Hot 104.1 (104.1 FM) is a Caribbean music radio station in the Cayman Islands in the British West Indies. The station is owned by dms Broadcasting, an affiliate of dms Organization.

The station maintains studio operations in George Town, Grand Cayman. The broadcast is also simultaneously streamed live on the internet via the station's website, www.hot1041.ky

The beginning[edit]

The station belongs to the parent company, dms Broadcasting, who were granted a license to broadcast on three stations in Grand Cayman by the ICTA on July 15, 2004. On January 12, 2005, the Cayman Islands Government announced the station had negotiated a deal with dms Broadcasting to allow broadcasting of all three stations from a government owned tower, thus eliminating the need to erect a new tower.

Hurricane Ivan delivered a small setback to the operation when it hit the Island on September 11, 2004. After debris were cleaned up and removed, work continued on the station. The first official day of broadcasting was April 11, 2005 with the stations final names being Hot 104.1, 106.1 KISS-FM, and X107.1.
