By Media Newser Philippines | Tuesday, June 13, 2017

This year, GMA Network’s Public Affairs Department celebrates three decades of public service.

To mark this milestone upon hitting its 30th year, GMA Public Affairs will air a special documentary entitled “Sa Serbisyong Totoo, Nabago ang Buhay Ko” which will present a few of the life-changing stories aired by GMA Public Affairs programs over the past decades.

The special will revisit inspiring people whose lives significantly changed after being featured on our programs. It will also showcase some of the most powerful we have produced: stories which initiated viewers to move, encouraged government to act, reconnected families and which were instrumental in giving our subjects a new lease on life.

The special  “Sa Serbisyong Totoo, Nabago Ang Buhay Ko” airs June 26 on GMA.  It will be hosted by Ms. Jessica Soho.

PRESS RELEASE FROM GMA-7:
Four (4) George Foster Peabody Awards, eleven (11) New York Festival Gold Medals, three (3) Emmy nominations … this unprecedented record makes GMA Network the most internationally awarded in Philippine Television, a success primarily brought about by its News and Public Affairs programs.

This year, GMA Network’s Public Affairs Department celebrates three decades of public service.

It was in 1984 that the first GMA Public Affairs program was born with the creation of Viewpoint, a talk show hosted by Dong Puno. In 1987, an in-house Public Affairs team was formally setup in the network.  Weekly talk shows soon followed with Weekend with Velez hosted by Jose Mari Velez, Firing Line with Teddy Benigno, Issues and Answers with Art Borjal and The Probe Team with Cheche Lazaro.

Three decades later, GMA Public Affairs has grown into a department now producing 27 (13 programs air on GMA and 14 on GMA News TV) of the most watched, most awarded and most admired programs on Philippine television including I-Witness, Reel Time, Front Row, Reporter’s Notebook, Imbestigador, Wish Ko Lang and Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho among many others.
