KARA David assumes hosting duties of GMA News TV’s investigative news magazine program “Brigada.”
The multi-awarded broadcast journalist is no stranger to the said program. David has been veteran journalist Jessica Soho’s researcher in “Brigada Siete” during the ‘90s and she considers Soho as a mentor during her stint with the program.
As a broadcast journalist, David’s potential as an on-cam reporter was discovered when she was sent to cover the breaking news story of the MV Kimelody Cristy sinking in 1995.
One of David’s most memorable “Brigada Siete” stories was her documentary on Sitio Avocado, formerly a war-torn and NPA-infested area in Negros Oriental. She witnessed how their first batch of graduates gave the community hope to rise from the ashes.
For her first episode as the new host of “Brigada” last June 11, the show tackled the final ruling of the Supreme Court that Filipino and Panitikan (Philippine Literature) may now be excluded from the core subjects in college. Another story delved into the Philippines’ alarming teacher shortage.
New story. New experience. New generation of journalists. Catch the all-new “Brigada” on GMA News TV. (PR)
