Investigative Documentaries to expose Government Corruption

HARDHITTING JOURNALIST Malou Mangahas will tackle corruption and anomalies in government in her new show with GMA TV News, “Investigative Documentaries”. Currently the executive director of the fearless Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism (PCIJ), Malou was once the president of the UP Student Council and editor of the Philippine Collegian. She finished journalism in UP in 1980 and majored in Philippine Studies in 1981. Also a Harvard fellow for the Nieman Foundation of Journalism, she’s now one of the most credible and respected figures in Philippine media. She’s married and has a 20-year old daughter, Ria, who’s taking up organizational communications in UP Manila.

For “Investigative Documentaries”, she has an impressive board of advisers consisting of seasoned news persons: Sheila Coronel of Columbia University. Marites Vitug of Newsbreak, Ed Lingao of PCIJ, Grace dela Pena Reyes who’s head of the GMA News Operations, and Florian Tarcelo-Balmes of GMA News Research. With their combined decades of experiences in news reporting and analyses, “Investigative Documentaries” promises to be one of the most informative and enlightening shows ever to hit local TV so don’t miss it on Thursdays at 8 PM starting March 3. “We hope viewers will support the alternative public affairs shows that we’re airing in the 8 to 9 PM slot,” she says. “People tell me ang gaganda ng shows nyo, like ‘Palaban’ before, but it’s so late. So ngayon, all those who complain that there’s nothing but soap and fantasy shows on primetime, here’s their chance to watch meaningful programs on an earlier time slot.”
