In January 1979, the Act was amended to provide for the appointment of a Director of Broadcasting to undertake general supervision of the broadcasting and information services of the State, and two (2) Managers, one for radio broadcasting and the other for television broadcasting. Hurricane David in that year destroyed the television service, leaving only the radio service of the Corporation operating.
During that period, DBS Radio broadcast on wavelengths of 595 AM and 88.1FM. The Station was on air seventeen (17) hours a day, Monday to Saturday and sixteen and one half hours (16 1/2) hours on Sunday.
Many Managers and staff members have walked through the halls of DBS Radio, some to transcend to greater heights, some to move on to other fields of endeavor and others to return to a second stint of service to the corporation.
DBS – the Nation’s Station is destined to continue, until who knows when – to educate, inform and entertain the Nation, and the World by extension with the introduction of the World Wide Web!
