“These digital offerings are in response to the public’s need for reliable and engaging stories and continue the Kapamilya news team’s mission of finding more ways to serve the Filipino wherever they may be,” said Francis Toral, ABS-CBN News head.
“They also aim to provide Filipinos with news they can use, help them understand current issues and events, and keep them up to date on hot and trending stories,” she added.
After its soft launch in September, “SOS: Stars on Spotlight” premiered on Oct. 7 in its regular time slot at 4 p.m. every Saturday on the ABSCBN News YouTube channel (youtube.com/abscbnnews).
The recap of the week’s biggest and most talked-about showbiz and entertainment stories that aired on “TV Patrol” is headlined alternately by Ganiel Krishnan and MJ Felipe. A day after its YouTube run, the episode will stream on the ABS-CBN News Facebook page (facebook.com/abscbnnews) at 4 p.m.
“Bistado M.O. (Modus Operandi)” aims to not only revisit crime cases and scams covered by ABS-CBN’s metro and justice reporters, but also advise viewers on how to avoid being victimized. Hosted by veteran police reporters Zyann Ambrosio and Jeff Caparas, “Bistado M.O.” streams at 4:30 p.m. Saturdays on the ABS-CBN News YouTube channel and 4:30 p.m. Sundays on the ABS-CBN News Facebook page.
Finally, in “Patrol ng Pilipino: Playlist,” ABS-CBN journalists take the lead in presenting a mini-news magazine that will showcase vertical video stories originally released by “Patrol ng Pilipino,” the news organization’s mobile journalism initiative.
Each reporter hosts a compilation of content curated by concept, ranging from on-thespot coverage and explainers to food and lifestyle features. Among the presenters are “Patrol ng Pilipino” mainstays Doris Bigornia, Michael Delizo and Krishnan.
“Patrol ng Pilipino: Playlist” drops every Sunday at 11 a.m. on the “Patrol ng Pilipino” (facebook.com/patrolngpilipino) and ABS-CBN News Facebook pages. It is then available on the ABS-CBN News YouTube channel Tuesdays at 6 p.m.
