During 1995, MBC launched the country's showbiz tsismis and music station, 101.1 Showbiz Tsismis after MBC bought the station from Makati Broadcasting Network. At that time, its callsign was DWST, which means Showbiz Tsismis. 101.1 Showbiz Tsismis had an innovative mix of showbiz news and the latest music hits. It is also simulcast thru provincial via-satellite FM stations in the country, a first then in Philippine radio history.[1]
