TV5 is pulling out a lot of surprises. Initially they pitted Willie Revillame against the prime time newscasts of ABS-CBN and GMA. Just recently they announced that the new co-host of Willie is the ex-girlfriend of President Noynoy Aquino, Shalani Soledad. This is a bit weird since Revillame was a very vocal supporter of Aquino’s bitter rival, Senator Manny Villar in the recent elections. Anyway, now we have a new development. TV5 is launching 92.3FM Radyo Singko but with a huge twist. Instead of playing music all-day, they’ll be doing AM programming on an FM station.
It will be very interesting how this will play out. Here’s the weekday programming schedule:
4 AM – Andar ng mga Balita – Martin Andanar
6 AM – Todo Balita! – Neil Ocampo
8 AM – Cosim-Tulfo: Punto Asintado! – Cheryl Cosim and Erwin Tulfo
10 AM – Isyu – Raffy Tulfo and Nina Taduran
12 NN – ShowBisto! – Laila Chikadora and Tsongki Benj
2 PM – Relasyon – Luchi Cruz-Valdez and Atty. Mel Sta. Maria
4 PM – Cristy Ferminute – Cristy Fermin and Richard Pinlac
7 PM – Sakto kay Paolo – Paolo Bediones
9 PM – Ah, OA! Amy and Hans On-Air! – Amy Perez and Hans Mortel
By the way, let me do some shameless plugging. My wife, Michelle Orosa-Ople, will have her own program on Saturdays at 12 noon. It will be about business and consumer issues. Please do tune in and give her your support.
