Catholic Media Network joins election coverage

Davao City (9 May) -- “As one network, feeling and thinking network, we are religiously abiding to the realization of the church’s dream people’s actively participating in the election, particularly in helping them coming up with guidelines in choosing the right candidates”.

The Catholic Media Network proved true to its word in uniting people these coming elections through its latest segment “Isang Tanong, Isang Sagot”, aired daily over CMN’s Veritas Pilipinas.

It is a news and public affairs program hooked nationwide that provides senatorial candidates the chance to answer questions from the participating member stations of Veritas Pilipinas from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

Another two minutes is given to the candidates to say their motives in running, and their platforms of government.

“As one network, feeling and thinking network, we are religiously abiding to the realization of the church’s dream people’s actively participating in the election, particularly in helping them coming up with guidelines in choosing the right candidates,” said Fr. Francis Lucas of CMN.

For a wider reach and extensive coverage for the May 14 synchronized elections, Catholic Media Networks has joined forces with GMA-7, Inquirer, AMA Computer College, and Smart, among others.

And in preparation for the coverage, CMN schedules a day of briefing and workshop in Manila to be attended by its member stations.

The briefing and workshop will be tackling important components of the coverage, like news writing for coverage reports, and some important regulations and guidelines from the Commission on Elections, COMELEC.

Catholic Media Network has 50 members, 33 of which are participating in the Veritas Pilipinas program, giving weekly reports to the program.

The hook-up program is made possible through Dream Satellite.

Fr. Lucas is very happy with the endeavors of the Catholic Media Network.

We keep on thinking how to improve our services to the throngs of listeners.

“Let’s face it, despite the presence and availability of other mediums, despite the global age, but undeniably, radio is still the most reachable and accessible medium of communication”, he explained. (PIA XI and DXHM) [top]
