Radio Italiana 531 is one of Adelaide, Australia's two "on band" dedicated non-English language commercial radio services. Radio Italiana 531 broadcasts an Adelaide-based Italian language radio service.
The radio station was established in the 1990s[when?], and commenced transmissions under an Australian Broadcasting Authority Temporary Community Broadcasting Licence (TCBL). The broadcasts on 92.9 FM were time shared with youth/dance community radio station Fresh FM, and in the licensing process both organisations applied for the full-time permanent FM broadcasting licence.
While Fresh FM was ultimately successful in gaining its licence and moving frequency to 92.7, this left the Italian Language station without a frequency. In the months following the grant of the FM community licence to Fresh FM, an additional AM licence became available. This licence was to be issued on a frequency which became available upon the previous licensee 5UV (Radio Adelaide) moving to an FM frequency.
531AM was auctioned by the Australian Broadcasting Authority for use as a narrowcast service, and the final and successful bid was won by Radio Televisione Italiana (SA) Inc, and the station is licensed as 5RTI.
