In August 5, 1991, Aksyon Ngayon, the first ever program on AM radio devoted solely to public service was created. First anchored by Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon, Aksyon Ngayon immediately soared to the top of the ratings list. Because of the thousands of less-fortunate Kapamilyas flocking the station asking help from Aksyon Ngayon, the executives decided to create the DZMM Public Service Center, the first ever separate office exclusively created for public service by a local AM station.
In order for the program to reach public service to Filipinos worldwide, it changed its title into Aksyon Ngayon: Global Patrol in 2008.
In 2010, for the first time in Philippine radio history, the two stations DZBB and ABS-CBN's DZMM made a historical simulcast when they had two children asked for help to find the missing parents from Bohol on a rival program on DZMM Aksyon Ngayon but reunited through DZBB's program Aksyon Oro Mismo.
On January 11, 2011, Julius Babao joined the anchor chair, replacing David Oro. His arrival made the program revert to its début title, which is Aksyon Ngayon and move its timeslot from 1:30pm–2:30pm to 11:00am-12:00nn.
In 2016, Kaye Dacer announced her resignation as anchor of Aksyon Ngayon due to her current political stand and conflict of interests. Her family owned a major controlling stake in 8TriMedia Broadcasting Network, which is a blocktimer of DZRJ 810 AM, leaving Julius to went solo on the final months of the program.
Action is what this Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA) and KBP Golden Dove Award Best Public Service/Affairs Program recipient gives to the problems and concerns of our less fortunate Kapamilyas through its Aksyon Ngayon Center that operates for eight hours, five days a week. During its broadcast, those in need of immediate government assistance can directly communicate with concerned agencies (like SSS, GSIS, LTO, and others) in person or via telephone. The program also links those who need help and donors while its on-air bulletin, “Panawagang Bayan,” airs people’s concerns— from lost possessions to finding missing loved ones.
Like other DZMM programs, Radyo Patrol reports can interrupt the program when a story breaks.
