Hitz.fm ,Malaysia best english radio station~~
The street team for hitz.fm are the hitz.fm Cruisers (Cruisers in short). Their duty is to meet fans of the station and give away free gifts courtesy of hitz.fm.
hitz.fm has a sister station, the music TV channel HITZ.TV, now known as Astro hitz on Astro.
Every weekday in the morning, the Morning Crew would play a Got'Cha call. This prank involves the Morning Crew calling up Malaysians and pranking them on the request of the victim's family, friends or colleagues.
More recently, the Morning Crew has introduced a new machine, patented the Lie Detector Test which involves the user being strapped onto the seat and asked Yes or No questions. The test would either show true, false, or unreadable. Malaysians can request to try out the Lie Detector Test and would have to swing by the headquarters to do so.
HITZ FM was launched into Malaysian FM airwaves in January 1997 after being one of Astro's audio-only channels since the launch of the satellite network in October the year before.
In 2000, the Malaysian Top 10 (later renamed Malaysian English Top 10) was introduced, airing every Sundays at 4pm to bring the limelight into local Malaysian music which would suit the tastes of hitz.fm's listeners, especially indie acts.
In April 2001, HITZ FM was rebranded as hitz.fm (with a dot) as an emphasis of its significant Internet presence for its listeners rather than just being a radio station, providing online facilities like webcasts of their announcers in action as well as radio streaming.
In August 2003, a rift between Li'l Kev and the management of AMP over the contract between them caused him and FlyGuy to leave hitz.fm abruptly. Jason Lo and Rudy Sufian were called up to fill in their places and eventually became the new Morning Crew. (Later, Lo switched time slots with JJ Fernandez for the drive-home slot). Later in the same year, HITZ.TV was launched as a complement to the radio channel.
In 2005, the hitz.fm Malaysian English Top 10 Awards was introduced to honour the best of Malaysian English-singing musical talent and compositions. Two such events have held thus far.
