DZRH Radio: Innovating Trends To Uplift AM Stations' Status

One Nation, One Station" is the catch phrase of DZRH radio, one of the radio stations in Metro Manila.

Its first airing date was July 15, 1939 with a frequency of 666 kHz. The station is operated and owned by Manila Broadcasting Company. DZRH's studio is found along CCP Complex, Pasay City, Philippines. On the other hand, its transmitter is found in Barangay Malanday, Valenzuela.

On the internet, this radio station can also be heard. With its website, DZRH initiated the use of different interactive facets such as:
