HistoryEdit

On January 13, 2019, AksyonTV was rebranded into all-sports network 5 Plus.[1] With this move, Radyo Singko programs that were simulcast on AksyonTV moved to the then-unnamed channel. Meanwhile, 5 Plus, which took over DWNB-TV's terrestrial (analog) TV space, moved to Cignal channel 15. However, on January 17, 2019, just 4 days after the move, the Radyo Singko simulcast channel was reassigned from channel 6 to channel 1, temporarily replacing Cignal's community promotion channel. 5 Plus later took over channel 6, but remained simulcasting on channel 15 until February 17, 2019.

On February 18, 2019, the same standalone channel was soft-launched as One PH, reverting its Cignal channel assignment back to channel 6. Alongside this, Radyo Singko unveiled its new refurbished studios and new content were announced to be added to the program line-up of Radyo Singko and One PH.

On July 31, 2019, One PH, was formally launched by Cignal TV as a 24/7 all-Filipino news, public affairs and entertainment channel and are categorized into three (3) blocks: NewsKom (News Komentaryo/News Commentary) (newscasts and talk shows), KKK (Katarungan, Karapatan at Kaalaman/Justice, Rights and Knowledge) (public service and infotainment) and SnS (Showbiz and Sports).

In August 2019, selected Radyo Singko and One PH programs (Morning Calls, One Balita, One Balita Pilipinas, Wag Po! and Turbo Time with Mike and Lindy) begin its airing on either simulcast or delayed basis on TV5 as part of programming revamp spearheaded by TV5 Network's new CEO Jane Basas.

On March 8, 2020, One PH was given a slightly revamped look (along with One News and the rebranded One Sports and One Sports+) and reassigned to Cignal channel 1, replacing the community promotion channel, while One Sports (launched as a free-to-air channel replacing 5 Plus) was reassigned to channel 6.

On March 17, 2020, One PH along with One News, temporarily suspended its regular programming as an effect of the Luzon-wide "enhanced community quarantine" due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The news channel aired the special edition of One News Now.

On May 22, 2020, One PH starts test transmissions on digital terrestrial television via DWET-TV subchannel 5.3. This development signifies the reinstatement of Radyo5's "RadyoVision" format on free-to-air television after its predecessor, AksyonTV carried over most of the radio station's programs from 2011 to 2019.[2]

In December 2020, Cignal TV and Philstar Media Group took over the operations and programming of Radyo Singko respectively. With this development, some of the station's programs aired their respective final episodes during the final weeks of December 2020. On January 1, 2021, One PH's programming (except for overnight slots) have been integrated to the programming schedule of Radyo Singko.

On January 1, 2021, all programs of One PH are simulcast on One Sports via live streaming on its website, as well as Radyo Singko 92.3 News FM (except overnight slots). The livestream later reverted to One Sports a few days later.

ProgrammingEdit

Majority of its programming are sourced and simulcasted from Radyo5 92.3 News FM, a practice that was carried over from its predecessor AksyonTV, and following suit with other Mega Manila news radio stations (DZMM TeleRadyo, DZRH News Television, Inquirer 990 Television, Dobol B TV block on GTV and Radyo Bandido TV) and regional news radio stations (such as Brigada News TV in General Santos, DWNE TeleRadyo in Nueva Ecija, Tirad Pass Network in Ilocos Sur, and Bandera News TV in Palawan). The rest of its content are One PH's original content and brokered programming which are not aired, but since 2021, also simulcast on Radyo5 (except for overnight slots).
