KORONADAL CITY - The Notre Dame Broadcasting Corporation (NDBC) has embraced the digital media technology in informing and educating its chief executive listeners (CELs) as it launched Friday another portal of music and information emanating from its AM and FM stations in Central Mindanao.

Fr. Jonathan Domingo, OMI, NDBC chief executive officer, said:  “The NDBC iRadionet mobile application is our commitment to our Mission statement ‘to inspire and empower our Chief Executive Listeners’ (Bidas and Giliws) by offering superior value to them.”

“NDBC has embraced the digital media technology through our latest Shoutcast streaming technology to reach our listeners, not only in areas of our coverage in South Central Mindanao, but anywhere in the world through digital and social media technology,” Fr. Domingo said.

“This means NDBC stations could reach listeners 24/7 and worldwide,” he said, adding that “It took us almost six months to develop the mobile application in partnership with Glen Bastes and his web development team of Converge IT, Solutions INC.”

About 60 years ago, Archbishop Gerard Mongeau, OMI, had envisioned the OMI Media Ministry as “Evangelization thru Mass Media.”

“After six decades, DXMS-AM and other five NDBC stations are now fully digital … Better, Everywhere and Beyond Borders,” Fr. Domingo said.

CELs, referring to Radyo Bida and Happy FM listeners, can now listen to NDBC radio stations using Android mobile phones, from any corner of the world provided the unit is connected to the internet.

Fr. Jonathan Domingo, OMI, NDBC chief executive officer, said the new platform will be an opportunity for NDBC to provide its CELs with credible news, music, informative entertainment and responsible journalism.

The launching was even more meaningful because it came when the OMIs commemorate the formal approval by Pope Leo XII, on February 17, 1826, the newly founded Congregation of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.

Its motto: "He has sent me to evangelize the poor" expressed both its charism and way of life. It is now known as “Oblates Day.”

Before the Papal approval of the congregation, or about 10 years earlier, Oblate missionary priests and brothers was born on January 25, 1816, after Father (now saint) Eugene de Mazenod and four companions came together to preach missions in Provencal, in the rural countryside of southern France.

This year, on January 25, 2017, was the culmination of congregation-wide Triennium, celebrating the 200th (1816-2016) year of foundation.
