East Africa Radio EA FM is the East Africa 24-hour entertainment free-to-air FM radio station. It operates from Dar es Salaam, the signal is delivered via satellite to Nairobi and Kampala, where it broadcasts terrestrially. EA FM's programming covers a variety of issues from news, current affairs show (local and international), lifestyle, entertainment, and others.

According to the Tanzania Media Measurement report by GeoPoll, with audience statistics for quarter of 2, 2018, EA FM’s audience share is at XX.XXX%.  This means it is ranked sixth among all radio stations.

There are no information available at the Tanzania Communication Regulatory Authority (TCRA) on East Africa FM. It’s business address leads to East Africa Television Limited and EA FM started its operations together with EATV – so a connection seems obvious. It is an associate company of IPP Limited. IPP Group Limited is a manufacturing, bottling and media conglomerate, which includes television, radio stations and newspapers. Its company profile requested at the Business Registrations and Licensing Agency (BRELA) shows that again Mengi and Agapitus Leon Nguma are IPP Group Limited.

Mengi was born in 1944 in Tanzania. He is a Tanzanian philanthropist, industrialist, media tycoon and the founder/Executive Chairman of IPP Group. He also is the vice president of the National Board of Accountants and Auditors, Tanzania.
