MIX (formerly known as mix fm)[1] is a Malaysian national radio station managed by Astro Radio, a subsidiary of Astro Holdings Sdn Bhd. The station plays adult contemporary music from the 1990s, targeting listeners between the ages of 25 to 34. In 2015, as according to Nielsen RAM Survey Wave #2, Mix FM recorded an average weekly audience of 245,000.[2]

History[edit]

Mix FM, alongside sister channels Hitz FM and LiteFM, was among the first privately owned English language radio stations to be broadcast in Malaysia, having launched into the airwaves in January 1997 after being one of Astro's audio-only channels since the launch of the satellite network in October the year before. The country had only one English language radio station before this, which was the government-owned Radio Malaysia Channel 4.

Originally, the radio station mainly focused on 1980s and 1990s music in its fare. After a rebranding exercise in 2006 however, the station tends to gravitate more towards adult contemporary music whereas its former focus of 1980s and 1990s music has been moved to its sister station, LiteFM.

On January 1, 2018, the station (along with 10 other radio stations) dropped the suffix "FM" from its brand name as part of the Astro Radio’s major rebranding project to focus on digital platform.[3] A new logo was also unveiled.
