DZME (1530 kHz Metro Manila) is the flagship AM station owned by Capitol Broadcasting Center in the Philippines. The station's studio is located at Unit 1802, 18/F, OMM-Citra Building, # 39 San Miguel Avenue, Ortigas Center, Pasig City, and its transmitter is located at # 78 Kalye Plamingco, Brgy. Panghulo, Obando, Bulacan.

History[edit]

DZME started its broadcast on June 15, 1968 when the Congress authorized Capitol Broadcasting Center of Jose M. Luison and Sons, Inc. to operate an AM radio station nationwide. However, in 1987, the then former president Corazon Aquino shut down DZME for airing commentaries and news against the then Aquino Administration due to the series of coup attempts by the rebel soldiers.[1] In 1996, a new group of investors took over and revived the station.

In 2009, DZME transferred to its new home at the Victory Mall in Caloocan City from its long-time former studios in Roosevelt Avenue, Quezon City as part of its plan to expand operations. Regional affiliates are likewise being developed to bolster its nationwide presence.

Last November 14, 2013 to January 2014, some of the programs of DZME (except for news casts) were postponed and replaced by music fillers due to technical maintenance/upgrades of the station & the transfer of the studios from Caloocan to Pasig City, in preparation of the station's major relaunch as well as launching of new programs. After Holy Week of 2015, the Radyo Uno brand (which was in use since 2004) was phased out.
