For those who tuned in to the morning broadcast of Hot FM radio yesterday (Wednesday, 28th July), you will surely wonder why was there an angry voice addressing the morning DJs in the background, when a song was in the midst of being played on air. The majority of Hot FM listeners were shocked when the two radio presenters for the radio station’s morning slot, AG and Fad Bocey were suddenly reprimanded by someone from the company’s management.
The incident was caught on recording and was shared by a Twitter user @rfxng when he managed to record the incident that was publicly heard by listeners yesterday. After the incident, the slot was soon replaced by another radio presenter and an apology was issued because they claimed that there had been a technical issue.

“I know you’re tired, but turn off your mic if you want to reprimand your staff. I want to listen to the song @hotfm976,” the user captioned in his post. Many deemed the situation to be very unprofessional as both presenters, Fad Bocey and AG Azmeer had just been paired together for the morning slot.
Some listeners expressed their disappointment over the careless mistake as the incident could more or less affect the radio station as people could perceive them in a negative way. On the other hand, some netizens also claimed that the incident might be a mere gimmick as Hot FM will undergo transformation on 2nd August.
Following the incident, the radio presenters, AG and Fad, appeared on Hot FM’s Instagram yesterday to apologise for the technical problems that occurred. The duo then stated that an explanation regarding the incident will be shared today (Thursday, 29th July) and the management team will answer speculations from netizens.
However, earlier today, netizens and Hot FM listeners were taken aback when the supposed explanation regarding the issue was then replaced with the appearance and news on the comeback of legendary Hot FM radio presenter, Fara Fauzana. After five years of leaving her seat at Hot FM, Fara Fauzana returned to the world of broadcasting via a morning slot with fellow presenters, AG and Fad today.
Hot FM even announced the surprising news with several posts on their official Instagram account. Fellow celebrities and netizens alike welcomed Fara’s return to radio broadcasting as it cures the longing of the majority of listeners who grew up listening to her voice on the radio station.
Welcome back Fafau and we are excited for the trio’s chemistry that will surely cheer up our morning.
