Test Broadcast Concerts
The BMPI handled Test Broadcast, an advocacy concert that gathers radio and TV broadcasters in the Philippines to pay tribute to journalists and broadcasters who were killed in spite of so-called freedom of expression and press freedom. The event, held at the Araneta Coliseum on November 13, 2006, was titled “Test Broadcast: A Cry for Freedom.”
Test Broadcast was organized by PBC-UNTV 37, Rotary Club of Intramuros, KBP-Metro Manila Chapter in cooperation with the National Press Club (NPC).
As a tribute and benefit concert, Test Broadcast was created to honor veteran broadcasters on television and on radio who have continuously served the public for more than 40 years now. The concert was also aimed at raising funds for the bereaved families of slain reporters, editors, announcers and other media people.
The BMPI handled campaigns, promotions, advertising, public relations and productions. The result was one of the most successful concert events held at the 20,000-seater Araneta Coliseum.
