    "stay tuned" means "stay tuned to this TV or radio station. Don't touch that dial. Don't change the channel."

    I signifies that the broadcasting agency expects to have more information shortly, so you don't need to channel surf to find more.

    Figuratively, a person might say it about himself, indicating that he will have more information shortly. It's kind of joking when a person says it.

    1) The date for the trip to Macau may change, stayed tuned.
    > This is a run-on sentence, a comma splice joining two separate sentences instead of a period (or semicolon or conjunction)
    - The date for the trip to Macau may change. Stay tuned.

    2) There are some more information about this topic, stayed tuned.
    > Also a run-on sentence
    > "Information" is construed as singular
    - There is more information about this topic, so stay tuned.

    3) Stayed tuned in the upcoming changes in the situation / decision.
    > This is a fragment.
    - Stay tuned for (more news about any) upcoming changes in the situation / decision.
