"Atake sa Zamboanga", the Radio Mindanao Network (RMN) extensive 24hour coverage of the ongoing crisis in Zamboanga City went "viral" as other media outfits hook up to carry the program.
RMN Assistant Vice President Rey Bayoging announced that the full coverage of the Zamboanga City crisis that completed its 7th day yesterday, can now be heard over 900Khz AM, 96.3 FM, and be seen on channel 32 for Sky cable subscribers and channel 18 for Mindanao cable subscribers. Worldwide audience can also monitor the developing events at www.rmnzambo.tv. Zamboanga Today and Zamboanga Times newspapers are also in partnership with RMN in keeping the public informed on the ongoing crisis. As of press time, other FM stations are still on talks with RMN for a possible hook up of the live coverage.
RMN is the only AM station that is covering the event on a 24hour basis since Monday (Sept. 9), the day when Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) rebels under Nur Misuari attacked the city and took hostage over 200 persons.
The siege paralyzed business activities within the city proper, suspended work and classes, and closed the airport and seaport of the city. It also displaced over 60,000 individuals so far.
The crisis is entering its eight day today.
