Present during the occasion was Mon Gualvez, Ted Failon, DJ Chacha, Lourd de Veyra, Danton Remoto, Dr. Love Bro. Jun Banaag, Dr. Edinell of Healing Galing. Broadcaster Cheryl Cosym, Balita Pilipinas hosts, and several more personalities involved in the station. TRUE FM wants to provide entertainment, music, true news and public service to all corners of the Philippines. This is the first two in one station in the country, and they are putting that into good news.
Ms. Cherry Bayle says "As you all know we had a Radyo5 liner saying you have to leave the usual, that's why we did public service on FM and news too. We changed the lineup of programs and did a lot of things people can experience on the station. We came up with TRUE FM, truth in journalism, relatable stories, unwavering public service and entertainment."
We also talked to Dra. Edinell of Healing Galing which will be back after a 2 year hiatus
In the morning Mon Gualves will do Bangon Bayan, Ted Failon and DJ Chacha will do a self named show for commentaries. Ted adds "I hope there will be more mobile journalists, we need to have citizen journalists that can do it right. Pam and Julie will be doing it on our show, like feature stories, political ones, and true news."
As for showbiz talk, there was a part where the title Queen of FM was being pitted with DJ Chacha and Laila Chikadora, and they cleared things during the press conference
Also, Senator Raffy Tulfo was phone patched as he was still traveling from a different province when the press conference happened. He told us why he wouldn't be stopping radio anytime soon.
There are still a LOT of things to look forward to now that they've changed their radio station's name and direction. They continue to become different, and will be making change in bringing what the TRUE people need to hear on radio, TV and online. Congratulations on the launch of 92.3 RADYO5 TRUE FM!
