ABS-CBN:My Favorite TV Station of the Year

For this writing project. We were asked by Richard Paglicawan to choose who among the top TV stations are our favorite.

Favorite TV Station of the Year: Bloggers’ Choice – #NCA2012
 
Since time immemorial, I am fascinated and watch only one channel and that is ABS-CBN -Channel 2.  I always love ABS-CBN ever since I was a child. Why? Because I grew up
watching the afternoon news anchored by Ted Failon, Korina Sanchez and Magandang Gabi Bayan and TV Patrol  by Noli
de Castro.

Remember this tagline? “Batu-bato sa langit, ang tamaa’y ‘wag magagalit. Ang pikon ay laging talo.” 


“Yan ang sigaw ng sambayanan” ’90s ABS-CBN public service show, “Hoy Gising” rouse my interest in our country’s current situation. The “Hoy Gising” anchor Ted Failon’s solid voice warning sleepyheads from beds of corruption, incompetence and inaction still lingers in my mind. “Hoy Gising” is famous for lambasting the crooked and the inept, “Hoy Gising” was the public’s confidant, with Ted Failon and Korina Sanchez known for fiery commentaries and follow-ups, some even prompting libel cases and death threats to the anchors of the show. They even tackle problems on bureaucracy. 

I also love how Gina Lopez’s pro-environment activities. Who can forget her campaign for La Mesa Dam?  ABS-CBN PR Manager Kathy Solis also provided me with several opportunities to cover and had interaction with my favorite stars and singers. ABS-CBN listen not only to the people involved in the story but they also ask about the
viewers’ point of view through regular polls and viewers interaction.

I am also a The Buzz fanatic, I don’t dare miss any of their episodes on a Sunday afternoon. This is where we get the latest buzz about the kapamilya stars in the showbiz world.

Not to mention, how we laugh hard when my then, three year old nephew warned his mom that she could not spank him because he’ll dial Bantay Bata 143. This is how influential ABS CBN is.

I am so addicted to Showtime because of Anne Curtis and Vice Ganda. I also love Gandang Gabi Vice and never miss any of GGV episode if possible. Sobrang Wagi ng mga iba’t ibang shows ng ABS-CBN kaya super love din sila ng mamamayang Filipino.

The ’70s inspiration reflects last year’s emergence of fresh OPM acts and the return to original compositions. That’s why MYX Channel head Andre Allan Alvarez wants to continue the channel’s legacy, as he aims to jumpstart and support Original Pilipino Music’s new Golden Age.

 

It can be recalled that the ’70s was the Golden Age of OPM. The MYX Music Awards brings back the colorful era with a series of offerings that every music lover will enjoy.
He added that every music and artist — be it rock, pop, R&B, etc. — has its/his own potential of getting known worldwide.
“As a music channel, MYX takes pride in letting artists perform no matter which network or station they belong to. So long as you’re a performer or a musician, MYX welcomes you, regardless of network affiliation,” Alvarez said.
