Listeners! There's a new radio station in town and it's none other than Capital FM! Taking centre stage as the ONLY radio station that addresses women in providing women a voice and a hub to exchange thoughts and opinions, Capital FM runs with its new tagline of Women – The New Capital.
Capital FM aims to empower and inspire urban women by meeting their emotional and intellectual needs.
“Our main priority is to give women a voice in the media. We strive to provide timely and relevant information from modern women to modern women and no other station in Malaysia offers this,” said Mr. Tan Chong Kheng (C.K. Tan) Deputy Chief Broadcasting Officer of Star Radio Group.
With a carefully handpicked cast of celebrity presenters comprising Asha Gill, Joanne Kam, Xandria Ooi, Patricia K, Sheela Haran, April Kuan, Joey G and Liang, the station promises to reach out to comfort, challenge, tickle the funny bones and ride through the hard times together with all women listeners like never before!

In the early stages of the show, listeners will be entertained by special guest-announcer Tony Eusoff. Promising to be fun, irreverent and better than your strongest mug of steaming hot aromatic coffee, here’s something to put a smile on your face every morning and to keep it there the rest of the day!
