History[edit]

Radyo Pilipinas-Palawan known as DWRM started airing in the province in 1991. The main transmitter and studio was built in a five-hectare government land located along national highway at Bgy. Sta Monica, Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. It was also constructed with 314 meter high tower with 10 kilowatt broadcast power on 648 kHz.

The radio station was established through the effort and initiative of then House Speaker Ramon V. Mitra, Jr, congressman of the 2nd district of Palawan with the aim of bringing the government to the far flung areas of the province using the airwaves. It was also dubbed DWRM in honor of the late speaker’s effort (Ramon Mitra) and Radyo ng Mamamayan as well to emphasize the ultimate purpose of the station that is to serve the people.
