History[edit]

From 1996 to 2000, it was branded as Mellow Touch 88.7. In 2000, it was rebranded as Radio One 88.7. Around May 2009, Radio One reduced its power and transmitter antenna into 1-bay resulting in a weak signal in most parts of the city. Survey showed that Radio One signal is only up to Pavia town. Since January 2010, it went off the air due to transmitter problems. In July 2010, it revived as Mellow 887. The station is broadcasting with the power of 300 watts from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm only, but plans to extend to 12:00 am in the next few months. This station instead of relay.

In 2016, Brigada Mass Media Corporation acquired DYKU-FM from FBS Radio Network. The new transmitter (10KW) site is located at Cabugao Norte, Pavia, Iloilo. 88.7 Brigada News FM Iloilo will start broadcast in August 8, 2016.
