Nandito si Dino Apolonio? Iyon. Ang PTV ay magdi-digital na siya, so ibig sabihin ‘pag nag-digital siya mayroon siyang isang digital channel and then mayroon siyang mga apat o tatlo, tatlo hanggang apat na sub-channels.
Now, kung mapapansin ninyo po iyong Reuters news wire, Agence France Presse, Xinhua News Agency, pinuntahan nila—iyon oh, kasama si Gigi nung pumunta doon, si Louie. Iyong mga wire services ng ibang bansa, mayroon silang sariling newscast studio, okay. So, ang sabi ko nga kay Gigi noong nag-usap kami about the future of the Philippine News Agency kasi nga gusto nga nating maging relevant iyong PNA, we want to give it a shot in the arm. Sabi ko sa kanila kailangan magkaroon ng sariling news cast at television platform ang Philippine News Agency.
So therefore kailangan nilang magtayo ng sarili nilang studio sa loob ng PNA dito po sa Visayas at doon sila magre-record ng kanilang newscast. Parang Reuters din na may newscast, at the same time puwede na silang mag-record noong audio news doon din; which will be uploaded dito sa website. And since magdi-digital na nga ang PTV, hindi ko na sasabihin kung kailangan, kasi si Dino mayroon siyang sorpresa. One channel doon po sa digital platform ng PTV will be assigned to Philippine News Agency. (applause)
So, we’re really looking forward, we want the whole world to know and we want our international partners also – China, Australia and Singapore, lahat po ng tumutulong sa atin sa training, we want them to know that we are serious in making Philippine News Agency the number one news agency here in the country, at it’s the only one also. So iyon po, maraming salamat. Congratulation sa PNA at sa International Press Center (IPC). (applause).
