Leading broadcast company GMA Network once again won the hearts of students, this time taking home awards from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines during the 3rd Mabini Media Awards held last 17 November at PUP Sta. Mesa, Manila.

The country’s most-awarded news magazine program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho prevailed with back-to-back honors — earning the Best Magazine Program award as well as Best Magazine Program Host for GMA News pillar and KMJS host Jessica Soho.

GMA-7’s flagship newscast 24 Oras won as this year’s Best Primetime News Program. The PUP community also conferred the Best Male News Program Anchor award to one of the program’s anchors, another GMA News pillar, Mike Enriquez.

Enriquez’s weekend show, investigative program Imbestigador, was chosen as this year’s Best Public Affairs Program.

Meanwhile, GMA Network’s pioneering documentary program I-Witness triumphed as Best Documentary Program.


Award-winning and well-loved family sitcom Pepito Manaloto, bannered by Michael V., won as Best Comedy Program.

Soho also added another feather to her cap, this time around for GMA News TV’s flagship evening newscast State of the Nation with Jessica Soho when she was accorded the Best Female News Program Anchor award.

In the radio category, GMA Network’s flagship AM radio station Super Radyo DZBB took home several awards as well. Enriquez won as this year’s Best News Program Host. Nathaniel “Mang Tani” Cruz was honored as Best Public Service Program Host for his program IM Ready sa Dobol B, which also came out as the Best Public Service Program.
