ABS-CBN’s current affairs program “Failon Ngayon” continues to be recognized for its efforts to explain relevant issues to the public after winning three awards in the 14th Gandingan Awards, which held a virtual ceremony last July 25.

“Failon Ngayon” won the Most Development-oriented Public Service Program as well as the Most Development-oriented Environment Program for its special documentary entitled “Manila Bay: Rehabilitasyon o Reklamasyon” in the awards organized by the UP Community Broadcasters Society Inc. from the University of the Philippines Los Baños. Its anchor, radio and TV broadcasting icon Ted Failon, also received the Gandingan ng Kalikasan award for the Manila Bay feature.

In the winning piece, the program investigated the plans of rehabilitation and reclamation concerning Manila Bay, a natural harbor located in the capital city of the Philippines. It also discussed the efforts of the public to save the famous tourist destination, which is also one of the nation’s key biodiversity areas according to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR).

Failon expressed his gratitude towards the award-giving body for acknowledging their three-month effort in coming up with the documentary special, and hopes to continue their connection with the student organization in promoting the preservation of the environment.

“Sa gitna ng aming pagod, sa gitna po ng lahat ng pagsubok na amin pong inabot para po mabuo ang naturang dokyumentaryo… ang parangal na ito ay bonus po sa aming lahat at nakapagbibigay po sa amin ng inspirasyon upang gumawa ng makabuluhan na mga dokyumentaryo,” he said in a video message.

The Gandingan Awards, now in its 14th year, aims to recognize the efforts of media programs and personalities in giving importance to development-oriented campaigns and strengthening community broadcasting in the country. With a theme of “Midya: Kakampi ng Bayan sa Laban Para sa Katarungan,” this year’s ceremony is dedicated to members of the media facing challenges in their performance of their duty as people’s watchdog, including ABS-CBN.
