DZMM hopes to continue its winning streak as a top contender for the People’s Choice Award for Best AM Station in the coming KBP Golden Dove Awards. To vote for DZMM, just text GDOV
ABS-CBN Manila Radio Division Head Peter Musngi expressed glee with DZMM’s dominance especially as it marks its 24th year on air this year.
“Being the first in news, the first in public service and also the first in the hearts of radio listeners and cable TV viewers motivates us more to improve our service to Filipinos worldwide,” he said.
Musngi credits DZMM’s success in the ratings to its exclusive and extensive coverage of the recent news events, its public service efforts, and its hit combination of anchors led by the tandem of Pinky Webb and Ted Failon of the primetime news and commentary program “Tambalang Failon at Webb.”
Webb joins Failon in the crucial task of dissecting and explaining the biggest news and issues in the nation every morning.
“I have deep respect for Ted as a broadcast journalist. It’s an honor to be working with him and working in a show that people really trust and believe in,” Webb said.
Failon, meanwhile, is very confident that he and Webb can further strengthen the program to address the evolving needs of their listeners and viewers.
“You cannot provide too much entertainment, too much news, too much of everything. Balansyado dapat,” he said.
Making another hit tandem in DZMM are Lynda Jumilla and Alvin Elchico of the recently-launched nightly program “S.R.O.” (Suhestiyon, Reaksyon, Opinyon).
Aside from the chance to voice out their thoughts on current issues, fans of the show also tune in to catch interesting bits of information and trivia on the local politics scene from the two veteran reporters.
Catch “Tambalang Failon at Webb” Monday to Friday at 8:30am and “S.R.O.” at 7:45pm over Radyo Patrol 630, www.dzmm.com.ph or DZMM TeleRadyo on SkyCable channel 26.
