Vicky Morales Renews Contract With GMA Network

GMA News Pillar Vicky Morales is looking forward to more years as a loyal Kapuso after renewing her contract with GMA Network on March 21.

Joining Morales in the signing were GMA Network Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Felipe L. Gozon; President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr.; Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Felipe S. Yalong; and Senior Vice President for News and Public Affairs Marissa L. Flores.

The 24 Oras anchor proudly shared that in the three decades of being a broadcast journalist, she has always considered GMA Network as her second home.

“Kung tutuusin, itong contract signing, formality lang naman ito,” says Morales. “Kahit walang kontrata, GMA will always be home for me.” She adds that she remains thankful to the GMA Network management for trusting her through the years. “I’m feeling very grateful—siyempre sa mga namumuno ng GMA, sa tiwala nila sa atin. Grateful din [ako] sa mga program ko which I love very much: 24 Oras, Wish Ko Lang, and Good News. And of course grateful [ako] sa mga katrabaho ko. I feel very blessed.”

On the part of GMA Network, Atty. Gozon says he could not be any prouder of the Wish Ko Lang host. “Si Vicky ay tunay na homegrown. Sa simula’t-sapul dito na siya nag-umpisa at isa na siya sa mga pillar ng ating News and Public Affairs group,” he says, adding how Morales continues to lead top-rating programs up to now. “Lahat naman ng programa ni Vicky dito sa atin ay matataas ang rating. Kaya tayo ay talagang nagagalak na nag-renew na naman si Vicky,” he ends.

Mr. Duavit, on the other hand, underscored how the ties between the Network and the Good News host are stronger than ever. “We are very privileged and happy that the relationship with Vicky has continued to evolve, deepen and even strengthen,” says Duavit. “Vicky, maraming salamat sa iyong muli pagtitiwala.”

Morales, who co-anchors GMA’s flagship newscast 24 Oras with Mike Enriquez and Mel Tiangco, also hosts the pioneering public service program Wish Ko Lang. On GMA News TV, Morales spreads positive vibes as host of the magazine program Good News.

Morales was recently hailed as the Best Female News Anchor at the 2019 Paragala: Central Luzon Media Awards. Last year, she also won as the Most Outstanding Female News Presenter of the Year at the COMGUILD’s 12th Annual Conference of Journalism and Mass Communication Students of the Philippines. For Wish Ko Lang, Morales was awarded as the Best Public Service Program Host at the 32nd PMPC Star Awards and received the Pinakamagiting na Personalidad ng Public Service Program honor at the 6th Kagitingan Awards for Television.
