Quezon City, PHILIPPINES – (December 31, 2015) Yearly, UNTV Life looks back at the events, big stories, public services and people that shaped history in a year.
This year is no different as it presents Repaso 2015 Year-End Special Presentation,albeit a news-and-rescue effort that is even bigger than the previous year.
Repaso 2015 Yearend Report this year features audio-visual presentations about the reportorial team’s coverage of disasters and calamities, health issues, the historic APEC Summit, BBL deliberations, transportation issues, President Benigno Aquino III’s last SONA, pre-election issues, and the Mamasapano case.
Prominent social pundits invited to lend their insights about the year that was include Prof. Josephine Aguilar Placido and Prof. Eleonor Briones.
Other than the presentation of AVPs, part of the program was the ceremonial deployment of all rescue units nationwide led by UNTV’s Gerry Panghulan, giving of charities to the less fortunate.
“UNTV Tulong Muna Bago Balita” is the news-and-rescue initiative of Kuya Daniel Razon, Chairman and CEO of BMPI-UNTV.
Meanwhile, among the invited performers include ASOP TV host Richard Reynoso, The Voysing, The Bueno Sisters, The Voice Philippines contestant Philippe Go, and social media sensation Myka Cloma.
The hashtag #UNTVRepaso2015 climbed the Philippines Trends as early as 8:30 pm, peaking at No. 2 spot and lasted for 12 hours, the next day (Friday, January 1, 2016). The hashtag registered over 45K tweets until it exited the trends list.
From 8 pm to 12 midnight, Repaso 2015 was hosted by Atty. Reggie Tongol and William Thio.
As the time clocked 12 midnight, Kuya Daniel entered the rescue command center and joined Atty. Regie and William to host the special presentation.
When asked about his vision for the station in 2016, Kuya Daniel stressed that he wants to continue what UNTV has started, further improve and expand the coverage of public service.
“Kung ano ang naumpisahan, mas maimprove, mas mapalawak pa natin, [and] hopefully itong 2016 na ito, magpapasimula ang UNTV News International,” said Kuya Daniel.
(What we have started, we want to improve and expand [these initiatives]. Hopefully this 2016, the new UNTV News International would be launched.)
As Kuya Daniel added and elaborated among other projects that he want to launch in 2016, the veteran broadcast journalist said that he hopes UNTV “will start a new chapter of public service.”
