Metro FM

Metro FM live

Metro FM is a South African radio station, broadcasting urban contemporary music throughout the country 24/7 on FM Stereo as well as the DStv Bouquet Channel 801.

It was launched in 1986 by SABC to compete with the currently non-existing Radio Bop. Its goal from the start was to represent black leadership and success and infuse listeners with a sense of accomplishment, style, and confidence. With a team of presenters and DJs full of attitude, progressive and fun, it offers a musical line-up focused only on the best of genres such as Hip Hop, R&B, Kwaito, Contemporary Jazz, House, and Gospel. It also broadcasts the latest news as well as sport, financial, weather, and traffic reports.

Metro FM takes the opportunity to engage directly with the public through competitions and events, with the most popular of which, HeatWave, bringing several A-List artists and top DJs to several South African regions during summer.

It offers a live stream on its website to reach listeners all over the world, as well as the podcasts of its most popular shows and programs. Ask A Man and Metro FM Top 40 rank among the most requested by listeners.
