Energy FM, one of Philippine FM radio’s powerhouses, turns 25 this October. For a quarter of a century, it has been redefining what it means to be among the leading radio stations in the Philippines.
What began as a simple regional program transformed into the heartbeat of the nation through the leadership and vision of Ultrasonic Broadcasting Systems Inc. (UBSI) Chairwoman, Rebecca Ann Sy.
Energy FM quickly became a nationwide anthem as more and more Filipinos tuned in. Weekdays in the early 2000s were overflowing with endless entertainment from Energy FM’s legendary radio jockeys.
The station bagged several KBP Golden Awards in the People’s Choice category across Manila, Cebu, and Naga.
In 2010, Energy FM entered the digital landscape and in the frequency of modern listeners. It pioneered the introduction of K-pop to the Philippines through its segment “KPOP Sarap.”
Recently, Energy FM bagged the top accolades in the country and across the Asia-Pacific, namely, Most Outstanding & Trusted FM Station in the 2022 Asia’s Golden Icon Awards; Most Outstanding FM Station in the 2022 Asian Sterling Awards; Best FM Radio Station in the 33rd Asia Pacific Excellence Awards Thailand; and Global Iconic Radio Broadcasting Station of the Year from Global Iconic Aces.
Energy FM has stood out with its impressive roster of engaging personalities beloved by many listeners.
Papa Jackson joins Energy FM with his signature charm and relatability. He quickly makes a deep audience impact in his main show Hello STG (Sorry, Thank You, Goodbye). His skills and passion eventually brought him the position of station manager – as John Gemperle, shaping the success of the station beyond the mic.
Gandang Kara enters the airwaves, bringing in a new perspective and her online following. Her vibrant approach and unique insights shine in Sincerely, Kara and KarJack – her shared program with Papa Jackson.
Along with fresh voices are trailblazers in the booths of Energy FM. In a show that explores deep secrets and heartfelt letters, Lindsay creates a safe space during Lihim ng Liham through her soothing voice, compelling storytelling, and genuine empathy. While Anong Drama Mo excels in stirring up laughter in the midst of valuable life lessons, all thanks to the charismatic duo of DJs Sheena and Jimbo.
As Energy FM celebrates its 25th year, each program and talent broadcast the station’s commitment to setting the bar of exceptional Philippine radio.
