NEWS5 Probes Political Families in ‘Balwarte’ Starting Feb 3
Led by its chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes, NEWS5’s experienced pool of anchors profile known Filipino political personalities and discover how even the simplest towns become bulwarks in the race for power and position. For its pilot episode, Valdes will assess Rectos’ reach in Batangas where incumbent governor Vilma Santos-Recto is seeking re-election. The Rectos are joined by the Sanchezes and Levistes, who also have a long history of public service in the province.
In the coming weeks, NEWS5 anchors will document other political heavyweights in the Philippines. Balwarte airs weekly on Sundays from 11:00 to 11:45 PM beginning February 3 on TV5 and Aksyon TV.
