Big changes in GMA News line-up
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - November 10, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines -  Beginning today, GMA News and Public Affairs unveils dynamic changes in its award-winning newscasts, particularly on GMA 7’s primetime news program 24 Oras, late-night news source Saksi and midday news bulletin Balitanghali on GMA News TV.

24 Oras’ formidable tandem of Mel Tiangco and Mike Enriquez will welcome veteran journalist Vicky Morales as their newest co-anchor. 24 Oras has been a household name since 2004 when GMA News and Public Affairs launched what would be the Kapuso network’s flagship nationwide primetime newscast. The program has since served the need of viewers for non-biased and balanced news, and later extended broadcast to include weekends.

Monday will also see the rebranding of GMA’s regional newscasts into the 24 Oras brand, delivering the news in the distinct 24 Oras style all over the country.

Meanwhile, Saksi, led by Arnold Clavio, will have Pia Arcangel on board as its newest co-anchor.

Connie Sison, on the other hand, will take over as Raffy Tima’s co-anchor in the leading midday newscast Balitanghali, which airs daily on GMA News TV.

Weekend news program 24 Oras Weekend will still be headlined by Jiggy Manicad and Pia, while Mariz Umali and Jun Veneracion anchor Balitanghali Weekend.

With new anchors on board, expect these fortified news programs to continue providing the public with balanced and unbiased news.

“These changes reflect our goal to inject a new dynamism into our newscasts, while still remaining true to our commitment to Serbisyong Totoo — the hallmark of GMA News and Public Affairs,” says SVP for News and Public Affairs Marissa Flores.

24 Oras airs from Monday to Friday at 6:30 p.m. and Saksi at 11 p.m., while 24 Oras Weekend airs at 5:30 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday on GMA 7. Balitanghali, on the other hand, airs weekdays at 11:30 a.m. Balitanghali Weekend airs at 12 noon on GMA News TV.
