Kapuso beefs up telecast
in Western Visayas
GMA Kapuso will strengthen the “Isyu Subong” of Bacolod City and “Ratsada” of Iloilo as sources of fair, accurate and balanced reporting as they cover national and local issues that cater to viewers from Western Visayas, a press release from the station said.
The two news programs are now being shown back-to-back with the multi-awarded flagship news broadcast, 24 Oras, and aims to reach more viewers.
Ratsada is anchored by Charlotte Tan-Mabilog, who said she will gladly go back to being a field reporter again “as the fun and the real labor of making a story are there and the experience of interacting with people and their stories is priceless”.
Isyu Subong host Gretchen Varela said being an anchor made her realize the need to be aware of things happening around her.
Ratsada and Isyu Subong air Mondays to Fridays, 5:40 to 6:15 p.m., before 24 Oras. Another regional newscast being shown back-to-back with 24 Oras is Cebu's “Balitang Bisdak” with Bobby Nalzaro, Rose Versoza and Cecille Quibod-Castro, the press release added.*
