Church-based community radio outfit starts airing in Pampanga
The Holy Cross College (HCC) aired its maiden broadcast through the first ever educational community radio in the eastern part of Pampanga, according to a Philippine Information Agency report.
“Radio Libertas” will air programs that “circle on fides or faith in God; caritas or charity for helping others especially the needy; and libertas or freedom for free press, speech and expression,” the college president Dennis Pangan said.
“We are geared to give voice to the marginalized and the laymen who are oftentimes deprived of their rights. We made this radio to give the homeless, the poor, and the needy the chance to speak,” he was quoted as saying.
“Through this radio, they will be heard by the people, and the concerned government officials. They will see how brave the stakeholders are in the HCC, and the students who will direct the radio,” Pangan said in the report.
The radio outfit will also produce segments that tackle the pressing issues on national, provincial, and local setting, according to the report.
Pangan added that beneficiaries of the radio are the Bachelor of Science in Development Communication students of HCC, with the Municipality of Sta. Ana and the whole province of Pampanga.
“We are temporarily heard on the radio. This May, we will try and do our best to register for AM or FM bands. However, those who want to view the programs could watch live on HCC Facebook page, or access it at ZenoFM,” he said.
