DWAO-TV, channel 37 is a Philippine television station owned by Progressive Broadcasting Corporation (UNTV), the same company that operates 107.5 Win Radio network of FM stations, as well as UNTV Radio La Verdad 1350 as its sole AM radio station. DWAO is one of very few NTSC-System M stations in the world that broadcast on channel 37. This station studios are located #907 EDSA Philam, Quezon City and transmitter located at Crestview Heights Subdivision, Brgy. San Roque, Antipolo City. It is known for its broadcast of Ang Dating Daan and its free public service programs manned by the network's chairman and CEO Daniel Razon.

History[edit]

In May 2002, Progressive Broadcasting Corporation ventured to UHF television through UNTV 37. UNTV started as a television counterpart to NU 107, airing rock-related music videos. In its early years, UNTV gained a cult following through the program Strangebrew, a.k.a. Ang show na may tama. In 2004, however, UNTV became the home of Ang Dating Daan and gradually reduced and eventually abandoned airing rock music videos.

Since then it has become a 24-hour TV station, airing not only ADD Programs, but also news, public service and information programming. In 2006, Kuya Daniel Razon's Breakthrough and Milestones Production Inc. acquired the operations of UNTV and it became a public service channel, first in Philippine TV history.

In 2013, UNTV marked another first in Philippine TV news as the network acquired DJI Phantom drones for their live news reporting. The drones first used during the onslaught of Typhoon Haiyan. [1]
