The idea for I-Radio came about during the speech of His Excellency Ambassador Adnan V. Alonto in one of the recent FilCom events at the Philippine Embassy - Riyadh.
He mentioned there that he got inspired by one of the internet radio he chanced upon and heard during his short stint in Hawaii. Out of that claim by the good ambassador, FilCom groups immediately got challenged and visualized the idea of creating a similar one here in KSA to be utilized for a more noble purpose: to reach out and help our fellow Filipinos living and working all over the kingdom by providing informative broadcasts aimed at guiding and assisting them in ways more than one.
Hence, through the initiative of TAMA–KSA (Tapang At Malasakit Alliance - Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) and by incorporating the ideas of both social media and radio, formation of I-Radio started taking shape under the following objectives:
Now, I-Radio is all set physically, materially and technically and being readied for its test broadcasts soon that would eventually lead to its official launching at the Philippine Embassy – Riyadh on the 3rd week of February, 2018.
