Meanwhile, MOR and Queen of Primetime Radio DJ Chacha Babes join other Kapamilya TV programs and personalities in the star-studded list of nominees for this year’s Yahoo! Celebrity Awards. MOR is nominated for FM Radio Station of the Year, while DJ ChaCha is nominated for Female DJ of the Year.
FM radio listeners and www.MOR1019.com viewers worldwide with Yahoo accounts can vote for MOR and ChaCha online via Yahoo.com.ph/celebrityawards until July 12 (Saturday) at 12 noon. Fans can also vote through the Kakaotalk application on their mobile phones.
It was July 8 last year when ABS-CBN’s official FM station in Metro and Mega Manila was relaunched as MOR, with Daniel, Vice, and Toni Gonzaga as the new “faces of MOR.” From then on, MOR ruled the hearts of on-air listeners and online viewers in the country and abroad.
Alongside the hit relaunch of MOR is the growing popularity of DJ ChaCha. Aside from her top-rating “naughty and nice” radio show “Heartbeats with DJ ChaCha Babes,” her book “Napakasakit Ate ChaCha” also made it to the best-sellers’ list of bookstores nationwide.
