QUEZON CITY, Dec. 7 (PIA) -- "Like Pinas," the Philippine Information Agency's (PIA) latest public-spirited, infotainment television show bagged the Anak TV Seal on Friday during the awarding ceremony held at the Soka Gakkai Building in Quezon City.
PIA Director-General Harold Clavite, on behalf of Like Pinas, received the seal of approval from the People's Television Network for being a television show certified by advocacy organization Anak TV, to be watched by kids even with little or no adult supervision.
Among the PTV programs that received the seal of approval are
The PIA-homegrown television program used to air over PTV during the evaluation period, but has now moved to GMA News TV, airing every Sunday at 3 pm Like Pinas is now on its third episode airing on the news and public affairs programming channel of GMA Network Inc.
"It's a great honor to be given an award by Anak TV. Naipakita natin na napakahalaga ng role ng broadcast media. Sa government naman, ay nakikita natin na, sa likod ng mga negatibong balita at hindi masyadong magandang [pangyayari] katulad ng mga krimen at pamumulitika, ay nais natin ipakita sa ating mga kababayan, lalo na sa mga kabataan, na marami pang mas magagandang kwento at magagandang bagay na nangyayari sa buong Pilipinas. Ito ang dahilan kaya natin binuo itong Like Pinas," Clavite said.
"Patuloy ang paggawa natin ng napakaraming kwento dito sa Like Pinas at aabangan 'yan ng ating mga kababayan. Ang PIA teams sa buong Pilipinas ay puong puso na maghahatid ng mga kwento tungkol sa napakaraming magagandang bagay na nangyayari sa iba't ibang komunidad."
The now iconic Anak TV seal aims to help parents and caregivers make informed decisions about which television shows are right for their children.
It adorns several television programs that proudly display the seal of approval from the public attesting to their child-sensitivity. (PIA-NCR)
