PTV’s digitization efforts and FM2 Philippines, Chavit eyes IBC 13

Three major developments on the state-owned media entities have emerged recently.
After the inking of a deal with NEC Philippines, it has been reported PTV will roll out its digital television transmissions in Metro Manila (which will be improved), as well as in Baguio, Naga, Guimaras, Cebu, and Davao. It is a major step towards the realization of the Duterte government’s plans in putting PTV at par with its commercial counterparts. 

Recently, FM 2 Philippines has relaunched operations, used to be known as DWBR Business Radio. It has so far followed a format similar to other retro stations like 105.9 DCG FM, and others. It has also been reported that the government plans to use the 87.5 frequency for an all-youth station. 

Lastly, former Ilocos Sur governor Luis ‘Chavit’ Singson revealed plans on IBC 13 through an INQUIRER.net event where he revelaed his plans post-Miss Universe. He said he has already introduced offers to the management and will plan to introduce foreign partners to help with content.

With these developments, let’s see if the changes we’re looking forward to in regards to state media is finally realized.
