Capital FM is the destination of choice for stylish, thinking women, target 25–34 years old, living in market centre and other urban in Malaysia.

Capital FM was the Malaysia’s only women-centric radio station before the station stop broadcasting.[1] Capital FM is the first and only English radio station in Malaysia that is dedicated to women, the perfect platform and sounding board for women to air their views and share their thoughts. Recognising the multi-faceted and multilayered nature of women, the station offers a myriad of content ranging from current issues to more light hearted lifestyle related content.

Starting from 1 October 2015, the radio station would still remain active, albeit with the lack of radio shows and the public service announcements, news and traffic reports are unaffected.

Capital FM holds a Content Applications Service Provider Individual (CASP) licence to enabling it the ability to broadcast without any DJ's alongside its sister radio station, Red FM.[2]

In 9 September 2016, Astro announces plans to acquire both Red FM and Capital FM from Star Radio for RM42 million. Astro intends to rebrand and broadcast these two radio stations via on-air and online platforms after acquisition.[2]
