It produces news and infotainment programs for all GMA Network and GMA News TV owned and affiliated regional television stations GMA Regional TV radio stations of Super Radyo DZBB 594 kHz Mega Manila and Radio GMA Super Radyo stations Nationwide, and internationally through GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International. GMA News and Public Affairs is currently headed by Marissa Flores.Luchi Cruz-Valdez.It is headquartered at the Ground Floor of GMA Network Center in Quezon City. Contents[show]History EditThe GMA News division traces its origin from the Republic Broadcasting System, established by Robert Stewart in 1959. Programming of its radio station, DZBB depended on mostly on news reports. The station covered the eruption of Mt. Hibok-Hibok in 1951, and the election and death of former President Ramon Magsaysay. While RBS Channel 7 was established in 1961, it was in the 1970s that GMA became one of the most-watched television news source in the country. In 1983, Channel 7 was the first to break the news of Ninoy Aquino's death, and later would be the only television station to broadcast his funeral. The channel also became the first station to broadcast the Ramos-Enrile break-away that led to the People Power Revolt.In-1998,GMA teamed-up with the Philippine Daily Inquirer to produce election-coverage.Its-flagship-newscast,Saksi,won-the-1999 Asian Television Awards and 2002 New York Festival awards for Best Newscast. In 2006, GMA News was praised by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for its news coverage, and said that it was the reason for the network's high ratings. In the 2006 SWS Media Trust survey, GMA News garnered 60% of public trust, second only to rival ABS-CBN with 68%. But a similar Pulse Asia survey shows that GMA News is the more credible in the country and to key demographics. GMA News became a pioneer in local television news in many ways. GMA was one of the pioneers of women in broadcast journalism. Tina Monzon-Palma was one of the first women co-anchors when she first presented News at Seven, one of the most-watched news programs in the 1970s and Helen Vela was the first woman to anchor news in Tagalog for GMA Balita, and Mel Tiangco was the first late-night solo anchor for Frontpage. GMA was the first to broadcast an hourly news program, GMA News Live which is known today as the GMA Flash Report, and the first station to use a ticker for breaking news and traffic information. GMA News was also the first to use Electronic News Gathering Vans in the country in 1995. In 2000 won at the 11 the KBP Golden Dove Awards the Best TV News program in Metro Manila Saksi In 2004, it regularly began to use Satellite News Gathering facilities to reach more remote areas. It also covered major events in the country, such as the 1995 World Youth Day, 2003 World Meeting of Families, and 2000 Today.GMA’s Public Affairs division was established in 1987 when Tina Monzon-Palma, then head of GMA News recognized that a 30 minute newscast was not adequate and sufficient to inform the general Filipino public on what is happening to the recently established Aquino government after the historic People Power Revolution in February 1986. It started with five news personnel including Marissa La Torre Flores (now handles GMA News and Public Affairs as senior vice president) and held office inside the cameramen’s locker room before moving into the state-of-the-art GMA Network Center with no experience, equipment, camera and an improvised set broadcasting at the old GMA building in Edsa with only a passion to work attitude. Now with more than 500 news personnel—here and abroad—and producing 16 of the most awarded programs on Philippine television today.The public affairs program Weekend With Velez, was the first network-produced program on GMA, afterward renamed to Velez This Week and was hosted by Jose Mari Velez. Later that year it was joined with other public affairs shows such as Firing Line with Teddy Benigno (later on hosted by Oscar Orbos); View Point with Dong Puno; Straight from the Shoulder hosted by Louie Beltran and The Probe Team by Che-Che Lazaro and Issues and Answers hosted by Art BorjalFrom a makeshift and improvised set, the once GMA News garnered several honors and recognitions from local and international award-giving bodies, including two gold medals in the New York Festivals and their first Peabody Award in 1999, one of the most distinguished merit in the broadcast industry, the only one awarded to an Asian country. The first Peabody was given for Kidney for Sale, an investigative work on the selling of kidneys in a depressed area along the coast of Manila Bay. The award also recognizes Marissa Flores as the executive producer and a team of producers, writers, directors and reporters, as well as Jessica Soho,Michelle Seva-Recto,Jay Taruc,Leogarda Sanchez and Rowel Cornejo,Melchor Quintos and Gregg Gonzales.In 2000 won at the 11th KBP Golden Dove Awards in the best TV Public Affairs program I-Witness.When longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga! celebrated its silver anniversary in 2004, Public Affairs co-produced Eat Bulaga history with noontime show's production company Television and Production Exponents, Inc. or TAPE, Inc., because one of News and Public Affairs personalities Mr. Arnold Clavio was a contestant in a former segment of noontime show. He hosted it and was co-hosted by his Unang Hirit co-host, Ms. Rhea Santos.Coinciding with its 20th anniversary in broadcasting excellence, GMA News and Public Affairs aired a documentary entitled 20: Dalawampung Taon ng GMA Public Affairs (20: Twenty Years of GMA Public Affairs) on October 28, 2007.In 2010, The I-Witness won its 2nd Peabody Award. The show is the documentary of Kara David.On 2013, GMA News TV documentary program Reel Time received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award at an awards ceremony held at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. The show's episode was "Salat".On December 9, 2003 the Philippine House of Representatives’ 12th Congress commended GMA News and Public Affairs through Resolution 787 authored by Rep. Rodolfo Plaza for its efforts in uplifting the standards of the Philippine broadcast industry by receiving the first Peabody Award gold medal for television news awarded to an Asian country in the sole lineal brand holdover from its Kapuso-Anchor tenure.Personalities from other networks, such as Pinky Webb  GMA-Weekday-NewscastEditUnang-HiritGMA-News-UpdateGMA-Breaking-News24-Oras-Sa-Umaga24-Oras-Sa-Tanghali24-Oras-Primetime24-Oras-Late-NightSaksi-Sa-UmagaSaksi-Sa-TanghaliSaksi-GMA-Headline-BalitaSaksi-Liga-Ng-KatotohananGMA-Weekend-NewscastEditUnang-HiritGMA-Weekend-UpdateGMA-Breaking-NewsSaksi-Weekend-MorningSaksi-Weekend-NoontimeSaksi-Weekend-PrimetimeSaksi-Weekend-Late-Night24-Oras-Weekend-Morning24-Oras-Weekend-Noontme24-Oras-Weekend-Primetime24-Oras-Weekend-Late-NightGNTV-Weekday-NewscastEditBalitanghali-Sa-UmagaBalitanghali-Sa-TanghaliBalitanghali-Sa-HaponBalitanghali-Sa-GabiBalita-Pilipinas-MorningBalita-Pilipinas-NoontimeBalita-Pilipinas-AfternoonBalita-Pilipinas-PrimetimeBalita-Pilipinas-EveningNews to GoNews-TV-LiveNews-TV-QRTState of the NationGNTV-Weekend-NewscastEditBalitanghal-Weekend-MorningBalitanghali-Weekend-NoontimeBalitanghali-Weekend-AfternoonBalitanghali-Weekend-EveningBalita-Pilipinas-Weekend-MorningBalita-Pilipinas-Weekend-NoontimeBalita-Pilipinas-Weekend-AfternoonBalita-Pilipinas-Weekend-PrimetimeBalita-Pilipinas-Weekend-EveningNews to Go-WeekendNews-TV-Live-WeekendNews-TV-QRT-WeekendState of the Nation-WeekendNews-Anchors EditJoe MarasiganCarlo MarasiganMike EnriquezArnold ClavioHowie SeverinoMark SalazarRaffy TimaIvan Mayrina Mel TiangcoVicky MoralesJessica SohoKara DavidMariz UmaliRhea SantosConnie SisonPia ArcangelPops FernandezVina MoralesZsa-Zsa PadillaLuchi Cruz-ValdezAnne CurtisJasmine CurtisKarylle PadillaMaine MendozaPatrcia TumulakMitzi BorromeoPinky WebbPia HontiverosClaire CeldranMai RodriguezMenchu MacapagalNews-ReportersEditCesar ApolinarioNelson CanlasSteve DailisanCedric CastilloJohn ConsultaChino GastonJiggy ManicadIvan MayrinaJoseph MorongDeo BugawisanGrace dela PenaLei AlvizRuth CabalKara DavidMaki PulidoPia ArcangelSandra AguinaldoTheresa AndradaSusan EnriquezRosetti RiveraMarisol AbdurahmanAubrey CarampelAnne CurtisJasmine CurtisKarylle PadillaLuchi Cruz-ValdezLia Mañalac-CastlloPat FernandezPinky WebbClaire CeldranPia HontiverosMai RodriguezAmelyn VelosoMenchu MacapagalNicolette HensonMitzi BorromeoTina Panganiban-PerezMicaela PapaValerie TanDante PerelloSaleema RefranBernadette ReyesRida ReyesLala RoqueTricia ZafraCata TibayanJamie SantosRhea SantosJam SisanteConnie SisonOscar Oida Mark SalazarLhar SantiagoEmil SumangilIan CruzJay TarucJP SorianoRaffy TimaArnold ClavioDano TingcungcoChino TrinidadJun VeneracionMark Zambrano Kadenang KristalFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaKadenang KristalGenre DramaCreated by Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) Inc.Developed by Gina Marissa TagasaDirected by Gina AlajarStarring Amy AustriaMaricel LaxaRio LocsinJackie Lou BlancoTeresa LoyzagaTheme music composer Joey de LeonVic SottoOpening theme "Kadenang Kristal" by Aiza SeguerraCountry of origin PhilippinesOriginal language(s) FilipinoNo. of episodes 268ProductionExecutive producer(s) Malou Choa-FagarWilma GalvanteRunning time 30 minutesReleaseOriginal network GMA NetworkPicture format 480i SDTVOriginal release July 31, 1995 – August 9, 1996Kadenang Kristal (lit.
