Tv5 News Head Luchi Cruz Valdes Wins World Achiever Award In Documentary

CONGRATULATIONS TO TV5 News and Information head Luchi Cruz-Valdes for winning the World Achiever Award in Documentary at the recent 8th International Center for Communication Studies (ICCS) Media Convention held at Henry Lee Irwin Theater at the Ateneo de Manila University. Sharing her experiences in her decades-long broadcasting career, Valdes told the convention, "You're going to have to focus first on exactly what you want to do, what you want to accomplish in a story, and what you want to show.”

Luchi has the unique experience of having worked in newsrooms of the Philippines’ major TV networks after her 10-year stint as a co-founder, production manager and reporter at Probe Productions. Aside from this most recent commendation, Valdes has received several distinctions, including KBP’s 2001 Ka Doroy Brodkaster of the Year, Titus Brandsma Awardee for Excellence in Broadcast Journalism, three medals at the New York Film and Television Festivals in 1990, 2000 and 2001 and the 2011 Distinguished Alumni Award in Broadcast Journalism given by the University of the Philippines Alumni Association (UPAA). She now anchors the late-night news magazine program Reaksyon which airs nightly after Pilipinas News.
