History[edit]

Radio Tabloid[edit]

Boys' Night Out started as a small segment of Magic 89.9 called Radio Tabloid hosted by King DJ Logan and CJ the DJ. After moderate success the executives of the station decided to turn it into a radio talk show called Boys Night Out on March 2006 with Radio Tabloid becoming one of its segments renamed to Confession Sessions. The show was hosted by King DJ Logan with the addition of Slick Rick and Tony Toni. CJ was moved to host the weekday lunch show called the Big Meal.

King DJ Logan left the station to pursue a hosting career, a bar and resto business and worked for an Alabang call center for a time
