Magandang Gabi, Bayan (1988)

Magandang Gabi, Bayan

The phenomenal Magandang Gabi, Bayan (Good Evening, Philippines) has reinvented public affairs programming for the 1980's and beyond.

Each week since its inception in 1988, MGB, which is simulcast nationwide over ABS-CBN radio station DZMM, presents revealing, thought-provoking and valuable information viewers won't get anywhere else.

Through the eyes and ears of the country's most trusted news and current affairs anchorman and his team of hardworking, highly-motivated writers, researchers, cameramen and editors among others, MGB documents, analyzes, exposes and chronicles the most significant topics and gripping issues of the times - from crimes, corruption and scandals and their impact on the country and people to uplifting features on human courage and heroism as well as national aspiration and survival.

MGB's in-depth and well-researched investigative reports are presented in a simple yet powerful manner which never fails to grab the viewers.

Small wonder MGB has remained the unprecendented winner and leader in public affairs programs. Imitated by come-and-go copycats, MGB continues to be the only top-rating current affairs program on primetime television, beating all its timeslot competitors whether entertainment, kiddie, drama or special events show. Also, MGB is the first and only public affairs program in the history of Philippine television to make it to the Number One slot in the industry's over-all program ranking.

MGB was previously anchored by Noli de Castro, easily the country's most renowned broadcast journalist. "Mr. Public Service" or simply "Kabayan" to millions of followers, Noli has won a number of prestigious awards for MGB, such as the Catholic Mass Media Award, KBP Golden Dove Award, Gawad CCP, ABS-CBN Recognition Award, to mention a few.

And even critics and competitors grudgingly concede that Noli's meteoric and steady rise to national prominence as a serious, hard-hitting radio and television anchorman rests not only on his competence and rich experience as a broadcaster but, more importantly, on his unquestioned integrity and credibility.
