The Christmas station ID featured the Megastar bringing the Christmas spirit straight to the doorstep of a lonely child played by Bangis lead child actor Eboy. From then on, a whole new perspective of bringing joy and sharing presents among Kapatids realizes what the essence of Christmas should really be to everyone.
Adding glitz to the all-star season station ID is this generation’s up-and-coming stars, TV5’s young brood of talents— Alex Gonzaga, Arci Munoz, Danita Paner, JC De Vera, Kean Cipriano, Nadine Samonte and Oyo Sotto with some Talent5 (TV5’s talent management and development arm) artists led by Eula Caballero and Ritz Azul.
The men and women of NEWS5 (TV5’s news and information division) bannered by its head Luchi Cruz-Valdes, anchors Cheryl Cosim, Paolo Bediones, Amelyn Veloso, Martin Andanar, Cherie Mercado, Jove Francisco, Maricel Halili, Atty. Mike Templo, and Tulfo brothers Erwin, Raffy and Ben and other NEWS5 personalities also grace the station ID to send the message of joy and unity across.
Local football superstars James and Phil Younghusband, who just recently signed up as football ambassadors of TV5’s sports block AKTV, join the station ID helmed by Raul Jorolan.
Heralding the Christmas spirit are personalities who are part of the Kapatid Network’s current roster of entertainment programs including Face to Face, Asian TV Awards-nominated Lokomoko and Talentadong Pinoy, Glamorosa, PS I Love You, Celebrity Samurai, Wil Time Bigtime, and the stars of TV5’s upcoming shows including Extreme Makeover Home Edition Philippines, Felina and Valiente.
Meanwhile, at the recently concluded Christmas party of the Kapatid Network for the members of the entertainment press, TV5 First Vice President for Entertainment Perci Intalan revealed the direction of TV5 in 2012 where big-budgeted reality programs are already being lined up, including the Philippine version of Extreme Makeover Home Edition hosted by Paolo Bediones with design team composed of Tessa Prieto-Valdes, Divine Lee, Marilyn Montenegro and Tristan Jovellana; The Biggest Game Show in the World-Asia to be hosted by Richard Gomez; Dancing Nation, Kanta Pilipinas and Temptation Island.
And to bring the “Krismas Mas Mas Masaya” spirit closer to Kapatids, TV5 runs an on-air promo from Monday to Friday starting December 8. More than 70 winners will get to win P1,000 cash and P500 SM Malls gift certificate. Every day, two lucky callers can get a chance to win by tuning in to Yes FM, Win Radio and iFM. The callers will be asked on how they can make this Christmas better than the previous ones—just like the message of TV5’s station ID jingle. The promo runs until December 23.
