The station operates 24 hours a day; broadcasting a mixed selections of songs in Malay, Indonesian and English; though Malay is its major language used.
Hot FM previously operated as WaiFM, which was owned by producer and actor Tiara Jacquelina. Media Prima acquired the station not long after and began test transmissions from 15 January 2006 to 6 February 2006, in which the station officially commenced operations led by Sathiaseelan a/l Paul Thurai, who was a former presenter with Era FM.
In 2009, Hot FM went down in history as for the first time it was charted at the top among other radio stations in Malaysia with 3.8 million weekly listeners, ahead of its traditional rival Era FM which only reached 3.76 million listeners in a week.
Hot FM Kelate and Hot FM T'Ganu
Hot FM Kelate and Hot FM T'Ganu are specific channels for listeners in Kelantan and Terengganu respectively. The channels contrast to the main channel by having their announcers operate in the state's more localised dialects (e.g Kelantanese Malay for Hot FM Kelate and Terengganu dialect for Hot FM T'ganu). The segments also differ in terms of the content that is being shared.
