GMA Regional TV further strengthens its presence in North Central Luzon as it becomes available to more viewers in the said region.
The regional arm of media giant GMA Network stays true to its campaign, “local news matters,” by bringing its award-winning and top-rating unified weekday newscast “GMA Regional TV Balitang Amianan” and unified weekday morning show “Mornings with GMA Regional TV” closer to Kapuso viewers as these can now be accessed in Zambales, Aurora, Isabela, and Cagayan Valley.

“We are proud to share with our Kapuso viewers that their favorite local programs are now available in more areas in North Central Luzon,” said GMA Regional TV and Synergy First Vice President and Head Oliver Victor Amoroso. “This year, we remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver news and information to our Kapuso all over the country. We began with the launch of our newest flagship local weekday newscast in Bicol—GMA Regional TV Balitang Bicolandia—last February. Now, we have ‘GMA Regional TV Balitang Amianan’ and ‘Mornings with GMA Regional TV’ being aired in more areas in North Central Luzon. We are not stopping here as we continue to serve local communities, through our local programs and various initiatives, all over the Philippines,” he added.
