Caceres Archbishop Rolando Tria Tirona has launched a radio program in partnership with the Caceres Commission on Communications (CCCom) and the Caceres Renewal Communities (CRC).

Debuting its first episode last March 3, Kumusta po, Bishop? is a teleradio program shown on PBN TV 5 and heard on 98.3, the Mother’s Touch, every Sunday at 7:30 in the morning.

Hosted by the archbishop himself, the program features two segments that allow the lay faithful to take a look at the pastoral ministry of the head of the Archdiocese. The segments are Kumusta Parokya, stories on the Parishes visited by the Archbishop within the week, and Isyu, the Archbishop’s take on the current debates and events of the Roman Catholic Church. For the last two weeks, the show discussed the Conclave and the election of Pope Francis.

Set in a homey atmosphere, the 30-minute show is co-hosted by Adonis Aguilar, Jr., Tess Bañares Delfin (co-host of Simbanwaan) and Rev. Fr. Erwin Blasa (Secretary to the Archbishop). Head writer of the show is Myrna Bermudo.

The show invites as guests the heads of Archdiocesan Commissions and Parish Priests. The weekly teleradio program can also be viewed at
