Most Filipinos Watched ABS-CBN’s SONA Coverage

When President Benigno Aquino III delivered his first State of the Nation Address, most Filipinos here and abroad actually tuned in to ABS-CBN, which gave the widest and most comprehensive coverage.

Data from Kantar Media (formerly TNS) show that more Filipinos watched ABS-CBN’s SONA coverage dubbed “Boses ng Bayan: Unang SONA ni Pangulong Aquino,” which had a national TV rating of 18.7% vs. GMA 7’s “Sona 2010” with 15.6%.

The coverage was not only on TV as ABS-CBN provided the widest SONA coverage via cable TV, radio, and internet, too.

Studio 23, ANC, DZMM TeleRadyo, DZMM Radyo Patrol 630,, and The Filipino Channel or TFC enabled many Filipinos to watch or to listen to President Aquino’s SONA wherever they were.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN multimedia broadcast journalists swept top honors at the Comguild Center for Journalism Awards: Ted Failon as the Most Outstanding Male News Presenter; Karen Davila as the Most Outstanding Female Presenter; Anthony Taberna as the Best Male Field Reporter of the Year; and Ina Reformina as the Best Female Field Reporter of the Year.
