ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs Division announced that the use of augmented reality and touch screens, which it used in its “Halalan 2010” election coverage last May, will now be part of its nightly newscasts to help make news stories more understandable to viewers.
The country’s number one newscast “TV Patrol,” which now returns to its original title, will continue to break important news and begin producing investigative reports, in-depth political analyses by Lynda Jumilla, and sports news.
Broadcast journalists Ted Failon, Karen Davila, and Julius Babao will anchor the newscast on weeknights, while Bernadette Sembrano and Alex Santos will take over on weekends.
One of the changes introduced in “TV Patrol” is the “Bayan Mo, i-Patrol Mo” segment, wherein citizens will now be involved in finding solutions to the problems in their own communities with reporter Sol Aragones.
Through the years, “TV Patrol” has been actively bridging those in need with those who are willing to help through its public service segment that will now be called “Lingkod Kapamilya.” It will also soon set up a public service center.
On the other hand, the late night newscast “Bandila” anchored by Henry Omaga Diaz and Ces Orena Drilon will have more in-depth political stories and analysis by Lynda Jumilla and weekly consumer reports by Alvin Elchico.
ABS-CBN remains to be the most credible broadcast news organization in the country with multimedia platforms reaching more Filipinos worldwide and a wide pool of multimedia journalists who report on TV, write for abs-cbnnews.com, and engages with the people using their social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook.
Tune in to the new “TV Patrol” and “Bandila” beginning Wednesday (June 30) on ABS-CBN.
