Fr. Larry de Guia, OMI, led the launching and inauguration of DXOM-AM, the
sixth radio station of NDBC.

Bida Koronadal to search for truth and integrity. I pray that DXOM-AM will
promote truth and integrity in society by being accountable for its own news,”
he said then.

I hope Radyo Bida Koronadal will support the
search for integrity and the establishment of integrity in our society,” he added.

We need to seek peace, we need to work for peace and pray for peace…and I pray
that DXOM-AM will be true to its identity as part of NDBC as radio for peace in
the then Cotabato empire,” he said.

Ms. Agnes Myra Pinol, Radyo
Bida Koronadal and Happy FM Koronadal station manager, said the station took

affecting them, Pinol said. sand// (The voices behind DXOM-AMRadyo Bida from left Roel Osano, Emily Daban, Mark Jamillo andMike Balquin) It
