Hit 92.9 was originally 6PM on the AM band, beginning broadcasting on 22 April 1937 making it the third commercial radio station in Perth. Originally broadcasting from radio mast in Fremantle, the station moved its transmission mast to Coffee Point in South Perth in 1940 to give better reception to listeners north of Perth.
By the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s broadcast a Top 40 format on 1000, later 990 kHz. The station secured significant listener market (AC Neilson) share despite a rival station (96FM) gaining a monopoly on the FM band in the 1980s.
On 31 December 1990, the station was one of two additional Perth radio stations to gain a licence to convert to the FM band. They became 92.9 6PM-FM; then subsequently PMFM. The official call sign was changed to 6PPM for regulatory purposes to reflect the move to FM. During most of the 1990s PMFM was Perth's number one radio station.
The 2000s saw PMFM change their name to The All New 92.9, and then to just 92.9. In February 2006, 92.9 changed its logo in line with the rest of the Today Network. In 2007 92.9 and sister station Mix 94.5 moved to a new purpose built building at 450 Roberts Road in Subiaco.
In December 2014, Southern Cross Austereo announced 92.9 will rebrand as Hit 92.9.The rebrand took place on 19 January 2015.
