Shen Haixiong, president of China Media Group, says the new radio service will help to deepen the cooperation between the Chinese mainland with Hong Kong and Macao.
The station's new media platforms were also launched on Sunday.
The bay area consists of the Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions, as well as nine cities in Guangdong Province.
Chinese authorities in February unveiled the outline development plan for the Bay Area, aiming to develop the region into "a role model of high-quality development."
