TBC FM was formerly known as PRT Radio, which started in 1995, which was then known as City Radio. City radio started shortly after the proliferation of media in Tanzania. Before, there was only RTD, as the electronic media in the country, which was owned by the government, but after the proliferation of the media in the 1990, several privately owned media emerged. It was called City Radio because at first it only reaches the Dar es Salaam city, but as days moved on; it extended to other regions of Tanzania.
City radio was solely aimed at competing with other radio stations that were basically commercial oriented. Music and commercial programmes were broadcasted through this station to enable City Radio to have competitive advantage over other stations.
