On its 20th year, ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, is celebrating its success as local television’s pioneer in airing a 24-hour network that is wholly devoted to news.
To mark the milestone, the network held a luncheon for ANC’s top executives and anchors, where ABS-CBN Integrated News & Current Affairs head Ging Reyes announced the launch of the ANC’s new HD channel.
Reyes said this new development will cement “ANC’s position as the gold standard and primary source of Philippine news and analysis for the country’s business and political leaders.”
She added, “This is what ANC has continuously strived to be: the best, most reliable, and prestigious English language, all-news channel in the Philippines. There is still a lot more in store for ANC, as we mark twenty years this coming May. Stay tuned for these exciting developments,” she said before invited guests at Restaurant 9501 on March 8.
Gracing the luncheon were ANC’s most respected anchors who are set to host two of the channel’s newest shows.
Leading the guests were Teddy Locsin Jr. and Prof. Prospero de Vera, who now headlines NoFilter@ANC. Also present was award-winning business journalist Cathy Yang, who does in-depth interviews with executives and entrepreneurs on The Boss.
Also seen were the anchormen of Mornings@anc, ANC’s fast-paced, business morning news and infotainment program, namely by David Celdran, Ginger Conejero, Gigi Grande, and Paolo Abrera. Joining them were fresh faces and news reporters Christian Esguerra, and sports host and athlete, Gretchen Ho.
