Manila Broadcasting Company (PSE: MBC) is a radio and television network in the Philippines. Its AM flagship station, DZRH is the oldest radio station in the country.

MBC's corporate headquarters and studios are located at MBC Building, Sotto St., CCP Complex, Pasay City. The current president is Ruperto Nicdao Jr.



MBC owns over 500 radio stations throughout the Philippines. The company has eight different brands; the first seven and most well known of which are DZRH Nationwide, Aksyon Radyo, Love Radio, Yes! FM, Hot FM, Radyo Natin & The Beat FM. The most recent addition to the MBC brand is Easy Rock, which was created after the acquisition of DWRK on October 8, 2008.

DZRH first went on air as KZRH on July 1, 1939 by the Heacock Company and is the oldest surviving radio station in the Philippines. It also opened its sister station, KZRC (now DYRC) in Cebu City. After World War II, two prominent businessmen, then-Ambassador JM Elizalde and his brother Manuel took over KZRH and KZRC, of which formed the new network as Manila Broadcasting Company.

Aside from radio, it has returned into TV broadcasting with its cable TV channel (RHTV, or DZRH Television) and four regional TV channels (TV Natin, or Radyo Natin Television). MBC was also a TV broadcaster, holding license to Channel 11 before Martial Law.
