Ex Times Broadcasting Stations Switch to Music-News Hybrid Format
Following the death of media patriarch Alex Velayo Sy of Times Broadcasting Network Corporation in Mindanao, Philippines, the fate of its radio stations has been in limbo.
Its AM and FM stations have been in financial woes and with the economic activity slowing down in the region, a few of its radio stations have now been sold to a new owner.
Filling in the need for public service, BMGI has acquired two stations 95.9 in Dipolog and 99.9 in Pagadian.
The two stations are now formatted to air a hybrid of NewsTalk and Music, a format that has been proven successful in markets like Cebu (Brigada News FM).
Dubbed Radyo Bisdak, the 2 newly rebranded stations take on their competitions: DXFL and DXCA.
DXWO has recently completed their studio and will start airing more public service affairs this month.
