The DX Century Club, or DXCC, is an amateur radio operating award earned by making contact with 100 or more geographic entities around the world.

The award is granted by (and a registered trademark of) the American Radio Relay League. Radio amateurs worldwide are eligible to apply although applicants from the US, its possessions and Puerto Rico must be ARRL members. Proof of two way contacts, either in the form of QSL cards or via digital entry into Logbook of The World (LoTW), must be submitted to qualify. Each DXCC award certificate is dated and individually numbered.

As amateur radio grew, achievement awards for working several distant places were developed. As early as 1926 the International Amateur Radio Union started issuing the Worked All Continents certificate. In 1934 R/9 magazine began the Worked All Zones award.[1] The ARRL started to examine the issue in 1932 and, after considerable work to determine what a "country" was, presented its criteria in 1935.[2] The first DXCC certificates were awarded in 1937, but the system was suspended during World War II. A new start began when American amateurs returned to the air on November 15, 1945, and the program has continued since that time.

The basic certificate is awarded to those amateur radio operators who successfully complete and confirm amateur radio communications with land based amateur radio stations located in at least 100 different entities[3] on the DXCC List.[4]

Entities are often, but not always, countries. Each entity contains some definable political or geographical distinctiveness. For example, although Hawaii is not a separate country from the United States, it is a separate DXCC entity due to its distance from the rest of the US.

The basic awards

There are 16 DXCC awards. Each award is earned the same way: by submission of proof of two-way amateur radio contact using the radio bands or transmission modes called for in the award rules. Mode-based awards are Mixed (any combination of modes), Phone (radiotelephone), CW (radiotelegraphy), RTTY (radioteletype), and Satellite (see OSCAR). Single-band awards are issued for 160 meters, 80 meters, 40 meters, 30 meters, 20 meters, 17 meters, 15 meters, 12 meters, 10 meters, 6 meters, and 2 meters.


Endorsement stickers for affixing to certificates or pins will be awarded as additional DXCC credits are granted. For the Mixed, Phone, CW, RTTY, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12 and 10-Meter DXCC, stickers are provided in exact multiples of 50 (i.e. 150, 200) etc. between 100 and 250 DXCC credits, in multiples of 25 between 250 and 300, and in multiples of 5 above 300 DXCC credits.[6]

As of October 2011, there are 341 entities on the current published DXCC List. The most recent additions to the DXCC List were the four arising out of the former Netherlands Antilles, which were added on October 13, 2010.[7], and South Sudan on July 14, 2011. Another 60 entities are also listed and marked as "Deleted", although count for credit if worked while still in existence. Examples in this group include former countries such as Czechoslovakia and extinct colonial areas like French West Africa.

5-Band DXCC

A 5-band DXCC award is awarded to hams who successfully complete and confirm two-way contacts with 100 or more entities on the current DXCC List on each of the 80, 40, 20, 15 and 10 meter amateur radio bands. Endorsements are awarded for working and confirming 100 or more entities on the current DXCC List on any of the 160, 30, 17, 12, 6 or 2 meter amateur radio bands. A 5-Band DXCC award plaque may also be purchased.

DXCC Honor Roll

A radio amateur who has confirmed contacts with 331 (total count - 10) or more entities on the current DXCC List is eligible for the DXCC Honor Roll.

The amateur with the highest DXCC Challenge total at the end of each year is awarded the Desoto Cup. The DeSoto Cup honors the memory of Clinton B.

A gold medal will be awarded to a first place winner who had won the Desoto Cup in a prior year. Each year, the ARRL announces the winner of the Desoto Cup and the top contenders above the 3000 level.

Station: DWRT FM

DWRT-FM, branded as 99.5 RT, is the Flagship FM radio station owned and operated by Real Radio Network Inc. in The Philippines. Its studio is located at Unit 906-B, Paragon Plaza Building, EDSA corner Reliance St, Mandaluyong City and transmitter is located at Palos Verdes Executive Village, Brgy. Seven Hills, Sumulong Highway, Antipolo City, Rizal, sharing the same site of 93.9 iFM. 99.5 RT is a 24-hour operating station except on Mondays where it signs-off at midnight, and except Holy Week of each year where it signs-off at midnight of Maundy Thursday and lasts until 5:30 am of Easter Sunday.

As 99.5 RT (1976-2006)

DZTR changed its call sign to DWRT-FM, moved to the 99.5 MHz frequency and branded itself as 99.5 RT in September 1976. Its studios were located for most of its existence on Ayala Avenue in the central business district of Makati, at one time in Pacific Bank Building. It was then originally owned and operated by Trans-Radio Broadcasting Corp. (currently operating Radyo Inquirer 990, Cebu's Y101, Davao's Rock 100.3, & Butuan's Majik 97.5, RT's original sister station). with owner Emilio Remedios Tuason, who also became one of the deejays (his on-air name was "ET"), until personal problems forced his retirement from the station in 1987.

99.5 RT became famous for playing the hits three months ahead of most other music stations because its programming philosophy did not pander to the masses nor cater to the lowest common denominator. It was more concerned with bringing the latest hits to the audience as soon as they were released by the artists. One of the most remembered examples of this was in the early 1980s when RT broke in the song "More To Lose" by the obscure English duo, Seona Dancing (one-half of which is the now famous lead actor and comic of the British television hit series The Office, Ricky Gervais). The station kept everyone guessing about the identity of the song by announcing the title as "Medium" and done by the artist "Fade", two words which were actually descriptions of the song: medium tempo with an ending that faded out.

Over the years, RT became popular with different slogans such as "The Rhythm Of The City" (1976–1996), "Red Hot Radio" (1983–1988), "Maximum Music" (1988-1996), "Source For The Best Hits" (1996–1998) and "Your Music Authority" (1998–2001), From 2001 - December 18, 2006 before it was rebranded, 99.5 RT's slogan was "The Most Hit Music".

RT was also home to some of America's popular hit countdown shows like American Top 40 and the Rick Dees Weekly Top 40. In the early 1980s (specifically 1983-1984), RT also ventured into the music-video business. As one of the pioneer music video shows in the Philippines, "Rhythm Of The City" which aired on Tuesdays at 7:30 pm on then government-owned MBS Channel 4 (now NBN Channel 4), showcased then ground-breaking videos from artists such as Men At Work, Naked Eyes, Real Life, Michael Jackson, and some of the best acts in North America during a time when then-fledgling MTV had not yet established its presence in the Asian region.

It is also known for its oldies show, 24K Friday playing the hits from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

It was also known as the first radio station in The Philippines to have ventured into having a home on the World Wide Web, launching its bulletin board in 1995.

On June 14, 1996, Trans-Radio sold RT to Supreme Broadcasting Corporation (now Real Radio Network Inc.) and moved to the Royal Match Building. Under new management, the station tried its best to maintain its upscale and niche-market on-air identity and programming format, unlike many other stations which reformatted after being sold.

On April 1999, it moved to its present location at the Paragon Plaza Building, along EDSA, Mandaluyong City.

Over the next few years, 99.5 RT's sound slowly became similar to other CHR radio stations in Manila. By 2004, most of its veteran DJs had left and were replaced by younger ones. During the period, programs like Up and Coming (a new music countdown show, which later split into two: RT Top 10 Biggies (daily) and the RT40 (weekly)), On the Decks (a dance show hosted and with live dance music mixes by Dj David Ardiente, which later became David's House), RT Sunday Sessions (where performed live in the radio station's studio), The Get Up and Go Show with Joe Schmoe, Alex and Lellie, Dinner and Drive Show (formerly known as Da Brainy Bunch), and The Playground with Da Kid, Lexi Locklear and BB Fred were developed. Beginning in 2004, RT put up an annual concert event called, "Ripe Tomatoes", featuring up to 30 OPM bands playing back-to-back on a single night.

In 2006, a corporate decision was made to rename RT to "HiT FM" starting January 2007. Thus, at midnight on December 18, 2006, the station signed off as the First iteration of 99.5 RT. For the next two weeks, the station played non-stop music, with occasional liners from the DJs, and teasers about the new station. On January 1, 2007, it officially signed on as HiT 99.5.

As Hit 99.5/99.5 Hit FM (2007-2008)

On January 1, 2007, Hit 99.5 signed on and presented almost-uninterrupted music programming with live announcers and its new programs officially debuted on January 8, 2007. The programming was essentially the same as RT's, but more content-driven rather than music oriented similar to sister station in Davao 105.9 Mix FM. It catered to a young audience, whose demographics included kids in high-school and college; from the aspirational to the affluent backgrounds. It used cutting edge production techniques and materials to accent the music with an upbeat and hip sound image that identified the station distinctly from competition. In August of that year, its on-air name was changed to 99.5 Hit FM.

The end of Hit FM

99.5 Hit FM signed off for the last time on Holy Wednesday, March 19, 2008. Some Hit FM jocks later moved to Jam 88.3 and Magic 89.9. The last song "Nice to Know You" by Incubus was played before the holy week.

As Campus 99.5 (2008)
Campus 99.5

The 99.5 frequency resumed broadcast as 99.5 Campus FM on Easter Sunday, March 23, 2008, with some of the announcers coming from Barangay LS 97.1 (formerly "Campus Radio 97.1") and some of the retained Hit FM jocks. The new incarnation of 99.5 reflected the spirit of the former Campus Radio. Early in May, 2008, it was renamed Campus 99.5. The on-air format was essentially the same, with familiar programs and segments and jocks from Campus Radio 97.1 re-introduced later on.

Collectively, the station's on-air announcers were known as the Campus Air Force, as they were with DWLS-FM.

Special programs

* Campus Classic Weekend - a whole day special format featuring classic songs from the 1990s and early 2000s, on Saturdays and Sundays, and the successor to Campus Radio's Retro Jam
o Revenge of the 80's - a special show on the Campus Classic Weekend heard on Sundays 8:00-9:00 a.m. and 6:00-7:00 p.m. presenting the memorable hits from the 1980s.
o Jazz Downbeat - a reincarnation of a jazz program on WLS-FM during the late 1980s, it plays 4 hours of non-stop jazz music, every Sundays from 8:00-12:00 M.N. Although its playlist dates back to the 1970s, it is considered a part of Campus Classic Weekend.
* Campus Aircheck - select students from Metro Manila colleges and universities are given a hands-on deejaying experience.
* The Top 20 at 12 - the longest-running countdown show in the Philippines and Asia, which started out with Kiss FM 101.1 (now Yes FM 101.1)(every Saturday from 12nn-2pm) in mid 1986 and was originally hosted by "George Boone" and "Jeremiah Junior" as co-host and Executive Producer. Then with 97.1 WLS-FM (weekdays at 12nn)hosted by "The Triggerman" in the 90's. On its return on April 25, 2008, "No Air" by Jordin Sparks featuring Chris Brown became the first #1 song on the weekly edition. "Damn Regret" by emo rock band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus became the first daily #1 on April 29, 2008. Unlike in its previous home, the weekly countdown usually happens on Friday nights, at 10:00 p.m.-12:00 a.m., because of Campus Classic Weekend; the daily edition retains the 12:00-1:00 p.m. afternoon slot.
* Front.Center - where a certain singer or act is featured every month and is given preferential airplay by the hour with various songs. It was announced in July 2008.

Two programs from 99.5 Hit FM were retained for the Campus format:

* BrewRats - Ramon Bautista, Tado and Angel from the TV show, Strangebrew, in a three hour, anything goes radio show
* David's House - a Saturday night show with house music mixed live by David Ardiente.

The end of Campus FM

On the afternoon of August 14 at 4:00 pm, the management abruptly discontinued Campus 99.5, due to management difficulties. The station then switched to an automated all-music format with only pre-recorded station ID's played intermittently between songs. BrewRats! continued on its usual schedule until August 21, after which it went on a one week hiatus. On August 24, a new set of stingers announced that a new format and station image would be premiered in days.

Campus Radio revived on March 21, 2009 as an internet radio station.

The return of 99.5 RT (2008-present)

On September 1, 2008 at 6 a.m., after two weeks of automated music programming, the station resumed its broadcast under the reinstated name 99.5 RT. Joshua Z was the first DJ to go on board that morning, followed by other jocks who have worked with the frequency's three incarnations (mostly from the RT roster and HiT and one from Campus). The station initially reused its old and familiar slogan, "The Rhythm Of The City". The playlist is more progressive and experimental, attempting to sound like RT's first Iteration. The deejays have a collective tone similar to parent station, Magic 89.9, due to the use of Tagalog-English or "Taglish" during live spiels.

They also introduced its 2nd slogan, from 2009 - 2010, dubbing the station as playing "The Best Music on the Planet", which is now used in sister station in Davao, 105.9 Mix FM. For every Summer, it brought back the "Red Hot Radio" slogan, which was originally used from 1983 - 1988. Since 2010, they launched The Farm, an on air training program for the beginner jocks.

Since October 2010, RT began to play some Modern Rock music, earning its 3rd slogan, "The Drive", after the Sunday night-only program of the same name. It was a call for the demise of NU 107, which happened a month later. Ironically, they rarely play some songs from the late 90s and early 2000s, which are usually heard on 24K Weekend. However, CHR is still retained as its initial format. In June 2011, RT dropped "The Drive" in favor of its previous slogan "The Best Music on the Planet", as an attempt to bring back RT's old image.

DWRR 101.9 Tambayan

DWRR 101.9 Tambayan Live

DWRR-FM, branded as Tambayan 101.9, is the flagship FM station of the ABS–CBN Corporation in the Philippines. It is a 24-hour operating station (except on Mondays where it signs-off at midnight) that plays OPM, Hip-Hop, R&B, K-Pop, J-Pop, and Foreign Hit Songs from the USA, Japan, UK, South Korea, and around the world.

Its transmitter is located at the Eugenio Lopez Center, Barangay Sta.Cruz Sumulong Highway, Antipolo City, Province of Rizal.

[edit] 1960-1986

DZYK-FM is the first FM radio station in the Philippines and sole station of the former CBN (now merged into ABS-CBN) which originally founded in 1960 contains oldies music of the 60s and 70s and in 1967 after merge, ABS-CBN launches another FM station called DZAQ-FM 93.9 and off the air in 1972 with DZYK, later absorbed to the newly-merged giant network ABS-CBN until the station off air by the Marcoses under Martial Law. Manned by eight DJ's, it was popularized to listeners in Metro Manila area even the introduction of The Beatles era to beat. When martial law was declared in 1972, both DZYK-FM, DZXL-AM and ABS-CBN were shut down under strict censorship as the FM station takes over to Roberto Benedicto and changed to DWOK-FM (as OK 101.9) of the Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation originally aired in 1979 (as DWWK, a jazz format radio station). Manned by Jing Magsaysay, Wayne Enage, Ed Picson, Dody Lacuna, Ronnie Malig, Pinky Villarama and Ronnie Quintos. DWOK is an AM-formatted FM station which features news and public service programs even music from the 1950s to the 1970s came from the former DZYK similar to those from AM counterparts. However, DWOK, DWAN and BBC-2 had been dissolved since the government-controlled radio and TV stations were stormed by reformist rebels and it was returned and re-aired to ABS-CBN after the 1986 EDSA Revolution as DWKO.


The fall of the Marcos Regime brought about the return of ABS-CBN. In July 1986, then newly-formed Presidential Commission on Good Governance turned two radio stations, DWWW (under 630 kHz) and DWOK-FM, over to ABS-CBN from Marcos crony Roberto Benedicto. DWOK (the former FM station of Benedicto-owned Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation) was renamed DWKO and resumed broadcasting four months later. Lito Balquiedra Jr., Vice-President for Radio, spearheaded the return of the giant network to the local broadcasting scene. The station's former disc jockey Peter Musngi (then known as Peter Rabbit has worked Knock-Out Radio 101.9 and Zoo FM 101.9) is the network's voice-over from the reopening in 1986 to present. The slogan of the station is "Panalo Ka Talaga!" who voiced by Peter Musngi known as Peter Rabbit during his days in DWKO and DZOO.

The network started recruiting both experienced and new employees and DJ's. Prior to the adoption of masa format, all FM stations are English based with the use of the English language during 1980s and 1990s. After days of careful planning, DWKO was born – the first ever FM radio station with an AM format, carrying the name "Knock-Out Radio 101.9" in October 1986 (a month after the re-airing of ABS-CBN on channel 2) and playing the best hits during that time. Since then, KO-Radio airs Pinoy hits from singers of the 1970s and 1980s such as Rico J. Puno, Yoyoy Villame, APO Hiking Society, and more when it was debuted, even OPM stars like Gary V, Regine Velasquez, Janno Gibbs and Donna Cruz, and Christmas songs are also debuted there. DWKO-FM was re-changed after its broadcast ended on February 28, 1987 as DZOO.


Less than a year later on March 1, 1987 (following The Star Network era), the station reformatted and became known as Zoo FM 101.9 (DZOO-FM) Hayop Talaga! (manned by a group of eight DJ's) which is best known for its diamond logo and a slightly uptrend pop sound led to the introduction of OPM music and disco hits. It was also served as the home of OPM stars like Gary V, Randy Santiago, Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid and others.Due to its popularity, Zoo FM 101.9 introduced OPM songs both in disco and love which were used after the implementation of Executive Order No. 255 by President Corazon Aquino and made as requested favorites among listeners from morning to evening, because Zoo FM is being competed with other FM stations such as 97.1 WLS-FM, 99.5 RT, Magic 89.9, 89 DMZ, NU 107 and more. But because of a massive competition from the rival DWLS, Zoo FM 101.9's DJ's and staff are decided to end broadcasting having faltered from DWLS's dominant listener ratings (and with GMA-7's TV ratings uprisings) in January 1989. Two years later, DZOO-FM was signed off as it ended its broadcasting on the night of July 31, 1989 (at 11:00 PM), giving DZOO-FM turned to new callsign station, DWRR-FM. Listeners and DJ's bade goodbye to Zoo FM which gave its final broadcast, and with the last song Farewell by Raymond Lauchengco.


On the morning of August 1, 1989 (at 6:00 AM), it reformatted again and this time it became popularly known as "Radio Romance", hence the initials RR, playing all easy-listening love songs, manned by all-female jocks (fewer male jocks are also added). That year also signaled the station's first nationwide reach when 103.1 MHz Baguio simulcasted its signals, ensuring travelers from Manila to as far north as Ilocos Sur, uninterrupted listening of its programs. At the same time, OPM songs are also played on DWRR to produce its weekend OPM program every Sunday.

"Radio Romance" became a title of the movie as well as a theme song of the station composed by Jose Mari Chan during its popularity, On September 30, 1996 Radio Romance finally signed-off due to give way to its station reformat.


On October 1, 1996, WRR regenerated itself into a mainstream pop music station branded WRR 101.9 All the hits, all the time! in response to growing trend of "masa" radio or FM radio for the masses launched by 102.7 Star FM a year earlier. This format plays not only love songs, but also dance and rock hits. In 1998, it changed to WRR 101.9 For Life! giving life to listeners with entertainment.

In 2005, DWRR-FM's on-air personalities had dropped the station call letters (WRR) and would just say "Alam Mo Na 'Yan! 101.9 For Life!" (You Already Know It! 101.9 For Life!) lasting from 2005–2008. In late 2008, the station went another rebrand as "Bespren 101.9 For Life!" (Bestfriend 101.9 For Life!).

The station had its last broadcast under the 101.9 For Life! brand on September 19, 2009 and underwent a transition period playing automated music in preparation for a relaunch of DWRR-FM's new branding on October 1, 2009. However, due to the onslaught of Typhoon Ondoy in Manila, the station rebrand was postponed for almost a month. For the time being, DWRR-FM temporarily went under the name "ABS-CBN 101.9 FM" or Plain "101.9".

The postponed relaunch was set on November 4, 2009. Prior to the announcement of the launch date, the station's DJs began providing live spiels again every top of the hour since October 12. But as part of the ongoing transition, the disc jockeys had limited their use of the neither "Bespren" nor the "For Life!" slogan and no longer mention the format of the station's SMS syntax except the text hotline itself.


On November 4 at 9:12pm, there was a broadcast about the history of DWRR. After that, it relaunched as Tambayan 101.9 (tambayan is the Tagalog word for hangout) starting with the theme song & live debut in A Venue in Makati. Tambayan 101.9 Launched its Video Streaming called Tambayan TV where your favorite jocks are seen live from the booth. In between songs playing, some information plugs were seen(e.g. Tambayan's Slumbook). Just like DZMM Teleradyo, plugs were also aired during commercial gaps. Tambayan TV is aired 24 hours over the Internet

The station was also launched via HD Radio technology.

DWBR Business Radio

Station: DWBR Business Radio

DWBR, broadcasting as 104.3 Business Radio , is a radio station on the Frequency Modulation, transmitting in the Metro Manila area, owned and operated by the government of the Philippines through the Philippine Broadcasting Service (PBS) under the Office of the Press Secretary.

The station also covers and reports on the latest business stories and issues in the Philippines with its coverage of the Philippine stock market in the mornings. The station also boosts itself with various talk programs that discusses relevant matters concerning business, the environment.

Sunday programming in the afternoon can be described as nostalgic with veteran radio disc jockeys, considered as the pioneer voices in Philippine radio going on board for "Golden Years" with the likes of Ernie Zarate, Jo San Diego, Barr Samson, Lito Gorospe and Bong Lapira. Previously, voices of Philippine broadcast icons like Ben Aniceto, Eddie Ilarde, including the late greats Johnny Wilson and Eddie Mercado were heard on DWBR. On the news programming part, veteran radio and television news anchor Bon Vibar can still be heard on DWBR with the same old clear and crisp voice of an unaccented English. Veteran social-political commentarist Larry Henares still dishes out issues of the day on his radio program, "Make My Day" from Monday to Friday.

The radio station also promotes OPM or Original Pilipino Music by playing two to three Filipino songs every hour, mostly Filipino music of the recent decades. The station also features on Sunday night a special program that highlights traditional Filipino music called the "kundiman" and the "harana," or music of serenade.

Audience Profile

DWBR 104.3 FM positioned its programming line-up towards the A, B, & C markets, with the sub-niche towards the “baby boomer” generation or those with ages 40 to 60. Most of the listeners of the station are business leaders.

DWBM FM Crossover

Station: DWBM Crossover

105.1 Crossover (DWBM 105.1 MHz Metro Manila) is a music FM station owned and operated by Mareco Broadcasting Network, Inc. in the Philippines. The station's studio is located at Sta. Mesa Heights, Quezon City, while its transmitter is located at Brgy. San Carlos, Binangonan, Rizal. The station is also available via streaming audio on their website. Broadcasts daily from 5:45am to 2:00am except Holy Week where it is off-the-air on Good Friday and resumes on Black Saturday.

Debut on AM

The Mareco Broadcasting Network, Inc. made its debut in the radio industry in 1963. Its first AM station DZBM, originally served only as a promotional venue for Mareco's own Mabuhay and Villar Records. It also held the local license to produce and market foreign music labels from a peak of over a hundred major international recording companies. During this time, DZBM played the latest and widest variety of popular music and was consistently no. 1 in the surveys, contributing significantly in popularizing radio as a prime entertainment medium in Manila.

Rebranding as Power 105

With its increasing listenership, MBN eventually opened DZBM to commercial advertising. For enhanced quality, the station moved from AM to the FM band and became known as Power 105 BM FM at 105.1 MHz in 1985 competing with WXB 102 (now 102.7 Star FM). It played New Wave and Disco music until 1991 when Power 105 BM FM shut down.

Crossover Era

From this time, the Network underwent several changes in management, as well as programming, with the end result being 105.1 Crossover which changed to Jazz station competing directly with Citylite 88.3 (now Jam 88.3) and Joey @ Rhythms 92.3 (now 92.3 News FM). over a decade, jazz enthusiasts both young and old have made 105.1 Crossover their place on the radio. From smooth jazz and rhythm & blues, samba to new standards. The programming is spiced up with special shows and segments including Understanding Bossa Nova hosted by premier Filipino bossa nova artist Eileen Sison and The Dave Koz Show hosted by Grammy-nominated saxophone player Dave Koz that taken their listeners to the heart of smooth jazz and highlight exceptional musical artistry.


MBNI then realized its plans for expansion with the opening 99.1 Crossover (DYBM-FM) in Bacolod City on February 1997, 90.7 Crossover (DYAC-FM) in Cebu on September of the same year, and 93.1 Crossover (DXLR-FM) in Davao on June 1999, bringing the Crossover concept to the southern area of the country. The Manila broadcast is now also heard live over 105.1 FM in Baguio City. The Crossover sound is also webcast worldwide in real time on their official website.

Barangay LS 97.1 Manila

You are listening to Barangay LS 97.1 Manila

DWLS, operating as Barangay LS 97.1, is the flagship FM radio station of Radio GMA Network Inc. (RGMA, a subsidiary of GMA Network Inc.) in the Philippines.[1] The station's studio is located at the GMA Network Center in Quezon City, and its transmitter is located at Tandang Sora, Quezon City, Philippines. DWLS is operating for 24 hours except during the Holy Week where it signs off from midnight of Maundy Thursday until 5 am of Easter Sunday.

The station's call letters (DWLS) were derived from the name Loreto, wife of former GMA (then RBS) owner, the late Robert "Uncle Bob" Stewart.

[edit] As DZXX and 97.1 WLS FM/Campus Radio 97.1

It first aired in 1955, when Uncle Bob opened the DZXX-AM station, the first pop music station in the country on AM format. The format of the station is Pop Music and oldies. DZXX-AM, DZBB-AM and DZBB-TV closed on the date when Martial Law was declared. 2 years after RBS was sold by Uncle Bob to the consortium of then Rizal Governor Gilberto Duavit Sr., Menardo Jimenez and Atty. Felipe Gozon, Uncle Bob's legal adviser, DWLS-FM was opened and named after Loreto de Hemedes-Stewart, Uncle Bob's wife. This is also formatted to play "oldies" and pop music. On February 28, 1986, a few days after the EDSA Revolution, The Giant 97.1 WLS-FM was born and pop, rock, disco and OPM music as well as love songs are introduced. It also served as the home of pop and OPM stars like Gary Valenciano, Regine Velasquez, Randy Santiago, Ogie Alcasid, Janno Gibbs, Donna Cruz, among others as then President Corazon Aquino signed Executive Order No. 255 on July 25, 1987 which mandated that FM radio stations introduce OPM music on top of every hour. When GMA was renamed as the "Rainbow Satellite Network" in the early 1990s, the station became Campus Radio 97.1 WLS-FM as it was reformatted on April 30, 1992. In 1992, "Campus Aircheck" took to the airwaves as an institution of sorts for aspiring DJs to get hired by Campus Radio and was touted as "the first school on the air". For several years, it only aired modern pop, RnB, rock and OPM hits during its weekday run while hits from the recent years were mixed in with the current hits during weekends.

The longest-running program on the station was the Top 20 at 12 where the top 20 songs of the day were counted down in the mold of BBC Radio 1's The Official Chart Show at noontime. On weekdays and Saturdays, only the top 12 songs were actually played, while the Sunday edition is for the cumulative results for the whole week, where all 20 songs were played. At New Year's Eve, the top twenty songs of the year were played until the stroke of midnight. Top 20 at 12 is the longest-running chart show in Philippine FM history. Its Manila edition has been shelved to make way for the station's 2007 reformat, while for a time it has been included as standard programming in RGMA's provincial stations, albeit the chart listings are local. The provincial edition was later renamed Top 5 Ngayon, Hindi Kahapon (Top 5 Today, Not Yesterday), which still broadcasts at the stroke of noon on weekdays. The last song that was #1 before the reformat was "Love Team" by Itchyworms.

Other notable programs and segments included:

* InfoPop, where the on-air personality on board would give more information about the artists in the music scene as well as the songs and the stories behind the songs, and as well as answer questions from listeners about these acts;
* Retro Jam (first entitled The Great Music Jam), where old songs (some as late as the 1980s) were played again, originally, on Saturdays and Sundays, and later, all day Sunday;
* Other People's Music (OPM), a one-hour program where certain personalities outside the world of music appear as guests and feature their favorite songs;
* Front.Center, where a certain singer or act is featured every month and is given preferential airplay by the hour with various songs;
* Campus Aircheck, where students from Metro Manila colleges and universities were given the chance to experience being an actual DJ. The original edition of Campus Aircheck was copied by other FM stations throughout Manila, as well as RGMA's provincial stations;
* Rock-It Launcher, where a featured band or artist launches their latest album through a mini-concert aired live from the hottest bars/gimmick spots in Metro Manila; and
* Clubnights, where one gets to hear the latest club/house music tracks at par with music played in bars.

From Campus Radio to Barangay LS

On February 14, 2007, listeners bade goodbye to Campus Radio 97.1 WLS-FM as RGMA, through its head Mike Enriquez, launched 97.1 Barangay LS Forever! Its format is comparable to that of 90.7 Love Radio, 101.9 For Life! (now Tambayan 101.9), Yes FM 101.1, I-FM 93.9, 102.7 Star FM and Energy FM 91.5 with on-air personalities speaking only in Tagalog (especially the timechecks), and playing bubblegum pop, OPM and other mass-based music forms and music popularized by GMA's stable of recording artists, a 100% turnaround from the former Campus Radio format that played Top 40/adult contemporary hit music, English-only on-air jocks, and its listener base composed mostly of college students and young urban professionals.
Barangay LS Forever! Logo

Despite Campus Radio's dominant ratings performance in the pop category, GMA's FM radio sales unit failed to sell the format. With consistently low sales figures, this paved the way for Mike Enriquez to successfully persuade the network's upper management to agree to shift WLS to a seemingly more profitable "masa" format. Unfortunately, industry reception is lukewarm and Barangay LS has yet to regain the revenue losses incurred by the shift of advertisers to competing FM stations.

However, this was not the first time that the station was repositioned for the masa audience. During its Campus Radio days, WLS-FM first went for its current target audience base from 1995-1999. The current slogan, "Forever!", was the very same tagline used during that period.

As mandated by Enriquez, aside from a major change in the on-air language and the music, jokes also became a staple on Barangay LS, with the DJs delivering scripted jokes on the air in between songs. Soon after the reformat, the station opened their text and phone lines to joke contributions from listeners (although it would still be the DJs themselves who deliver them on the air).

The station also began working much more closely with its mother network primarily by providing live coverage for its special events. Among the GMA events covered by Barangay LS include the network's "Sumamer Ka Na!" special at the Marikina Sports Complex in March 2007 (which included a live telecast of "SOP" and "S Files", and the "StarStruck" 2007 Final Judgment), the "Kapusolympics" 57th anniversary, and mall tours featuring the network's recording artists or promoting GMA's upcoming TV programs.

Just before the 2007 general elections, Barangay LS, along with sister station DZBB and the RGMA network nationwide, did a radio simulcast of "Isang Tanong", a televised senatorial candidates' forum produced by GMA News and Public Affairs.

Since June 24, 2007, GMA's top-rating Sunday noontime variety show "SOP" has also been simulcast over Barangay LS. The radio broadcast is entitled "Barangay LSOP".

Some other current features of the reformatted station include "Barangay Blockbusters" (premieres/block screenings of the latest local and foreign movies), "Eskwela Kwela Tour" (mini-concerts held in different schools all over Metro Manila featuring popular bands and artists—a revival of the campus tours under the old Campus Radio format) and "Fanatxt All-Stars" (a 30-minute talk show every Monday and Wednesday mornings, wherein a selected listener/Fanatxt subscriber has a chance to interact with the featured GMA star).

In June 2007, 97.1 Barangay LS was premiered on MYX with the 97.1 Barangay LS DJs Churvilyn and Atong Bomb, with MYX VJ Nikki.

Another Reformat
Barangay LS Ayos! Logo
Barangay LS Ayos Gyud! Logo

Last January 16, 2008 at around 6 pm, the station launched its new tagline, Ayos!, which is also the tagline for RGMA's provincial Campus Radio stations. It still uses its slogan Forever! and sometimes they say Barangay LS 97.1 Forever Ayos!. The tag was also used by video channel MTV Philippines. The reformat adds Mike Enriquez's formula for toilet and sexually explicit humor with more mass-based music mixed with high-end hits and even from talents of GMA Records' rival recording companies like ABS-CBN's Star Records.

That same day, almost all of the station's current jocks who were also from the former Campus Radio format, and after years of loyal service to the GMA Network, were summarily dismissed by Mike Enriquez and replaced unceremoniously by jocks from RGMA provincial radio stations as well as jocks from other masa stations. Choosing to ignore the veteran staff's improving ratings, Enriquez deemed them unfit to take the format to number one overall in the masa ratings game. Unknown to Barangay LS jocks, Enriquez had been secretly preparing new staff and management for WLS. Abruptly and without warning, he announced that the former staff would no longer go on air and immediately installed his new crew. With a rebranded station, Enriquez again audaciously promised to take Barangay LS to number one overall by mid 2008. An audacious promise that remains to be kept. With GMA Network's flagship FM station's current direction and hopes for success, Enriquez aims to use the new Barangay LS to increase revenue and redeem the troubled RGMA Radio Network which he heads.[2]

In April 2008, a theme song was made for Barangay LS and a commercial of Barangay LS was featured on TV, in 2009, Barangay LS added a Visayan word in the slogan "Ayos!" to engage people in Visayas to listen to them. Now, their new slogan is "Ayos Gyud!" means "Ayos Talaga!("It's really OK!)".

On January 17, 2011, facing competition with the latest masa stations, the new tagline "Tugstugan Na!" was launched and the station adapted the "crazy fun" sound brand in the market. Mike Enriquez was replaced by Glenn F. Allona as program director/station manager, aiming Barangay LS to bring back the focus on the staple of FM Programming which is music.

On February 20, 2011, a new TV ad featuring the DJs, along with Mike "Pekto" Nacua, Sam Pinto, Gwen Zamora, and Jake Vargas was launched on Party Pilipinas.

Bambi FM Mindoro DWFM 104.1

Bambi FM Mindoro DWFM 104.1 Live

DWFM or Radyo5 92.3 News FM is the Flagship FM radio station owned by Nation Broadcasting Corporation and operated by TV5 in the Philippines. The station's studios are located at 762 Quirino Highway, San Bartolome, Novaliches, Quezon City and the transmitter is located at Antipolo City.


Previously known as MRS 92.3 - Most Requested Song, Joey @ Rhythms 92.3 and later 923 Joey, the station started broadcasting from pre-martial law under the call letters DWFM.

Nation Broadcasting Corporation was born in 1963 as a result of the vision of one of Philippine radio's pioneers - Abelardo Yabut, Sr. Starting as a one-station affair with its Zamboanga AM station DXYZ and Manila AM station DZAM, NBC grew to a network of 16 AM stations. In the same year, DWFM started broadcasts and it broadcasts old songs.

Manila's third FM station (after DZFX-FM/now DWYS) 101.1 of Makati Broadcasting Network (now owned by Manila Broadcasting Company), and DZYK-FM (now DWRR-FM) 101.9 of Chronicle Broadcasting Network (now ABS-CBN Corporation) DWFM adopted the MRS format - "Most Requested Song" which featured soft pop, ballads, fairly adult contemporary. MRS 92.3 also named as DWFM 92.3 quickly became one of the top rated stations on FM and kept that distinction throughout most of its life, MRS was one of a handful of FM stations in Manila that defined the very popular adult contemporary format for a long time. With the success of DWFM in Manila, NBC also established Cebu's first FM station, DYNC-FM 101.9, in 1975. Within the same year, NBC put up DXFM-FM 101.9 in Davao, the first FM station in Davao and the whole of Mindanao. NBC then progressd into two divisions, NBC AM Network (16 AM stations now owned by Pastor Apollo C. Quiboloy) and NBC FM-Stereo Network (13 FM stations), NBC is named as the First Radio Satellite network in the Philippines on the 1980s.

The company took on new owners in the mid-90's when the Yabut family divested its shareholdings in the whole network (both FM and AM) to then real estate magnate and Speaker of the House Manny Villar. The station managed to maintain its original format without any changes.

As Joey 92.3/923 Joey

In 1998, NBC was acquired by MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund. With the new owners came a new management team, a new corporate logo and a new sound.

MRS was replaced by "Joey" in 1998. Radio executive Francis Lumen assumed the position of president and CEO bringing with him his previous 10 years of managing the now defunct DWCT Citylite 88.3 (now Jam 88.3). Joey went on to target the higher echelon crowd - mostly embassy officials and deejays who were displaced by the departure of Citylite 88.3 in 2003, with a mix of jazz fusion, pop jazz and crossover sound, with a little more of the European jazz flavor.

Its initial reincarnation came in the form of Joey 92.3 Rhythms - Joey also heralding the re-branding of its FM network using the same female names. The NBC AM Network was also rebranded - Angel Radio (now Sonshine Radio by Pastor Apollo Quiboloy). As well, its official call letters were changed from DWFM to DZRU.

It was also during this period that NBC entered into a joint venture with MTV Asia for an MTV Philippines feed via NBC's UHF Network (Channel 41).

In 2005, the Rhythms tag was dropped in favor of 923 Joey - It's a Groove Thing.

In January 2007, a new management team was brought on board. After 9 years as Joey, the team decided to re-format and reposition the network to meet the challenges of the evolving FM industry. Veteran broadcaster and media executive Raymund Miranda (previously with Real Radio RK96, KY91.5. GMA Network and The Walt Disney Company South East Asia/Korea), radio executive and current GMA-7 voice-over Al Torres (Al W Leader - 99.5RT, RK96, Kiss 101.1 and The Gentle Wind DWSM), along with veteran radio sales executive Amy Victa (RK96, Lite Rock 96.3) joined forces in this next step.

Together with the new team, the butterfly was dropped from the logo and the official call letters were returned to DWFM, the original call letters of the station.


On Easter Sunday, 8 April 2007 at exactly 12:01 am, 92.3 bid goodbye to Joey and surprised avid listeners with a new sound, new station liners and a return to its original call letters. Before playing the very first song under its new format, the station played this liner: "This is xFM. The New Equation for Good Music". From then on, xFM played ambient, chill, down-tempo, electronica, house, lounge, trip-hop and indie music - music more at home in clubs than radio. Interestingly enough, from August 2007 until the end of xFM's first iteration, easy listening tracks, which were a staple during the station's existence as 923 Joey, made its way again to the supposedly electronica-and-indie station's playlist, which led to the scrapping of the groundbreaking format on January 2008. "re-birth" was instituted on February 2008 with the adoption of a very popular Adult Contemporary format "Smooth Jazz", thus reverting it to the same format as it had before (as 923 Joey). 92.3 xFM has been re-branded into XFM 92.3 and adopted the slogans "Light N Up!" and "Light N Up Manila!" xFM 92.3 follows the likes of smooth jazz stations such as KNUA, KTWV and other stations that target the adult listeners. Coupled with R & B and contemporary pop favorites, xFM 92.3 mixes current smooth jazz selections and old memorable jazz favorites. xFM 92.3 has metamorphosed to become a light, vibrant and relaxing station to listen to in Metro Manila.

In its run as a smooth jazz station, xFM used the following slogans:

* "Stress Free Radio"
* "Cool, Hip, Light, Smooth and all that Jazz"
* "Light N Up/Light N Up Manila"

As U92

On October 1, 2009, NBC management discontinued the XFM smooth jazz format after a year and seven months. In its place, a contemporary-hit radio format was fielded identifying itself as U92, with the youth-oriented slogan "Cool To Be U". The station was labeled as a radio affiliate of MTV Philippines. The on-air personalities were a mix of former and current MTV Philippines VJ's, celebrities and career radio people. U92 broadcast from a state-of-the-art studio at Silver City Mall, Frontera Verde Complex, Pasig City.

U92 was manned by a group led by Francis Lumen, president of All Youth Channels (AYC), which ran MTV Philippines. Lumen was a former NBC radio executive and Raven Broadcasting Corporation president.

On September 30, 2010 at 9:00 PM, U92 shut down.

DZXL History

The modern DZXL started as DZHP, then associated with Philippines Herald in the '60s. In 1975, The fully automated classy music station DZHP became a drama-personality and adopted a new call sign – DWXL. The call letters lasted until 1987 when it changed again to its present DZXL. (Note that the "old DZXL ID" was owned by the Lopezes but the station was closed by President Marcos in 1972). The "new" DWXL/DZXL programming was formally launched in 1977 with a great line-up of soap opera and radio personalities. The “drama” segment was eight hours daily starting at 9am. Among the best know talents were Luz Fernandez, Matutina, Tony Angeles, Augusto Victa, Lito Legazpi, Myrna Rosales, Kris Daluz, Vangie Labalan, Mario O’hara, Fundador Soriano, Joey Galvez, and more. These pool of top-rated drama talents was the source of power and strength of dramas and “tele-serye” of DZXL. This was made possible because of Wilfredo "Baby" Camomot, then Vice President of RMN. He orchestrated the drastic changes of RMN nationwide programming format from “classy” to “drama-personality” targeting the grassroot audience. The remaining hours of the 24/7 broadcast time was focused on personality and news.

The pioneering anchors/announcers were spearheaded by Fiorel Salvo with the late Johnny De Leon's "side-kick", Ngo-ngo (of Bataang Matamis fame). Others were Al Mendez, Nick Mendoza, Jun Recafrente, Ely Cruz Ramirez, et al. During the '80s, Mel Tiangco, Jay Sonza and Bobby Guanzon came on board. In early '90s, Rod Navarro signed in. The current anchors are listed below. These anchors/personalities were fully backed up by News Reporters whose names appear below.

At the start of the '80s, the political climate in the country was changing drastically. The president’s health was deteriorating and the uneasiness and continuous anti-government rhetoric from those opposing the system was increasing. Hence, to cater to the changes, the station slowly refocused its programming to news and current affairs. News personnel were increased tremendously. Field Reporters units were created. Max suquit was hired to head the department. Programs like “Over-A-Cup-Of Coffee” by Ka Doroy Valencia and “Manu-Mano” anchored by Fiorel Salvo dominated the airwaves. All other personality programs were loaded with up-to-the minute news reports. “Breaking News” were heard first from DZXL. The station was also first to use an amateur radio group “Tiger Civic Action Group” to assist in the live traffic reports from the field covering the metropolitan Manila area morning until afternoon. Another civic group “Voltax” composed of ordinary taxi drivers helped in the midnight public service program anchored by Ely Cruz Ramirez. Another pioneering program was Fiorel Salvo's “Job Match” which have been honored to help and assist in the safe overseas and local job hunting of the jobless workforce.

For over 50 years now,RMN remains committed to give the people real public service and true up-to-the-minute news.RMN is home to renowned broadcasters: Jose Mari Velez, Harry Gasser, Jay Sonza, John Susi, Rod Navarro, Raffy Tulfo and many others.

DZRJ Radyo Bandido 810 khz AM

DZRJ-AM (810 kHz Metro Manila), also known by its tagline The Voice of the Philippines, is an AM radio station of the Rajah Broadcasting Network, Inc. in the Philippines. The station was located on the roofdeck and tower of the J&T Building along Ramon Magsaysay Boulevard (a street is otherwise known as "Sta.Mesa"). Its present location is at the Ventures Building-1, General Luna Street, Makati City, while its radio transmitter is located along Quirino Highway, Novaliches, Quezon City.

Boss Radio

DZRJ-AM was originally found in the broadcast frequency of 780 kilohertz on the AM band. It carried the tagline, "DzRJ: Boss Radio", which later evolved into "DzRJ, The Rock of Manila" as it hosted a daily show called "Pinoy Rock 'n' Rhythm" (later shortened to "Pinoy Rock"), which was conceived by DzRJ's original station manager, Alan Austria ("Double-A") and its program director, Emil Quinto ("Charlie Brown"). DzRJ's radio personalities, the "Bossmen", then the "RockJocks", became celebrities in Manila's counterculture. The roster of trailblazing disc jockeys included: Alexander "Andy" Generoso ("Handy Andy"), Bernie Evangelista ("Steel Banana"), Jimmy Labrador, Jigger Labrador, Jake Taylor ("'Brother Jake"), Mike Llamas ("Stoney Burke"), Alfred Gonzalez ("The Madman"), Hoagy Pardo ("Cousin Hoagy"), Wayne Enage ("Brother Wayne"), Ronnie de Asis ("Baby John), Bob Posas ("Bob Magoo"), Peter Molina ("Peter St. John"), Ditos Diaz ("DJ Alfred"), Pancho Lapuz ("Captain Hook"), Benjie Munoz ("Big Freak"), Sonny Peckson ("Little Rock"), Larry Martinez ("Larry Mann"), Becky Zarate ("Brother Becky"), Bobby Mayuga ("The Unicorn"), Bob Sellner (The Bluesbreaker (DZRJ-AM)/Bob Sellner (DZRJ-FM), Mon Zialcita ("The Doctor"), Manny Casaclang ("The Mole"), Rene Trinidad ("Mystery Man"), Dante David ("Howlin Dave") and others.

Pinoy Rock 'n' Rhythm

The daily Pinoy Rock 'n' Rhythm radio show, which was hosted by Bob Posas ("Bob Magoo") and, later, by Dante David ("Howlin' Dave"), featured the early vinyl releases of pioneering Filipino rock groups such as RJ and the Riots', the Juan Dela Cruz Band and Anakbayan, as well as submissions (on cassette tapes) of recordings from Manila's unsigned bands and independent artists. The earliest contributions were from groups such as Maria Cafra ("Kamusta Mga Kaibigan"), Petrified Anthem ("Drinking Wine"), Destiny ("A Taste Of Honey"), and a fledgling Apolinario Mabini Hiking Society.

A mobile recording studio was set up by Alan Austria in 1974, using the station's 4-track tape recorder and mixing board, for "live-in-the-booth" recordings to facilitate the entries of contestants for one of its sponsors, RC Cola and its First National Battle of the Bands (produced by RC Cola's then COO, Cesare Syjuco). More than 200 new songs were said to have been recorded for the Pinoy Rock 'n' Rhythm show, and these entries were aired in succession through many weeks, as the participating bands worked their way into the elimination rounds. These recordings paved the way for recording artists such as Florante, Heber Bartolome of Banyuhay, Johnny Alegre of Hourglass, Bob Aves of Destiny, and many others, who thrived in the Philippine recording industry in later years.

DzRJ's premises, the J&T Building, was the site for rock concerts which were organized by the station; first on the building's roofdeck, and later in its open-air parking lot. The emergence of Pinoy Rock as a popular musical genre was the springboard for artists to emerge commercially, as their key recordings reached a wide listening public. The best examples of such artists and their hits are the Juan Dela Cruz Band ("Himig Natin"), Sampaguita ("Bonggahan"), Mike Hanopol ("Laki Sa Layaw"), and even Eddie Munji III ("Pinoy Jazz") and, of course, DzRJ's very own Ramon Jacinto ("Muli") .

The Rock 'n' Roll Machine

DzRJ was also known for a cross-genre, album-oriented midnight show, called The Rock 'n' Roll Machine, hosted by Hoagy Pardo ("Cousin Hoagy'"), which provided late night listeners with entire sides of advance copies of LPs from the United States and England. Its early morning program opened to a rousing drumbeat from a Ventures song with a pre-recorded tape cartridge of Howlin' Dave announcing "Gising na, RJ na!" ("Wake up, it's RJ time!"). It also aired the packaged US chart show, Casey Kasem's American Top 40.

Radyo Bandido

In February 1986, during the Philippines' historic People Power Revolution that ousted the iron rule of President Ferdinand Marcos, it was in DzRJ's radio station facility—hastily christened "Radyo Bandido"-- that the newscaster, June Keithley, and Fr. James Reuter, S.J. had sought refuge and commandeered its resources. Keithley's radio network, the Roman Catholic Church owned Radio Veritas, was bombed off the air by the incumbent's military forces. The Radyo Bandido broadcasts opened with the political jingle, "Mambo Magsaysay" (composed by Raul Manglapus), which was the theme music of Radio Veritas. June Keithley received the Medal of the Legion of Honor from President Cory Aquino following Marcos' fall.

To acknowledge the patrimony of its key role in the victorious and bloodless revolution, DZRJ AM rebranded as Radyo Bandido with a public service format. Meanwhile, the music format revived in FM as RJ 100.3 and later, RJ Underground Radio 105.9 (now Radio High 105.9); as well as their flagship TV network RJTV 29. DZRJ-AM has also a role on the EDSA DOS. DZRJ is known for some veteran broadcasters such as Johnny Midnight, Art Borjal & Zaldy Lenon. Since 2004, it began bringing news from BBC & VOA. The PBA Games on Radio was moved to DZRJ-AM from DZSR in 2009. UAAP on Radio started on DZRJ-AM in 2010.

The Voice of the Philippines

With Radyo Bandido's popularity waning during the recent years, the management decided to launch a unique brand in June 2010. Last July 19, it upgraded its transmitter facilities to 50,000 watts. Radyo Bandido signed off for the last time on August 22.

On August 25, 2010, DZRJ launched its English broadcasting with the slogan The Voice of the Philippines as a test broadcast, although it officially launched on October 4, 2010.[1] DZRJ is the only English-language AM station in Mega Manila. Its format consisted of English News from Philippine Star, VOA and the BBC, Lifestyle, Sports and Public Service.

Patrick Tulfo, Rey Hidalgo Santos, Gerry Cornejo & Johnny Midnight remained as the original broadcasters. The Radyo Bandido moniker used also on the RJAM provincial stations was taken out from its brand. However, they remain as Tagalog broadcasting.

DZRH operates 24-hours a day except on Mondays where it signs-off at 12:30am and during Holy Week where it signs-off from midnight of Good Friday and lasts until 4:00am of Easter Sunday.

At present, DZRH is considered as one of the top stations in the AM band in Metro Manila and is recognized as the oldest radio station in the Philippines by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas or KBP. It now broadcasts nationwide thru an array of relay stations, each with its own frequency, re-broadcasting the national feed from satellite.

DZRH can also be heard on the internet. Through these websites, the station has become a pioneer in the use of various interactive features - a live chatroom where listeners can feed comments to the station in real-time, two modes of VOIP that can be used to call the station and participate in open-line discussions, and an online discussion forum called "Damdaming Bayan Online". A sizeable number of listeners from all the over the globe now make up the DZRH Global Community, which is maintaining the listener website as a means of interconnecting, and somehow taking part in the preservation of the Filipino culture.

Though it is one of the oldest radio station in the Philippines,[citation needed] DZRH was not the first. The first radio station in the Philippines was the now defunct KZKZ, which began broadcasting from Manila in 1922.

The Heacock era

DZRH first went on air as KZRH on July 15, 1939, after being founded by Samuel Gaches, the owner of H. E. Heacock Company, a department store company based in Escolta, Binondo, Manila. DZRH became the fourth commercial radio station in the Philippines and years later, it bought KZRC (now DYRC) from Isaac Beck in Cebu City. KZRH's radio broadcasts centered on musical, variety shows, comedy skits and short newscasts. Jazz and ballads became standard fare.

During the war, the Japanese took over the stations and KZRH became PIAM for their propaganda.

The birth and expansion of DZRH

After World War II, three prominent businessmen, Maestro Frederico Elzialde and his brothers then-Ambassador JM Elizalde and Manuel (also known as Don Manolo) took over KZRH and KZRC. With the help of station manager Bertrand Silen, KZRH re-established its operations, this time at the Insular Life Building in Plaza Cervantes, Manila. In June 1946, the Elizalde family established the new network as Manila Broadcasting Company.

KZRH returned to the airwaves under MBC on July 1, 1946, and first covering the live inauguration of President Manuel Roxas under its new republic. In 1948, after the international telecommunications conference in the U.S. where the Philippines changed its first letter to "D", KZRH changed its callsign to DZRH, and has been expanded to over 30 stations nationwide.

In 1949, DZRH began airing the first radio drama, Gulong ng Palad. Radio drama is one of the traditional history of Philippine radio before the rise of television industry. Although, radio drama continues until today (only Ito ang Palad Ko, one of the longest-running drama anthology series since 1973).

In 1972, when then-President Ferdinand Marcos declared Martial Law, DZRH was temporarily closed for a few months. It was the only other time in DZRH’s history, since World War II, that broadcast would be interrupted.

In 1979, DZRH launched Operation Tulong, a socio-civic organization that helps the people in the time of calamities and in their condition.

The country tuned in and listened as DZRH covered the Snap Elections of 1986, the EDSA Revolution, and the peaceful installation of President Cory Aquino as a result of People Power. In 1989, DZRH celebrated is 50th golden anniversary by launching "50 Taon ng Radyo", a spectacular event happened on Sunday, July 23, 1989 with parades, games, events, concerts, ceremonies and anniversaries with fireworks display and indoor fireworks happened in Rizal Memorial Stadium and Araneta Coliseum. In 1994, as part of their 55th anniversary, DZRH launched its own nationwide satellite radio broadcast by covering the whole country, reaching 97% of its communities. Thus, the slogan is "One Nation, One Station". It also bought some of the broadcast veterans such as Jay Sonza, Rey Langit and Ka Louie Beltran.

In 2009, DZRH celebrated its 70th anniversary by launching "Fiesta Sitenta", a milestone in Philippine history goes out in a parade and concert performed by today's top-radio anchors and hosts happened in Star City.

DZRH Today

Today, DZRH is one of the top-rated AM stations in the Philippines, led by top-rated newscasters, reporters and hosts such as Joe Taruc, Deo Macalma, Ruth Abao, Andy Vital, Rey Sibayan, Reggie Espiritu, Andy Verde, Henry Uri, Chris Capulso, Bing Formento, Mae Binauhan, Manny Bal and others.

DZMM is also simulcast via The Filipino Channel and also has a television channel on SkyCable named DZMM TeleRadyo where the studio and hosts of its programs can be seen by its listeners and viewers.

Early years

It began on October 19, 1953, DZAQ, the forerunner of DZMM was the first radio station of the former ABS (Alto Broadcasting System) of the Quirinos under President Elpidio Quirino's brother, Antonio (originally came from the pre-1953 experimental station DZBC). DZAQ features news, variety and music programs on an AM format which then the basis of DZAQ-TV, years later when ABS and CBN were merged into a single network in 1967, DZAQ switched into CBN-owned DZXL, another AM broadcaster simply named as DZXL Radyo Patrol, the pre-martial law station of ABS-CBN until 1972.

However on the night of September 23, 1972, both DZXL, DZYK and DZAQ-TV were halted as Metrocom forces seized ABS-CBN broadcast complex two days after President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law, even DZAQ/DZXL personalities are arrested because of strict censorship as it went off the air, two years after the forced shut down of all radio and television stations, DWWW, a crony-owned AM station of Kanlaon Broadcasting System (KBS) began to air in 1974 which contains not only in news, but also public service programs and music as well. Veteran anchors and new recruits like Johnny de Leon, Rod Navarro, Noli de Castro and Vic Morales are some the announcers of the station, came into DWWW at that time. When the 1986 EDSA Revolution was started for three days, reformist rebels stormed into RPN broadcast complex as DWWW knocked off from the air following the capture of channel 4 on the morning of February 24, 1986. At the end, both DWWW and DWOK of BBC were sequestered by the government.

The fall of the Marcos Regime brought about the return of ABS-CBN. In July 1986, then newly-formed Presidential Commission on Good Government turned two radio stations, DWWW of RPN and DWOK of BBC, back to ABS-CBN. DWWW was renamed DZMM and resumes broadcasting. Lito Balquierda Jr., Vice-President for Radio, spearheaded the return of the giant network to the local broadcasting scene.

The network started recruiting both experienced and new employees including Radyo Patrol Reporters. Their studios were initially located at Chronicle Building in Pasig (Where Benpres Corporation is currently located). After days of careful planning, DZMM was born, carrying the tagline "Ang Himpilan ng Malayang Mamamayan" (Station of the Free Citizen) on July 22, 1986.

Dely Magpayo was the first ever anchor to grace the airwaves of the station with her program Dear Tiya Dely, followed by other broadcast icons like Jun Ricafrente, Rene Jose, and Noli de Castro, newly-recruited women Gel Santos-Rejos, Mel Tiangco and Angelique Lazo as well as late greats Ka Ernie Baron and Kuya Cesar.

Also, Knowledge Power, the first ever full-length program of the station was launched. It was also the country’s first-ever scholastic program on AM radio.

As it was in the past, DZMM held on the tradition of the stalwart DZAQ/DZXL ABS-CBN Radyo Patrol (field reporters) of the '60s and early '70s to further develop the station's capabilities in serving the public. Mr. Jun Ricafrente, one of the original members of the team, started training new recruits. The first to be hired were Claude Vitug, Emil Recometa, Lito Villarosa and Neil Ocampo.

In October 1986, the station was transferred to its current studios in the ABS-CBN Broadcast Center in Quezon City.

In 1987, the first ever tandem on local AM radio was introduced. Mel Tiangco and Jay Sonza were the host of Mel & Jay and immediately became a hit to the listeners and lasted for couple of years. It was also in the same year when DZMM build a remarkable roster of radio talents, including Ted Failon, Korina Sanchez, Frankie Evangelista and Neil Ocampo.

It was also in this year when military insurgents took over the station. However, this did not stop DZMM from delivering news to the public, the booth was moved to then undisclosed location and immediately resumed broadcasting.

Ted Failon joined DZMM’s roster of broadcasters in 1990 and had a program with the station entitled Gising Pilipinas who formerly aired everyday at 2-4 am.

News coverages and events:
Since 1986, DZMM reporters covered the biggest events in the late 80's and the early 90's like the Mendiola riot, August 1987 coup, Supertyphoon Sisang, MV Doña Paz tragedy, death of Ferdinand Marcos, December 1989 Christmas coup, Luzon killer earthquake, Mt. Pinatubo eruption and Gulf War. All of these were witnessed and listened on AM radio to listeners, together with ABS-CBN News team.

Public service on radio:
In 1991, Aksyon Ngayon, the first ever program on AM radio devoted solely to public service was created. First anchored by Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon, Aksyon Ngayon immediately soared to the top of the ratings list. Because of the thousands of less-fortunate Kapamilyas flocking the station asking help from Aksyon Ngayon, the executives decided to create the DZMM Public Service Center, the first ever separate office exclusively created for public service by a local AM station. Currently, Aksyon Ngayon is being anchored by Julius Babao and Kaye Dacer with Zaldy Naguit.

On November 5, 1993, DZMM launched Pulis, Pulis Kung Umaksiyon, Mabilis. The program was first anchored by broadcast icons, Kabayan Noli de Castro, Jay Sonza, and Mel Tiangco. It was created to keep the public informed on the activities of the Philippine National Police. It also became a venue for comments and grievances of the listening public on issues concerning the law enforcers.

In 1995, DZMM won the KBP Golden Dove awards for the Best AM Radio Station. It was also on the same year when DZMM produced the award-winning Radio Documentary, Ang Kasaysayan ng Radyo sa Pilipinas – the first ever radio special that won three major awards from three celebrated award-giving bodies. The documentary was conferred with the Lorenzo Ruiz award by the CMMA, Best Radio Program Promoting the Culture and the Arts by KBP, and Best Radio Program by the Golden Pearl Award.

DZMM once again was declared Best AM Radio Station by the KBP Golden Dove Awards in 1996. On November 5, Jeep ni Erap was formally launched on DZMM. The then vice-president Joseph Estrada himself anchored the program that tackled issues concerning the masses.

Also, in 1996, DZMM became the first local AM station to be made available in the World Wide Web with its inclusion in the ABS-CBN website. All programs of the stations are broadcast live and can be enjoyed by all Filipinos around the world via The Filipino Channel (TFC)

New Slogan, Sky Patrol:
In 1998, from Himpilan ng Malayang Mamamayan, DZMM, under the leadership of then Vice-President for Radio Network Division Kabayan Noli de Castro, was re-launched as DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 with a much stronger and bolder battle cry, "Una sa Balita, Una sa Public Service".

DZMM ranked first among all AM radio stations in 1998. For the fourth year in a row, it won the KBP Golden Dove Award for Best AM Radio Station. In its continuing effort to help our less-fortunate Kapamilyas, DZMM staged the first ever OPLAN MM or Malusog at Malakas na Mamamayan. This event was first held at Sta. Cruz, Manila where 1500 residents were given medical and dental care. On June 11, DZMM aired its centennial special titled, Ang Media at ang Kasarinlan.

On September 14, 1998, ABS-CBN Sky Patrol, the first ever news chopper in the country, was launched. Anchored by Ricky Velasco, Sky Patrol changed the way of delivering and gathering news. ABS-CBN Sky Patrol is the news chopper of DZMM, ABS-CBN and ABS-CBN News Channel.

The station's Iwas Dagdag-Bawas and Oplan MM ‘98 campaigns were cited as Outstanding Public Service Messages by the prestigious AdBoard Araw Values Awards 1998, besting more than 100 entries from different advertising companies and broadcast networks.

Since 1986, Kabayan (Kapangyarihan ng Mamamayan, Balita at Talakayan) is the longest-running radio program hosted by Noli de Castro allowing to place a timeslot after DZMM Balita which focused on issues related to political and social situation. In February 2001, the last episodes of Kabayan (Kapangyarihan ng Mamamayan, Balita at Talakayan) aired. At the time, it was DZMM’s top-rating radio program anchored by Noli de Castro. The show had to end its run in order to allow de Castro to run for the Senate. This year, Kabayan (Kapangyarihan ng Mamamayan, Balita at Talakayan) returned to DZMM as de Castro serves as the current host on weekdays.

Also in 2001, DZMM celebrated its 15th anniversary of broadcasting on-air with its richly deserved tagline, "Una sa Balita, Una sa Public Service".
