Hot 91.9FM is a community radio station, based in Northriding, that broadcasts to Johannesburg North and surrounding areas. We play Joburg’s best Old Skool and R&B music, with popular radio personalities and engaging on-air promotions.
The station has carved a distinctive niche in Gauteng’s radio gap, while also cementing itself as a fervent ambassador of small business. In 2018, the South African Small Business Awards acknowledged Hot 91.9FM as one of the Top 20 small businesses in South Africa, receiving the National Community Award and the coveted National Small Business award.
The following year, Hot 91.9FM partnered with fintech company, ProfitShare Partners, to showcase small businesses and entrepreneurship in South Africa. Business with Bunny aired on The Bunny Majaja Show and profiled businesses ranging from start-ups to multi-million Rand contenders.
With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lockdown, Hot 91.9FM partnered with the National Small Business Chamber (NSBC) on the Small Business Relief feature. The feature, that aired weekdays on Mansfield in the Morning, offered vital information to help small businesses – throughout South Africa – weather the economic storm.
The station has partnered with Beyond the Curve – a pioneering movement that aims to connect businesses that need assistance, with businesses that can offer assistance; provided a platform for restaurants to promote their delivery services in Lockdown Level 4 and offered tailored advertising packages to businesses trading throughout.
Additionally, Hot 91.9FM’s community upliftment initiative – Hot Cares – strives to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those around us since 2015. Beneficiaries have ranged from the development of crèches in informal settlements, previously disadvantaged entrepreneurs, NPOs needing guidance, resources and awareness, medical assistance, educational bursaries and individual assistance to those who need little bit of hope and a helping hand.
At our core, Hot 91.9FM is passionate about our community’s stories and we tell these stories through innovative, cost-effective radio and digital solutions. We prides ourselves on our solution-drive attitude and flexibility to customise packages with client budgets and needs in mind.
We have advertising packages starting from R17 770. The Punt Your Business package is valued at over R70 000 and offers focussed on-air exposure and includes social media exposure on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
