NTC to close 3 illegal FM radio

The National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) will swoop down at three FM radio stations illegally broadcasting in the city, two of which are reportedly owned by a candidate for city councilor.

       NTC Regional Director Jesus Laureno said  his office will implement the closure of these 3 illegally operating FM radio stations since they are "on-air" without the necessary NTC broadcast permits.


       The locations of the two (out of three) illegal FM stations were already spotted by the NTC during an earlier surveillance conducted last week.

       Engr. Dennis Rocamora, OIC of NTC-Bohol said that per verifications conducted with the central offices of the Broadcast Service Department in Manila, the three Tagbilaran based FM stations are not registered.

       Two of the three illegal FM radio stations are identified with candidate for city councilor, businessman Djingo Rama. The two stations are currently airing his radio ads endorsing his candidacy.

                  "The NTC will never allow any illegal  radio station to operate," Laureno concluded.
