GMA News TV starts today

For the past six months, the men and women of GMA News and Public Affairs have been busy working on an idea - that the country is ready for an all-news and documentary channel on free TV.

That idea - and their effort - will come to fruition today, Feb. 28, as GMA News TV goes on the air, providing the Filipino viewer with a compelling viewing alternative.

Hourly newscasts, live coverage, in-depth documentaries, never-before-seen reality formats, and hard-hitting investigative programs – all on easily accessible free TV Channel 11 – make GMA News TV worth the long wait.

“Importante sa amin na alam ninyo,” states GMA News TV’s station ID. And the free to air news and public affairs channel – from the only broadcast news organization in the Philippines to have won the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award – stays true to that commitment by expanding the Kapuso brand of serbisyong totoo.

For GMA News TV, an informed Filipino audience is an empowered Filipino audience. With this in mind, the channel will provide substantial airtime for live events, important hearings and in-depth discussions of current issues.

Its newscasts kick off bright and early with Dobol B Sa News TV, the simulcast from the network’s flagship radio station DZBB, hosted by GMA News pillar Mike Enriquez. GMA News Online’s Editor-in-Chief Howie Severino and Peabody winner Kara David soon follow with the morning program News to Go.

Jessica Soho, also a Peabody winner and widely regarded as the country’s most awarded broadcast journalist, anchors GMA News TV’s flagship evening newscast, State Of The Nation With Jessica Soho. She is also at the forefront of Brigada – from the highly successful 1990s program that launched the careers of many broadcast journalists – as mentor to today’s generation of reporters.

Arnold Clavio anchors Balita Pilipinas, which features the week’s biggest headlines from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Vicky Morales brings the audience Good News, a one of a kind newscast that celebrates positive news about the country. Mel Tiangco, in turn, hosts Powerhouse, a show that gives viewers a rare glimpse into the private lives of the country’s most powerful individuals.

Much-admired economist and professor Winnie Monsod banners Bawal Ang Pasaway Kay Mareng Winnie!, a program that acts as a government watchdog on the air.

Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ) Executive Director Malou Mangahas hosts Investigative Documentaries. Joining her as members of the program’s board of advisers are veteran journalists Sheila Coronel of Columbia University, Marites Vitug of Newsbreak, Ed Lingao of the PCIJ, Grace dela Peña-Reyes, Head of GMA News Operations and Florian Tarcelo-Balmes of GMA News Research.

Concerns, grievances and complaints against government agencies are addressed by the daily afternoon program On Call hosted by Ivan Mayrina and Connie Sison. On Call will provide on the spot assistance to those seeking help by helping them get in touch with the proper agency or authority.

Reporters Susan Enriquez and Cesar Apolinario host I Juander, a myth-busting program that reintroduces Filipinos to interesting aspects of Pinoy culture. Jun Veneracion, RJ Ledesma and Jace Flores host Best Men, a program that acquaints viewers with a guy’s point of view. Tonipet Gaba delivers Pop Talk, a review show that gives a thumbs up to certain movies, gadgets, food, events and happening places.

“It” girl Solenn Heussaff empowers viewers with Fashbook, a makeover show that also focuses on inner beauty. Weekend Getaway, hosted by Drew Arellano, is a reality-travel show for real weekend warriors. Game!, hosted by Chino Trinidad, is the ultimate source of information on Pinoy sports. Daily showbiz newscast In The Limelight, with Rhian Ramos, offers more than just showbiz gossip.

The mock newscast makes a triumphant – and wacky! – return to television with (May) Tamang Balita, hosted by comedian and internet sensation Ramon Bautista. All Sports, the Sunday sports event program, features the most exciting lineup of both current and classic sporting events.

Pinoy rock icon Pepe Smith, with his equally engaging children, rock the house on the reality program The Smiths. Providing cinematic and family-friendly documentaries every weekend are Front Row and Reel Time.

Dingdong Dantes Excited for Marian

IPINAKITA na ni Dingdong Dantes ang pagiging Knight in Shining Armor niya sa GF niyang si Marian Rivera.

Good for him.

Kahit paano, nagsabi na rin siya na hindi maganda sa panlasa kung pagsasamahin ang kanyang si Marian sa ex nitong si ErvicVijandre sa bagong project nitong Amaya.

Excited na excited pa naman si Dingdong sa ganda ng project ni Marian, pero nang mabalitaan niyang isasama sa cast si Ervic, nakiisa siya kay Marian sa paniniwalang it will leave a bad taste in anyone’s lips kung payagan niya ito.

Marian has been through a lot of intrigues last year at iniiwasan na sana nila ito.

Sobra-sobra na ang epekto kay Marian na sinasabing matapang, maangas at power tripper ang aktres.

“Sana, huwag naman. Akala ko makakapag-focus na si Marian sa kanyang trabaho through Amaya, habang nagfo-focus naman ako sa I Heart You Pare. Sana, ganoon din siya (Marian). Ayaw naman niya ang pangyayaring pinagmumulan ng intriga. Umiiwas naman siya. Kaya lang, heto, na naman,” iiling-iling na pahayag ni Dingdong.

Knowing Dingdong, maaayos naman niya kahit paano ang problemang ito ng kanyang lady love.

Wala namang masama sa pagta-try to explain the matter with the big bosses ng GMA7.

He has his shoulder for Marian to cry on.

Sino pa ba naman ang masasandigan ni Marian sa mga ganitong pagkakataon, kungdi ang maasahan niyang dyowa?

Kayo naman.

Kapani-paniwala bang wala silang pakialaman pagda-ting sa ano mang problema? Charing lang ’yan.

Kampo ni Sid Lucero written offer ang hinihintay sa GMA 7

Ang mga baguhang sina Jome Silayan na apo ni Vic Silayan at ang Jollibee Big Champ endorser na si Michael Daez ang sinasabing dalawang leading men ni Marian Rivera sa Amaya.

Pero ang sabi, isa lang kina Jome at Michael ang magiging leading man ni Marian dahil ang isang makakapareha nito’y si Sid Lucero. Written offer na lang ang hinihintay ng manager ni Sid na si Ricky Gallardo para pormal nang tanggapin ang alok ng GMA. Tinanong muna ni Ricky ang ABS-CBN kung may project sila for Sid bago makipag-usap sa GMA 7.

Kapag naibigay ang request ni Ricky, malamang nasa storycon si Sid bukas ng Amaya. If ever, ang epic serye lang ang gagawin ni Sid dahil tapos na ito sa shooting ng Prey under Direk Dante Mendoza.

Fans ni Marian Rivera naiinip na

Naiinip na ang fans ni Marian Rivera dahil matagal na nilang hindi napapanood sa TV ang kanilang idol.

Nagtatanong din sila kung kailan magsisimula ang Amaya, ang primetime show na pagbibidahan ni Marian.

Ang alam ko, sa May pa ang airing ng Amaya pero magkakaroon si Marian ng weekly drama show sa GMA 7. Hindi ko pa alam ang title ng show pero maganda raw ang concept dahil masusubukan ang husay ni Marian sa pag-arte.

Kahit wala siyang regular show ngayon sa TV, hindi nawawalan ng ginagawa si Ma­rian dahil pinaghahandaan nga niya ang pagsisimula ng taping ng Amaya.

Tapos na ang audition para sa mga aktor na makakapareha ni Marian sa Amaya. Hindi pa puwedeng i-reveal ang kanilang mga identity pero mahuhusay umarte ang mga pumasa sa audition.

Na-meet ko na ang isa sa masuwerteng newcomer dahil siya ang napili na maging other leading man ni Marian. Moreno, matangkad at may TV commercial ang lucky newcomer.

Heart Evangelista Dying to Marry Daniel Matsunaga

HEART Evangelista, who’s celebrating her birthday on Valentine’s Day, guested in the Don’t Lie to Me portion of “Showbiz Central” and on hand to support her was boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga.

John Lapus’ first question: May participation ka ba sa new car na binili ni Daniel? She said yes and it’s true, but quickly clarified that she did not buy it for him. “I just helped him pick which car,” she added. “I bought ‘yung sounds ng car niya as my birthday gift for him.”

Your boyfriend was reported flirting with a model. Nagduda ka ba sa faithfulness niya sa’yo? She said no and it’s a lie. She added that all that is just part of the gimmick for the new product Daniel is endorsing, so she didn’t get jealous at all.

If Daniel would propose to you this year, would you say yes?

She said yes and it’s true. She said she asked the Lord for a sign if Daniel is Mr. Right. When Daniel gave her a Bible while they were in church one day, she felt the Lord has given her the sign she’s asking for.

She also thanked all viewers for supporting “Dwarfina” on primetime and added that a new character will now be seen with her, Dwarfkikay, played by Rufa Mae Quinto as a blonde dwarf who will be her new ally.

Lovi Poe hospitalized due to depression

ALTHOUGH Lovi Poe’s BF, Ronald Singson, has admitted in Hong Kong that they’re on, she still refuses to talk about him. Will she be going to Hong Kong on February 17 when the court gives its verdict to Ronald? “Please, I don’t want to talk about that anymore,” she says, her eyes looking so sad at the final presscon for “My Valentine Girls” last Friday night. “It’s too personal and too sensitive. I hope you understand. Kapag napag-uusapan kasi ‘yan, naiiyak lang ako. It’s very hard.”

So it’ll be a sad Valentines Day for her, which is also her 21st birthday. “I won’t celebrate my birthday this year. I’m just thankful marami akong trabaho to take my mind off things. I don’t want to dwell on problems anymore. I may be 21 but I feel like I’m already 50. I just want peace of mind. I really want to thank my co-stars sa ‘Valentine Girls’ kasi pinasasaya nila ako. After this naman, I start taping ‘Captain Barbell’ where I play a superhero na anak pala ng main villain, Christopher de Leon.”

The day after the presscon, Lovi was rushed to St. Luke’s hospital due to high fever caused by coughing and severe depression.

Iwa Moto, galit!

Parang sa pelikula ang dialogue ni Iwa Moto na siya naman ang mang­gugulo sa buhay ng babae na third party sa relasyon nila ng kanyang non-showbiz boyfriend na si Mickey Ablan.

Taga-showbiz ang babae na sumisira sa relasyon nina Mickey at Iwa kaya may banta ito na makaririnig ang girl kapag nagsalubong ang kanilang landas.

Hindi sinabi ni Iwa ang name ng babae na nagtatangka na maagaw ang kanyang boyfriend pero sa dami ng mga reporters na nag-iimbestiga, tiyak na lilitaw din ang pangalan ng mystery girl. Isang clue tungkol sa identity ng babae ang nasagap ko, hindi siya Kapuso o Kapatid dahil Kapamilya ang kinamumuhian ni Iwa.

Kitang-kita sa mukha ni Iwa ang sobrang galit habang nagsasalita. Kung sinuman ang babae na kanyang tinutukoy, dapat umiwas para hindi niya matikman ang galit ni Iwa.

Lovi Poe admits long-time crush for Richard

NANINIWALA si Lovi Poe na walang maliit na role sa isang mahusay na artista. At mukhang ito ang gusto niyang patunayan.

“Basta po for art’s sake, okey lang po sa akin,” sabi ng magandang anak ng yumaong King of Philippines movies na si FPJ. “At saka, kaila-ngan lang, naniniwala ka sa director mo at sa mga kasama mo sa pelikula.”

Sa pelikulang My Valentine Girls ng GMA Films at Regal Entertainment, marami silang kissing scenes ng leading man na si Richard Gutierrez.

“Disente si Richard at marespeto sa kanyang leading ladies,” ani Lovi.

“Mahusay din po ang director naming na si Andoy Ranay kaya kahit anong ipagawa niya, okey lang sa akin.”

Richard is a perfect gentleman, ayon kay Lovi. Nagulat nga siya nang dalawin siya nito sa set ng My Little Star. Hindi nga siya makapaniwala na ginawa ito ni Richard na since high school ay crush na niya. But of course, we all know na taken na si Lovi. Inamin na ni Cong. Ronald Singson na ngayo’y may kaso pa sa Hong Kong ang tungkol sa kanilang dalawa. In fact, moral support ang gustong iparating ni Richard para kay Lovi sa mga pinagdadaanan nito ngayon.

Alam din ni Lovi na mas close si Richard sa isa pa nitong leading lady na si Solenn Heussaff. Bagama’t hindi pa sila on, halata na-ming doon na papunta ang relasyon ng dalawa.

Pero ang nakatatawa, nang tanungin ang isa pa sa star ng My Valentine Girls na si Jillian Ward kung sino ang sa palagay niya’y mas gusto niya para kay Richard sa tatlong leading ladies nito sa naturang pelikula, sinabi ng bata na, “Si Rhian Ramos po. Bagay po sila,” sabi nito habang naglalaro ng lutu-lutuan sa presidential table.

Yan ang opinion ng isang bata na kadalasan ay nagsasabi ng totoo.

Dingdong Dantes Updates

Tuwang-tuwa si Dingdong Dantes sa bago niyang teleserye na I Heart You Pare with Regine Velasquez, kasi pagkatapos ng dalawang heavy drama na teleseryeng ginawa niya, isang light romance comedy naman ang tema ng teleserye nila ni Regine. And this time, mala-king transformation din ang ginawa sa kanyang looks para sa bago niyang character. Balbas-sarado siya at medyo rough at bad boy ang kilos na malayo sa usual na clean-cut image na pino-portray niya dati. Pinansin din ng press ang bagong screen name na ginamit ni Regine na Regine Velasquez-Alcasid. Kailan naman daw magkakaroon ng screen name na Marian Rivera-Dantes si Marian?

“It would really be nice kung dadalhin na rin ni Marian ang surname ko someday pero sa ngayon ay wala pa talaga. Hindi pa naman pinag-uusapan ang tungkol sa kasal. Bago siguro ‘yun dapat ay magkaroon muna ng wedding proposal at ’yun na lang ang abangan ninyo,” say ni Dingdong.

Sobra kaming natuwa sa gay character ni Tirso Cruz III sa I Heart You Pare. Aba, talagang badich na badich ang kilos, pananamit at pagsasalita niya.

“Naku, mas maganda pa ako kay Bembol no?”tili niya sa press, referring to his good friend Bembol Rocco, na bading din ang naging role sa Beauty Queen. Kasama rin si Paolo Ballesteros sa I Heart You Pare bilang isa sa drag queens. Mukhang wala nang problema si Paolo sa kanyang tunay na sekswalidad kasi todo-bigay na siya sa kanyang gay roles. At maski sa Eat Bulaga, game na game na siyang na-kikipagharutan kina Joey de Leon at iba pa kapag natatawag bilang isa sa EB Babes.

In fairness naman kasi kay Paolo, napakaganda naman kasi niya kung nakadamit-babae at mas maganda pa sa ibang tunay na girls diyan!
