Delivering the hottest stories, paying it forward every week
For Filipinos, radio and TV are not just source of news. They are also perfect companions after a long and tiring week with programs that bring amusement and inspiration to people.
Two such programs on DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 and DZMM TeleRadyo are showbiz talk show “OMJ” with Ogie Diaz and MJ Felipe, and the public service program “Tulong Ko, Pasa Mo” (TKPM) of couple Vic and Avelyn Garcia.
Hot showbiz news is the main fare in “OMJ” every Saturday, where veteran radio anchor, entertainment columnist, actor, and talent manager Ogie trade stories and discuss issues with ABS-CBN News entertainment reporter MJ Felipe, who has already interviewed a jaw-dropping collection of local and international stars.
According to the duo, many people still prefer to tune in to showbiz programs even when information on their favorite shows and celebrities are accessible on social media.
“It is news platforms and commentary shows like OMJ that are able to give people accurate, complete, and comprehensive context of the stories. We have a different discipline when it comes to dissecting issues and verifying news, which is important because of all the fake news and trolls online,” MJ said.
While MJ is the stickler for detail, his mentor Ogie is the expert on wisecracks that their followers enjoy and love. “When the source of news or opinion is credible, people will listen. It takes more to get people’s trust and attention. What they want are intelligent opinions sprinkled with wit and humor,” he shared.
Like MJ and Ogie, DZMM listeners and viewers have also come to love and trust the tandem of real-life couple Vic and Avelyn Garcia of “TKPM.” In the show, they provide people with tips and advice on handling their finance, career, relations, and other life skills. They also link people who need help and want to help in the program.
While their show is relatively new in DZMM, they have been involved in counseling and helping Filipinos have successful, happy, and meaningful lives for years. It all started in 2005, when someone who extended help to them refused to accept payment. Instead, the person asked Vic and Avelyn to pay it forward and help other people.
“It should not stop at when you receive help. Pass on the kindness given to you and continue the chain of people extending help to another,” Vic explained.
Avelyn added, “we believe that if every Filipino would help each other, all our lives will be better. And one day, the Philippines will be one of the richest nations in the world.”
