MALAYBALAY CITY (IPS) Bukidnon State University has evolved its longest running radio program, the “BukSU President’s Time” at DXBU 104.5FM into “BukSU Updates” starting October 2019.

Dr. Oscar B. Cabañelez, university president, said the move showed innovation in integrating all the major offices in the university’s radio program.

Instead of showcasing the updates from Office of the President, the program is now featuring the major processes and accomplishments of the three vice presidents’ offices, each taking turn to broadcast week by week.

“This is one of the reasons why I’m thankful to the people behind this program because of the innovation that we integrated and initiated. (The new program) helped to represent all the sectors of the university,”Dr. Cabañelez said on the January 8 episode where he personally served as guest for the program’s first airing in 2020.

Mr. Walter I. Balane, focal person of the OP-Information and Publication Service, said the President’s Time was DXBU’s longest-running radio program. It ran from July 2015 to October 2019. In most of the more than four-year broadcast, Dr. Cabañelez took time to provide BukSU’s stakeholders with weekly updates from his administration’s processes and accomplishments.

Mr. Balane, former operations manager of DXBU, said Dr. Cabañelez wanted to ensure that university stakeholders are provided updates about the university’s actions that’s why he agreed to have the President’s Time radio program in 2015.

For BukSU Updates, content will come from the OP, the offices of the Vice President for Administration, Planning and Development, Vice President for Academic Affairs and Vice President for Research, Extension and International Affairs. The four offices will take time to serve as content provider.

The program segments include sharing of the Values of the Week from the Gender and Development Unit, the main sharing on introduction of the office (Pagpakabana), operational highlights (In-focus) and announcements.

“BukSU Updates” seeks to provide updates to university stakeholders including students, faculty, non-teaching personnel, parents, and other stakeholders of the university to facilitate harmony and cooperation.

The program airs every Wednesday from 3-4p.m. at DXBU 104.5 FM. (OP-Information and Publication Service with reports from Jade D. Montederamos/BukSU Development Communication intern)
