ABS-CBN Journo Chiara Zambrano Named TOYM Awardee for 2017

ABS-CBN News broadcast journalist Chiara Zambrano brings honor to the Kapamilya network after being named by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines as one of the The Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) in the Philippines for 2017. 


Chiara, who is currently in the United Kingdom pursuing her studies as a British Chevening scholar, is the TOYM awardee in the field of Journalism and Mass Communication. She was cited for her work including the "Di Ka Pasisiil" documentary on the Marawi siege, which she covered from the war zone last year, and "Spratlys, Mga Isla ng Kalayaan," another ABS-CBN News documentary.


In an interview with TJ Manotoc on ANC's "Early Edition," the journalist revealed her passion for storytelling, which has kept her coming back to doing documentaries, her first love. 


"There's really something about documentaries that makes me happy while I'm doing it. Of course, news reporting is a different beast in itself. It has its own sense of fulfillment. But you know it's just a matter of preference, and that's why I decided this year to kind of take a break from all the chaos that we involved ourselves in and to revert to my first love. So, I'm out here now studying to do better documentaries and it's been a great experience so far," she shared.

 

Before becoming an ABS-CBN News reporter covering the defense beat, Chiara was working behind the scenes as part of the network's iconic investigative program "The Correspondents." She said shifting to news was a big leap for her but she is grateful now that she is able to do both news reporting and documentaries. 


"Our bosses are kind enough and they trust me enough to give me the chance to do both. So, most of the time I do news I still give the space to do documentaries like "'Di Ka Pasisiil" about Marawi, the one I did with Jeff Canoy and the Spratlys documentary," she said. 


Chiara earned praises last year for her courageous coverage from the battle lines in Marawi. She shared her insights from her experience there. "Reporting about wars isn't so much about the weapons and the war. The clash and the bang. It's really I think one of the most human beats that you can tell, because you are literally talking about lives lost. And lives saved. And lies shattered by war. That's why it works for me."


Chiara follows ABS-CBN broadcast journalist and news anchor Karen Davila as TOYM awardee from ABS-CBN News. Karen won in 2009. 


Joining Chiara in the TOYM for 2017 are P/Supt. Byron F. Allatog for Government Service and Law Enforcement, Cirilo Joseph Javier for Arts and Music, Eugenio P. Mende for Veterinary Medicine, Ronaldo C. Reyes for Education, Jason Roy T. Sibug for Community Development, Mark Anthony J. Torres for Government Service Education, and Hidilyn F. Diaz for Sports. 

The TOYM award is conferred by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines on individuals who have demonstrated "outstanding leadership and excellence" and contributed to "the cause of humanity" in his or her field. 

Fans Welcomed to the Set of “Venom” in New Featurette

Tom Hardy and Director Ruben Fleischer welcome you to the set of Columbia Pictures' upcoming super hero movie, Venom.

Check out the newly released featurette at https://youtu.be/3B-fiIh5miU and watch Venom in Philippine cinemas this 2018.


One of Marvel's most enigmatic, complex and badass characters comes to the big screen, starring Academy Award® nominated actor Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom.


Venom will be the first film out of the gate from Sony's Marvel Universe after Spider-Man: Homecoming. The film will be released worldwide on October 5, 2018 and is now in post- production.

Scott Rosenberg (Jumanji) and Jeff Pinkner (The Dark Tower) wrote the script for Venom, with Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Amy Pascal as producers. Palak Patel and Eric Fineman oversaw the production for Columbia Pictures.


Venom is one of the most popular superheroes in the Marvel Universe and is unique because Eddie Brock is able to converse and have a relationship with the symbiote, which culminates to him becoming Venom.

Jollibee Celebrates milestone 40th Year with Anniversary Anthem featuring Gary Valenciano and Sarah Geronimo


 

Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo join forces for a one-of-a-kind collaboration that capture the joy-filled stories of Filipinos to mark the 40th anniversary of the country's number one fast food chain.

 

Entitled 'Apat na Dekada', the upbeat and heart-warming song encapsulates four decades of joyful moments shared with generations of Filipinos who have made Jollibee a part of their lives. The song was composed by Thyro Alfaro in collaboration with Jollibee's creative agency, McCann World Group Philippines.

 

For the past 40 years, Jollibee has been a home to stars who have served as their brand ambassadors. The stellar list includes Sarah and Gary who headlined some of the most memorable Jollibee campaigns but none quite as special as the 40thanniversary anthem.

 

One of the brand's first endorsers, Gary shared how it feels to have reached full circle, "I was happy then, overjoyed now because it is 40 years later and I'm doing something with them again."

 

For her part, Sarah has been a part of the Jollibee family since 2005 and has since become one of the country's biggest superstars, growing a wider audience in the same way that Jollibee has continued to spread its reach in the country and across the globe. 

 

While recording the song, the two artists felt waves of nostalgia as they looked back at their own Jollibee moments with their loved ones. 

 

"'Yung entirety nung message nung kanta, inisa-isa niya 'yung simple joys of life, 'yung simple pero masagana, sincere at totoong-totoo kasi ako mismo nakita ko 'yun, naranasan ko 'yun, at naramdaman ko 'yun," shared Sarah.

 

Because the song struck a chord in both singers, they agreed it would also easily resonate among many Filipinos. The Popstar Royalty added, "Kasi 'yung Jollibee it's not just a brand. Pinapahalagahan talaga 'yung values ng pamilyang Pilipino, at saka yung importansya ng saya ng pagiging isang buong pamilya. Iyon 'yung dahilan kung bakit naging malapit sa puso nating mga Pilipino 'yung Jollibee."

 

According to Gary, he was very happy that the brand had gone global. "I think that they've really been able to master that touch of going out of their way, maybe even bending backwards, to stick to what is Filipino, through and through, and it's now creating an impact. Now people are seeing the consistency and I think that's something I commend them for. So I think expanding into other countries is not only going to bring a piece of the product to them but it's also going to bring a piece of the Filipino heart to people all over the world," he shared.      

 

This is the first taste of many surprises in store for Jollibee's 40th anniversary year-long celebration. Be part of this special milestone by watching the special music video (LINK) and relive your very own jolly moments!
