With most people going through a hard time due to the pandemic, GMA Public Affairs brings viewers a much-needed boost of good vibes via the newest docu-magazine show On Record.
The show covers life in all its moments—from the pleasant to the beautiful to the inspiring. It will feature videos and photos about heroism, random acts of kindness, the secret life of pets, among others—all caught on camera.
Hosted by broadcast journalists Oscar Oida and Mav Gonzales, On Record offers a glimmer of hope as it features inspirational stories of ordinary Filipinos and their own version of Serbisyong Totoo caught on cam. It airs every Tuesday, 11:30 pm, beginning tonight.
Known for his distinct approach to news reporting, Oscar is regularly seen in GMA’s flagship newscast 24 Oras as well as in Unang Balita and Brigada. He is also the host of GMA Public Affairs’ Sumbungan ng Bayan Libreng Payo Online.
Oida started in GMA as a Segment Producer of [email protected] in 1998. In 2003, he became one of the Network’s news reporters. He has been a crime reporter for 14 years. His memorable news reports include the 2010 Quirino Grandstand hostage-taking and the 2017 Marawi siege.
Meanwhile, one of Mav’s notable news stories was the Taal Volcano eruption in January 2020, being the first reporter to break the story. She also received a Save the Children citation for her Brigada documentary about children walking long distances just to get potable water. Mav is often seen on 24 Oras Weekend, 24 Oras News Alert, and News TV Live.
For both Oscar and Mav, On Record serves as a break from the hard and serious news that they normally work on.
“For someone who has been covering hard news from crime reporting, typhoon, and natural disasters to politics in a span of two decades and counting, it is a breath of fresh air to dabble on inspiring stories that would lift people up,” shares Oscar.
Mav was eight years old when she hosted Chikiting Patrol in 1998. She started as a news reporter for GMA News and Public Affairs in 2012.
“I started out hosting as a kid in GMA, so I’m really excited to get to do this again in the network I literally grew up with. People usually see me covering sports or hard news but in On Record, we will be featuring more good vibes—something we all need during this pandemic,” adds Mav.
Viewers abroad can also catch On Record beginning Feb. 27 on GMA News TV International. For the program guide, visit www.gmanetwork.com/international.
