Who We Are
Guardian Media has the first and largest radio network in Trinidad and Tobago, with its beginnings dating back to 1925 when a British based company, Rediffusion, acquired rights to radio distribution in Trinidad. The company continued to expand its operations and, in 1946, it formally created the Trinidad Broadcasting Company, setting up its own full station in 1947, known as Radio Trinidad 730AM.
TBC continued with its pioneering ethos by launching, in 1976, the country’s first FM station: 95.1FM - The Best Mix. Other stations followed: Radio Tempo 105FM, now Vibe CT 105FM, a leader in local music and sports coverage.
In 2017, 95.1FM was re-branded to 951 REMIX and retains a market leading position as an adult contemporary station.
The East Indian market has been catered for by TBC since 1995, with the launch of Sangeet 106.1FM followed by Aakash Vani 106.5FM, both highly successful with a mix of chutney and other East Indian music as well as talk and discussion programmes.
In 2011, TBC launched its sixth radio station, Slam 100.5FM. The progressive urban station has taken the market by storm, becoming a multimedia conversation point for a younger, urban demographic in Trinidad and Tobago.
In 2015, the network was revamped with the closure of its inspirational 730AM service and the opening of Sky 99.5FM, also catering for the Christian inspirational market. This was needed to reflect the fact that most people in Trinidad and Tobago now prefer to listen to radio on FM. Also in the same year, Guardian Media decided to take its decades of radio broadcast experience to Guyana, with the setting up of Mix 90.1FM, an adult contemporary music station broadcasting live from the capital Georgetown and serving all major cities in the country.
Guardian Media’s network of stations is also available online on station websites and through mobile apps, helping cement its position as Trinidad and Tobago’s biggest and best radio network with over 200 thousand regular listeners on air and online.
