Expat Radio 96.3 XFM was a radio station of MediaCorp in Singapore. Broadcasting on 96.3 MHz, it was Singapore's only radio station that broadcast a mix of Japanese, French, Hindi, Bangladeshi and German programmes. A blend of World Music from Brazil, Greece, Italy, Lebanon and Spain would also be played during an automated music marathon daily.

Closure[edit]

Both the Media Development Authority (MDA) and Mediacorp have done a review and mutually agreed to cease transmission of the station on 30 September 2016, given the rapidly changing radio landscape. Mediacorp stated that the review was "driven by new technologies and evolving radio listenership preferences". Staff will be redeployed to other positions thereafter.[1]
