TV5 Brings Local News Programming: "Aksyon Dabaw"


The vibrant and festive city of Davao recently spearheaded the much-anticipated nationwide launch of News5’s unified ‘one-brand’ line-up of news programs as TV5 Davao finally introduced its very own local 30-minute daily news program, “Aksyon Dabaw”, which airs weekdays at 5:30PM. 

DavaoeƱos were the first to actually experience the brand new campaign of News5—TV5’s News and Information arm—dubbed “Ang Bagong Puwersa sa Pagbabalita. Handang Tumugon, Anumang Oras, Anumang Panahon”, when the ‘aksyon’-packed and fast-paced “Aksyon Dabaw” made its official local television debut with main anchors Mikey Aportadera and Gem Avacena-Arenas forming a formidable tandem of main anchors delivering the most relevant and updated local news of the day.

These main anchors are steadily developing a credible image and following among DavaoeƱos for having been a long time part of the Kapatid Network. Mikey, is also known as a professional triathlete in Davao, while Gem is also the acting Desk Editor of TV5 Davao.

 “Aksyon Dabaw” also features various special segments that provide viewers with more exclusive and informative news content. These include “Today in History” and “Aksyon Weather”, both with Radyo5 stalwart anchor Robert Teo at the helm; “Aksyon Probinsya” which tackles the most interesting stories centered on Cebu City; and “Health Watch” with the renowned Davao Doctor’s Hospital taking the spotlight. And, finally, rounding up the “Aksyon Dabaw” team are sterling local field reporters Paolo Anota, Mike Pasco, Irene dela Cruz and Lerma Alingalan.

News5’s recent nationwide launch of its new ‘one-brand’ news programs kicked-off with the morning news program “Aksyon sa Umaga” (at 5:00AM), the noontime newscast “Askyon sa Tanghali” (at 12:00NN), its flagship weeknight primetime newscast “Aksyon” (at 6:00PM), and the late-night news wrap-up “Askyon Tonite” (at 10:00PM).
