ABS-CBN Chief Operating Officer Cory Vidanes Honored with NewPH Award for Women Leadership


ABS-CBN chief operating officer of Broadcast Cory Vidanes was recently recognized for her contributions and achievements in the media industry and for being "the epitome of true women leadership" at the recent 2019 MEGA #NewPH Awards.


In her acceptance speech, Vidanes paid tribute to the Filipino people, who have been the source of inspiration for the people behind the country's leading media and entertainment company in the past 65 years. 


"Thank you to the Filipino whose stories continue to inspire us to create excellent and meaningful content that give hope, empowerment, and love," she said.


An industry veteran with over three decades of experience, Vidanes said she found a deeper sense of purpose in ABS-CBN to be in the service of the Filipino, which is why she remains passionate about her work. 


"Creating excellent programs is a passion. To give Filipino talent an opportunity to take center stage and make their dreams a reality is fulfilling. Connecting the Filipinos worldwide to home through our content and experiences is both empowering and humbling," she explained. 


Joining Vidanes among this year's awardees from the Kapamilya network at the Sofitel Manila Grand Ballroom last June 12 is ABS-CBN talent discovery and management arm Star Magic, which was represented by its head Johnny Manahan and Kapamilya host Robi Domingo. Star Magic was cited for "being home to the country's biggest celebrities, and for defining every generation of Philippine showbiz and entertainment."  


The country's premiere talent agency, which has been helping Filipinos hone their talents and reach their dreams for 27 years, recently released its latest annual Star Magic catalog of talents. Accompanying documentaries and retrospectives detail the artists' stories— from their beginnings to their rise to fame and success. 


Host Bianca Gonzalez-Intal and actress Iza Calzado, meanwhile, were also awarded for being "luminaries of Filipino women empowerment," for their work in the group She Talks Asia, a community that aims to help educate, empower, and inspire people on the role of women in the world.


On the other hand, James Reid was among those recognized for "redefining original Filipino music" through Careless Music Manila, a music production company that signs artists from around the Philippines. 


Mounted by MEGA Magazine, the #NewPH awards is "a celebration of everything that is great about the Filipino race." The annual tradition recognizes various individuals in different industries who embody the definition of Pinoy Pride.

Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. Interns Develop Learning Materials for Public School Children

Public school children will soon be able to enjoy learning from new multimedia learning materials developed by multimedia arts students who took part under Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc.'s internship program.


"Our interns have been playing significant and pivotal roles in achieving Knowledge Channel's vision. They have made significant contributions for KCFI in animation, software development, marketing and communication, and other outputs that benefit our Filipino learners and teachers.  It is not just about the work they do but the impact they make on the public school system and subsequently, on the country," Knowledge Channel president and executive director Rina Lopez-Bautista said. 


A majority of the 168 interns collaborated with animation developers to animate Department of Education-prescribed textbooks and children's stories to be shown on-air via Knowledge Channel, online through www.knowledgechannel.org, and offline through the Knowledge Channel Portable Media Library. They also assisted in engaging school communities and produced marketing materials for the educational animation videos. 


"Basa Bilang" is a program that aims to educate Grades 1 to 3 learners on Oracy, Beginning Reading (in English and Filipino), and Early Numeracy through animated videos.


The internship's success has led most students to want to stay on as volunteers. This led to the creation of a volunteer component of the program and making it the Knowledge Channel Volunteer and Internship Program or KCVIP.  Alongside this is the announcement of the senior high school immersion component.


KCFI aims to develop more videos for primary grade beginning reading and math in the next three years to help improve student proficiencies in these subjects which are the cornerstones of higher learning. By mastering the basics of reading and numeracy, pupils will be able to better face challenges in school and in life.

Feel Good Millenial Movie “Because I Love You” Niw Showing in Theaters Nationwide

In the movie, Shaira plays the feisty, street-smart firefighter who proudly continues her departed dad's heroic legacy. This is a far cry from the stereotypical sweet and demure belles who spend their lives chasing their "happily ever after" moments. In the film, Shaira also showcases woman empowerment and that each woman can pursue any dream job they wishes to do because they CAN. 

David Licauco on the other hand plays a rich polo player Rael. In the film, at first he is in denial that he will fall for someone like Summer because she has a strong personality and she's very independent, but as he gets to know Summer more, things change and soon, he will find himself falling for someone completely opposite his personality. 

Because I Love You is produced by ALV Films under Arnold Vegaria. "Because I Love You" is the second film released by ALV Films. The cast also includes Michelle Dee, Timothy Lawrence Yap, Martin del Rosario and Samantha Lopez, among others and it's already showing in Cinemas Nationwide.
