Beginning June 3, “Balitanghali” – GMA Integrated News’ award-winning newscast on GTV – further strengthens its commitment to delivering timely and relevant news as it moves to a longer and earlier timeslot.

Anchored by two of the country’s award-winning and seasoned journalists, Connie Sison and Raffy Tima, “Balitanghali” now airs a full hour of the latest and the biggest developing news that tackle topics close to the hearts of Filipinos from Mondays to Fridays at 10 AM. Joining Connie and Raffy is “Mare, Ano’ng Latest” segment host and entertainment reporter Aubrey Carampel for the hottest showbiz news and lifestyle features.

Fortifying “Balitanghali” is “Regional TV News,” which brings to the fore the most relevant and timely stories from the different regions in the country. Hosting this segment are veteran broadcast journalists Cris Zuñiga of GMA Regional TV One North Central Luzon, Cecille Quibod-Castro of GMA Regional TV Balitang Bisdak, and Sarah Hilomen-Velasco of GMA Regional TV One Mindanao.

Connie Sison underscores Balitanghali’s public service for almost two decades: “Halos 19 na taon na po ninyong kasalo sa balitaan ang Balitanghali. Asahan po ninyong tuloy ang pagsisikap namin na maihatid sa inyo, aming loyal viewers, ang lahat ng importanteng pangyayari saan mang sulok ng mundo, katuwang ang buong puwersa ng GMA Integrated News.”

“With the integration of ‘Regional TV News’ in ‘Balitanghali,’ viewers can expect reports on local issues and stories that directly impact communities across the Philippines. This is a testament to GMA Integrated News’ ‘Mas malaking misyon, mas malawak na paglilingkod sa bayan.’ It underscores our duty to serve Filipinos wherever they may be, highlighting that ‘Local News Matters,’ and ensuring that Filipinos are well-informed about what matters most in their local community,” said GMA Senior Vice President and Head of GMA Integrated News, Regional TV and Synergy Oliver Victor B. Amoroso.

Raffy Tima reechos this commitment: “Sa pagpapatuloy na paghahatid ng balita ng Balitanghali, matutunghayan ninyo ang mas pinalakas at mas pinalawak na pagbabalita mula sa mas maraming news teams na nakakalat sa buong bansa. Bahagi ito, hindi lang ng aming kagustuhang makapaghatid ng tamang impormasyon sa mga manonood, kundi ng balitang magagamit ng taumbayan sa kanilang pagdedesisyon. Ito ang mas malawak naming misyon.”
