The number 1 station in Metro Manila MOR 101.9 has launched this month the 2018 DJ Hunt Hashtag BuhayKaMORKadangDJ.
Basically, the station is looking for a new DJ and with the popularity of social media stars, the Kapamilya Network’s FM division flagship radio is turning to YouTube for their next radio superstar, how?
1.) First, create your own YouTube account
2.) Record a one minute video that according to their page is described as (yung feel na feel mo!) In short a video that shows your kwela, fun, authentic, entertaining side.
3.) Then visit and register at http://www.mor1019.com
4.) Submit the YouTube link of your video there
5.) Just make sure that the video’s privacy settings it turned to unlisted. Of course, they are doing this so that competiting stations will not be able to take hold of the list of applicants.
The station is doing this because there is so much talent on social media and video platforms like YouTube. Lloyd Cardena Cafe for instance was hired by RMN iFM 93.9 and now he is a mainstay at Love Radio 97.9, at the same timeslot that used to be Papa Jack who is now currently on board 106.7 Energy FM.
And yes you must be 18 to 25 years old. Hahaha (Let’s check with DOLE if this is considered discrimination, but the station can get away with this because they are essentially holding a talent search and not a direct hiring method). So there!
But usually here is how MOR 101.9 (and other FM network flagship station practice) hire new DJs. There are occasions when they import talents from their regional stations. (Example, Carlos Santino used to be from MOR Cebu, and now Papa Charlz, and now he is at iFM 93.9)
MOR 101.9 is really beefing up their on air roster because rivals like Love Radio, Yes FM, even iFM have strong and dynamic radio personalities.
