Athens 98.4 FM (Greek: Αθήνα 9.84) is the first non-state radio station to begin broadcasting in Greece in 1987. Owned by the Municipality of Athens, the station is the forerunner of the municipal radio sector in Greece.

History

The station went on air on May 31, 1987 without a proper license, but backed by then-Mayor of Athens Miltiadis Evert. The station initially faced many challenges as a legal framework for private broadcasting was not finalized in Greece until 1989.

The station used to broadcast on 98.4 FM, but moved to 98.3 FM in March 2001 after frequencies in the city of Athens were reassigned. The station also webcasts online and broadcasts via satellite. In 2004 it established the foreign-language station Athens International Radio as a spin-off project.
