It is composed of 21 Bombo Radyo stations and 12 Star FM stations across the Philippines which provide news, public service, drama and music for the audience through the whole world.
Bombo a bass drum in English a popular music instrument is a symbol for the radio network. It is because a Bombo or bass drum is used in every studio of all Bombo Radyo Stations nationwide. It is used by all anchor men and women in their programs by beating the drum several times to stress points and give emphasize on the issues tackled on the air.
It is an effective instrument that listeners can hear live in each current affairs program. This is the brand where Bombo Radio Philippines leads for air wave supremacy. Its humble beginnings started in September 4, 1966 when it is first on air in the city of Iloilo here in Central Philippines where DYFM Bombo Radyo 837 Khz the flagship station was established.
