Lianhe Wanbao.
Despite not being Singapore's No. 1 Hit Music Station in terms of CHR/Pop and Top 40 according to the latest Nielsen Survey Diary 2014, the station has also been actively engaging fans. In March, the station went on a hunt for Singapore's Hottest BFF (Best Friend Forever). Three shortlisted pairs of contestants played for the grand prize worth more than $30,000, including $10,000 cash and a Contiki European adventure. They also made a football fan's dream come true when it gave away a trip to Brazil to catch the World Cup 2014 as part of a Budweiser campaign.
