GMA News and Public Affairs pillars recognized at 2014 FPI Bayabay Media Awards

GMA News pillars Mike Enriquez, Mel Tiangco, Jessica Soho and Arnold Clavio were each bestowed with the FPI Bayabay Media Award by the Federation of Philippine Industries, Inc. (FPI).

At the awarding ceremony held last September 3 in Makati City, FPI recognized the four Kapuso news anchors for their “untiring effort in discussing important issues that have serious impact on our country and for conscientiously educating the masses in a clear, equitable, and balanced manner, thereby making them a well informed citizenry, which is a basic tenet required to ensure the preservation of our vibrant, democratic country.”

The FPI Bayabay Media Award is given to media practitioners who have raised awareness on socially relevant issues that include good governance, environment, labor and productivity, international trade, the academe, anti-smuggling concerns and other national issues.

These awards serve as a testament to GMA News and Public Affairs’ credo of Serbisyong Totoo as GMA’s broadcast journalists continue to uphold the values of truth and integrity in their responsible delivery of news and information.

Mike Enriquez, who co-anchors GMA’s primetime newscast 24 Oras with Mel Tiangco and banners the hard-hitting investigative program Imbestigador, affirmed his commitment to the anti-smuggling advocacy saying, “Lalo lang iigting ang ating pakikipag-ugnayan at pakikipagtulungan sa mga grupong katulad nito na walang tigil, walang pagod at walang katakot-takot na lumalaban sa anti-smuggling dahil tayo ay galit sa illegal. Kaya kasama natin ang FPI at iba pang grupo at sektor tulad nila, iyong mga gumagawa ng illegal, di namin sila tatantanan.”

“Napakaganda na ang media at ang mga industry leaders ay nagkakaisa upang mabigyang-pansin ang mga mahahalagang isyung panlipunan,” expresses Tiangco. “I’d like to thank the Federation of Philippine Industries for giving me this honor in recognition of our efforts to create awareness and dialogue on issues that matter.”

“I thank our viewers and those who honor us with awards for their trust,” shares Jessica Soho, who hosts the top-rating weekly news magazine program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA-7 and anchors GMA News TV’s flagship newscast State of the Nation with Jessica Soho. “And I will continue to help ensure that we are worthy of their trust – through accurate, objective and responsible news reporting.”

Unang Hirit host and Saksi news anchor Arnold Clavio, relates, on the other hand, “Minsan mahirap pag nasa TV ka o nasa radio ka, iniisip mo kung may nanonood ba o may nakikinig ba. So ang mga ganitong award ay confirmation na natutuwa sila na nasa tamang direksyon tayo.”

The Federation of Philippine Industries, Inc. is an umbrella organization of manufacturers and producers in the Philippines composed of 34 industry associations and 110 corporation members who are local manufacturers and producers of various products from different industries.
