Radio station Wave 89.1 ends broadcasting

Wave 89.1 made its final broadcast on Monday, April 15.

On Facebook Monday, the radio station posted a statement, expressing gratitude for its supporters’ years of love and support.

”The end is here,” Wave 89.1 said. “We want to thank everyone for all the love and support over the years. What a wild ride it has been, Manila.”

“We've been receiving many stories on how Wave touched your lives, and how you've grown up with us. The feels are real,” it continued. “While our heart is being pinched we wanna officially announce that Wave 89.1 has made its final broadcast.”

Wave 89.1 said they changed the game and “no one can say otherwise.”

The station also thanked its former DJs, managers, directors, techs, guests, and anyone else who visited the studio.

As of writing, Wave has deleted the photo of its statement on Facebook, replacing it with a photo of a map. "Some updates to come soon. Please continue to comment any memories or stories you wanna share about Wave 89.1," it said instead.

The photo of the statement has also been deleted on Instagram, while the station has locked its X account.

Meanwhile, DJ and program director DannieBoi Farmer explained a new group is coming to the frequency to do a different kind of programming, 

"Some changes have occurred and I am stepping down," he said but promised he would be back “somewhere again soon.”

“Don't worry, I'm not done! God bless and much love.. Manila, it's been a hell of a ride. Let's see what The Lord has in store for me next,” he said.

Wave 89.1 first started as KB 89.1 back in 1975. It is known for playing R&B, hip-hop and rhythmic contemporary music.
