History[edit]

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.

On 18 January 2013, SPH UnionWorks released a media statement stating that The Married Men have been dropped from HOT FM 91.3 with immediate effect due to "inappropriate content" during a morning radio segment known as "Kena Pluck" on Thursday 17 January 2013. They had been producing for SPH Unionworks since 2007. Since then, two of the DJs, Andre and Jill, as well as the producer, Shaun, have been back on-air, this time however, on different shows.

In December 2013, it was also revealed that HOT FM 91.3 's breakfast show, The Shan & Cheryl Show, is Singapore's Number 1 Hit Music Breakfast Show!

On 19 January 2015, HOT FM91.3 underwent a major revamp at 8:00am (Singapore Standard Time); with the phrase "Singapore finally gets ONE!" hinting the change. It has since been rebranded as ONE FM 91.3, with a new slogan called "Real Music". The revamp is most notable for the change of music genre, being originally from a Contemporary Hit Radio station to currently being a Rock Music station.
