Kabayan makes his return to full-time radio broadcasting on Monday (July 12), via the two-hour program “Kabayan: Kapangyarihan ng Mamamayan, Balita at Talakayan” on DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 and DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable ch. 26).
After nine years in public service, De Castro is looking forward to fire up mornings once again with the day’s biggest news and to deliver assistance to Filipinos in need from Monday to Friday, 5am to 7am. “Broadcasting is my first and one true love. This is what I love to do and I’m very excited about how people will accept me,” he said.
De Castro, a recipient of countless awards and possibly the most recognizable Filipino broadcaster in history, further strengthens DZMM’s morning block which includes “Tambalang Failon at Sanchez” with Ted Failon and Pinky Webb and “Dos Por Dos” with Anthony Taberna and Gerry Baja.
His return to primetime radio came in time for the anniversary month of DZMM, which is celebrating its 24th year. DZMM recently bagged the Rotary Club of Manila Journalism Award for Radio Station of the Year.
“DZMM will only give the best and the first when it comes to both news and in public service. We proved this true once again with Kabayan’s return and DZMM TeleRadyo’s expansion abroad. These only show our undying commitment to Filipinos all over the world,” ABS-CBN Head for Manila Radio Division and Sports Peter Musngi said.
