GMA Regional TV remains committed to providing unparalleled community service to Filipinos in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao via its Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels, which to date, has benefitted 11,850 families.
The Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels was launched in May 2020 as a mobile version of GMA RTV’s Kapuso Barangayan, which was originally a community activity held in different barangays across the regions. With the community quarantine, GMA RTV introduced 'Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels' to reach more communities and directly provide residents the assistance they urgently need. The areas covered include North Central Luzon, South Luzon, Central and Eastern Visayas, Western Visayas, Northern Mindanao, and Southern Mindanao.
“It has been almost a year since we transformed our Kapuso Barangayan into a mobile activity to benefit our fellow Filipinos during this pandemic,” said GMA Regional TV and Synergy First Vice President and Head Oliver Victor Amoroso. “No one has been spared and many families are still struggling to cope—most especially our Kapuso in the regions who have lost their sources of income during the pandemic. Nananatiling kasama po ninyo ang GMA Regional TV. We thank our partners in the local government and private sectors for joining us in this regional initiative. We are now on our fourth leg and we will continue to work hand in hand with the government and private sectors as we face these difficult times because of the COVID pandemic,” he added.
Just recently, the Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels won an Excellence Award in Communication Management under the Corporate Social Responsibility Division 1 category at the 18th Philippine Quill Awards. The Philippine Quill is considered one of the country’s most prestigious awards programs in the field of business communications. It also received a Special Citation merit at the 42nd Catholic Mass Media Awards in the Best TV Ad-Public Service category.
GMA RTV has already rolled out three legs of the said regional initiative. The first wave was held from May to August in 2020 with a total of 2,610 family beneficiaries. This was followed by the second Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels which saw 4,200 families gaining assistance from August to December. From December 2020 to March 2021, a total of 5,040 families were served by Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels. The fourth leg is set to be conducted this April.
In North Central Luzon, 2,120 families benefited from the Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels during the first three legs that were rolled out. One of the recipients is Sonia Delfin, a sidewalk buko vendor who was affected by community quarantine caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. She is grateful that GMA RTV reached her barangay.
Meanwhile, during its first Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels in the Bicol region, GMA RTV has already reached 840 families. In Barangay Pipian in San Fernando, Camarines Sur, the team met 26-year-old Cyril Flores. The wife of a farmer and mother of three kids said that the Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels was very timely for they are having a hard time trying to make ends meet during this pandemic.
In Central Eastern Visayas, a total of 2,450 families were assisted. One of them is 65-year-old Juanito Perez of Brgy. Inayawan in Cebu City. Perez has been providing for his family as a waste picker at the Inayawan dumpsite. Another recipient is Gloria Jumalon of Brgy. Ibo in Lapu-Lapu City. The 72-year-old woman lives in a small house while taking care of her 22-year-old grandchild with Down syndrome and cerebral palsy.
On the other hand, GMA RTV was able to assist 2,620 families in Western Visayas during the three legs of Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels. Here the team met 28-year-old Ronald Hollera and 65-year-old Nelly Piagola. Hollera, who hails from Brgy. Trapiche in Oton, Iloilo, has been paralyzed after being hit by a motorcycle last 2015. Nanay Nelly, on the other hand, is from Brgy. Bito-on in Jaro, Iloilo City. She is taking care of her 16-year-old granddaughter who was diagnosed with bone cancer.
In Northern Mindanao, a total of 1,680 families were the recipients of food packs and grocery items. One of them is the family of 49-year-old Castor Aranjuez of Barangay Canitoan, Cagayan De Oro City. Aranjuez, despite being an amputee, continues to practice his craft of welding metal to produce plant stands, dog cages, and the likes—his way to make ends meet and sustain his family.
In Southern Mindanao, GMA RTV was able to serve 2,140 families, including Merlita Lausa of Brgy. Kinawitnon, Island Garden City of Samal. The 51-year-old widow has been supporting her five children by offering laundry and mowing services.
On top of distributing essential items to thousands of families across the country, GMA RTV led various brief and relevant lectures on proper health and safety protocols. To further instill hope in the hearts of the beneficiaries, each pack of Kapuso Barangayan on Wheels items included notes with messages of encouragement from the anchors and hosts of GMA RTV’s newscasts and morning programs.
SHEDDING light on the struggles of Filipinos in the education sector, GMA Public Affairs' “The Atom Araullo Specials: Batch 2020” was named Outstanding Video Feature Story on Youth and Education at the 16th Lasallian Scholarum Awards. The virtual awarding ceremony was held last March 26.
"Batch 2020" featured four stories of students, teachers, and members of the education sector who were forced to adjust to meet the demands of studying under the new normal due to the pandemic. These stories included a grade 7 student who collects and sells crabs to save money for his online schooling; a teacher juggling her responsibilities as a mother of three and as an educator; an overseas Filipino worker working as a tutor; and residents of the municipality of General Nakar, Quezon--considered as the most secluded place in the Philippines that does not have electricity for online classes.
Various GMA entries were also shortlisted in the same category.
One of these was 'iJuander's' Edukasyon episode, which also showed the struggles of Filipinos in this pandemic. The news magazine show is hosted by Susan Enriquez and Mark Salazar.
Select episodes of GMA News' #BetterNormalPH were also recognized as finalists. These were "Project WIFI: Ayudang free WIFI para sa estudyanteng Pilipino"; "National Teacher's month hindi ramdam ng mga guro ngayong new normal"; "Bayanihan para sa online class shed"; "Online classes ng mga anak, naka-enroll nga rin ba ang mga magulang?"; "Edukasyon sa 'New Normal"; and "Paano hihikayatin ang mga kabataang magbasa ngayong quarantine?" Hosted by veteran journalist Malou Mangahas, #BetterNormalPH explores how Filipinos are adjusting to the new normal brought by the pandemic.
Also making it to the list was the episode of the weekly online series 'RTx' entitled "Magkakapatid, naghihiraman sa isang cellphone makapag-aral lang sa online class!"
Meanwhile, GMA News Online's "Here's how schools can move forward amid COVID-19 threat, expert says" written by Kaela Malig, was also shortlisted under the Outstanding Online Feature Category.
De La Salle University’s Lasallian Scholarum Awards celebrates the outstanding professional and student media coverage of youth and education stories. The ceremony’s theme focused on “Adapt-ed: Youth and Education in the Time of Pandemic,” which highlighted the resilience of the country’s youth and education sectors in the face of the unprecedented challenges brought by COVID-19.
Premiered last Monday, April 5, Sing-Galing has since been upgraded with its new features, extra challenges, and hilarious antics.
With the help and expertise of Sing Masters Randy Santiago, Donita Nose, and K Brosas, as the show’s hosts, and Juke Bosses Rey Valera, Ronnie Liang, and Jessa Zaragoza as the jury, both the contenders and Ka-Awit-Bahay are up for weeknight harmonies with their family and loved ones.
On what viewers can look forward to, Ronnie Liang said, “Dito sa Sing Galing mai-expect nating mga ka-awitbahay of course ‘yung labanan ng mga pagalingan sa pagvi-videoke. Masusubok pa lalo kung sino talaga ‘yung master when it comes to doing the videoke thing. Kaming mga Jukebosses naman, makikita nila kung gaano kami kagaling mag-analyze ng mga performances nila sa pagvi-Videoke.”
First aired in the late ‘90s, Sing-Galing—which is a multi-awarded Videoke Game show, and the first of its kind in the Philippines and Asia—gives equal opportunity for everyone to earn by simply singing. Participants don’t need to be experts and professionals in the art; they only need guts and fun to compete at a karaoke format.
More than anything, this is TV5’s way of providing relief during a time of uncertainty. Sing Galing! not only brings the karaoke bar or party experience closer to home, but it also creates an avenue for families and communities to bond and come together in song.
Tune in at 6:30PM everyday on TV5, for an entertaining, light, and enjoyable bonding experience
The strength of the show lies in the story that redefines our understanding of real-life miracles complemented by the cast whimsically engaging with the reality of their situation and environment. Ultimately, Niño and Niña make us realize the true meaning of healing, forgiveness, and finding freedom in an unlikely place.

Staying true to GMA’s goal of enabling millions of households to access high-quality yet affordable TV viewing experience, GMA Affordabox is priced at only P888 with no monthly fees.
We, at GMA Network, express our gratitude to our Kapuso viewers for their continued trust and for wholeheartedly welcoming GMA Affordabox into their homes.

Viewers can catch all the Kapuso channels GMA, GMA News TV, Heart of Asia, Hallypop, as well as DepEd TV, and other available free-to-air channels in digital broadcast in their areas.
As GMA Network expands its digital broadcast coverage, more and more Filipinos are able to use GMA Affordabox. Recently, Misamis Oriental (including Cagayan de Oro City) and Camiguin were added to its coverage areas.

Quality digital TV viewing is now made accessible to the majority of Filipino homes. It’s exciting to hit the one million mark only months into its launch and we are very grateful for the support of our Kapuso viewers,” Bautista said.
This 2021, GMA Network is also set to launch its digital TV mobile receiver, GMA Now, which will allow users to watch TV on the go for free.
This year has been exceptionally challenging for us, Filipinos. We have braved the effects of the Taal Volcano eruption, the global pandemic, and most recently, the onslaught of typhoons Rolly and Ulysses. As 2020 draws to a close, GMA Network ushers the Holiday season by unifying our hearts' utmost desire that amidst the circumstances, better days will be ahead through its Christmas Station ID, “Isang Puso Ngayong Pasko.”
“Isang Puso Ngayong Pasko” puts the spotlight on the innate kindness of Filipinos and the love we have for each other that fuels our resilience, and most importantly, the strength of our faith in God.
The Kapuso Network’s heartwarming campaign features its various artists and news and public affairs personalities expressing their sincerest gratitude to everyone who extended their hand to those in great need, most especially to the frontliners who continue to help fellow Filipinos battle the COVID-19 pandemic, the first responders who rushed to the scenes of devastation to rescue and evacuate those in peril, and to Filipinos who opened their hearts in their own simple ways.
Moreover, the station ID shows the Kapuso artists' several initiatives to help and uplift the spirits of their kababayans – a lot of them gave out food for the frontliners such as couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera who even prepared the meals herself; Alden Richards who donated food from his restaurant; Dennis Trillo and Jennylyn Mercado who contributed essential supplies for the frontliners; the Eat Bulaga dabarkads who gave 3D printing machines for PPE production; Heart Evangelista who provided tablets for students to use in remote learning; Willie Revillame who gave generous donations to jobless jeepney drivers and to the people of Catanduanes; and many others who extended help in their own meaningful ways.
And with everything unfolding amidst the pandemic and numerous natural disasters, the men and women of GMA News and Public Affairs were also able to step up to the plate as they took their vow of Serbisyong Totoo to the next level by delivering timely news and information to the Filipinos.
The Network, through GMA Kapuso Foundation, likewise tirelessly provided aid to the medical frontliners and Filipino families in need, emulating true bayanihan spirit.
“Isang Puso Ngayong Pasko” brings together all hearts this Christmas and no pandemic will stop the Kapuso Network from remembering the true reason for this season.
With our resilient hearts working as one, we, Filipinos, will pick ourselves up, rebuild our lives, and work toward better days.
The wait is almost over for loyal Kapuso viewers as GMA Network’s internationally-acclaimed series, “Descendants of the Sun: The Philippine Adaptation,” finally returns to primetime beginning October 26.
Its lead stars – Primetime King Dingdong Dantes and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado are equally excited for the series’ highly-anticipated comeback on GMA Telebabad.
“Sa TV audience, meron kaming promise na binigay sa kanila when we started airing, and that was na kukumpletuhin namin ‘yung kuwento. So this is us fulfilling that promise,” Dingdong shared. “Kaya gusto namin i-share ‘yung excitement sa aming pagbabalik. DOTS makes us proud to be Kapuso and proud Filipinos so much more.”
Jennylyn echoed his sentiments, “Sobrang excited na ako that people will be able to watch ‘yung pinaghirapan namin ng cast and crew. We’re very proud of how the series turned out, and we hope na patuloy subaybayan ng Kapuso viewers ang Descendants of the Sun. Finally ay magpapatuloy na ang kuwento nina Capt. Lucas at Doc Maxine.”
Also eager for the continuation of the story are Rocco Nacino and Jasmine Curtis-Smith who play Wolf and Captain Moira, respectively.
Rocco shared that he is proud to be part of a series that has left a significant mark in the entertainment industry, “We are coming back at excited na excited na kami. We’re all very proud of a project that has made a difference and has become a game-changer in this field. It’s nice to know that you’re part of something na tumatak sa mga tao, hindi lang sa Pilipinas kundi pati sa ibang bansa.”
Meanwhile, Jasmine highlighted the relevance of the series especially for frontliners during these challenging times, “Nakaka-proud na maging part ng DOTS, not just because of the recognitions that it has, but also because it’s a timely and relevant series. It’s nice that we are able to somehow humanize our frontliners and give them representation before, even more so now. In a way, the series gives them love and comfort while watching it because they know that they are seen and appreciated. “
The series left off with Capt. Lucas (Dingdong) and Dr. Maxine (Jennylyn) eciding that the two of them were better off apart because they lead very different lives. And with the medical team’s mission in Urdan coming to an end, they bid their farewells to their friends and the military members. In the midst of their flight back to Manila, an intense earthquake strikes Urdan and records multiple casualties.
DOTS premiered on February 10 but production was temporarily halted due to the restrictions brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last month, lock-in tapings which followed strict safety protocols were held which enabled the production team to wrap up the series.
DOTS is under the direction of Dominic Zapata.
Don’t miss the much-awaited return of “Descendants of the Sun: The Philippine Adaptation,” starting with recap episodes on October 26 and fresh episodes beginning November 5, after ‘Encantadia’ on GMA Telebabad.
The Clash Season 1 Champion Golden Cañedo has a musical treat up her sleeve as she releases a new single under GMA Music entitled "Walang Hanggang Sandali."
She considers it a blessing to have been entrusted with a song composed by esteemed OPM artists Ebe Dancel, Yumi Lacsamana, Herbert Hernandez, and Jim Paredes.
The song was likewise a product of the 1st Filscap Master camp, the first major songwriting collaboration in the Philippines.

And now ako na mismo ang kakanta ng gawa nila. Also, thankful din po ako sa GMA Network, GMA Artist Center, and GMA Music dahil ako ang napili nila namagbigay-buhay sa kantang ito.”
