OMG! Awards Best Radio Station of the Year

OMG! Best FM Radio Station – When they predicted that radio would soon face extinction, the local radio scene looks resilient because some actually evolve with the changing times.

Yahoo! Philippines OMG! lists down five best FM stations that show how radio can stretch its lifespan:

Tambayan 101.9 – ABS-CBN made the right choice when it repositioned its FM station as listeners' hangout place in 2009. It complements with the network's overall Kapamilya brand and continues to capture a huge chunk of the listeners' pie.

Tambayan's current programs like Dear Jasmin, Anong Meron, Usapang Kanto and many more continue to be a treat to the listening public. DJs like Arnold Rei, Martin D., China Heart, Cha-Cha, Charlie and Jasmin.

Meanwhile, Its numerous wins in UP Gandingan Awards show the FM station holds a place in the students' picky medium choices.


Magic 89.9 – Magic 89.9 saw history unfolding when EDSA revolution began a few days after their first broadcast. Since then, the FM station goes on with its own history by broadcasting what it calls “today's best music” every single day.

From early morning to the wee hours the next day, 89.9 is home to good music and equally great shows like Good Times with Mo Twister, On Demand with Boom Gonzales and Carla Dunareanu, Pop Stop with Andi-9 and Jessica and Boys Night Out with Slick Rick, Tony Toni, and Sam YG.

Barangay LS 97.1
– GMA's FM radio arm makes sure it keeps its music closer to masses by airing 24/7 the songs they will surely love. And true to its station name, Barangay LS houses audiophiles whose names masses can surely relate to--Papa Baldo, Papa Dan, Papa Dudut, Mama Belle, Mama Cy and some other household-sounding names.

Its set of DJs complements some of its programs like Potpot and Friends, RadyoNobela, Sikat Sa Barangay, Talk to Papa, Bida Sa Barangay and many more.

Just last year, after clinching the most online votes, Yahoo! OMG Awards picked Barangay LS the Best FM Station.

RX 93.1 – Monster Radio remains at the forefront of English FM stations in the country.

It's also home to some of the most irreverent and wackiest shows and DJs on radio, like Drive Thru by Andre, Chris and Jinri, The Daily Survey with Karen and Jay A, Live hosted by Rico and Francesca, and of course, The Morning Rush with Chico, Delamar and Gino.

Mellow 94.7 – Keeping yourself from songs with too much baggage or just too loud for your ears? Mellow 94.7 will have you covered.

The FM station keeps you company--from The Wake Up Show to the Office Radio, to niched talk shows that discuss business, office concerns, careers and a whole lot more--94.7 walks you through the day from sun-up to sundown.
