KY 91.5, and K91 (1984–2003)Edit

On October 1, 1985, DWKY was known as KY 91.5 under Mabuhay Broadcasting System, Inc. (MBSI) which also owned DZXQ 1350 AM. It played classic rock hits during the late 80's and the rest of the 90's. In 1998, Manny F. Luzon became FM Operations Consultant for MBSI. KY 91.5 then became K91 FM, which mainly played novelty and pop music.

91.5 Energy FM (2003–2011)Edit

DWKY from MBSI was re-launched under a new name, 91.5 Energy FM, with a new brand called Pangga and a recall byline Wag mo sabihin radyo, sabihin mo E-ner-gy in order to compete with the other local stations. Its studios moved to the SYSU Building in Quezon City. From July to November 2006, The Edge Radio of United Christian Broadcasters occupied the 6pm-6am timeslot of Energy FM. In 2008, it ranked second among Metro Manila stations.Template:Citation needed In 2009, DWKY, together with its provincial stations, won in the 18th KBP Golden Dove Awards as Best FM Station of the year.Template:Citation needed In 2010, Manny Luzon eventually left UBSI to join Progressive Broadcasting Corporation (where he transformed NU 107 to 107.5 Win Radio). After 8 years on 91.5, Energy FM signed off on June 1, 2011 and transferred to the 106.7 frequency a month later.

91.5 Big Radio (2011–2014)Edit

91.5 Big Radio was launched in June 1, 2011 at 1:15am. It is managed by Manny Luzon, licensed by former owner MBSI, and resembles the Energy FM format. Bigman Marco (Mark Luzon, formerly known as Sgt. Mark of Energy FM and son of Manny Luzon) was the first to go on board, followed by a few jocks from the Energy FM roster.[1] During its first month, it used a partial stinger of the Energy FM slogan Wag mo sabihing radyo, until it was abandoned upon Energy FM's move to 106.7. During its first 4 months, it reused its old studios in Centerpoint Bldg. in Pasig City, until it moved to its current studios in September 2011. Since late March 2012, Big Radio ranked #3 in the FM radio ratings, based on the KBP Radio Research Council.

91.5 Win Radio (2014)Edit

On June 26, 2014, 91.5 Big Radio ended its airing after three years. It was replaced by 91.5 Win Radio, which used to be aired on 107.5 for the past few years (the 107.5 frequency is now 107.5 Wish FM). A few days prior, Luzon resigned as EVP of PBC.
