There is more to mornings than your usual daily-paper-and-coffee habit.
Filipino households are now waking up to brighter mornings with the new format of Good Morning Kuya, UNTV’s flagship program.
GMK showcases heightened and unmatched public services, sensible exchanges of stories and opinions, and trustworthy news reports. It also pulls together segments that bring rich, relevant and interesting information aiming to inspire, empower and educate the viewers.
True to its goal and vision, the show is the prime avenue for rendering public services that gears toward the betterment of the community. Its charitable programs include Libreng Sakay and Clinic ni Kuya. It also features the roaming UNTV Radio Booth that not only serves as a mobile-based reporting hub but also a transportable studio that can cater to the concerns of more Filipino households. This, coupled with the snappiest news, weather, traffic and social media updates, the morning show is sure to set standards of what this type of program should be.
The program is helmed by one of the most credible media personalities in the country, Mr. Daniel Razon as the titular “Kuya”. He transformed the program as a melting pot of intellectual minds of hosts who have different educational attainment, social background and interests.
Lawyers, doctors, a chef, a sports enthusiast, a fashionable mother, and of course, our dear Kuya Daniel, join together to extend, go down and give help to those in need.
A show that can be reached via local televisions, internet facilities, smartphone and tablet platforms, and satellite technologies covering over 1000 remote points, Good Morning Kuya is indeed one remarkable morning habit that viewers should not miss.
