About Hot 91.9FM
Hot 91.9FM is a community radio station based in Northriding and broadcasting to Johannesburg North and surrounding areas. Since its launch on the 17th of November 2014, Hot 91.9FM has managed to propel itself, with lightning speed, straight into a radio gap that existed in Gauteng.
Playing the best ‘Old Skool’ and R&B music, with the most popular radio personalities as well as the most spectacular on-air promotions and off-air presence, it’s been a thrilling journey of change for radio and the station, which is driving innovation and leading change in the industry. “HOT 91.9FM is about FUN radio with the purpose of making a meaningful difference in the lives of those around us,” says founder and station Managing Director, Lloyd Madurai.
For the fourth year in a row, Joburg`s hottest radio station Hot 91.9FM has scooped the prestigious STATION OF THE YEAR award at the 2020 South African Radio Awards. This is a landmark achievement considering the station has won this award every year since 2017.
Added to this, Hot 91.9FM won another eight awards including the MY STATION accolade which is given to the radio station with the most loyal listeners. The litmus test for any radio station is its appeal to its audience. Station loyalty is of paramount importance to a radio station and is perhaps the most important aspect of broadcasting.
A ship is only as good as it’s captain, and Lloyd Madurai managing director of Hot 91.9FM has steered the station from inception in 2014 to the multiple award-winning business it is today. His vision for making a meaningful difference in the community has paid dividends. Reacting to the impressive array of awards, Lloyd said, “What brings us to the finishing line every year, is Hot 91.9FM’s total commitment to our audience and community. It is our combination of world-class entertainment and social engagement which is a testament to our station’s passion for radio and our core values. We are blessed to have some of the greatest radio talent in our country, some of whom are graduates of our landmark Radio Academy”.
