One sound from Luzon to Visayas and Mindanao
Unifying its listeners in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao under one Barangay and one sound, the key programs of GMA’s flagship FM radio station, Barangay LS 97.1, are now airing simultaneously across the nation beginning this month.
Barangay LS programs that were previously heard only in Manila are extended to the regions thru RGMA FM stations in Cebu, Davao, Bacolod, Baguio, Cagayan De Oro, Dagupan, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Legazpi, Lucena, Naga, Palawan and Tuguegarao. “On Barangay LS, we are all about providing ‘crazy fun’ to a diverse listenership,” explains RGMA Vice President for Operations, Glenn F. Allona. “With the integration of our key programs across our regional stations, we endeavor to amp up the fun and connect our listeners from Luzon all the way to Visayas and Mindanao under one sound and one Barangay.”
Listening is made more interactive and entertaining through a simulcast of the key programs with DJs from the various stations interacting with each other, as well as the listeners. “More than providing a good listening experience, we want to initiate a conversation with our listeners,” Allona continued.
Hopeless romantics can tune in to Wanted Sweetheart with Papa Dan in Manila and his counterpart DJs from the different regional stations as they match male and female callers searching for love on air. For the last hour of the program, Papa Dan will take over and match one caller from Luzon and one caller from Visayas or Mindanao. It airs from 9p.m.-12 midnight, Monday to Friday.
