History

EHR's history can be traced back to 1992, when Uģis Polis and Jānis Krauklis founded Radiodejas, which was the first non-governmental radio station in Latvia and Lithuania. Radiodejas was broadcast from a flat in Terbatas street, Riga and reached only the city of Riga.

In 1994 they renamed the radio station Super FM. In 2002, European Hit Radio started a new policy - to reflect the music situation in Europe with fresh music and charts from all European countries. In 2004 European Hit Radio went off air in Estonia after losing broadcasting license competition to a new Adult Contemporary station Raadio 3.

European Hit Radio used to have stations in Hungary too. However Sopron Radio went off air in 2006 and only 1 year after the acquisition of Pilis Radio Szentendre, the latter was sold. Moreover, the owners bought Roxy Radio in Budapest which was also sold years following the purchase. Finally, the last Hungarian EHR went off air in 2012, in Zalaegerszeg.
