Part of GMA News and Public Affairs’ move to fortify its stance as the most trusted news organization in the Philippines, all its regional stations nationwide will adopt the title of the national newscast ‘24 Oras’ plus the name of the coverage area.
Thus, Balitang Amianan, the undisputed regional news program in North Central Luzon for more than six straight years since its first airing in 2008, has followed suit and carried 24 Oras North and Central Luzon as its new title!

This major re-branding is part of 24 Oras' re-launch last Nov. 10, with veteran broadcasters Mike Enriquez and Mel Tianco welcoming Vicky Morales as their newest co-anchor.
For 24 Oras North Central Luzon, CJ Torida and Joyce Segui remain as main anchors, backed up by its new roster of field reporters.

"We are re-introducing our regional newscasts not only to give our audience an improved visual experience but more importantly to also make a clear statement that GMA's regional newscasts and the nationwide '24 Oras' share the same identity and mission which is to deliver balanced, unbiased news and without vested interest whatsoever. As we say it in Filipino, 'walang kinikilingan, walang pinoprotektahan, Serbisyong Totoo lamang,'" says Cel Amores, Assistant Vice-President and Head for GMA Regional News and Public Affairs.
From Monday to Friday, catch the all-new 24 Oras newscasts over seven GMA regional stations in Dagupan, Cebu, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Iloilo, Ilocos and Bicol.
