The media landscape in Koronadal City (just an hour’s drive north of General Santos City) just gets more interesting. Kantar Media/KBP-RRC has surveyed some households last September and the results are released just this week.

95.7 Brigada News FM Koronadal signed on last February 2013 and it wasn’t included in the 2013 Kantar Media survey, which hailed Bombo Radyo Koronadal as the overall #1 radio station and 100.1 Love Radio Koronadal as the #1 FM station.

Things have changed since then.

Kantar Media just declared 95.7 Brigada News FM Koronadal as the new overall #1 radio station, dethroning Bombo Radyo Koronadal on the overall #1 crown and Love Radio as the #1 FM station (the crown that station achieved since the 2011 Nielsen survey, thanks to Nicole Hyala, Chris Tsuper and Papa Jack). 95.7 Brigada News FM achieved the rating percentage of 7.085% and the audience share of 63.613.

100.1 Love Radio Koronadal, the former king of Koronadal FM, achieved the rating percentage of 2.111% and the audience share of 18.951. 91.7 Happy FM Koronadal (the oldest FM station in the city) achieved the rating percentage of 1.885% and the audience share of 16.919. 97.3 Gold FM (signed on last November 2013) achieved the rating percentage of 0.044% and the audience share of 0.3191. 97.9 Spring Radio (based in Tampakan, South Cotabato, but is included on the survey) achieved the rating percentage of 0.015% and the audience share of 0.126.

On Koronadal AM, 1026 Bombo Radyo Koronadal achieved the rating percentage of 0.95% (4th overall radio station) and the audience share of 59.38, hence retaining as the #1 AM station. RMN Koronadal 639 (having recovered from being #3 AM station on the last Kantar Media survey last 2013) achieved the rating percentage of 0.32% and the audience share of 19.79. Radyo Bida Koronadal 963 (which signed on this year) achieved the rating percentage of 0.29% and the audience share of 18.21. 1062 DXKI (the oldest AM station in the city) achieved the audience share of 0.04% (was #2 AM station at the last Kantar Media survey last 2013) and the audience share of 2.62.

(The data provided above are based from Kantar Media.)

Just as you thought that things get more interesting, Bombo Radyo Koronadal demanded an explanation on why Bombo Radyo Koronadal is the overall #4 radio station on the 2015 Kantar Media survey and a hard copy of the 2015 Kantar Media survey, like the hard copy of the 2013 Kantar Media survey that they received last January 2014, demanding “justice for all radio stations in South Cotabato.”

My opinion is that listeners in Koronadal made the verdict and we should respect the decision. Radio stations should respect the verdict of the listeners on the latest Kantar Media survey. Just show some respect and avoid arguing on social media about what radio station ahould they listen to. Ratings are just numbers, but what’s important is that the radio stations serve their listeners across Koronadal City, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Maguindanao and Cotabato Province with balanced programming, latest news, the hottest music and the important information people need in their daily lives.
