JESSICA Soho is no stranger to winning local and international awards and is widely regarded as the most awarded broadcast journalist in the Philippines.

The GMA News and Public Affairs pillar continues to earn the trust of the public and of various award-giving bodies for her work both as a news anchor and a public affairs host.

In fact, her show, Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS), again brought honor to the country when it won the Bronze medal at the 2022 New York Festivals TV & Film Awards (NYF) for its “Bestida ni Ranelyn (Ranelyn's Dress)” segment.

KMJS’ winning entry in the Documentary: Health/Medical Information category featured the story of six-year-old girl Ranelyn.

She longed to wear her favorite bestida (dress) after being reduced to literally skin and bones due to poverty and severe malnourishment.

In her acceptance speech, Soho expressed her gratitude to NYF and the people who helped Ranelyn.

“Ranelyn is a girl so severely malnourished she couldn’t even put on her favorite dress. Sadly, there are so many more like her in a poor country like ours,” she said.

The broadcast journalist shared that help came after her story aired, and today she’s in school and hopefully on her way to a brighter future.

At the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Awards 2022, Soho was also recognized as one of the most trusted news personalities.

For the 13th consecutive year, she took home the “Most Trusted TV Host for News and Current Affairs” award, a statement from GMA-7 said.

She continues to earn the Filipinos’ trust year after year, long after earning a spot in the Hall of Fame in 2018, it added.

“Thank you for your never-ending trust,” Soho said during her speech, adding that she wishes to be able to live up to it in the course of her work and despite the very trying times we’re all living in. (PR)
