History of RJR 94 FM:
On 9 July 1950, Radio Jamaica had a commercial license to run as a secondary service of the British Rediffusion Group. When RJR started using the technology for broadcasting in 1953, Jamaica became the first British colony in the area to air F.M. broadcasting. In 1959, the operating company, Radio Jamaica Limited owned it and started airing non-stop music service after three years. When in 1968, Rediffusion became non-current, the Jamaican government managed the station and owned it in the 1970s. It was the time when RJR became an entirely Jamaican owned company. In 1972, it extended to its second station for playing music. In 1984, it re-extended in 1984, adding a third station FAME FM. And in 1990, it broadened its programming to cast live programming nationwide. Radio Jamaica station has now turned into Radio Jamaica Limited, a media company that owns other stations.
The programming of the radio station includes music, pop, entertainment, news highlights, talk shows, and question and answer session.
