/ 01:50 AM February 13, 2016

Anak TV will honor this February the choices made by thousands of Filipino jurors after a year-long assessment of television programs. The association of TV networks will also recognize personalities selected as worthy of emulation by children by inducting them into the Roster of Makabata Stars.

The iconic seal on Philippine television, Anak TV, is bestowed by parents, teachers, NGOs and other sectors of society on television programs which, in their estimate, are wholesome and child-safe. It is a seal not found anywhere else in the world, Anak TV being a movement that flourishes only in the Philippines.

A total of 123 programs were declared family-firendly after nine months of  tedious and thorough evaluation covering several screening sessions nationwide. INC TV leads the winners by taking home 23 seals.  ABS-CBN national and regional stations takes home 20 seals; Net 25 receives 17; GMA News TV and GMA Network receive a total of 21. UNTV receives 16, Light Network receives 11, PTV brings home 10, while TV 5 gets 5.


To be elevated into the Makabata Hall of Fame are Ted Failon, Kim Atienza, Kim Chiu and Toni Gonzaga, for having consistently topped annual surveys for the past eight years. They join Gary Valenciano, Mike Enriquez, Mel Tiangco, Julius Babao, Korina Sanchez, Jessica Soho, Sarah Geronimo, Bernadette Sembrano, Angel Locsin and Karen Davila.


The annual Boto Ko ‘To survey winners will be feted by broadcast colleagues, media and NGOs cheering the awardees. Selected this year by the national jury as the most “credible, wholesome and worth emulating by the youth” are (male) Boy Abunda, Atom Araullo, Drew Arellano, Dingdong Dantes, Noli de Castro, Enrique Gil, Luis Manzano, Coco Martin, Vhong Navarro, James Reid, Alden Richards, Vic Sotto, and Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle;
