Corporate Profile

GMA NETWORK, INC. is the leading broadcasting company in the Philippines. It operates a network of 47 Very High Frequency (VHF) including 1 affiliate, 32 Ultra High Frequency (UHF) television stations and 21 radio stations throughout the country.

The Network was founded by Robert La Rue Stewart in 1950 as Republic Broadcasting System (RBS) with flagship AM radio station DZBB operating from the Calvo Building in Escolta, Manila.

RBS ventured into television in 1961 and began broadcasting on Channel 7 in the Greater Manila Area. In 1975, the triumvirate of Felipe L. Gozon, Menardo R. Jimenez and Gilberto M. Duavit took over from the Stewarts the management of RBS and renamed it to GMA 7.

The original meaning of the acronym "GMA" was Greater Manila Area, referring to the initial coverage area of the station. As GMA's reach widened, the meaning of its acronym was changed to Global Media Arts. Today, its corporate name is simply, GMA Network, Inc.

GMA also owns a wide array of media-related businesses apart from its television and radio networks including film production, record publishing and distribution, program acquisition and syndication, international channel operation, production design, talent development and management, marketing and promotions, audio-visual production and new media.

GMA is the most awarded television network in the country. By far, it is the only Philippine media company to have won the coveted Peabody Awards for excellence in journalism (2000 and 2010), and the Best Terrestrial Television Station of the Year (2005) from the Asian Television Awards.

GMA reaches out to millions of Filipinos across the globe through its international channels GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International. These channels are available via cable, direct-to-home and IPTV.

GMA listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange in 2007 with the ticker symbol GMA7 (Common Shares) and GMAP (PDRs).

GMA's official tagline is "Kapuso ng Bawat Pilipino (One in Heart with Every Filipino)."
