History[edit]

Hot FM previously operated as WaFM, 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,[1] ahead of its traditional rival Era FM which only reached 3.76 million listeners in a week.
