Revamp, overhaul of PTV 4
Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte has appointed TV5 broadcaster-journalist Martin Andanar to head the Presidential Communications Operation Office (PCOO) as the new administration vowed to usher changes into the government media and bring it back to its glory days.
In an interview over DZMM, Andanar said he will introduce drastic changes within PTV 4 and other state-owned media platforms under his office to bring them at par with other countries’ broadcasting services like the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation), the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) and the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation), among others.
Andanar also vowed to rid these agencies of corruption; noting that the Channel 4 charter provides that the TV station operates independently and should be self-sustaining.
“The policies are there, it’s just the implementation, and it’s just the political will to do it. It’s really just the dedication to work, and work without corruption,” Andanar said.
Among the agencies to be under Andanar’s supervision will be Philippine Broadcasting Service, Radyo ng Bayan, the Philippine Information Agency, the Philippine News Agency and the National Printing Office.
