Ryan Agoncillo was awarded the Favorite Anak TV Makabata Star for being a good influence among children surveyed, while Talentadong Pinoy was a Top TV Program Household Favorite. Mustard TV (a 30-minute children’s show that teaches kids about Jesus and the Bible), The World Exposed with Bishop Chito Tagle and 12 other kids’ shows previously aired on TV5 were among the programs given an Anak TV seal.
TV5 also reaped four trophies at the 19th Golden Dove Awards by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP), which included Talentadong Pinoy (Best TV Games/Variety Program), Lokomoko U (Best TV Comedy Program), USI: Under Special Investigation (Best TV Documentary Program) and Paolo Bediones (Best TV Documentary Program Host).
Among the Kapatid wins, the recognition given to Paolo Bediones as exemplary host of a documentary program earned him badge of integrity after shifting to journalism from entertainment. “Personally this is a very, very important milestone for me. Ito ang una kong taon bilang mamamahayag. Kaya ang pagkilala pong ito ay mahalaga po sa akin. Maraming, maraming salamat, KBP,” expressed Paolo in his acceptance speech at the award ceremony held in Tagaytay City.
Meanwhile, TV5 earned its first Philippine Quill Award of Merit through News5’s back-to-school public service project Oplan Sigla sa Skwela for excellence in Communication Management in Economic, Social and Environmental Division. Led by News5 Public Service head Sherryl Yao, the project aimed at teaching pupils of good hygiene practices when the school year opened last June.
The 24th Star Awards for Television also recognized Vic Sotto as Best Variety Game Show Host for Who Wants To Be a Millionaire, and the defunct teen program Lipgloss as Best Youth-Oriented Program.
