Papa Jackson remains everyone’s favorite radio DJ at 2020 RAWR Awards

This, even after leaving his home for 9 years: 90.7 Love Radio.

He’s been in the radio industry for over a decade. He has brought us not only some of the greatest hits on radio but some of the best advice on life and love.

Papa Jackson, or John Gemperle in real life, has been one of Philippine radio’s best gifts. With his soothing voice and sagely advice on seemingly all things under the sun, the man once known as Papa Jack (still hard to let go of the name, even after 3 years) is still loved by avid listeners.

He’s gone from being a simple radio show host to now being the station manager for 106.7 Energy FM. How? By increasing the station’s listeners.

His longest endearing factor, however, is how he looks at life and the nuggets of wisdom he gives out on air—all for free.

He’s helped some of us go through our life’s toughest situations, and it shows. He’s been loved by the public for many years, and has earned Favorite DJ awards throughout his career.

He’s also been a part of the academe at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, helping mold future communicators through his experience as a radio DJ.

Papa Jackson’s impact can be felt not just by listening to his shows, but to the station he now leads: 106.7 Energy FM.

With talented voices like Papa Jackson, Gandang Kara, Rico Baby, Lindsay, and Sheena and Jimbo, 106.7 Energy FM brightens up everyone’s day not just with the music they play but with the wit and banter their DJs have.

And of course, who could forget that viral voice that you seemingly hear everywhere you go shouting ‘Wag mong sabihing radyo. Sabihin mo, ENERGY!

Cheers to you, Papa Jackson, our now two-time Favorite Radio DJ, and to your station, 106.7 Energy FM for being our Radio Station of the Year.
