DZMM Radyo Patrol 630, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, has another reason to celebrate after being hailed as the Radio Station of the Year at the Rotary Club of Manila’s (RCM) annual Journalism Awards held at the New World Hotel ballroom last June 30. The flagship AM radio station of ABS-CBN and the number one AM radio station in Mega Manila, DZMM also received the same honor last year.
ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ leading media and entertainment company, won three other distinctions to be the most awarded news organization that night.
“S.O.C.O.: Scene of the Crime Operatives” host Gus Abelgas was awarded the Television Male Broadcaster of the Year, while “Dos Por Dos” anchor Gerry Baja took home the Radio Broadcaster of the Year award.
Abelgas’ long-running crime investigative program has consistently rated high in its weekend timeslot, with viewers tuning in to learn how to protect their families based on the experiences featured in the show.
Fellow DZMM anchor and reporter, Jasmin Romero, was honored by RCM as Radio Female Broadcaster of the Year.
