Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles hoped that dzMM “will be back on the air soon” as the radio station owned by broadcasting giant ABS-CBN suspended its regular programming after its employees were exposed to two persons under investigation for coronavirus disease.

“Sa mga kasama natin sa media, I was informed that DZMM will be shut down temporarily as a precautionary measure as its employees will have to go into quarantine,” said Nograles.

In a televised presser Friday, the spokesperson of the Inter-agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases emphasized the role of media in disseminating news and information about the coronavirus pandemic.

“Malaki po ang tulong ng media in our efforts to inform our countrymen about the latest developments in government efforts to address the current public health crisis, so we hope that you will be back on the air soon,” according to him.

In a statement Wednesday, dzMM said that its programs would be replaced by shows from the ABS-CBN News Channel until it returns to full operation.
