Profile[edit]

DZXQ[edit]

Previously owned by Mabuhay Broadcasting Systems, Inc., DZXQ is a fully maintained station filled with blocktimers except for Sunday. It is the first AM station which aired Chinese Programming from 9pm - 12mn.

DZXQ was the home of Powerhouse Broadcasters such as Nar Pineda, Roger Arienda, Rolly Canon, Narissa Gonzalez, Ducky Paredes, Jhino Parrucho, Ruben Ilagan, Popo Villanueva, Roland Lumagbas, Dr. Erick San Juan and Reggie Vizmanos. It was also the home to An Affair with Baby Tsina, a lifestyle radio show.

On February 28, 2011, DZXQ ceased operations, a few days after a new set of investors acquired the station. Nar Pineda and the Powerhouse Broadcasters were forced to move to DWSS, while some moved to DWBL.

Radio La Verdad[edit]

In late 2011, it was reported that the set of investors are associated with Daniel Razon, the chair/CEO of Progressive Broadcasting Corporation/Breakthrough and Milestones Productions International. Since November 2011, it was on its test broadcast, airing UNTV's feed.

Radio La Verdad 1350, UNTV’s radio arm, was launched on Jan. 16, 2012. His mission is to bring back the glory of radio, which is radio sans images, since “Radio on TV (TeleRadyo)” has become the new trend. He also launched UNTV mobile radio booth, a first in Philippine Radio history, in which it broadcast to a specific location via see thru mobile studio vehicle.[1]

Radio La Verdad can also be heard via live streaming using the UNTV Mobile App. Launched last April 20, 2013, the app developed by ADDSLIFE B&M Network Inc. can be downloaded on Apple iOS and Google Android devices for free.[2]
