Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation (second era)



BBC-2 was rebranded as City 2 Television from 1980 to 1984, but reverted to BBC-2 with a different logo in its last years of broadcast. BBC-2 ended operations on March 20, 1986 at the height of the People Power Revolution along with RPN and IBC (temporarily), after reformist soldiers disabled the transmitter that was broadcasting Marcos' inauguration from Malacañang Palace. Upon Corazón C. Aquino's subsequent accession to the presidency, BBC, RPN and IBC (collectively known as "Broadcast City") were sequestered and placed under the management of a Board of Administrators tasked to operate and manage its business and affairs subject to the control and supervision of Presidential Commission on Good Government. DWWX-TV was returned to ABS-CBN on September 14, 1986, as were the Cebu and Bacolod affiliate stations.
