Last March 2, ETC finally found its new home on RPN9. At the same time, Southern Broadcasting Network (SBN) is now venturing into news. Lucio Co & William Tieng got former ANC news anchor and President Benigno Aquino III’s inaugural spokesperson Jing Magsaysay as the head of SBN News Division. SBN has launched Talk TV. It is the third English language all-news channel in the Philippines after ABSCBN News Channel (ANC) and Global News Network (GNN) and the third free TV channel launched after AksyonTV and GMA News TV, and the very first 24-hour English news Channel on Free TV. We consider this year the era when News on TV begin to evolve.
