Wish 107.5 has reached another milestone with their YouTube channel reaching over 5 million subscribers.
Ever since it hit the airwaves in 2014, Wish FM has achieved many ‘firsts’ including the first and only mobile radio booth in the Philippines — the Wish Bus.
They also spearheaded Wishcovery, the first and only online singing competition that provides a stage for aspiring singers across the country to show off their world-class talent.
The Wish Music Awards also combines music and charity. They put the spotlight on the best Filipino Artists and at the same time provide assistance to their chosen charity. Wish has already given over a million pesos -worth of donation to charities over the years.
Wish 107.5 has been hailed as the best FM station during the GEMS Awards 2019 on Thursday.
It is no surprise why Wish FM, spearheaded by Kuya Daniel Razon, already won numerous awards despite being in its early years.
During the third GEMS Hiyas ng Sining Awards 2019, held at the Center for Performing Arts in Muntinlupa city, Wish FM was recognized as the best FM station in the country.
“Kumpara sa iba na dekada na ang binilang, ngunit nanggulat sila sa mga tagapakinig sa paraan at istilo nilang kaibig-ibig. Nasapul agad nila ang pulso ng masa, di lang ng mga sosyal at may pihikang panlasa, kahit saan mang dako, istasyon nila ay bukam-bibig sa musika at tinig nilang nakakakilig. Para sa ating Best Radio Station FM, Wish FM 107.5, (Compared to [other stations] that are already decades old, this station had a unique style that captured the hearts of everyone, not just the elite. Everywhere, their station shines when it comes to music. For our Best Radio Station FM, Wish FM 107.5)” the GEMS Award commentator said.
Since it hit the airwaves in 2014, it already struck the hearts of music lovers. Wish 107.5 changed the stage in performing hit songs after the first and only mobile radio booth in the country, the Wish Bus, was launched.
Local artists across the country were also given the opportunity to show off their talents, not only in the Philippines but also abroad.
Whether you’re already a veteran in the music industry or just starting, Wish 107.5 provides equal opportunity to share your music.
Wish’s YouTube channel has also become an online favorite because of its sound and video quality. Many featured artists already gained millions of views.
The Wish 107.5 representatives, DJ Faye and DJ Adam, are grateful for the support of the listeners and vows to continue providing a unique experience when it comes to listening to music.
