PIA Camarines Sur inks MOU with 105.5 IDOL FM Naga
NAGA CITY --- To further bolster its information dissemination campaign, the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) –Camarines Sur Provincial Office recently inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with 105.5 Bicol IDOL FM Naga.
The partnership aims to strengthen and widen PIA’s circulation of various government programs and deepen its engagement with diverse audience through the radio program dubbed PIA Radio Café: Kapihan sa IDOL.
Bicol IDOL Area Manager Ken Sumayao Cabaltera said that it is actually the idea of Bicol IDOL FM General Manager Robert Palanca to share the airwaves with different government agencies and provide them with their desired audience.
“Actually, that is GM Palanca’s vision to provide our listeners with a balance and relevant programming that will educate the public regarding matters surrounding them, through innovative, pro-active and informative and ethical approaches,” Cabaltera stated.
PIA, per President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr’s Executive Order No. 16, is one of the communication agencies of the Presidential Communications Office (PCO), under the “control and direct supervision of the President.” It is mandated to help the PCO in “engaging and involving the citizenry and the mass media in enriching the quality of public discourse on all matters of governance.”
