GMA Regional TV Live! will also give viewers the day’s weather with “Panahon Karon’” to keep them updated. At the same time, Kapuso viewers are sure to enjoy special features produced by RTV’s correspondents and video journalists all over the country. The morning program is produced by the same teams behind the top-rating and award-winning newscast, GMA Regional TV Balitang Bisdak.

“Amid the health crisis we are facing today, we remain optimistic and continue to instill hope and inspiration among our viewers,” says GMA Regional TV Vice President and Head Oliver Amoroso. “While GMA Regional TV Live! has been in the pipelines as early as last year, we see this launch at this point as another opportunity to further serve our Kapuso in the regions by giving them more reasons to wake up each morning and start fresh. With years of delivering local news that matters, we are taking advantage of technology to bring more Serbisyong Totoo to our viewers in Central and Eastern Visayas. We invite all our Kapusong Bisdak to join us in our latest endeavor. Makakaasa po kayo na ang GMA Network at GMA Regional TV ay patuloy ang pagiging buong puso para sa Pilipino sa bawat sulok ng Pilipinas,” he ends.
