Ai FM (Chinese name: 爱 FM, literally "Love FM"), is a national Chinese radio station operated by Radio Televisyen Malaysia since 1934. It is broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is the oldest Malaysian Chinese-language radio station. Its monopoly ended in 1996-97 when a private station, 988 FM began broadcasting as a trilingual radio station. The latter changed into a full-fledged Chinese-language radio station.

Etymology[edit]

The radio station was formerly known as Radio 5 and Radio Malaysia Channel 5.
