History[edit]

DZUW-AM to DZRJ-FM[edit]

It was once DZUW-AM broadcasting on 1310 kHz originally owned by Republic Broadcasting System (now GMA Network, Inc.) but was moved to FM in 1973 on 100.3 MHz before reformatting as DWNK-FM branded as Wink FM during the Martial Law years. Wink FM was manned by all-female DJ's, decades before ABS-CBN's Radio Romance 101.9 (now MOR 101.9 My Only Radio For Life!). Around 1986, during the Philippines' historic People Power Revolution, after DZRJ-AM reformatted as Radyo Bandido with a news, talk & public service format, 100.3 Wink FM was sold to Rajah Broadcasting Network and changed its callsign to DZRJ and it was reformatted as RJ 100 in an oldies format.

Around 1999 to 2001, it was reformatted itself to The Hive 100.3 playing alternatives & classic rock music. Its format was similar to the defunct RJ Underground Radio 105.9. However it lasted for 3 years because of its ratings. In 2002, it was reverted to RJ 100. It began bringing news from VOA & BBC similar to DZRJ-AM.

RJ 100.3 FM ties up with HP Philippines[edit]

On October 15, 2010, HP Philippines, a unit of United States-based information technology firm Hewlett-Packard Company, have entered an agreement with RJ 100.3 FM as part of radio commercials.
