As part of its unwavering service to the Filipinos, UNTV News and Public Affairs Department launched its new tag line, “Tulong Muna, Bago Balita,” in which its news teams were trained to save lives in actual emergency situations.

UNTV is the home of Ang Dating Daan and since 2004, it has become a 24-hour TV station, airing not only ADD Programs, but also news, public service and information programming.

UNTV continue to offer smart TV programs that seem to be faring well with its accumulated mainstream audiences. 

Hitting its ninth- year anniversary last July 24, UNTV, despite the UHF channel’s affiliation with the religious organization Dating Daan, was hailed by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) for producing news related-programs that put public service first before the news. 

Good luck and More Power to Mayumi!
