History and Profile[edit]

GV AM 792 was launched on 1983. It was re-launched last June 5, 1996 and formally introduced November 7, 1996, with a power output of 5 kW or 20,000 watts effective radiated power reaching the whole province of Pampanga and the key cities of Central Luzon.

The brand name Radyo Centro 792 was rarely used, especially during sign-on and sign-off. This is the only AM radio station that plays Kapampangan music[citation needed].

During Typhoon Frank, it did not broadcast in the morning because there was no electricity, so GV AM 792 signed on at 3:00 pm & signed off at 12:00 mn.

Around October 2008, there was a change of programs such as Kilos Kabayan & Punto De Vista, but there are a few programs that remained, especially the noon & afternoon programs. In 2009, All Programs in the morning were Changed Temporarily to Music Programming, Then, it had New programs During The 2nd Quarter of 2009.
