Hot FM is an Australian radio network, consisting of stations in north and central Queensland and Western Australia.

The brand was created by DMG Radio Australia, before they sold their regional stations to Macquarie Regional RadioWorks in 2004.

Hot 91.1FM Sunshine Coast is not owned by Macquarie; DMG sold it in early 2005 to A Investments. In 2007, A Investments later sold Hot 91 to Prime Television. Macquarie and Prime have arrangements with DMG for the use of the Hot FM brand.

There is also an unrelated Hot FM in Mildura, Victoria.
