Nat'l Youth Commission launches 87.9 NYC FM mobile radio station  

QUEZON CITY, May 5 (PIA) -- The National Youth Commission (NYC) is set to launch today its mobile radio station 87.9 NYC FM.

The NYC FM mobile radio is mounted on the commission's Cyberspace League Van parked at the Semicon Corporate Building in Pasig City.

It will begin broadcast at 9:30 a.m. with special guests invited by the NYC.

Coinciding with the launch of the mobile radio station is the manifesto signing for the Kilusang Kabataan Kontra Katiwalian, an advocacy spearheaded by the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) under the leadership of Chairman Greco Belgica. 

Solidarity messages will also be delivered by NYC Chairperson Ryan Enriquez and other officials from the NYC, Department of the Interior and Local Government, PACC, Presidential Communications Operations Office, and the National Telecommunications Commission, to be aired over 87.9 NYC FM.

According to the NYC, the mobile radio project is seeing the benefits of getting youth on the airwaves.

By putting young people in the driver’s seat, they are creating opportunities for dialogue and growing their youth audiences, it said.

Radio can also be inexpensive to produce, broadcast, and distribute, requiring minimal technical expertise, and young people gain the conceptual and broadcast skills quickly. 

Through the project, the NYC hopes to create a forum to talk about the challenges being experienced by the youth, to voice their concerns, or to share their stories. (PIA NCR)
