ABOUT AKSYON RADYO
From the City of Bacolod, the commercial and political hub in Negros Occidental, dyEZ Aksyon Radyo-Bacolod traces its roots to the city of La Carlota where it first started operations from the administrative building of the then Elizalde-owned Central Azucarera De La Carlota in the 1960s.
The small community radio station, originally having the call sign of dyEN, hosted some of the pioneer broadcasters in the province until the declaration of Martial Law when it was closed down. Several years later, it resumed operations as dyEZ and became the dominant news and music station before the proliferation of FM stations. This was known at that time as DYEZ Sunshine City Bacolod, the localized version of Manila’s DWIZ (now owned by Aliw Broadcasting Corporation) used at that time as Sunshine City.
By the 1980s, dyEZ shifted its programming to full-time news and public affairs. With it came the change of name – from Radyo Balita to Radyo Owang – until finally settling on what is widely perceived as the most the appropriate name for a dynamic news and public affairs station: Aksyon Radyo.
Now on its 49 year of broadcasting, Aksyon Radyo Bacolod through its radio announcers and management is dedicated to provide and promote the constitutional rights of every Filipino- its freedom of speech, of expression, and of the press.
