DZEC operates daily (including Summer Break from Thursday to Saturday) from 4am to 12mn.


DZEC was established on April 26, 1968 in Manila. Eagle Broadcasting Corporation. The station was then broadcasting on the frequency of 1050 kilocycles. features news, public affairs, public service, entertainment, educational and music programs on an AM format.

In September 1972, EBC shot at and killed three Marine soldiers who were part of a contingent sent by Marcos to shut down the church's DZEC radio tower. In 1977, DZEC moved to the present to frequency of 1062 kHz in response to the adoption of the 9 kHz spacing on AM radio stations in the Philippines.

Since then, DZEC began expanding into other parts of Luzon, with DZEL in Lucena City (1973) and DWIN in Dagupan, Northern Luzon (1976). In 1988, it further expanded and acquired local radio stations in Visayas and Mindanao, with DYFX in Cebu and DXED in Davao, covering the 4 said key cities in the Philippines.
