MEDIA giant GMA Network recently received the Platinum Award for the TV Network Category at the 22nd Annual Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Awards.
The Platinum Award is the highest recognition among the trusted brands in the Philippines that are shortlisted in the Reader’s Digest annual event.
Earning another accolade in their roster of awards as well were GMA News pillars Jessica Soho and Mike Enriquez. Soho was conferred the “Most Trusted TV Host/Presenter” for News and Current Affairs category while Enriquez won as “Most Trusted Radio Presenter.”
“Once more thank you to Reader’s Digest for this award and the trust. This couldn’t have come at a better time because things are really hard right now and we all could do with the extra push and inspiration. Thank you for going out of your way to give this out once more, despite all the restrictions and the pandemic. Congratulations to all the winners. God bless all of us,” Soho said during the virtual awarding ceremony.
In 2018, Soho received her eighth “Most Trusted News Presenter” award—earning her the distinction of being the first ever Hall of Fame awardee for the said category. She currently hosts the country’s number one program, “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.”
Enriquez likewise expressed his gratitude upon winning his award. “Thank you very much Reader’s Digest Trusted Brand for this award as the “Most Trusted Radio Presenter” for 2020—a most cherished award. Thank you for the encouragement and inspiration to do even better, and thank you for recognizing our profession,” he said in his acceptance speech.
The GMA News pillar anchors “Saksi sa Dobol B” on the Network’s flagship AM radio station Super Radyo DZBB 594khz. Enriquez is currently the president of RGMA. On TV, he co-anchors the Network’s flagship newscast “24 Oras” and hosts the public affairs program “Imbestigador.”
Reader’s Digest, through its Trusted Brand Survey, recognizes which brands and services, as well as the personalities, consumers trust the most. Due to the pandemic, the awarding ceremonies were held via the inaugural virtual awards made available on its website.
