MANILA, Philippines — A P700-million media center for Mindanao, which will house state-of-the-art facilities, is set to be constructed in Davao City.           

Special Assistant to the President Christopher ‘Bong’ Go led the groundbreaking ceremony as he explained that the media hub proves the government’s commitment to serve Filipinos better.

The facility, he added, will enable the media to reach a larger audience.

“This is the first time in our country that the radio, TV, print, wire service, intra personal communication, online and new media will be under one roof,” Go said, as he pointed out that it answers the call of media practitioners to have a hub for Mindanao island.

Go said the Mindanao media hub would house several state-of-the-art facilities and studios that will serve Regions 10 to 13. It will also function as an emergency broadcast station during calamities, disasters and emergencies.

Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Martin Andanar joined Go in the groundbreaking ceremony in Barangay Matina yesterday afternoon.
