Subic Broadcasting Corporation (SBC) is a Zambales-based media network.

It is a duly registered corporation under the Securities and Exchange Commission (Philippines) and licensed to install and operate radio and broadcasting stations anywhere in the country by virtue of Republic Act 7511,[1] signed in May 1992.

Profile[edit]

SBC was first founded in 1969 as a daily radio companion of the people of Olongapo, Philippines in providing news and entertainment. When it was incorporated on July 29, 1969 it began broadcasting on the AM frequency 1557 kHz as DWGO "Radio on the Go". After being temporarily closed during martial law in 1972, it resumed operation in 1976 on a new frequency - DWGO 1008 kHz. SBC soon acquired a franchise for radio and television operation, which began to broadcast regularly in January 2011 as DWSB TV 22 - the first & only television station in Olongapo City.

In the early half of the year 2013, SBC partnered with TV5 to better serve the viewing public of Olongapo, Zambales, Bataan, and neighboring areas.
