 Copyright -

ABS-CBN DZMM (630 kHz Metro Manila) is the flagship AM station of ABS–CBN Corporation in the Philippines. The station's studio is located at the ABS-CBN Broadcast Center in Quezon City, while the transmitter is located at Obando, Bulacan.

DZMM is also simulcast via The Filipino Channel and also has a television channel on SkyCable named DZMM TeleRadyo where the studio and hosts of its programs can be seen by its listeners and viewers.

It began on October 19, 1953, DZAQ, the forerunner of DZMM was the first radio station of the former ABS (Alto Broadcasting System) of the Quirinos under President Elpidio Quirino's brother, Antonio (originally came from the pre-1953 experimental station DZBC). DZAQ features news, variety and music programs on an AM format which then the basis of DZAQ-TV, years later when ABS and CBN were merged into a single network in 1967, DZAQ switched into CBN-owned DZXL, another AM broadcaster simply named as DZXL Radyo Patrol, the pre-martial law station of ABS-CBN until 1972.

However on the night of September 23, 1972, both DZXL, DZYK and DZAQ-TV were halted as Metrocom forces seized ABS-CBN broadcast complex two days after President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law, even DZAQ/DZXL personalities are arrested because of strict censorship as it went off the air, two years after the forced shut down of all radio and television stations, DWWW, a crony-owned AM station of Kanlaon Broadcasting System (KBS) began to air in 1974 which contains not only in news, but also public service programs and music as well. Veteran anchors and new recruits like Johnny de Leon, Rod Navarro, Noli de Castro and Vic Morales are some the announcers of the station, came into DWWW at that time. When the 1986 EDSA Revolution was started for three days, reformist rebels stormed into RPN broadcast complex as DWWW knocked off from the air following the capture of channel 4 on the morning of February 24, 1986. At the end, both DWWW and DWOK of BBC were sequestered by the government.

The fall of the Marcos Regime brought about the return of ABS-CBN. In July 1986, then newly-formed Presidential Commission on Good Government turned two radio stations, DWWW of RPN and DWOK of BBC, back to ABS-CBN. DWWW was renamed DZMM and resumes broadcasting. Lito Balquierda Jr., Vice-President for Radio, spearheaded the return of the giant network to the local broadcasting scene.   From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
