Today marks a change for GMA News TV, the Kapuso Network’s second free-to-air channel, henceforth to be known as GTV — or “the Good TV,” as described by Atty. Annette Gozon on Friday’s mediacon via Zoom.
Also in the event were GMA top executives Nessa Valdellon, Oliver Amoroso, Gigi Lara, Angela Javier Cruz and Jojo Acquio.
“We noticed that audiences now need more variety. With GYV, we aim to touch the hearts of the young and young at heart,” Atty. Gozon said.
The channel unveils a fresh, new look and a slew of shows delivering “news you trust and new shows to love,” GMA network officials said in a statement.
GTV will continue to keep the Network’s commitment to Serbisyong Totoo with a full roster of credible news programs from the award-winning teams of GMA News, GMA Regional TV and DZBB.
Viewers can still catch the live telecast of Super Radyo DZBB’s hottest reports and commentaries on Dobol B TV; as well as Connie Sison and Raffy Tima’s midday newscast Balitanghali.
GTV likewise simulcasts GMA’s flagship news program 24 Oras, anchored by GMA News pillars Mel Tiangco, Mike Enriquez and Vicky Morales.
Meanwhile, the channel’s primetime newscast State of the Nation (SONA), bannered by Atom Araullo and Maki Pulido, provides depth and context to the headlines.
Local news reports continue to be accessible to more viewers via the GMA Regional TV Strip and GMA Regional TV Weekend News, which feature the Network’s award-winning local news programs across the country.
