The Bacolod City government, in partnership with the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP), observed World Radio Day last Thursday in the city’s Barangay Pahanocoy.
The event began with a motorcade from the Bacolod Public Plaza to the barangay gym, followed by a mass officiated by Fr. Januarios Paglinawan. In addition, around 100 senior citizens took part in a fellowship lunch.
Among those present for the celebration included Bacolod City Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran; City Councilors Simplicia Distrito, Carlos Jose Lopez, Israel Salanga, and Wilson Gamboa, Jr.; among others.
Meanwhile, on February 29, KBP-Negros Occidental will host the Tingog Kag Handurawan Awards at the SMX Convention Center at SM City Bacolod, which honors outstanding radio reports and drama talents./WDJ
