Wish 107.5 received warm support from its followers across the globe on Twitter as the FM radio station celebrated the return of its first YouTube channel last July 9, Sunday.
Wish 107.5’s first YouTube channel which debuted in 2014, has more than 1.2 million subscribers, and counting.
The news of the channel’s much-awaited comeback prompted an outpour of greetings and congratulatory messages on Twitter, sending the hashtag #Wish1075YTisBack atop the nationwide trends list.
“A million more reasons why Wishers are very happy. Yes, #Wish1075YTisBack!! Million likes, million views and counting!,” Ireland-based netizen Cynthia Brul beamed with excitement.
“One of the best decisions ever made by YouTube is to bring back the Wish107.5 YT Channel to the world! Finally. #Wish1075YTisBack,” John Lester Villegas, a Twitter user from Pasig City, shared.
“Congratulations, @Wish1075! You truly deserve this. You have helped a lot of aspiring [young] artists & fans. We love you!,” another netizen with the username @SuperCzyan posted.
OPM artists and fandoms also joined last Sunday’s Twitter revelry.
For Gerardo Etorma III, Vice President for Radio of Breakthrough and Milestones Productions International (BMPI), the online buzz “only proves that the subscribers really missed” the station’s presence on YouTube.
BMPI is the driving force behind Wish 107.5’s content and production needs.
“We’re happy that we’re back on YouTube. Actually, it’s not only the [YouTube] channel that came back — but also the feeling of our one million subscribers being entertained every time they watch the WISHclusives. For many of our subscribers, watching WISHclusives has become a daily habit,” Mr. Etorma shared.
“Wishers can expect more new videos of their favorite artists like KZ Tandingan and Michael Pangilinan,” he added.
He also extended his gratitude to the station’s followers.
“To all the Wishers, thank you for always supporting Wish and our YouTube channel. Make sure to always tune in because you will be surprised with the new contents we are going to upload,” Mr. Etorma said.

From Radio to Web: Wish 107.5’s Phenomenal Rise
With its goal of ushering in new ways to enjoy and experience music, Wish 107.5 went beyond the confines of the conventional FM radio booth and tapped the power of technology and social media.
Since Wish 107.5’s launch in 2014, its YouTube channel has continually gained wide recognition for its frequently-viral WISHclusive videos that feature top-notch performances staged on board the Wish 107.5 Bus.
In 2016, the station’s official YouTube account was hailed as the country’s fastest-growing local channel, gaining a total of 439, 407 new subscribers for last year alone.
The YouTube channel’s global audience includes followers from as far as Brazil, Australia, Canada and the U.S.A.
Earlier in March, Wish 107.5 achieved another milestone as it became the first FM YouTube Channel in the Philippines to gain over one million subscribers.
Wish 107.5 is set to receive the “Most Outstanding Social Media Platform Usage” award from De La Salle Araneta University later this month for its intensified effort to promote good music via its online platforms, particularly its YouTube page.
