A NEW AM radio station in Cagayan de Oro is set to go on air in the next few days. Ultracraft Broadcasting Corporation owned by Agapito Suan of Ultracraft Advertising reportedly bought the franchise of DXOR of then PN Roa Broadcasting System owned by the late City Mayor Pedro “Oloy” Roa.
The new station will have their office at Suan Arcade, along Masterson Avenue near the overpass in Carmen.
Accordingly, most of their staff including anchors and reporters came from the former “Radio Aguila ng Bayan”.
Once “ON AIR”, it will be the 7th AM activse radio station in Cagayan de Oro City (they will re-activate DXOR). I think they will also change their call sign. Below is the list of AM radion stations in the city.
