I braved myself to go online and to browse news today. Why “braved”? It’s because I had enough of horrible quake stories the previous week. But now I was surprised finding myself otherwise.
This post has made me realize some good points today —
We also like the fact that Daniel Razon can now be seen on TV, after a rather long hiatus. He may not be on a “major” channel, but his amiable, reasonable and sincerely empathetic announcing and hosting style is a relief after all those loud, livid and self-absorbed “news and views” personalities out there who make local TV such a clangorous three-ring circus.” (Excerpts from Inquirer Showbiz & Style 03/27/2011 – Comebacks contagious, Nestor Torre)
Mr. Daniel Razon, CEO of UNTV station has been spearheading its ‘Public Service’ effort which is remarkably touching lives of so many people.
- Tulong Muna Bago Balita (Aid First Before News) – UNTV offers an aid to accident victims before collecting info. to come up with news.
- Dunong Gulong Mobile School – Buses that go to remote places to educate fellow citizens who cannot afford to go to school.
- UNTV Tree-Planting – Environmental concern manifests in the TV station’s initiative on planting trees.
- Isang Araw Lang Campaign (Just One Day) – Rendering Public Service in a day: cleaning river, run for a cause (free education), feeding program, free clinic
- Libreng Sakay (Free ride on bus/jeep/ship/airplane/MRT for Senior Citizens)
- Free Legal Service
- Free Medical Service
- Free Education
- Human Rights Advocacy
- Munting Pangarap (granting Small Dreams)

UNTV might not be considered a “major” channel during this time. But the effort they exert in promoting the advocacy to serve the public seems to be really unstoppable.
Big things are really out of small things.
More power to Mr. Daniel Razon and UNTV team!
