About Us

The Happy World of 5fm Radio broadcasts on 89.9MHzand is located at Plot no. 9945 Kabelenga Road Lusaka.

5fm Radio was granted a full broadcasting license on 1st April 2004 to air for 24 hours and within a radius of 250 kilometres.

We are an adult contemporary radio station with a menu revolving around serious talk shows, community-targeted programmes on socio-economic subjects, governance issues and health.


True to our motto “Freedom of Expression for Good,”

We strive to create a platform on which to have meaningful dialogue and also content which is bias-free, not inflammatory and devoid of any propaganda.

We offer independent news bulletins and quality adult music of yesteryears. This includes but is not limited to jazz, Congolese rumba, old school Zambian music, etc.

The station broadcasts live for 24 hours daily with news headlines on the hour; our main news bulletins are broadcast at 06:15, 12:45 and 18:30hrs every day.
All talk shows and other discussion programmes are presented as live phone-ins with the aim of getting broader community participation. All our programmes are prepared in English although commercial adverts in vernacular are accepted.

We also air Health programmes with a focus on HIV/AIDS, religious programmes on Sundays and ‘Problem Corner’ an inter-active discussion programme attempting to find solutions to various problems of a social nature.

Web Streaming

Listeners all over the world can listen to the Happy World of 5fm on the following link www.5fm.co.zm or on our Facebook page.

Studio Facilities

We have facilities that are capable of generating commercials and programmes for broadcast on any other station. The on air studio is for live programmes only.



You may ask yourself how we do this. How a station with personality like 5fm Radio could have advertising rates that are very low. But low rates do not equate to quality or results.

Economical rates mean continued steady growth and accessibility for YOU the advertiser. You could put a month long campaign on low rates and achieve maximum results that could have taken you months to manage on a bigger budget on other stations.
