After several months from its inception in General Santos City, it was declared as over-all number one in morning radio primetime news and public affairs from 4am to 9am, and over-all number 2 in both AM and FM rankings during the official survey conducted by The Nielsen Company.
On the 3rd year of official survey conducted by The Nielsen and Kantar Media, Brigada News FM Gensan slided down to rank number 3 in over-all ranking but with a minimal difference only from rank 2 and rank 1 but, maintained the position of being the king in morning radio primetime in news and public affairs 4am to 9am with a total of 28% over-all listenership ratings while Love Radio of MBC (rank number 1) got only 23% in that time slot (attached file, layout of tarp ratings).
Brigada News FM Koronadal since from its inception is consistently number 1 in listenership in South Cotabato and neighboring provinces and the only high powered 24 hour broadcast station in the area.

Brigada News FM is particular in quality programming. We organized a research team to study the cultures of people in every area we put-up our station for us to analyze and make a better programming that would really fit to our target market. This is the reason why we are always widely listened and patronized wherever we establish our station.
Our program content is focused on our target market, the socio-eco class BCDE and category ages 35 years old to 60 years old and up listeners. The interests in radio listening of this class and category form part of the contents of our radio programs because these people are the family’s income earners, decision makers and have a buying capacity.
Brigada News FM has competitive music programming as well as news and public affairs with reputable and credible news anchors and reporters. News is our top priority. Survey results of any research company in any part of the country show that morning is the primetime in radio and the rated programs with a big audience share are News usually in AM Radios but after news time, 9 o’clock in the morning onwards, listeners are turning their radio from News in the AM Radio to Music in FM Radio.
Today, latest gadget and receivers also have no AM receivers and only FM receivers, reason why Brigada News FM came out as the Trendsetter of new format in radio, combining news and public affairs and music and entertainment, leading to our slogan, Brigada: “The Music and News Authority.”
