TV5’s late night evening newscast program “Aksyon Tonite” delivers an even more compelling take on the day’s top headlines and stories with seasoned broadcast journalist and renowned news personality Ed Lingao making his much-anticipated television comeback by taking the helm as one of the program’s main anchors.
Ed brings with him almost 30 years of unparalleled experience in field reporting, investigative journalism and news production, as well as several distinctions for his work from international and local award-giving bodies alike – including, among many others, the 2010 Marshall Macluhan Award from the Embassy of Canada, the Rotary Club Journalist of the Year 2011, and the Red Cross Humanitarian Award for 2011.
Moreover, Ed’s impressive news background also includes memorable coverage ranging from the police beat to topics on human rights, politics and the presidency. Ed is likewise very much known for his in-depth coverage on several conflicts here and abroad, such as in Southern Philippines, Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor.
With Ed joining “Aksyon Tonite”, viewers can expect an even more competitive late night evening newscast every weeknight at 10:00PM on TV5, as he ultimately forms a fresh, formidable and game-changing trio with the program’s current anchors, Cheryl Cosim and Jove Francisco.
