CNN Philippines’ news programs

A new lineup of news programs is on CNN Philippines. President Armie Jarin-Bennett of CNN Philippines and Nine Media Corporation said the news programs demonstrate the network’s commitment to providing news the audience can use and trust. 

“Trust is earned, it is not given.  Our goal is to continue to earn the trust of more viewers in this country and beyond,” says Jarin-Bennett.

Kicking off the year, the network launched its second newscast in Tagalog on Feb. 6. Anchored by senior correspondent Ruth Cabal, Newsroom Ngayon airs weekdays at 10:00 a.m.  The program is also the first CNN Philippines show that airs live on Facebook given the network’s increasing footprint on digital platforms.

Newsroom Weekend, anchored by Mai Rodriguez, airs 12 p.m. every Saturday to complement the 6 p.m. weekend newscast.

On March 27, News Night at 6 p.m. replaces Network News. The flagship news program of CNN Philippines promises to go “above and beyond the headlines.” Anchored by Chief Correspondent Pia Hontiveros, it will dig deeper into any news story, offering in-depth analysis, discussions and perspective on current issues and events.

In addition, Hontiveros also anchors Global Newsroom at 3 p.m. as Claire Celdran returns to New Day replacing Amelyn Veloso who is on medical leave.

Joining Celdran on New Day are original anchors Claudine Trillo and Andrei Felix.   Host of The Service Road James Deakin joins them very Friday while Real Talk host Christine Jacob and Leading Women host Angel Jacob, fills-in for Trillo when she goes on maternity leave.

Political Insider is the latest CNN Philippines Current Affairs program.
