MANILA, Philippines – More Filipinos prefer to start their day and get their morning dose of news, information, and commentary from DZMM Radyo Patrol Sais Trenta and its anchors Kabayan Noli De Castro, Ted Failon, and Gerry Baja, who have gone all out in helping the survivors of various disasters in the country.
According to the latest data from Kantar Media Radio Survey, more listeners in Mega Manila preferred tuning in to morning AM radio programs of the three seasoned anchors in May this year.
At 5AM, Gerry delivers scorching commentary in “Garantisadong Balita,” which got an average audience share of 30% for the said month.
Noli also serves up the news agenda for the day in his program “Kabayan” with an audience share of 34%.
Ted, meanwhile, gives blazing and witty opinion and commentary in “Failon Ngayon sa DZMM” with an audience share of 33%.
Noli, Ted, and Gerry also serve the public not only by bringing the day’s latest news but by also leading public service efforts with the help of their respective programs.
Noli headed the distribution of bags, school supplies, and uniform to students who were affected by typhoon Yolanda in Leyte and Samar, the crisis in Zamboanga, and the earthquake in Bohol. This October, ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation and “Kabayan” are set to open seven classrooms in Leyte, and distribute chairs that came from the donations coursed thru Noli. He is also set to lead the inauguration for the said classrooms.
More than 5,000 students in Leyte also benefitted from Ted’s school supply drive. Aside from that, Ted spearheaded the construction of a playground made of rubber at San Fernando Elementary School with the help of sponsors and partners.
Meanwhile, Gerry has also been hands-on on his project “Garantisadong Bangka” which has given away boats made of fiber glass to fishermen in Leyte. They were distributed with the help of the local government and the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources in July with free engines and fishing gear. The project will provide more boats to more fishermen late this year.
With Noli, Ted, and Gerry joining forces for DZMM’s morning block, DZMM remains to be Mega Manila’s only number one AM radio station. In May, it logged an average total day audience share of 30%, versus DWWW’s 18%, DZBB’s 16%, and DZRH’s 14%.
DZMM’s 28th anniversary celebration also continues as it brings back the “Radyo sa Beinte Otso” promo. Stay tuned to DZMM programs for the announcement of the promo run to win special prizes.
