MANILA, Philippines - ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs launches an all-new weekday current affairs program in a revolutionary move to make public service more accessible to Filipino audiences.
Beginning today at 4:45, ABS-CBN’s broadcast journalists will tackle real-life accounts of Filipinos and help in solving problems that affect their communities and families in Pinoy True Stories.
“The program will hunt and punish the offender, help victims and teach a lesson or two. Through ABS-CBN’s decision to place the new current affairs show on an earlier timeslot, we hope to make citizens better-informed, engage more viewers and foster a dialogue of significant issues,” said ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs head Ging Reyes.
