NRJ Energy is a private Russian radio station, created in 2006 based in Moscow, and is the Russian version of the French NRJ. The playlist of the radio station is made up of the most popular songs (hence the new slogan of the radio station is "Hit Music Only").

History[edit]

On March 8 2003, Radio Energy was created by the Prof Media (VKPM) group, and then dedicated to dance, house and trance music. The radio station is popular among young people.[citation needed] The station also used to host numerous dance music festivals every year, the most famous being 'Energiya Megadance'.[citation needed]

In April 2006 the average daily number of listeners was 529,000, or a 5.6% of the total number of listeners in the Moscow Region, according to Prof Media/VKPM.[citation needed]

On 1 September 2006, the Prof Media group accepted to rebrand its station Radio Energy, to become the French NRJ brand, which also has other versions internationally.

Broadcasting area[edit]

Energy Russia broadcasts throughout Russia. In the capital Moscow and its region it broadcasts on 104.2 FM. Additionally the radio station is also available on the internet.
