According to DSWD Secretary Dinky Soliman, Radyo Singko 92.3 News FM was unanimously voted by the awards committee as the most supportive radio station “for having provided the most and cost-free radio airtime on DSWD programs, projects and services through [its] news and public affairs programs such as Punto Asintado and Aksyon Solusyon.”
Punto Asintado anchor Erwin Tulfo shared that his daily morning commentary program with Aida Sy can always work hand in hand with the government when it comes to disseminating information to the public. “Bukas ang programa natin hindi lang sa DSWD pati sa iba pa nating ahensya ng gobyerno kung patungkol po ’yan sa pagtuturo po sa mga kababayan at pagbibigay ng impormasyon o anumang tulong,” he said.
“’Yung ginawad po namin sa inyo ay hindi dahil pinupuri niyo kami, [ito ay] kundi dahil tinutulungan niyo kami dyan sa matuwid na daan,” Soliman reiterated in her interview with Punto Asintado on Friday.
Airing from Monday to Friday at 8am to 10am, news and commentary program Punto Asintado promotes change by informing the public of a given problem or issue. Aksyon Solusyon, meanwhile, helps listeners who need immediate aid and is hosted by former Senator and four-term Philippine Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon and Amelyn Veloso daily from 10am-11:30am.
Gawad Ulat is part of the PaNata Ko sa Bayan (Pagkilala sa Natatanging Kontribusyon sa Bayan) Awards that “acknowledges the efforts of individuals, groups or organizations whose panata or vow is to share their resources and time in providing a better opportunity for disadvantaged sectors.”
Moreover, at the 20th KBP Golden Dove Awards late last year, Radyo Singko 92.3 News FM also clinched four recognitions including a nomination in the Best FM Radio Station category.
Anchor Aida Sy and Radyo Singko reporter Allan Lopez accepted the award in behalf of the leading AM on FM station.
