DZBB was established on March 1, 1950 by Robert "Uncle Bob" La Rue Stewart, in a small office space in Calvo Building, Escolta, Manila with mostly second-hand equipment and an old and surplus radio transmitter. Despite of lack of new broadcasting facilities, the station has scored many milestones with its news, senate and congress coverage, breaking news, exclusives, and blow-by-blow accounts of major national events. It also pioneered on trendsetting shows such as Camay Theater of the Air, Tawag ng Tanghalan, Newscoop, Kwentong Kutsero and others. Some of these shows eventually went to television. DZBB was also the first to air live coverages extended not just to news and public affairs, but also to entertainment and educational programs, in 1957, DZBB moved to the new home at EDSA, Quezon City.
Due to the success of DZBB, Bob Stewart ventured to television on October 29, 1961 as DZBB-TV Channel 7 with the branding RBS-7 (Now known today as GMA-7 Manila).
