History

DWBL was initially known as WBL during the Martial Law era. At that time, it was the top-rated radio station in Metro Manila airing a Top 40 format. Willy "Hillbilly Willy" Inong, Rudolph Rivera, Bernie Buenaseda, Orlando S. Mercado and Mike Enriquez were among the roster of the station. In mid-1985, when most of the jocks moved to DWKC-FM and formed WKC, Buenaseda remained on air, but left after a few months to set up Magic 89.9. The following year, DWBL reformatted into a talk station, offering brokered programming. [2]

In April 2015, 8TriMedia Broadcasting Network bought part of DWBL's time for its programs hosted by popular radio personalities, such as Dr. Rey Salinel, former Manila City mayor Alfredo Lim, Miguel Gil, Percy Lapid (who returned to the station in 2020), Shalala, and Lloyd Umali. It lasted until October 2015, when it moved its airtime to DZRJ 810 AM, along with new programs. [3]
