Draft:Chronicle Broadcasting Network

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


On September 24, 1956, brothers Eugenio Lopez, Sr. and former Vice President Fernando Lopez established the Chronicle Broadcasting Network (CBN, named after the Manila Chronicle newspaper which Eugenio owned at the time), which was initially focused on radio; they bought Alto Broadcasting System on February 24, 1957 (also reverting the corporate name to its previous one) and established another TV station (DZXL-TV 9) under the CBN brand in 1958. Broadcasts of selected shows in color began in 1966, a first for a Philippine television network, and on February 1, 1967, the company was renamed ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation.
