GMA News Pillar Mike Enriquez Inks Contract With GMA Network Anew





GMA News pillar and multi-awarded news anchor and radio host Mike Enriquez is looking forward to more years of ‘Serbisyong Totoo’ after renewing his contract with GMA Network on Tuesday, February 13.

Present during the contract signing were GMA Network Chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon, President and COO Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., EVP and CFO Felipe S. Yalong, and SVP for News and Public Affairs Marissa L. Flores.

Enriquez, who is also the president of RGMA Network, shared how he still looks forward to working with the leading broadcast company in the coming years. “Tuloy-tuloy lang ang trabaho, tuloy-tuloy lang ang pagbibigay ng Serbisyong Totoo lalo na sa panahon ngayon na marami pang mga pagbabago na magaganap sa GMA. Kaya exciting na nakapirma na naman tayo ng kontrata. Exciting harapin ang kinabukasan dahil marami pang proyektong gagawin,” he said.

GMA’s top management, in turn, recognized Enriquez’ unmatched competence, both in his work as a broadcast journalist and as an executive in the Network.

“Si Mike, if I recall correctly, siya na ang pinakamatagal na TV newscaster dito,” Gozon shared. “Palagay natin dito sa GMA ay siya na ang pinakamagaling na TV newscaster at radio anchor. Ang pinaka importante sa lahat, ang integrity at fairness ni Mike whether on cam or off cam, ay unquestionable. Kaya tayo’y masayang-masaya na nagrenew na naman si Mike sa atin,” he added.

Enriquez, who is the only Asian and only Filipino so far to win the Best Newscaster Award in the Asian Television Awards, co-anchors GMA’s flagship news program, 24 Oras, and hosts the investigative public affairs program Imbestigador. He is also heard on Super Radyo DZBB’s programs – Saksi sa Dobol B, Super Balita sa Umaga Nationwide, and Imbestigador sa DZBB.

The Kapuso broadcast journalist attributes the public’s continued trust to GMA Network and his wok as the reasons why he remains successful throughout the years.  “Ang pagtitiwala natin sa isat-isang mga taga GMA ay nakabase naman sa pagtitiwala sa atin ng mga Kapuso nating tagapanuod at tagapakinig—lahat ng ito ay para sa kanila. Hindi ito para sa atin. Hindi ito para sa GMA. Para ito sa mga nakikinig at mga nanunuod,” Enriquez emphasized.

Enriquez has been constantly recognized for his work by various award-giving bodies. Some of his recent awards include the Most Innovative Male TV Newscaster at the 3rd Global Innovative College (GIC) Innovation Awards for Television; Best AM Radio Anchor at the 7th People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) Makatao Awards for Media Excellence; and Best Male Anchor at the 7th EdukCircle Awards. Enriquez is also an Anak TV Makabata Hall of Famer, having been voted as Makabata Star in a span of seven years. (30)
