The station operates 24 hours a day.[1][2]

History[edit]

1980-1995: Double 9.5 RT[edit]

The station was established on February 4, 1980 as Double 9.5 RT, the first provincial FM station of RGMA. At that time, it aired an Adult Top 40 format and English was used as its medium.

1995-2014: Campus Radio/99.5 RT[edit]

On March 1, 1995 (the launch of RGMA done by Mike Enriquez) the station rebranded as Campus Radio 99.5 RT with the slogan "Forever!". When Bobby Nalzaro took over the operations of GMA Cebu in 1997, the station changed its slogan to "Nindota-Ah!", which was later adapted by several RGMA FM stations in Mindanao a year later, and changed its medium to Cebuano. The station switched to Contemporary MOR format. On July 29, 2002, the Campus Radio branding was dropped. From 2013 to 2018, as conducted by Nielsen Radio Audience Measurement, 99.5 RT Cebu was the dominant overall Number 1 Radio Station in Cebu.[3]

2014-present: Barangay RT[edit]

On February 17, 2014, as part of RGMA's brand unifying, the station rebranded to Barangay RT 99.5 and carried-over the slogan "Isang Bansa, Isang Barangay". Since then, it began simulcasting a handful of programs from its Manila station.[4]
