CNN Philippines has launched a daily program titled The Source—an interview format that combines the headlines with in-depth conversations with the newsmakers themselves. The network chose senior anchor and correspondent Pinky Webb to handle the program.
The new program also offers analysis from subject matter experts.
“The Source offers a fresh way of providing the news that will benefit our viewers,” shared Pinky Webb, “the thorough discussions and analysis will let them understand the impact of stories on their daily lives.”
A key feature of the program is “In Focus” which takes a closer look at topics that are inspiring or thought-provoking.
“The Source gives us an opportunity to delve deeper into the issues that are most important to our viewers. It’s also an opportunity to go beyond the headlines, as well as listen and engage with our viewers through social media,” the network’s executive vice president and managing editor Armie Jarin-Bennett said of the show.
The Source airs daily at 9 a.m. on CNN Philippines Channel 9 Free TV and livestreaming on cnnphilippines.com/video.
