Historical Background
DZBB was established on March 1, 1950 by Robert "Uncle Bob" Stewart, in a small office space in Calvo Building, Escolta, Manila with mostly second-hand equipment and an old, surplus radio transmitter. The station was then broadcasting on the frequency of 580 kilocycles. Despite of lack of new broadcasting facilities, the station has scored many milestones with its news, senate and congress coverage, breaking news, exclusives, and blow-by-blow accounts of major national events. It also pioneered on trendsetting shows such asCamay Theater of the Air, Lovingly Yours, Helen, Kahapon Lamang, Tawag ng Tanghalan,Newscoop, Kwentong Kutsero and others. Some of these shows eventually went to television. DZBB was also the first to air several live coverage extended not just to news and public affairs, but also to entertainment and educational programs. In 1957, DZBB moved to the new and current home at EDSA, Quezon City. Due to the success of DZBB, Stewart ventured to television on October 29, 1961 as DZBB-TV Channel 7 with the branding RBS-7 (now known as GMA-7 Manila). The station seized and closed in September 1972 due to Martial Law. Two years later, Channel 7, DZBB and other provincial radio and television stations were eventually sold to the triumvirate of Gilberto Duavit, Sr., Menardo Jimenez and Felipe Gozon. At the same time, DZBB returned to the airwaves under the branding Dobol B, and was a full service radio station with news, music and entertainment programming. In 1979, DZBB moved to the present frequency of 594 kHz, in response to the adoption of the 9 kHz spacing on AM radio stations in the Philippines. The station was known as "Bisig Bayan" in July 17, 1989 to January 3, 1999. Their new identity made the station more popular to radio listeners in Metro Manila. Rafael "Paeng" Yabut, Bobby Guanzon, Lito Villarosa, Rene Jose, Rey Pacheco, Raul Virtudazo, Jimmy Gil, Arman Roque, Rose "Manang Rose" Clores, German Moreno, Inday Badiday and Helen Velawere the personalities of the "Bisig Bayan" format. It was also in the early 1990s when DZBB came out with "Kape at Balita", a morning news/commentary/talk show hosted by Bobby Guanzon and then GMA News reporter Jessica Soho. In January 4, 1999, the station was renamed "Super Radyo DZBB 594" and much of their programming focuses on news and current events and now it still simulcast GMA & GMA News TV programs such as 24 Oras, Saksi, Balitanghali, Startalkand others. In 2010, for the first time in Philippine radio history, DZBB and its rival station DZMM of ABS-CBN made a historical simulcast when they had two children named James and Jesus, asked for help to find the missing parents named Pascual and Norma Bantillan from Bohol on a rival program on DZMM Aksyon Ngayon Global Patrol and eventually reunited through DZBB's program Aksyon Oro Mismo.
