When Kool 106 first went on-air on February 21, 1992 (together with ABC 5) with radio veteran George Mercado at the helm, its format was Hot Adult Contemporary, showcasing music from the 70s and 80s, alongside Top 40 hits back then. In 1995, when Marc Gorospe assumed the Station Manager post, Kool 106 flipped into a mainstream format playing mostly pop hits. Between March 1999 to April 2001
In April 2002, Kool 106 resurrected as a Masa station with its format playing mainstream pop and OPM music. During the relaunch, Kool 106 and ABC-5 teamed up to produce a 30-minute interactive music show called "Kool on Kam", originally aired as a hookup with Kool 106 where the jocks can now be seen on TV with music videos. Kool on Kam moved to a primetime slot and increased to 1 hour without the radio hookup where the jocks interviews with its featured celebrity of the week and the show launched its segments. Kool on Kam lasted for a year and a half. The station also has its first ever countdown separated where the top 10 OPM songs and top 10 foreign songs are aired at noontime and 6pm respectively on Sundays. Kool 106 has also developed its "By Request" program aired weekdays 9pm-12mn and Sundays where listeners can call and ask for their requested song. Kool 106 as a masa station lasted for 2 years.

After PLDT's media subsidiary MediaQuest Holdings, Inc. acquired TV5 from the Cojuangco family and Malaysia-based broadcaster Media Prima Berhad in 2010, Dream FM and its affiliate stations in other parts of the country remained under the Cojuangco management led by former ABC stockholder Anton Lagdameo.

DWFM (Radyo5 92.3 News FM)
On November 8, 2010, DWFM flipped from CHR to all-news radio as Radyo5 92.3 News FM; becoming the flagship station for a new radio network operated in conjunction with the news department of TV5 (which PLDT media subsidiary MediaQuest recently acquired a majority stake of in earlier in the year). At that time the station's studios moved again from Silver City Mall in Pasig City to TV5 Studio Complex in Novaliches, Quezon City. The move came as part of a plan to expand TV5's news operation in order to become more competitive with the other major networks, which also included the launch of a news network on NBC's television stations, AksyonTV (which also simulcasts some of its programming). Most of the personalities are former anchors and reporters from different AM-radio stations in Mega Manila including Neil Ocampo, Laila Chikadora, Cheryl Cosim, Cristy Fermin (from DZMM), Raffy Tulfo, Nina Taduran, Ruel Otieco, JV Arcena (from DZXL), Arnell Ignacio, Shalala (from DZBB), Izza Reneva-Cruz, Zony Esguerra (from DZME).
In less than six months under the new format, Radyo5 ranked as the fourth most listened to FM stations in Metro Manila. In March 2012, the Radio Research Council ranked Radyo5 as the number 1 news radio station in the market in a survey of motorists. Afterwards, in 2013, Radyo5 declared again by PSRC Car Coincidental Survey as the most preferred & listened FM station for public utility vehicles including Jeepney's, taxis and FX.
On December 23, 2013, Radyo5 studios (including News5) was moved from TV5 Studio Complex in Novaliches, Quezon City to their new home at TV5 Media Center in Reliance, Mandaluyong.
