(Manila, Philippines, June 14, 2021) In observance of World Radio Day, celebrated every 13th day of February, RMN Foundation, Inc., launched the “One Radio” campaign. This movement is part of the “Radyo Edukasyon” program of the RMN Foundation, under its Corporate Social Responsibility pillar.
As the pandemic continues to hinder the educational support for students, the campaign is focused on highlighting the importance of radio in information dissemination through its accessibility and far reach. Radio sets would be distributed for free to all deserving and indigent families and communities in the Philippines.
“The One Radio program means a great deal to the Foundation. We know that there are communities out there who rely heavily on radio to receive needed information, especially during these trying times when access to information is limited. We are delighted to give the support of the RMN Network and are mindful of the needs of our fellow Filipinos around the country,” said RMN’s President and Chairman, Eric S. Canoy.
This month, the Foundation through RMN stations in key cities such as Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Cotabato, General Santos, Iloilo, Kalibo, Naga, and Zamboanga distributed hundreds of solar radio sets in various communities to hear the latest news and information.
Last February, the Foundation successfully awarded radio units through an online contest across different provinces in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Winners were announced on the official RMN and iFM local stations on their respective Facebook pages with the hashtags #RMNOneRadio, #WorldRadioDay2021, and #IsangBayanIsangRadyo.
“Napakahalaga at malaki naitutulong sa pang-araw-araw na buhay ng tao, kung wala kang TV, dito makaka-update ka ng mga balita na nangyayari sa bansa, at the same time nalilibang sa pakikinig ng mga drama at kanta. Maaaliw ka sa mga kwentong bayan at artista. ‘Yan ang nagagawa ng radyo sa atin noon, ngayon, bukas hanggang sa mga taon at henerasyon pang darating. – Jennelane Hierro of Baguio City. Winner of One Radio last March.
“Malaking ambag sa ating pang-araw-araw na pamumuhay ang radyo dahil dito p’wede tayong malibang, maaliw at higit sa lahat maaasahan sa mga mahahalagang impormasyon tulad ng mga news at weather forecast lalo na kapag walang kuryente p’wede mo silang mapakinggan gamit ang batery para sakin malaki Ang ambag ng radyo sa buong mundo hindi lang pang individual or pangkalahatan. Kaya naman happy world radyo day po sating lahat…. Mahilig ang tatay ko sa radyo at nanay ko kaso pumanaw na si tatay kaya si nanay ko nalang. 9 years na- stroke pero libangan n’ya sa higaan n’ya pakikinig ng radyo. Salamat sa aliw at tuwa na hatid nyo po.sna mapili ako para sa nanay ko. God bless and more power. – Joy Estrada of Dagupan City, Pangasinan. Winner of One Radio last February.
Radyo Edukasyon: Established when the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country and the lack of face-to-face education became a concern for a number of students, the Radyo Edukasyon pillar of the Foundation provided media support for various quality educational programs to reach the largest number of audiences through the strength of the RMN networks’ radio broadcasting stations.
