GMA Broadcaster Joseph Morong Gets To Host Own Show, 'Fact Or Fake', On GMA News Online Youtube Channel Starting January 1, 2018, 5 PM

JOSEPH MORONG is a regular broadcast journalist at GMA News and Public Affairs assigned in Malacanang to cover the activities of Pres. Duterte. He’s a recipient of the McLuhan Fellowship award in 2015 from Canada that encourages responsible journalism. He was chosen to receive the fellowship for his excellent reportage of the issues surrounding the peace process in Mindanao, especially the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law.

He is now given his biggest break as host of his own show, “Fact or Fake”, which is very timely in this era of fake news. This is part of GMA One Online Exclusives on GMA’s youtube channel. He’ll be with Atom Araullo and Gabbi Garcia.

Does he feel any pressure with his first hosting job? “Siempre may pressure kasi we’re touching on something controversial, so we have to be careful as our goal is for the public to be able to discern what is fact and what is fake news,” he says. “We have to be sure kung ano yung ilalabas namin para hindi kami ma-criticize na naglalabas ng fake news. I promise to do my best para maging maayos and very informative and truthful ang bawat episode na ilalabas namin. Even the big bosses of thew GMA news department are very much involved to make sure we have a show of good and top quality.”

The show will start airing tomorrow on New Year’s Day 2018, and will be aired every Monday thereafter at 5 PM.
