Background

The program's title comes from the hosts names and the station's (DZBB) call sign letters. Prior to Dobol A, Clavio worked as a correspondent for the radio station DWIZ as a senate reporter. In 1988, he joined GMA Network, doing voice-over for news segments before eventually becoming a reporter. He was offered to co-host his first radio program alongside Sotto, fresh from her three-year stint as host of Katok Mga Misis! on GMA Network in 1998. During the show's first run, the program originally aired on 2 hours (from 8:00 am to 10:00 am). The program won a Golden Dove Award for Outstanding Public Affairs Program from the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas in 1999.

Upon Sotto's departure from the program in 2008, it was replaced by Morning Talk with Arnold Clavio, and later, One on One with Igan , which was hosted by Clavio and GMA News reporter Lala Roque.

It returned on January 13, 2014, as part of the revitalized programming of Super Radyo DZBB. [1] As the radio program returned, it was shortened to 1 hour and instead starting at 10:00 am. Listeners of the show are referred to as "Jeng-Jengers", although"Text populi" was used during its first run.

On April 24, 2017, the program began its simulcast on television on GMA News TV under the Dobol B sa News TV block. [2]

The second run of the program silently ended its broadcast on December 31, 2020, weeks after Ali Sotto left the network due to some issues regarding her status in the radio station. She even made an appearance on Eat Bulaga's "Bawal Judgmental" segment in the midst of her absence in the radio program. During its last episodes, Clavio was accompanied by Rowena Salvacion and Kathy San Gabriel as Sotto's substitute anchor. On January 4, 2021, the network revived the program One on One with Igan , which was renamed as One on One: Walang Personalan, hosted by Arnold Clavio and Rowena Salvacion (later on, with Connie Sison), as replacement for Dobol A.
