Hot91.9fmis launching on the DStv audio package (channel 922) on October 1, 2015.

Originally launched in November 2014, Hot 91.9fm is a Joburg-based community radio station which has re-united radio legends such as Sasha Martinengo, Ian F, Kevin Savage, Darren Scott, Jeremy Mansfield, Treasure Tshabalala, Mark Pilgrim and Gavin Singh.

The heat spread through Joburg fast as the station quickly became a firm favourite to its national audience, thanks to internet streaming. Listeners around South Africa spread the word, quickly growing Hot 91.9fm’s Facebook page to over 13,000 fans. The station was nominated for 15 MTN Radio Awards in 2015, of which it won five – all this in its first year of existence.

Hot 91.9fm Station General Manager, Lloyd Madurai, says: “We’re thrilled to put our station on the DStv audio package – this means we’ll have a much wider reach and a chance to grow our listenership.”

Hot 91.9fmwill be available in South Africa to DStv Premium, Extra, Compact, Family, Access and EasyView customers, as well as DStv customers on the Indian and Portuguese packages. Be sure to tune in from October 1 on DStv channel 922.
