GMA Vice President and Head of Corporate Affairs and Communications Angel Javier Cruz said, “Broadcasting is not just a business that seeks the bottom line. We have the responsibility to deliver superior entertainment and unbiased, timely, and accurate news. This is what we do in the GMA Network Virtual Studio Tours—growing a community of media-literate audiences and inspiring the next-generation of broadcast professionals.”
Originally an on-foot program that offers a glimpse of the world behind the doors of the country’s top broadcast company, the GMA Tours has evolved from being a go-see through the studios, into a classroom away from school with the help of the Network’s vast pool of broadcast experts.
