Anak TV honors the country’s child-sensitive and family-friendly TV programs as well as Makabata stars — the most trusted and admired celebrities — in ceremonies to be held at the Soka Gakkai Auditorium in Quezon City on December 8.

Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Nestor U. Torre, noted film and stage director and TV critic, is this year’s recipient of the special Anak TV Broadcasters’ Award for his significant contribution in espousing the agenda of child sensitive, quality television programming.


This year’s Anak TV seal-winning programs are from ABS-CBN national and regional stations, GMA News TV and GMA Network, Net 25, UNTV, TV5, Zoe, Studio 23, PTV and IBC.


The Makabata Hall of Fame welcomes five personalities  who have consistently topped the annual surveys for the past seven straight years — GMA Network’s Mike Enriquez and Mel Tiangco and ABS-CBN’s Julius Babao, Korina Sanchez and Gary Valenciano.

Selected by the national jury as the most “credible, wholesome and worth emulating by the youth” are 11 male and female TV personalities led by news and public affairs anchors Ted Failon and Jessica Soho.

Other honorees are Ryan Agoncillo, Gerald Anderson, Kim Atienza, Arnold Clavio, John Lloyd Cruz, Noli de Castro, Luis Manzano, Coco Martin, Piolo Pascual, Vic Sotto, Kim Chiu, Anne Curtis, Karen Davila, Sarah Geronimo, Toni Gonzaga, Angel Locsin, Vicky Morales, Charo Santos, Judy Ann Santos and Bernadette Sembrano.

The top 10 favorite programs of Filipino households as polled by Anak TV are: 1) “TV Patrol World”; 2) “100 Days to Heaven”; 3) “Eat Bulaga”; 4) “Showtime”; 5) “24 Oras”; 6) “Amaya”; 7) “Budoy”; 8) “Maalaala Mo Kaya”; 9) “Matanglawin”; 10) “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.”

Hosting the event is Mikee Cojuangco Jaworski, official spokesperson of Anak TV. Guests include Vice President Jejomar Binay, former Presidents Fidel Ramos and Joseph Estrada,  Representative Manny Pacquiao, Governor Vilma Santos, Superstar Nora Aunor and Susan Roces.
