(The Philippine Star) - October 27, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - News5 host Lourd de Veyra recently bagged another award for his efforts in upholding and promoting the value of Philippine culture and history. 

The National Commission for Culture and Arts (NCCA), the Philippine institution primarily tasked to implement the overall policies and programs on Philippine culture and arts, recognized Lourd as the Best Culture-Based Documentation Host for two of his hit programs on TV5 — History with Lourd (Wednesday nights at 10:30) and Word of the Lourd (Fridays, during Aksyon sa Umaga).  

Both programs have developed a following, especially because of the unique mix of entertainment and education viewers get to enjoy while watching them. History with Lourd sheds light on several controversies and untold stories in Philippine history that have long intrigued scholars and common citizens alike. Meanwhile, Word of the Lourd, which has especially become a hit among netizens, features satires and candid commentary by Lourd on several relevant news and political issues.  

2014 has noticeably been a banner year for awards for Lourd, after the same program History with Lourd, likewise received from the Hildegarde Awards the Outstanding Achievement in the Broadcast Media (Television) honor early this year. Likewise, Lourd also took home the Adamson Media Award, besting other media practitioners from all over the country and being just the fourth person in history to win the award (and the first from TV5).  

Lourd is also at the helm of the morning news program Aksyon sa Umaga (weekdays at 5 a.m.) and hosts the weather segment of the flagship primetime newscast program Aksyon (weeknights at 6:15) on TV5.
