This radio station operates on a 24-hour basis which plays hits predominantly from the 80s, 90s to current targets forward-thinking professionals aged 40 and above, appealing to both genders with a rising target of females,[citation needed] thus the name 'One FM'. The station's DJs include veterans Glenn Ong and Mark Van Cuylenberg (The Flying Dutchman), who have more than 20 years of experience in the radio industry.

HistoryEdit

The station was initially known as WKRZ in Mediawork.[citation needed] After a merger of media companies in Singapore, WKRZ 91.3 had a change in name together with sister station UFM 1003. Both of them added the word 'Radio' in front of their frequency, and that had been their names for the past decade.[citation needed]

In January 2013, popular DJs The Married Men were dropped due to content deemed inappropriate during a morning "Kena Pluck" segment during the Morning Drive Time show.[3]

In January 2015, HOT FM91.3 underwent a major revamp. It was rebranded ONE FM 91.3, with its new slogan "Real Music". The revamp is most notable for changing the station's stated genre, which was originally Contemporary Hit Radio station to one that is focused on being a Rock Music station. Since 8 August 2018, this station has revamped into full-fledged Adult Contemporary format with a new logo.

MusicEdit

Prior to late 2017, One FM 91.3 was formerly a dance, CHR, and rock station. Since late 2017, the station has adopted a Classic hits radio format, primarily competing with Gold 905FM.
