“Up, up and away, Supermoms!”
Sun.Star Davao, September 9, 2017
Supermoms, it’s time to tune in to the first-of-its-kind Philippine radio station!
With niche programming for mothers and women and supported by dads, families as well as communities all over the archipelago, multi-awarded Mom’s Radio on the FM band is operated by Southern Broadcasting Network.
It is broadcasted in five key provinces, namely, Davao (DXSS 97.9), Cebu (DYAP 88.3), Bacolod (DYCP 90.3), Laoag (DWSN 97.9) and Vigan (DWIS 98.9).
“The radio station has been around for a while but went on hiatus for a few years until its awakening last year”, says Dennis “Big D” Poliquit who has over 20 years of experience in radio and is a proud dad of five kids, with two sets of twins. His show, “Man of the House” with co-host Benjie Cotaoco, airs from Monday to Friday, 12 noon to 3:00 p.m.
Joining the daddies is “Mommy Georgia” or Georgia Cotaoco with her morning show “Breakfast with Moms” every Monday to Friday, 7am-9am. She considers being a devoted mom to her two sons as one of her life’s passions. Together with her husband Benjie, they advocate intentional parenting by inculcating values that please God.
But, that’s not all what Mom’s Radio has in store for mommies. Open to moms, soon-to-be moms, single moms and those who assumed the roles of a mom in the family, the station has also organized the Supermoms Club, a “gathering of like-minded women who aim to equip and empower women, especially moms”.
“Many moms just try to wing it being a mom. But, we want to let other moms know that there are also other moms going through what they are going through. They are not alone. We give information on how to care for themselves and their families through the radio shows and the Supermoms Club”, explains Mommy Georgia.
“In addition, we give attention to marriage as well, including how to raise kids together. We know the family is being attacked and we need to protect the basic unit of society by reiterating the importance of marriage, intentional parenting and the family”, she details.
Other Supermoms Club projects include medical missions, feeding programs, school supplies’ donations, free medical checkup and pampering for mommies, among others.

And, I share what I know to encourage others to pursue their passion”.

Single mom, breast cancer warrior and former OFW Agnes Luna acts as the club’s secretary. “I joined the club because I believe in its advocacy of empowering women, not only as being a mom, but to embrace our own unique abilities and to be an inspiration to others”, the professional makeup artist reveals.
Meanwhile, Rayanne Patiño-Arao holds the position of treasurer. She is a mom of two who is active in event organizing, promotions and tourism development.
And, finally, Supermoms Club P.R.O. Janet Sy-Tancontian is the supportive mom of 29th Southeast Asian (SEA) Games judo bronze medalist Sydney Sy Tancontian and multi-awarded Philippine team judo athlete Chino Sy Tancontian.
“I joined Supermoms club to help other parents get their kids to enter sports. I hope to inspire children to come out of their youth sports experience a winner; feeling good about themselves; and having a healthy attitude towards sports”, Janet relates.
