Sungduan: New PTV

STARTING January 8 viewers from Cordillera including Regions I and II will have a new newscast program to watch with the re-launching of Peoples Television Network regional station PTV Cordillera.

After 27 years and 6 months, PTV Cordillera will officially go on air on Monday with the pilot airing of the 30-minute Iluko newscast “Kangrunaan a Damag” as its flagship program. This will be aired from Monday to Friday from 4:30-5:00PM in free TV Channel 8.

Serving the nation, the daily newscast to be anchored by the author and Eddie Carta aims to be the source of accurate, correct and fast information following the vision of the PTV Network as the leading news and public information channel in the country.

PTV CAR Overseer Richard Valdez, a veteran broadcast journalist said the program is also an avenue where the different government agencies and offices in the three regions can also inform the public about the programs and services for the community they serve.

It was in year 1990 when PTV Baguio temporarily stopped its operation when the station was severely damaged by the strong Luzon earthquake.

March 11 last year, President Rodrigo Duterte lead the inauguration of the newly constructed government station at Romulo Drive, Lualhati Barangay here in Baguio City. October 1 last year when the nationwide airing of the daily 10AM and 3PM PTV Cordillera newsbreaks started.

The operation of the new PTV Cordillera means more community will be served. More voices will be heard. More people will be empowered.
