MANILA, Philippines — A state university in Quezon province has been granted a radio and television franchise for 25 years.

President Duterte signed Republic Act 11680 or the Act Granting Southern Luzon State University (SLSU) a franchise to construct, install, establish, operate and maintain radio and television broadcasting stations within its campus for educational and other related purposes.

”The franchise to operate radio and television stations serves to broaden the SLSU’s coverage and capacities as an effective instrument in information dissemination geared largely to promote community development and facilitate better public service,” Quezon fourth district Rep. Angelina Tan, one of the principal authors of the measure, said. ”The law will enable the SLSU to heighten its response to the need to deliver educational services amid the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Under the law, the SLSU is mandated to provide adequate public service time to enable the government to inform the public on important public issues as well as provide sound and balanced programming and assist in the function of public information and education.
