Radio station shut down for
lacking mayor’s permit

Hinobaan Mayor Ma. Teresa Bilbao yesterday said her office padlocked Radyo Natin Hinobaan 105.3 FM on Friday for failure to acquire a mayor’s permits.

Vicente Paulo Decena Pampliega, who has a radio program at the station, said Radyo Natin Hinobaan of MBC is operated by Segundino Taladico.

He said programs espousing the advocacies of Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. are aired on that station and it is believed that the shutdown was politically motivated.

Pampliega is the host of the program “UNA Negros Paglaum sang Probinsiya Para sa Masa”.

Bilbao, who is running under the Nationalist People’s Coalition ticket, whose standard bearer is Vice Governor Genaro Alvarez, denied that politics was the reason for the shutdown.

The radio station needs to comply with requirements, she said, pointing out that it had not availed of a mayor’s permit since 2010.*CPG
