Broadcast City was a television and radio broadcast center owned by the Philippine government. It is located at Old Balara, Capitol Hills, Diliman, Quezon City. Broadcast City is the home of state-owned sequestered TV and radio network IBC; this is also the former home of the networks, BBC and RPN (until October 2012, now located at Panay Avenue). It was built in July 1978 and founded by Roberto Benedicto and it was the most modern broadcast facility at that time. IBC has discontinued the usage of Broadcast City in late 2018, and it is set to be demolished to give way for the Larossa Condominium project.[citation needed]
