DEAR KUYA is a three-hour program of UNTV-Radio La Verdad 1350 which goes on air during weekdays, from 9:00am to 12:00nn, hosted by multi-awarded humanitarian and broadcast-journalist Kuya Daniel Razon.
Primarily, the program aims to bring back the glorious days when radio was still the basic source of information and entertainment. Hence, Dear Kuya offers both information and entertainment â€“ an alternative to the same time slot shows which are saturated with political bickering and exposĂ©s.
Catering to all sectors of society, DEAR KUYA features philosophical and moral discussions on issues that directly affect society today. The discussion of each topic closes with the words of wisdom based on the teachings of the Holy Scriptures explained by the programâ€™s resource person, Bro. Eli Soriano.
Inspiring music relative to the topic being discussed provides a soothing ambience. The program aims to establish a healthy interaction with its listeners and encourages them to send text messages and/or post their comments and reactions about the program on various social networking sites. But since the program also wants to be of help to its listeners who are beleaguered by problems and in need of enlightenment and spiritual advice, they are encouraged to write about it and send to the programâ€™s host. The chosen letter sender of the month will receive a prize of P10,000 as well as a chance have his or her story dramatized by UNTV-Radio La Verdadâ€™s voice talents, with Kuya Daniel as the narrator at the last segment of Dear Kuya (11am to 12:00nn). The show concludes with a Bro. Eliâ€™s Bible-based insights and advice.
