HistoryEdit

[edit]DWWW 630 kHzEdit

DWWW began in 1974 under 630 kHz. At that time, it was owned by Kanlaon Broadcasting System (now Radio Philippines Network/ETC). The studios of the station was located then at the Chronicle Building in Pasig. Veteran anchors and new recruits like Johnny de Leon, Rod Navarro, Noli de Castro and Vic Morales are some the announcers of the station.

In July 1986, the Presidential Commission on Good Government turned DWWW (KBS) and DWOK (BBC) back to ABS-CBN. DWWW was renamed DZMM and resumes broadcasting.

[edit]DZBM/DWOO/DWAT 780/DWWW 774kHzEdit

The origins of the station started as DZBM 780 kHz in 1963 under the Mareco Broadcasting Network, Inc. This served as the promotional radio station for Villar Records and Mabuhay Records. In 1973, DZBM changed its callsign to DWOO, changed its frequency to 774 kHz and its format to news & talk. In 1987, DWOO changed again as DWAT and served as the first station of veteran broadcasters, Fernan Gulapa (now with DZBB), Willie Matawaran (now with DZIQ), and the son of the late Louie Beltran, Cito Beltran. In 1997, Vic Morales bought the MBNI's flagship AM station to the new network called Interactive Broadcast Media. The station revived its old station DWWW under 774 kHz.
