Bombo Radyo AM Network
Bombo Radyo Philippines AM division, although not having a station in the capital city of
Manila(but maintaining a news central in Makati), is by far consistently strong in ratings particularly in the Visayasand Mindanaoregions. Its flag ship station, Bombo Radyo Iloilo, based in Iloilo City, has been enjoying the prestige honor of consistently being the number one radio station since its inception during the 1970s. The Bombo Radyo brand has been closely associated with fearless commentaries and controversial exposes against prominent and powerful Filipino politicians, thus making it popular among the masses.
Bombo Radyo stations
tar Radio Network
Bombo Radyo's FM network group, popularly known as Star FM, is equally as strong as its sister AM network group. Its flagship station based in
Manila, even the existence of a substantial number of FM stations operating, is the number one radio station in Metro Manila. The network's strongest market segment is with the provincial or rural people currently residing in Manila helped by its strong brand name in the provinces. Prior to 1994, Bombo Radyo managed its FM stations locally with each individual unique brand name. However this has all been changed in April 1994when the network officially re-branded all 14 FM stations to carry the brand name Star FM and now share the same vision and objective. The re-branding proved to be successful as Star FM nows enjoys strong ratings all across the country.
Star FM in Cauayan, Tuguegarao, Naga, Legazpi, Kalibo, Cagayan De Oro, Butuan, General Santos, Marbel and Iligan are recently defunct.
Bombo Radyo Drama Production Center (Baguio City)
This arm of the radio network has been supplying radio soap opera series for airing at times in between its morning, noon, and evening newscasts and public affairs programs in the Luzon area, notably its Ilocano-speaking populace. Once part of DZWX Bombo Radyo Baguio, It has been spinned-off in late 2007 as the Saleng Productions (Baguio City) Company ("Saleng" meaning "Pine" in the
Ilocano dialect, as it is based in BaguioCity). Its most famous productions were "Pagsarmingan" (Ilocano for "Mirror"), "Laughingly Yours, Bianong" ("Bianong" is the nickname of Fernando Ubado, one of its talents and scriptwriters), and "Doming Mabalin-Amin" (meaning "Do-It-All Doming"). The latter ended its decades-old run in 2005, when reformatting began.
Bombo Radyo Drama Production Center (Bacolod City)
This arm of the radio network has been supplying radio soap opera series for airing at times in between its morning, noon, and evening newscasts and public affairs programs in the Western Visayas and parts of Mindanao, notably its Ilonggo-speaking populace. Its most famous productions were "Tuyang Irmitania", "Condorilla", "Provincial Jail", "Once There was a Love", "Brandon, Alagad sang Kasuguan" among others.
This is Iloilo's best and most-loved comedy show. Set in Barangay Monay, this show tackles varied topics from sex to politics.Famous characters are Tiyo Tagoy and Tiya Alvina, who are constantly at war with each other, thus calling each other as Buklan("full of boils") and Barikuson("full of varicose veins"). Also in the cast is Ati, a business-minded native who is also a good sex counselor.
This show features the adventures of Peping, a ten-year old boy(which seems not to grow up since 1999) who is also the Prince Eczor of the distant planet Tabrix, who is also Condorilla. Half-condor and half-gorilla, this creature always saves the world everytime it is in danger in the hands of Braga, Condorilla's eternal nemesis.
This show narrates the story of a letter-sender and how this story leads to the incarceration of some of the characters.
Once There was a Love
This is the story of every one who has fallen in love and the joy and the pain that it has caused them.
Brandon, Alagad sang Kasuguan
This is the production outfit's attempt at a crime series. It features Brandon, a strong-willed policeman whose main aim is to eradicate evil in society. This, however, had ended when the writer-director transferred to other production outfit.
