ABS-CBN Halalan 2013 Most Watched, Most Tweeted Election Coverage

Posted on May 16, 2013 | 6:21 PM

Most Filipinos nationwide got their latest election news from ABS-CBN on Monday (May 13) and went online to send their thoughts via Twitter that made ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage a trending topic on the social networking site.

Halalan 2013 anchors Kabayan Noli De castro, Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon

Based on Kantar Media data covering national urban and rural homes, ABS-CBN’s “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na Halalan 2013” coverage drew a cumulative average of national TV rating of 13.7% from 6 am to 12 midnight vs. GMA’s Eleksyon 2013’s 10%. 

ABS-CBN’s flagship newscast “TV Patrol,” anchored by Noli De Castro, Korina Sanchez, and Ted Failon, hit a 27% national TV rating or nine points higher than rival program “24 Oras” that only recorded 18.4%.

Filipino netizens also kept track of election news on Twitter where ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage became a trending topic. The hashtag #Halalan2013 was the only election coverage-based hashtag of a news organization to have landed among the social networking site’s trending topics.

ABS-CBN also highlighted the results in the hotly contested local races featured in its “KampanyaSerye” documentaries in areas like Manila, Masbate, Cavite, Cebu, Pampanga, Zamboanga, and Laguna to contextualize what the results mean to the electorate.

Aside from focusing on local election rivalries, ABS-CBN also delivered fresh updates on the results in overseas absentee voting through its international news bureaus stationed all around the world.

With the help of about half a million Bayan Patrollers and 221 reporters in the Philippines and key global cities scattered in 45 live points, ABS-CBN was not only able to deliver the most comprehensive news coverage on the elections but also report election irregularities in different localities through its different media platforms. It also had the most credible and authoritative analysts dissecting the issues and results on “Halalan 2013.”

“Halalan 2013” also marked the uninterrupted 48-hour election coverage for ANC and DZMM TeleRadyo for both cable TV and AM radio audiences. ABS-CBNNews.com provided the latest news, analysis of results, and as well as a social media tracker, launched in partnership with IBM Philippines, to monitor the social media buzz on the positive and negative commentaries and conversations about the candidates.

ABS-CBN also empowered citizens with its Comelec-Halalan 2013 mobile app for smartphones and tablets that helped them find their precinct on election day, provided a list and profiles of candidates and partylists, as well as the latest aggragated, partial and unofficial election results in national and local polls.

Also featured in ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage were the celebrity patrollers for “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na” including Bianca Gonzalez, Valerie Concepcion, Melai Cantiveros, the Philippine Azkals’ Chieffy Caligdong, John Lapus, Sam Concepcion, and Jed Madela, who received inquiries and concerns on the elections via their personal Twitter accounts.

Moreover, ABS-CBN set up BMPM stations in key areas in the country to assist voters in finding their precincts, receive complaints and reports regarding the polls, and respond to medical emergencies.

ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage was launched a year before the May elections to provide information to voters so they can make informed choices based on their vision for the country.

ABS-CBN Leads Halalan 2013 Coverage

Posted on May 9, 2013 | 9:40 PM

ABS-CBN, the country’s largest broadcast news organization, will provide 360-degree news coverage on different media platforms and deliver public service on-ground on Monday (May 13) when millions of Filipinos troop to polling precincts to cast their votes and choose their next batch of leaders.

ABS-CBN Halalan 2013 Anchors
“It has become a company tradition for ABS-CBN to devote all of its resources to this important coverage. Technology has become more sophisticated through the years and we have utilized different tools in support of the coverage itself, but what hasn’t changed is our commitment to cover this political exercise and present all aspects of the polls as completely as possible,” said Ging Reyes, head of the ABS-CBN Integrated News and Current Affairs.

Viewers can rely on ABS-CBN to give them real-time updates from its team of seasoned broadcast journalists ‘Kabayan’ Noli De Castro, Korina Sanchez, Ted Failon, Ces Drilon, Karen Davila, Julius Babao, Lynda Jumilla, Tony Velasquez, Anthony Taberna, Bernadette Sembrano, Pinky Webb, and Prof. Randy David who will deliver up-to-date news stories, vote count, and in-depth analyses of reports from over 30 live points in the country from 5 AM on Monday (May 13) to noon on Tuesday (May 14).

ABS-CBN will also utilize augmented reality to help viewers understand reports better and an interactive map that will monitor the latest results and candidate information in key areas.

Aside from giving groundbreaking news coverage, ABS-CBN will also put up “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo” stations all over the country where voters can ask information about their precincts and other poll-related concerns. The BMPM team will then link them to the authorized government agencies and groups.

Moreover, the BMPM stations will serve as centers where voters in the area can file reports about election irregularities and problems and will have first aid personnel and equipment on stand-by to respond to medical emergencies.

This public service effort anchors on the influence of BMPM and its half a million Bayan Patrollers who are prepared to share election-related information from their areas to ensure honest and peaceful elections. 

“Citizen engagement and the movement for change are a constant. Both of them go on even without an election. That’s how dedicated we are to the idea of citizen involvement and that is the reason we start really early,” said Reyes, emphasizing why ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage and “BMPM Tayo Na” movement were launched a year before the May 13 polls.

ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage is also defined by its “KampanyaSerye” documentaries, which made voters more involved and informed on some of the hotly contested local races, and the “Harapan 2013” live debates that gave all senatorial candidates a platform to present what they stand for.

“KampanyaSerye” will swing into high gear on May 13, as ABS-CBN reporters reexamine the electoral rivalries featured in the series and highlight the results in areas like Manila, Masbate, Cavite, Cebu, among others. This aims to contextualize what the results mean to the electorate by putting the spotlight on the newly elected candidates to remind them of the promises they made during the campaign season.

ABS-CBN’s “Halalan 2013” coverage was launched a year before the May elections to provide information to voters so they can make informed choices based on their vision for the country.

Working hand in hand with ABS-CBN in this historic “Halalan 2013” coverage are the Commission on Elections, Department of Foreign Affairs Overseas Absentee Voting Secretariat, Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting, Pulse Asia Inc., and Regional Emergency Assistance Communications System (REACT) Philippines, corporate sponsors Globe Telecom, STI College, Universal Motors Corporation, and MyPhone’s Solid Group, Inc. “Halalan 2013” also tapped The Philippine Star, Business World, Manila Bulletin, and Business Mirror as its print partners and Fully Abled Nation, Management Association of the Philippines, YouthVote Philippines, and Alternative Law Groups as its cause partners. Also joining ABS-CBN’s campaign for clean elections are educational institutions such as the University of the Philippines system, La Consolacion College, University of Sto. Tomas, Ateneo School of Government, and La Salle Institute of Governance.

PNOY's Speech at the 25th Anniversary of TV Patrol (July 27, 2012)

Posted on July 28, 2012 | 10:37 AM

President Benigno S. Aquino III graced the 25th (Silver) Anniversary of TV Patrol on July 27, 2012. His speech on the said event created buzz because of criticizing TV Patrol anchor Kabayan Noli De Castro (watch the full video here).

Here is the full transcript of PNOY's speech at the TV Patrol 25th anniversary:

Kagalang-galang Benigno S. Aquino III 
Pangulo ng Pilipinas 
Sa ika-25 anibersaryo ng TV Patrol

 [Inihayag sa Manila Hotel noong ika-27 ng Hulyo 2012]

Mr. Gabby Lopez; Mrs. Charo Santos-Concio; Ms. Ging Reyes; Senator Frank Drilon; Senator Loren Legarda; Secretaries Mar Roxas, Greg Domingo, Ricky Carandang; Chairman Francis Tolentino; Bangko Sentral Governor Sy Tetangco; Mayor Alfredo Lim; Representative Sonny Angara; Commissioner Ruffy Biazon; Commissioner Kim Henares; Chair Sixto Brillantes; past and present officials and staff of TV Patrol and ABS-CBN; fellow workers in government; honored guests; mga minamahal ko pong kababayan:

Magandang gabi po sa inyong lahat.

Dito po magkakaaminan: Noon pong kabataan ko, wala pang ANC, wala pang CNN, at aaminin ko po, sa totoo lang, wala pang cable TV. Kung kailangan mo ng instant news, halimbawa, kapag may bagyo, nawalan ng kuryente, ang tutok namin noong mga panahong iyon: Radyo Patrol. Sa pag-usad ng panahon, mas naging moderno ang pagbabalita; ang tinig na rumoronda sa himpapawid, nadadagdagan ng biswal na elemento. At narito na po tayo ngayon, ipinagdiriwang ang Silver Anniversary ng isa sa mga pinakamatibay na institusyon sa pagbabalita: Ang TV Patrol.

Sa loob ng dalawampu’t limang taon, kinilala ang TV Patrol sa tapang at sigasig ng paghahatid ng impormasyon sa mamamayang Pilipino. Sa tuwing may sakuna, naroon kayo upang magbigay ng kaalaman kung paano umiwas sa peligro at disgrasya. Sa tuwing may agam-agam ang publiko ukol sa isyu, kayo ang takbuhan para sa tapat na pag-uulat. Kaya naman, sa lahat ng bumubuo ng inyong programa, mula noon hanggang ngayon, sa harap man o sa likod ng kamera: talaga namang pong isang mainit na pagbati sa inyong ikadalawampu’t limang anibersaryo. [Applause]

Kapag katotohanan ang pinag-uusapan, lagi kong naaalala ang isang sikat na police drama noong ako po’y bata pa. Dragnet ang pangalan po ng programa. At sa pagkalap ng kaalaman, ang bukambibig noong isang bida, and I quote, “Just the facts, Ma’am.”

Hayaan po ninyo akong ilatag ang ilang facts na inihayag natin sa SONA noong Lunes:

Five point two million sa pinakamahirap na kabahayang Pilipino ang buong-buo at walang-bayad nang makikinabang sa benepisyo ng PhilHealth. Fact po ito.

Bago matapos ang susunod na taon, ubos na ang minana nating 66,800 na kakulangan sa silid-aralan. Fact na naman po ito.

Tinitiyak na po ang kalidad ng higit sa 70,000 na mga baril na ipagkakaloob sa natitirang 45 porsyento ng ating kapulisan. Matapos po ang prosesong ito, magkakaroon na tayo ng one-is-to-one ratio ng pulis at sa armas na kailangan po nila sa kanilang trabaho. Fact din po ito.

Ilan lang po ito sa mga pagbabagong tinatamasa ngayon, at nakamit po natin ito sa unang dalawang taon pa lamang ng ating pamamahala. Nang mag-umpisa tayo bilang Pangulo, ni wala po tayong masipat na “light at the end of the tunnel.” Ni hindi nga po kami sigurado kung may dulo pa ang balon ng problemang ipinamana sa atin. Wala naman po sigurong magkakaila: Napakalaki na ng ipinagbago ng ating bansa. At palagay ko po naman, fact din po iyan sa ating lahat. [Applause]

Huwag po sana ninyong mamasamain, tutal kaharap ko na po kayo ngayon, at one night lang naman sa 365 days ng isang taon ko kayo makakausap. Tingnan po natin ang paghahayag ng inyong institusyon.

Noong Oktubre ng nakaraang taon, may isang reporter kayo ang nagbabalita sa NAIA 3. Ang sabi niya, sa puntong iyon, tumaas ng dalawampung porsiyento ang passenger arrivals sa paliparan. Magandang balita, at higit sa lahat, fact po iyan.  Sa kabila nito, nakuha pa pong humirit ng isang anchor n’yo at ang sabi po niya, and I quote,  “Nasa NAIA 3 ka kasi; kung nasa NAIA 1 ka, doon malala.” Sa loob-loob ko po, anong kinalaman ng ibinabalita sa NAIA 3 sa NAIA 1? May nagsabi po bang ayos na ayos na ang NAIA 1? Kung mayroon man ho, hindi kami. Nakaligtaan niya atang mahigit 30 anyos na ang istrukturang ito.

Napapaisip nga po ako: ‘yung nagkomento nito, hindi ba’t anim na taon ding tumangan sa renda ng gobyerno? Sabihin na po nating minana lang din nila ang problema; ‘di hamak mas luma naman ang ipinamana nilang problema sa amin. Anim na taon ang ipinagkaloob sa kanya para tumulong sa pagsasaayos ng mismong inirereklamo niya. Pero ngayon, tayo na nga ang may bitbit na problema, tayo na nga ang tutugon dito, pero, masakit nga ho, may gana pa tayong hiritan ng nagpamana?

Naalala ko rin po nang na-recover ng NBI ang isang banyagang bata na nakidnap. Ang ganda na po sana: Nakakuha ng tip ang awtoridad, kumilos sila, at na-recover ang bata. Masaya ang mga magulang na kapiling na muli nila ang kanilang anak; masaya ang bata na kayakap niya ang kaniyang ama’t ina; masaya ang awtoridad na maayos at matagumpay ang operasyon nila. Mukhang ang hindi lang masaya, ito nga pong anchor natin na nagawa pa uling humirit na baka raw na-set-up lang raw ang rescue operation, at binayaran lang talaga ang ransom. Kahit anong pilit ng reporter na malinaw ang operasyon; nag-surveillance ang mga taga-NBI, at talagang natiyempuhan nilang walang nakabantay sa bata, pilit pa rin po nang pilit ang anchor. Sabi nga ho ng nanonood kong kasama, “Naman.” Kami pa po mismo ang magagalak kung makakapaghain kayo ng kapirasong ebidensya ukol dito, at kung mayroon nagkamali, usigin natin ang mga nagkamali.

May naitutulong po ba ang mga walang-basehang spekulasyon, lalo na kung lumalabas ka sa telebisyon at sinusubaybayan ng sambayanan? Kung nagbabangkaan lang tayo sa kanto, hindi problema ang mga walang-basehang patutsada. Pero kung alam mong opinion-maker ka, alam mo rin dapat na mayroon kang responsibilidad. Sana po, sa tuwing sasabihin nating, and I quote, “magandang gabi, bayan,” ay totoong hinahangad nating maging maganda ang gabi ng bayan.

May isa pa po: Ang pagtaas-baba po kasi ng pamasahe, dumadaan sa mahabang proseso. Minabuti po nating makipag-ugnayan sa transport groups, sa pangunguna po ni Secretary Mar Roxas, upang bumuo ng kasunduang makatuwiran. Dahil sa kaguluhan sa Gitnang Silangan, malaki ang naging gastusin ng mga tsuper sa pataas na pataas na presyo ng krudo, kaya oras na umabot ang diesel sa napagkasunduang presyo, ibibigay sa kanila ang kanilang fare hike para matulungan naman. Ngunit sang-ayon sila na kapag bumalik ang presyo’t bumaba rin ang presyo ng krudo, magkukusa rin silang ibaba ang pamasahe. Ika nila, imbes na sumobra ang tubo, bilang Pilipino ay magmamalasakit kami sa kapwa Pilipino.

Ibinalita po ito ng field reporter ninyo. Good news po talaga: Ang risonableng mungkahi, napagbigyan; ang pamahalaan, grupo ng tsuper, nagtulungan. Panalo ang sambayanan. Ang problema, nagawa pa rin itong sundutan ng komentaryo. Matapos i-report, ang pambungad na tanong ng inyong anchor: Ano raw ba ang angal ng mga grupo sa akin po. Ang reaksyon ko, “Saan naman nanggaling ‘yun?”

Nagkasundo-sundo na tayong tugunan ang isang problema, mayroon pang naghahanap ng angal.

Nagkakasundo na nga, para bang gusto pa ring pag-awayin. Mahirap pong isipin na bahagi ito ng inyong job description. ‘Di po ba kung umangat ang ating kalagayan, tayo ang panalo; at kung lumubog naman ito, tayo rin naman ang talo? Bakit parang mas gusto ng iba na makita tayong lumulubog?

Kung gabi-gabing bad news ang hapunan ni Juan dela Cruz, talaga namang mangangayayat ang puso’t isip niya sa kawalan ng pag-asa. Mayroon po kayong The Filipino Channel, kung saan napapanood ng mga dayuhan at ng ating mga kababayan sa ibayong dagat ang mga balita sa Pilipinas. Isipin po natin: bawat isang turistang bumibisita sa bansa tinatayang isang trabaho ang naglilikha. Ilang turista kaya kada buwan ang nagka-cancel ng bakasyon dahil sa araw-araw na negatibismo? Ilan kayang kababayan ang nawawalan ng pagkakataong magkaroon ng kabuhayan dahil sa bad news na ito? Kung isa po kayo sa sampung milyon nating kababayan na nagsasakripisyo sa ibayong-dagat, gaganahan kaya kayong bumalik dito kung mas nakakasindak pa sa Shake, Rattle, and Roll ang balita sa telebisyon? Kailan pa po ba naging masama ang pagpapahayag ng mabuting balita?

Sa pagpapatrol ninyo sa bawat sulok ng bansa, tiyak na may nadaratnan kayong mga positibong kuwentong maaaring maging bukal ng inspirasyon at pag-asa sa ating mga kababayan. Hindi naman po siguro masusunog ang mga TV sets at radyo ng inyong mga suki kung paminsan-minsan ito ang inyong ibalita. Hindi naman po siguro kalabisang isipin na sa pagtaas ng iniluluwas nating coco water na mahigit 3,300 porsiyento ang inangat, may mahahagilap kayong isang magsasaka na magsasabing, “Dati, itinatapon lang ito. Ngayon napapagkakitaan na namin.” Sa mahigit tatlong milyong pamilyang benepisyaryo ngayon ng Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program, hindi naman po siguro mahirap maghanap ng isang magsasabing, “Malaking tulong ang programang ito.”

Alalahanin po natin: Anumang sinasabi n’yo ay nakakaapekto sa pananaw ng Pilipino—humuhubog sa kanyang mga kilos, sa pagtingin niya sa kanyang sarili, sa kapwa, at sa bayan. Kapag pinaniwala si Juan na panay pangit ang nangyayari sa lipunan, talagang mawawalan siya ng dahilan para tumungo sa katuparan ng mga adhikain niya. Pero kung nakikita niyang ang dating problema ay nasusulusyonan, mag-aalab ang pag-asa, at magkakakompiyansa siyang sumulong dahil alam niyang may pagbabago na.

Marami pa ba tayong problemang kailangang tugunan, at hindi po magiging madaling lampasan ang mga ito, lalo na kung kaliwa’t kanan ang hilaw na kuru-kuro at spekulasyon. Sa akin na po mismo manggagaling: Marami pa ring butas ang dinatnan nating sistema at hindi perpekto ang gobyerno, kaya’t kung may pagkukulang kami, ipaalam lang po ninyo. Parati ko pong ipinapaalala, sa ilang samahan na baka tumataas ang ere: nag-uumpisa ang kaalaman sa pag-amin na hindi lahat ng kaalaman ay nasa akin. Ako na mismo ang aamin: wala kaming monopolyo sa husay at talino, at hindi kami tama sa lahat ng sandali. Subalit hindi malulunasan ang mga problema kung sa bawat isang hakbang pasulong natin, puro paatras naman ang hila ng ilang gusto tayong ibalik sa dilim ng ating dinatnan.

Kung may paligsahan nga po sa pag-unawa’t pagtitimpi, malamang naman po gold medalist na po tayo diyan. Bahagi po kasi ito ng trabaho natin. Bahagi rin nito ang magsabi ng totoo, at sa gabing ito, inilahad ko lamang po ang katotohanang nakikita ko.

Hindi ko hinihiling na kumatha kayo ng mga gawa-gawang kuwento, o pagandahin ang imahen ng gobyerno. Ang akin lang po, kung naibabalita ang mga nagaganap na krimen at trahedya, ibalita rin naman po natin sana kung paano ito naresolba. Kung inilalantad po natin ang kabulastugan; matuto naman din po sana tayong kilalanin ang mga nagagawang kabutihan. At kung may maimumungkahi kayo para lalo nating mapagbuti ang pagsisilbi sa bayan, kami po ay makikinig. Ibalanse lamang natin; tandaan na natin sa bawat sulat, sa bawat ulat, ay nag-iiwan kayo ng marka sa publiko; nakakaapekto kayo sa buhay ng kapwa Pilipino. Ang pagkiling sa negatibismo ay mag-aatras lamang sa dapat sana’y pag-usad na ng ating bayan at mga kapwa Pilipino.

Patuloy po tayong magsumikap upang iangat ang antas ng propesyunalismo, integridad, at kredibilidad sa larangan ng paglilingkod-bayan; patuloy nating isabuhay, bantayan at patingkarin ang ating demokrasya. Bilang isang lahing Pilipino, sama-sama nating isatinig at ihayag ang ating paninindigan: nandito na ang Pilipinas, tinatamasa na ng Pilipino ang pagbabagong siya rin mismo ang gumawa.

Muli, at ako po’y pagpasensyahan ninyo kung masyadong prangka nagsalita ngayong gabi. Maganda na ho siguro ‘yung totoo ang sabihin para magkaunawan tayo nang maliwanang. Muli po, binabati ko ang TV Patrol sa inyong ika-25 kaarawan. Maraming, maraming salamat po sa inyong paglilingkod sa bayan at more power po. Magandang gabi po. [Applause]

Video: PNOY Slams Kabayan Noli De Castro in TV Patrol Silver Anniversary Party Speech

President Benigno S. Aquino III slammed former Vice President and TV Patrol anchor Kabayan Noli De Castro during his speech at the 25th Anniversary Party of TV Patrol held July 27 at the Manila Hotel.

In his speech, PNOY criticized Noli De Castro for supposed baseless speculation and commentaries against the administration despite his 6 years stint in the government. Although the president did not mention any name, reading between the lines will suffice for anyone to conclude that it was Kabayan, being an ex-government official. 

President BenignO S. Aquino III slams Kabayan Noli De Castro at the TV Patrol 25th Anniversary Party
PNOY said that in an October 2011 story on TV Patrol, a reporter talked about a 20% increase in passenger arrivals at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3. The President said that Noli De Castro (without naming him) then retorted, “Nasa NAIA 3 ka kasi. Kung nasa NAIA 1 ka, doon malala.” 

"Napaisip nga po ako. ‘Yung nagkomento nito, hindi ba’t anim na taon ding tumangan sa renda ng gobyerno? Sabihin na po nating minana lang din nila ang problema; ‘di hamak mas luma naman ang ipinamana nilang problema sa amin."

“Anim na taon ang ipinagkaloob sa kanya para tumulong sa pagsasaayos ng mismong inireklamo niya. Pero ngayon, tayo na nga ang may bitbit na problema, tayo na nga ang tutugon dito, pero masakit nga ho, may gana pang hiritan ng nagpamana?”

PNOY also used Kabayan Noli De Castro's signature line:

"May naitutulong po ba ang mga walang-basehang spekulasyon? Kung alam mong opinion-maker ka, alam mo rin dapat na mayroon kang responsibilidad. Sana po, sa tuwing sasabihin nating, and I quote, ‘magandang gabi, bayan,’ ay totoong hinahangad nating maganda ang gabi ng bayan.’"

The President on his speech called for a balanced media reporting and stop what he called as 'daily negativism' which make our news programs somewhat like a horror film series. PNOY ended his speech by asking for understanding for his being frank that night.

TV Patrol Celebrates 25th Anniversary With A Special Documentary

Posted on July 27, 2012 | 8:49 PM

ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs marks the 25th anniversary of “TV Patrol” with a special documentary that highlights its vibrant history and evolution and confronts the controversial issues the country’s number one television newscast has had to face.

TV Patrol 25 anchors Kabayan Noli De Castro, Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon

Titled “Mga Nagbabagang Balita: 25 Taon ng TV Patrol,” the documentary will revisit the newscast’s creation and the memorable stories that defined the program and helped shape Philippine contemporary history to be shown on Sunday (July 29) on ABS-CBN.

Speaking for the documentary, ABS-CBN chairman and CEO Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III shared how the pioneering news program made a difference on TV news broadcasting and how it became a daily viewing habit by millions of Filipinos in the country. He said it posted “unusually” high ratings compared to any program shown after its timeslot when it was launched.

“Originally, the common thinking was, it was the primetime entertainment programs that generated the most significant revenues. In the case of ‘TV Patrol,’ it was the highest rating and highest grossing program in its early years,” said Lopez.

And years since, it has remained as the country’s undisputed, number one newscast in the country. “TV Patrol” is still the most-watched newscast with a national TV rating of 31.8%, or almost twice higher than rival “24 Oras” with 17.6%, based on the June 2012 data from Kantar Media.

Ging Reyes, head of ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs, also stressed how the newscast has become part of Filipino’s everyday lives and Pinoy pop culture. “People are afraid to be reported on TV doing unlawful activities. ‘O, baka ma-TV Patrol ka.’ ‘Naku, ayokong ma-TV Patrol!’ That’s the biggest mark it has left on us as a nation,” she said.

Being a part of the program has also compelled Noli ‘Kabayan’ de Castro, who anchors “TV Patrol” with Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon, to go out in the field and look for his own stories instead of just reporting them from the studio.

“I don’t want to be called a news reader. I am a newscaster. I want to know what’s happening and I know when something is important enough to share with the viewers. I get to know what people want. That’s what happens in ‘TV Patrol,’” he said.

The documentary will also revisit some of the biggest news stories the past 25 years such as the 1990 earthquake, Mt. Pinatubo eruption, coup attempts, etc.

“Mga Nagbabagang Balita: 25 Taon ng TV Patrol” is part of TV Patrol’s silver anniversary celebration, which also included the “TV Patrol Grand Reunion,” “TV Patrol Balitandaan,” and a fund-raising venture called “Beinte Singko Para sa Kabayan Ko.”

Don’t miss “ Mga Nagbabagang Balita: 25 Taon ng TV Patrol” this Sunday (July 29) after “Gandang Gabi Vice” on ABS-CBN Sunday’s Best.

DZMM's Kabayan is Only Philippine Finalist at the 2012 New York Festivals (Radio)

Posted on May 18, 2012 | 8:41 PM

DZMM’s public affairs program “Kabayan” anchored by multi-awarded broadcast journalist ‘Kabayan’ Noli de Castro was named as a finalist at the prestigious 2012 New York Festivals (NYF) World’s Best Radio Programs.

“Kabayan” was distinguished in the Best Public Affairs Program category and the lone Philippine radio program to succeed in the international competition.

According to Nanette Baler-Quong, the program’s executive producer, the NYF recognized the episodes where Kabayan extended aid to overseas Filipino workers (OFW) caught in the war in Syria last January.

She said “Kabayan” served as the link between the Department of Foreign Affairs and OFWs living in different parts of Syria, including OFW Gande Das whom Kabayan would talk to on air everyday to calm her down after she threatened to jump off her employer’s building so she could escape and come back to the Philippines. The Philippine embassy in Damascus had already repatriated Das and other OFWs.

“Kabayan” is aired on Radyo Patrol 630 and DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable ch 26) on weekdays at 6:00 AM.

TV Patrol Celebrates 25th Silver Anniversary on March 5

Posted on March 2, 2012 | 8:41 PM

TV Patrol, the country's longest-running Filipino primetime TV newscast, is celebrating its 25 years of patrolling the nation to deliver the biggest news and latest happenings while empowering citizens to become actively involved in nation-building.

'Kayaban' Noli De Castro, Korina Sanchez, and Ted Failon, the most experienced and credible team of broadcast journalists in the country, will present a special silver anniversary episode on Monday (March 5) and launch the "TV Patrol Balitandaan," which will mount 25 mini-monuments, each to be revealed every week, in landmarks where the 25 biggest news events in the last 25 years happened.

TV Patrol will also undertake a venture called "Beinte Singko Para sa Kabayan Ko," which will encourage Filipinos to drop in 25 cents in customized TV Patrol cans to be distributed in 25 provinces all over the country. The fundraising target amount of P2.5 million will be given to selected beneficiaries.

Through the program's commemorative activities, TV Patrol seeks to engage Filipinos towards a common goal and bolsters their role as 'patrollers' that exhibit concern and service for the nation.

In 1987, the trailblazing TV Patrol revolutionized the way Philippine TV networks produce their primetime newscasts when it introduced a novel, mass-oriented format that appealed to Filipinos' craving for news reports and information when democracy was restored.

Its first 25 years saw a string of groundbreaking firsts for TV media - it became the first news program to deliver news on weekends and the first to be available online via livestreaming--innovative steps to deliver relevant and timely news and cater to more Filipinos in the country and around the world. More notably, TV Patrol has redefined the concept of citizen empowerment by encouraging Filipinos to be active and vigilant.

ABS-CBN's award-winning breakthrough election campaign "Boto Mo, iPatrol Mo" (BMPM) called on citizens to report irregularities, election violations, and emergencies via text message, MMS, and e-mail before and during the 2007 and 2010 national elections. And it was through ABS-CBN's citizen journalism campaign that the Maguindanao massacre was exposed. The first report on the Maguindanao massacre was sent by a BMPM patroller, who sent the first picture taken from the site.

BMPM, which was born from the "Citizen Patrol" segment of TV Patrol, empowered citizens to become agents of change by providing them airtime and allowing them to report on pressing problems in their own barangays and cities. Through the efforts of the BMPM Patrollers and ABS-CBN reporters and anchors, the TV network was named the most credible news source covering the elections according to a Pulse Asia survey in February 2010. 

The team of De Castro, Sanchez, and Failon topped the 2011 survey in the National Capital Region by StratPolls Inc. as the most credible news team on Philippine television.

The 25th anniversary episode of TV Patrol will air on Monday (March 5, 2012). Watch out for a special documentary marking the silver anniversary of TV Patrol airing soon on ABS-CBN.
