Yesterday, I began feeling the Pacquiao mania as GMA-7 started showing news and tidbits of the upcoming match through their various programs such as Show Me Da Manny and the likes. I also look forward to Charice Pempengco's rendition of the national anthem. Now that is certainly fitting for an opening.
Last Friday, I attended a bloggers briefing at GMA-7 who will air the exclusive coverage on free television. Admittedly, as per contract, there will be slight delay for Filipino viewers through this medium. However, for those who are anxious in being updated, they can tune in to DZBB and GMA News for updates.
One thing unexpected during our tour was meeting Wilma Galvante, Senior Vice President - Entertainment group, of GMA-7. Instead of us asking her questions, she asked a lot of questions about blogging like how did we become one, sustainability, handling of controversy, promotion, among others. Later on, she mentioned plans of having her own blog someday. She candidly answered questions about the various programs and how talents got chosen to play lead roles in teleserye.
