‘Byaheng DO30’ with Mayor Inday Duterte rolls on

Tomorrow, GMA Davao airs Byaheng DO30, the newest magazine show that trains the spotlight on the most-talked about city in the country this year, Davao.     

At the helm of the show is Davao City Mayor Inday Sara Duterte, The show takes a closer look at the projects and programs of Davao City under her watch, with each episode giving viewers access to the process of accomplishing her administration’s goals for Dabawenyos.

The new TV show is a spinoff of “Byaheng Du30”—the 30-day caravan composed of 30 volunteers organized by Mayor Inday and her mother, Elizabeth Zimmerman Duterte. The caravan was utilized during the campaign for the candidacy of now President Rodrigo Duterte.

Byaheng DO30 also sees the return of Mayor Inday as a Kapuso. The incumbent mayor was one of the segments hosts of GMA Davao morning program Una Ka Bai.

“I am happy to be back here in GMA and to work on a project that I have started months ago,” shares Mayor Inday. “This time, with Byaheng DO30, we wish to show our programs and plans for Davao and the Dabawenyos—how we intend to bring basic services to the communities through our projects and how we hope to bring development and meaningful change to the lives of the people and to our entire city.”

INDAY IS A KAPUSO. Davao City Mayor Inday Duterte returns to GMA Davao and hosts a magazine show that takes a closer look at the initiatives and projects she spearheaded in the city.
GMA Regional TV Department Officer-in-Charge Oliver Amoroso also expressed his excitement over this reunion. “Mayor Inday has been a loyal Kapuso ever since. We are glad that she is back via Byaheng DO30. GMA will support any endeavor that promotes the best in and of the regions, especially Davao, to all Filipinos and we believe that this show perfectly complements this goal,” he says.

“We are all excited of this new program since this will further put Davao on the map as one of the premier hubs in the country,” says GMA Davao Station Manager. 

The latest Kapuso show will capture the 30 major projects and programs Mayor Inday intends to accomplish in three years—thus, DO30. All these projects and programs respond to the 10 priority sectors, which include poverty alleviation; infrastructure development; solid waste management; health; education; agriculture; tourism; transportation planning and traffic management; peace and order; and disaster risk and mitigation.

Furthermore, Byaheng DO30 will give the public updates on the activities of various city departments. The program will also highlight and explain the ordinances of the Davao City council led by Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte.

A window to the City of Davao, Byaheng DO30 will provide viewers a glimpse of some of the note-worthy places, products, and industries that have contributed to the local economic growth, bringing fame and pride to Dabawenyos in the process. 

Mayor Inday will also feature exceptional individuals who have made an impact in the local community to become sources of inspiration among Dabawenyos.

Byaheng DO30 kicks off its adventures at 8 a.m. tomorrow and will air every Sunday thereafter on GMA Davao.
