Filipinos abroad can now have access not only to national newscasts but also news programs from the different regions as GMA News TV International – the international news channel of GMA Network – strengthens its commitment of bringing the latest, most credible and most comprehensive news from home.   Complementing the channel’s flagship newscast State of the Nation with Jessica Soho, which recently won a Silver Screen Award from the esteemed US International Film and Video Festival, Balitang Amianan of GMA North Central Luzon, Balitang Bisdak of GMA Central Visayas, and Testigo of GMA Southern Mindanao are now part of GMA News TV International’s interesting line-up of programs.   According to GMA Vice President and Head of International Operations Joseph T. Francia, these programs are meant “to provide Filipinos overseas, specifically those who come from the provinces, a stronger and deeper connection with what’s happening back home.”   News from Northern Luzon will be broadcasted straight from Dagupan to different parts of the world via Balitang Amianan. Trademarked in GMA News and Public Affairs’ fair and responsible reportage, Balitang Amianan is anchored by veteran journalist and former radio commentator Jorge Guerrero. Guerrero is backed by the program’s pool of correspondents as they strive to meet the viewers’ need for truthful and credible news from the region.   Meanwhile, Cebuanos living outside the Philippines may now watch the latest local news from the Visayas Region via Balitang Bisdak. Anchored by popular tri-media personality Bobby “Super Bob” Nalzaro and co-anchored by women/children’s right and media advocate Atty. Rose Versoza, Balitang Bisdak covers both national and local issues relevant not only to Cebuanos, but also neighboring provinces such as Bohol and some parts of Negros Oriental and Eastern Visayas.   Last but certainly not least, Testigo Davao brings to worldwide viewers the freshest and most relevant news from Davao City and other key areas in Southern Mindanao. Anchored by former national correspondent Tek Ocampo together with hard-hitting commentator Jun Digamon, the program aims to empower its audience by delivering relevant information on the latest news, hottest social issues and human interest stories.   Balitang Amianan, Balitang Bisdak, and Testigo are now available via GMA News TV International in Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Guam, Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Canada.
