Radio24 is the first and only 24-hour news and talk radio station in Malaysia. The free-to-air station began trial transmission on 16 August 2007 at 12.00 p.m. and was officially launched on 3 September 2007 at 6.00 a.m. It broadcasts on the 93.9 FM frequency that was formerly used by Klasik Nasional FM, which was formed through the merger of Nasional FM and Klasik FM (formerly known as Radio Irama Melayu Asli (RIMA) and later as Klasik FM).

The station broadcasts domestic, regional and world news through hourly news bulletins, half-hourly news highlights and breaking news as and when they happen through live coverages and cross-overs. The station also has an array of talk shows. It also airs at frequent intervals, traffic, weather and stock market reports. The station also provides live audio streaming through its website.

Broadcasting in both English and Bahasa Malaysia, the station is owned and operated by the Malaysian national news agency, BERNAMA, and broadcasts from "Wisma BERNAMA" in Kuala Lumpur.
