Profile[edit]

DXWT-FM is the flagship FM station of UMBN, popularly known as "Wild FM". Established in 1988, about two years after the "EDSA People Power Revolution", DXWT-FM is formatted as Contemporary Hit Radio-Dance (CHR-DANCE), capitalizing on Dance Re-Mixes and the so-called EPs (Extended Play), normally played only in Disco Clubs. Wild FM transformed radio programming by putting these re-mixes and EPs in 20-minute un-interrupted non-stop sweeps over the airwaves. Wild FM also revolutionized radio promotions and events by organizing Street Discos and Disco sa Barangays. In less than a year, Wild FM became no. 1 in Davao City, and a by-word in the industry.

In 2009, the station changed its branding to Wild 92.3WT. It now targets the A, B and C market. In 2010, 92.3WT became the first radio station in Mindanao to begin broadcasting via its HD Radio technology. Today, Wild FM remains a vital force in the industry, enjoying the steady support of both the listeners and advertisers, as Mindanao's dance outlet.
