Pilipinas Today unveiled plans to launch various projects including a complete media and information offering from a website geared up for metaverse and Web3 adoption to vlog and podcast hosting, digital shows, info shorts, and fact-checking pages.
With such off-beat, tickle-your-funny-bones posts interspersed with showbiz, business, crimes, sports, politics, and world news, the up-and-coming Pilipinas Today social media outfit has been creating a lot of buzz.
Powered by SARTiNE’s well-established digital reach, Pilipinas Today—the catch-all banner of offshoot pages like Radyo Pilipinas Today and Pilipinas Today QC—is ready for a grand launch in 2023.
With veteran media personalities behind it, Pilipinas Today is seen to bring digital multi-media to a new level not only as a news and entertainment platform but one geared toward fighting the proliferation of fake news.
“Our socmed pages, collectively, are serving, at the moment, as the tip of the iceberg of what Pilipinas Today would eventually be. It would be exciting and fun, with bits and pieces of everything local and global, but with a distinctive Filipino flair,” Pat Junio, concept manager, told Manila Standard.
“Coding the website is nearly complete and we’re already cobbling up all the necessary equipment so everything will blast off without a hitch. Needless to say, we’re hiring,” Junio said.
SARTiNE chief executive officer Renesar A. Deunida welcomed Pilipinas Today as a client, with his company expected to provide the media start-up the technological muscle, innovation and the years of experience in mass media.
“Pilipinas Today could not have chosen a better time to compete with well-established information brands. What YouTube and the other socmed platforms have taught us is that content is king and that anyone can be the star of his or her own show.”
According to Deunida, digital ad revenues in Asia-Pacific had been forecasted to increase by six percent in 2023.
“Technology is the great equalizer, and we’re bringing that into the table for Pilipinas Today. I’m pretty excited about the possibilities for an outfit that has so many talented and dedicated people on board,” Deunida said.
