HistoryEdit

In 2007, Fly FM introduced a programme slot called "50 minutes of non-stop music" where the crew will air songs for 50 minutes without commercials.

The station was initially launched by Jason Cottam and the popular deejay, Fly Guy (Saufian Mokhtar), as its public face. Together with Yvonne Natalie Kniese (Natalie), they hosted they morning show called "The Pagi Show". Natalie, who went to was later replaced by Phat Fabes and soon after Fly Guy was replaced by Ben (Loh Ben Jern). Soon Nadia was added as the 3rd host of the show.

From 26 June 2011 onwards, Phat Fabes & Ben were moved to the evening slot. The morning show was renamed as "The Pagi Rock Crew" (named after LMFAO's hit song Party Rock Anthem) run by Hafiz & Prem along with original morning crew DJ, Nadia. Nadia left the station on 20 March 2012.

In 2013, Zher & Guibo were introduced as the "All New Pagi Rock Crew". After a year, they were moved to the evening slot. The current morning show is called "Ben & Hafiz" whilst the night show "Fly 30" is managed by Ivan.

In 2015, Ben's retirement led to the formation of a new morning slot called the #FlyWolfPack consisting of Hafiz, Dennis and Guibo.

In 2017, after Dennis left, the morning show was renamed "Fly Fm's Hafiz and Guibo." In August 2017, Zher left Fly FM as well.
