“MAGANDANG GABI, BAYAN”
became a household phrase.
It has resonated among
Filipino viewers here
. . . and abroad.
The line crossed borders and reached Filipinos outside the country in 1994, when TV Patrol became the first Philippine newscast to be watched overseas, thanks to The Filipino Channel.
MOUNT PINATUBO ERUPTION DISPLACES THOUSANDS
One particular headline that made a
lasting mark in the history of TV Patrol
is that of the Pinatubo eruption.
This story was tipped by a TV Patrol
viewer who unwittingly personified
the Citizen Patrol philosophy way
before it even started.
It was years after that Citizen Patrol, a TV Patrol segment, was fully realized.
Citizen Patrol bravely decentralized newsgathering to its viewers...
...who eventually became Boto Patrollers once the segment evolved into the
award-winning Boto Mo, I-Patrol Mo campaign during TV Patrol’s anniversary.
In its 25 years of existence, TV Patrol as ‘Ang Nag-iisang Patrol ng Pilipino’
worked hand-in-hand with Bayan Patrollers like you in delivering its heritage tabloid
TV reporting with stories that strike a very familiar chord among the people.
