Davao archdiocese to revive community radio

Posted By: admin On:

MANILA, May 21, 2015–After more than a decade, the switchboard lights will glow once again inside the DxGN studio, a Catholic FM radio station in Davao City.

And that is good news for the local Church and the faithful, said Davao Archbishop Romulo Valles, who led the efforts to bring back to life the radio station.

There is no definite date yet, but he said the station’s return to the airwaves may happen anytime soon “to further spread the Good News” through media.

The archdiocese’ office on social communications announced that its application at the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) has already been approved.

It said the station plans to operate with a new 10 kilowatt transmitter facility.

“We pray that we will be on air soon,” it added.

DxGN first started its operation in 1988 until the station closed down in early 1990s due to financial difficulties.

For a while, the Notre Dame Broadcasting Corp. rented the station. But in 1997, DxGN was revived and operated by the archdiocese again until its transmitter experienced a major breakdown in 2002. (CBCPNews)
