Who We Are


The Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC-13) was originally incorporated as the Continental Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) under Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Registration No. 4118 dated May 11, 1970. The Articles of Incorporation was amended on September 30, 1974, renaming CBC to IBC-13, with the same set of stockholders and subscribers to its capital stock. The IBC-13 studios are located at Broadcast City, Capitol Hills, Diliman, Quezon City, while its transmitter is situated in San Francisco del Monte, Quezon City.

On March 1, 1986, Juan Ponce Enrile, then Minister of National Defense, ordered the sequestration of the Broadcast City television and radio stations, which included IBC-13, Radio Philippines Network and Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation, under Ministry Order No. A-003 based on the request of the then Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) Chairman, Jovito Salonga. Thereafter, then President of the Republic of the Philippines, Corazon C. Aquino, issued Executive Order (EO) No. 11 dated April 8, 1986, creating a Board of Administrators to manage and operate the business and affairs of the said stations and have custody of their funds and assets subject to the supervision and control of the PCGG. By virtue of a compromise agreement with the PCGG dated November 3, 1990, the Corporation was surrendered/ceded by Mr. Roberto S. Benedicto to the Republic of the Philippines.

In July 2000, Congress approved IBC-13’s 25-year franchise to operate and maintain radio and television broadcasting stations in the country. Under Section 2 of EO No. 576 dated November 7, 2006, the Corporation and other government communication agencies were placed under the supervision and control of the Director-General, Philippine Information Agency (PIA) under the Office of the President (OP).

IBC-13 presently operates under the control and supervision of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) in accordance with Section 4 of EO No. 4 dated July 30, 2010.

The primary purposes of the Corporation are to carry on the business as operators and/or proprietors of instruments and media of mass communication such as radio, television and/or telecommunication stations on a commercial and/or sustaining operation in any part of the Philippines, and to deal in the manufacture and distribution of radio, television and other electronic components and/or part thereof.

As of December 31, 2019, the Board of Directors was comprised of Mr. Jose B. Avellana, Jr., Chairman; Ms. Katherine Chloe S. de Castro, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO); Mr. Jose Rafael S. Hernandez; Mr. Jaime P. Alanis; Mr. Alexander L. Bangsoy and Mr. Arturo M. Alejandrino, Members; Ms. Marieta E. Nieto, Corporate Secretary.

To date, IBC-13 has only one TV station on air, the IBC-13 Manila.
