  • ABS-CBN’s winning streak continues with a triumphant campaign in the prestigious 2009 New York Festivals, taking home four medals, the most by a single TV station in the coun­try this year.Leading the winners are Ban­tay Bata 163’s 10th Anniversary Special, which won the Gold World Medal for Best Variety Special, and Korina Sanchez’s investigative report on substan­dard glutathione food supple­ments, which took a Silver World Medal.

    korinasanchezBantay Bata 163’s 10th Anni­versary Special was produced by the ABS-CBN Special Projects Group (SPG), headed by event-maven Chit Guerrero. The SPG is behind the company’s grand­est and biggest special events like “Miss Earth” and “Dolphy at 80.” The Bantay Bata Special, which also won in the 17th Gold­en Dove Awards, is just one of the group’s many world-class productions.

    Meanwhile, also making an impression among the judges at the New York Festivals are Silver World Medalists “Boy & Kris” for the Talk/Interview cat­egory and “Lastikman” for the Action/Adventure category. Kapamilya programs “Kung Fu Kids,” “Wowowee,” and “Rated K,” meanwhile, were awarded with finalist certificates for Children’s Program, Fam­ily Program, and Magazine For­mat, respectively. Korina, ABS-CBN’s chief cor­respondent and “Bandila” news anchor, also received a finalist certificate in the Best News Re­porter category at the New York Festivals.

    The New York Festivals In­ternational Television Program­ming and Promotion Awards is on its 49th year of recogniz­ing “The World’s Best Work” in news, documentary, informa­tion, entertainment program­ming, music videos, infomer­cials, promotion spots, opening, and IDs. Judging is done by several hundred US producers, direc­tors, writers, and other media professionals.

    With this victory, the network is even more upbeat to outper­form itself in next year’s compe­tition to bring more glory to the country, while “in the service of Filipino worldwide.”
