Bishop Patricio A. Buzon, SDB, DD blesses the newly installed transmitter of DYAF CMN Bacolod in Brgy. Sum-ag, Bacolod City on February 15, 2022.
With the new transmitter, DYAF 1143 kHz, the official AM radio station of the Diocese of Bacolod, hopes to reach more of the parishes and communities all over the Diocese and the island of Negros for the propagation of the Gospel.
In his message, the Bishop underscored the relevance of radio in the promotion of the truth, especially nowadays, when "the truth is being assailed" from every side because of misinformation and fake news.
The Bishop likewise reminded DYAF personnel to live out their commitment to upholding the truth since "our radio is named Radyo Totoo." According to him, this commitment is actually a commitment to Christ since "He is the truth."
Bishop Buzon also thanked the Diocese of Cologne, Germany and the Salesian Province of Bonn for making the acquisition of the new transmitter possible.
Aside from the new equipment, the transmitter area has also experienced a "face-lift" with the construction of an extension for the transmitter house. This will serve as work and rest space for DYAF technicians on duty. Also, a cemented pathway and a gate were added as part of on-site developments.
Present at the blessing were Rev. Fr. Gregorio Neri, DYAF CEO, Rev. Fr. Roy Christian D. Gesulgon, SocComm Head, Ms. Chona Gosiaoco, DYAF Station Manager, Ms. Julie Gonzales, DYAF News Chief and Head of Production, Mr. Delmer Dilig and Mr. Christopher de la Cruz, DYAF Technicians, Engr. Bob Edezo, Technical Consultant and Mr. Ruel Tesoro, Admin. Assistant and Liaison Officer.
