87.5 FM1 (Manila)

Now that 87.5 is currently owned by the government, this will possibly become a Top 40/CHR station (and is currently under conceptual stage). Do you have any thoughts?

    It will be. Last I heard, they already have assembled 10 DJ's and 3 newscasters in their fold. Timeline is indefinite though, since I don't think they have already secured approval for the use of the frequency from the NTC.

    No idea who the DJ's and casters are...what I know though is that this will be CHR format and will go up against the likes of Magic, Play and RX.

    Do you think Delamar will be a fit for the new 87.5 station?

    Nope. Isn't she still working for RX?

    Word on the street is many of the FM1 jocks used to work for the Vera group.

    Delamar has retired already from radio.

    Earlier today at around between 12nn and 1:30pm (while I was commuting along Proj. 6, QC), I heard some classic OPM songs on 87.5. Hale, then some songs from the Eraserheads, then Brownman Revival. I don't think either if 87.5 is doing a test broadcast again, or there's a pirate FM station operating.

    UPDATE: Earlier between 11AM and 1PM, foreign Top 40/CHR tracks (2000s) naman ang pinatugtog kanina. Some Beyonce tracks, Jay-Z, Chris Brown, Usher et al. I was listening (still on a low-power status) while heading to Maghinawa St. in Diliman.
  • Pangit ng signal ng FM2 sa mga probinsyang tulad ng Laguna.

    North Andrew recently said Jada (of Wave) will be part of FM1.

    Hypothetical question:

    Should Karen Bordador get released from jail, do you think she'll be a good addition to FM1, considering that she also has a following?

    It would be great to hear Anne (from Wave 89.1 & 97.9 Home Radio) & Raine (from 99.5 RT, Hit FM 99.5 & 103.5 Max FM) on 87.5 FM 1.

    Considering what she's in the slammer for, I don't think she'd be invited to work in a government office with this particular administration.

    She was previously of Jam 88.3. Good thing she left the station. I disliked her for talking about mainstream pop artists there.

    Someone suggested to me that Jinri Park should be part of FM1 after she was evicted from PBB but I don't think it will be possible because she may be signed to a contract by ABS-CBN as a talent

    Some people asked me on my FB that if Ryan Seacrest's AT40 countdown will be airing on FM1 soon, then it might gonna happen. But as for me, I don't think so.

    Especially in a government station

    Monica recently mentioned that Tracy (of Mellow) will be part of FM1.

    I knew it! Malapit na ang FM1.
  • First on the dial! Can't wait for the actual launch soon
  • James Ty IIIJames Ty III Member ✭✭✭
    Judith Caringal of Sports Radio told me that 87.5 will tentatively be launched in April this year. PBS is still finalizing details on its launch.

    All other PBS stations will also be rebranded. DZSR will become Philippine Radio Sports.
