ABS-CBN's Hadjie Rieta joins GMA News
Hadji Rieta has joined GMA News and will make his network debut tonight on 24 Oras. Rieta was an anchor/reporter on Ilocos' TV Patrol.
Rieta granted us a short interview this afternoon about his new role as correspondent for GMA News.
Why did you decide to jump from local station (ABS-CBN Laoag) to a major network -- GMA-7?
I transferred to GMA-7 because there was an opportunity for me to be a national reporter. Lahat naman pangarap ito kaya when I learned na puwede I grabbed it already. ABS-CBN did offered me a national job, but I have to wait, eh ang GMA-7 ito na inaantay lang ako na mag-yes. Although I admit that una talaga ako nag-apply sa GMA-7.
How does it feel now that you'll be competing with your former network?
Nandun yung pakiramdam na nahihiya ka kasi siyempre sila yung unang nag-train sayo, pero ganun talaga eh. I compete sa trabaho naman, not personally.
Do you have a long-term goal, now that you're working on one of the major networks?
Yes I have, siguro 5 years from now isa ako sa mga dokumentarista ng I-Witness, libre namang mangarap.
What can viewers expect from you?
Expect a more mature Hadji now, with regards to content of report, siguro kung mapapansin ako, I'll be focusing in studying my story para mas maganda ang presentations ko.
