DZMM Named Radio Station of the Year by the Rotary Club of Manila

DZMM Radyo Patrol 630, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, has another reason to celebrate after being hailed as the Radio Station of the Year at the Rotary Club of Manila’s (RCM) annual Journalism Awards held at the New World Hotel ballroom last June 30. The flagship AM radio station of ABS-CBN and the number one AM radio station in Mega Manila, DZMM also received the same honor last year.

“We are humbled by this acknowledgement of our efforts by the Rotary Club of Manila. We always strive to be faithful to the needs of our audience, whether it’s news, analysis and commentary or public service events. This recognition serves to remind us why we do what we do. DZMM, and the entire ABS-CBN News, will continue to respond to needs of the Filipino. We’ve been doing it for 30 years, and we remain focused on continuing this mission in the years to come,” said Ging Reyes, head of the ABS-CBN Integrated News and Current Affairs.
ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ leading media and entertainment company, won three other distinctions to be the most awarded news organization that night.

“S.O.C.O.: Scene of the Crime Operatives” host Gus Abelgas was awarded the Television Male Broadcaster of the Year, while “Dos Por Dos” anchor Gerry Baja took home the Radio Broadcaster of the Year award.

Abelgas’ long-running crime investigative program has consistently rated high in its weekend timeslot, with viewers tuning in to learn how to protect their families based on the experiences featured in the show. Baja, meanwhile, continues to provide news analysis and sharp commentary on issues in his radio program.

Fellow DZMM anchor and reporter, Jasmin Romero, was honored by RCM as Radio Female Broadcaster of the Year. While also reporting for ABS-CBN on TV, Romero showed she is still tops in the platform where she first made a name for herself.

Now on its 30th year, DZMM has constantly evolved to reach more Filipinos. It has the first-ever radio-television simulcast in DZMM TeleRadyo on SkyCable and ABS-CBN TVplus, while it also offers audio streaming on its website and news updates on Twitter and Facebook (@DZMMTeleRadyo).

These triumphs of ABS-CBN came on the heels of a successful Inauguration Day coverage dubbed “Ang Panunumpa: Pangako ng Pagbabago,” which rated higher than its competitors according to ratings data provider Kantar Media. ABS-CBN’s coverage garnered an 18.8% national TV rating while GMA’s coverage only managed 13.4%.

One of the oldest and most prestigious award-giving bodies in journalism, the RCM Journalism Awards has been recognizing outstanding individuals and organizations in Philippine media annually since 1966.

  1. Awesome article.Thanks Again. Fantastic.

  2. “He made people think this game is worse than it actually is” That’s what people have to judge based on what Joe said. His words alone can’t possibly skew the sales because poeple would decide wheather they want to support the game or not. If the game is better then it should sell accordingly. Tell me though, if you aren’t a fan of PB then why do you care about their success?f

  3. I have got one recommendation for your web site. It seems like there are a handful of cascading stylesheet issues while launching a number of webpages within google chrome and internet explorer. It is operating fine in internet explorer. Probably you can double check that.

  4. In Hunger Games, the survivors are still victims of their pasts, while in Harry Potter, the survivors get on with their lives and everything’s cool now. I know a lot of people who hated the Hunger Games ending because they felt it wasn’t happy enough, but I thought it was as happy as it realistically could be…maybe even more so.


  6. Yo le asociaría -sin lugar a equivocarme- que esta novedad de google era de esperarse, ya que los de Mountain View han buscado desde todo punto de vista facilitarnos las tareas, y no es raro que también ahora liberen una mejora para el usuario en términos de Usabilidad.LuisH

  7. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

  8. Je suis pessimiste sur les suites de ce « débat ». Après tout, pourquoi refuser d’étendre le droit des bien portants à euthanasier les « malades indignes », quand 6000 img sont pratiquées chaque année en France pour les mêmes raisons ? Et comme nul ne remettra en cause la légitimité des img, la cohérence du droit voudra que…

  9. (humor and parenting). I have scoured the internet looking for a way to do the overview for a book of essays. Could you help point me in the right direction? It doesn't fall under regular non-fiction guidelines. I'd love your help. Thank you! (The book is basically done.)

  10. I hope this isn’t your last post here. It is a place to vent and to let us know how your doing. You know we are here for you, so grieve at your own pace and let us help when we can. Lots of hugs

  11. If by fill out you mean invalidate? Sure. If peeing your pants can at all be considered evil (or an analogy for evil) this means God too is evil, as you, DaleGod of SonHumanity… you no doubt peed your pants as a toddler..?We fault creators for faulty creations everyday (and rightly so). Product recalls on dangerous appliances, cosmetics, vehicles. The designers/creators of these are responsible.  Ryan  

  12. You’ve managed a first class post

  13. Hi Indoorkitty,I have! I really like it, too. The coverage is much more sheer compared to NARS, but it feels so good on the skin and doesn’t break me out. Tarte also has a really nice face powder called Agent Provocateur. Have you tried it?

  14. Thanks , I have recently been searching for info aptreximapoly this topic for a while and yours is the greatest I’ve found out till now. However, what concerning the bottom line? Are you certain about the supply?
