Janssen Radio or DYJR 106.5 FM was officially launched in Holy Name University on September 13, 2016.
HNU President Fr. Francisco Estepa, SVD, announced that Janssen Radio is now officially on air and thanked all those who made the launching of the radio station possible.
The event was attended by Bohol Chronicle Radio Corporation (BCRC) General Manager Peter Dejaresco, City Mayor John Geesnell Yap II, Word Broadcasting Corporation Chairman Fr. Eduardo Rocha, SVD, National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), and the administration as well as the students and faculty of Holy Name University.
DYJR 106.5 is a non-commercial radio station as it primarily serves the interests of students, teachers, and the internal and external stakeholders of the university.
Its transmission runs from three to five kilometer-radius which means it can reach the whole area of Dampas up to Lindaville, Tagbilaran City.
The station broadcasts mainly in English with some Cebuano programming included.
The objective of the radio station is to educate the students and to provide quality information as well as entertainment while producing dynamic Communication students who will be media practitioners in the future.
Being the fifth campus radio station run by the SVDs nationwide, Janssen Radio is in line with Blessed Arnold Janssen’s mission “to be witnesses of the word and messengers of evangelization.”
The crowd were entertained by HNU Chorale Choir Master Fr. Irvin Garsuta and a Paujong performance by the Diwanag Dance Theater and Cultural Troupe. (J. Anne Cruz)
