ABS-CBN News' Korina Sanchez, Balitang America's Yong Chavez among winners of Media Newser Philippines' Top Media Stories of 2012

Media Newser Philippines (MediaNewser.com) unveiled its Top Media Stories of 2012 and two media personalities from ABS-CBN made it to the list: Korina Sanchez of ABS-CBN News Manila and Yong Chavez of ABS-CBN The Filipino Channel’s (TFC) Balitang America.

Excerpts from MediaNewser.com:


ABS-CBN News’ Chief Correspondent Korina Sanchez experienced sort of a rebirth in 2012 after conducting an interview with Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago. While her Sunday show Rated K still struggled in the ratings, the last quarter of the year proved to be kind to Sanchez, as her program gained her international accolade being “Highly Commended” as Best Current Affairs Presenter in the New York Festivals.


For much of 2012, the news has been saturated with news of our Filipino kababayans who have made waves in the international scene. We saw three Filipinos giving pride to our great nation — Jessica Sanchez of American Idol, Cheesa Laureta of The Voice and Jason Farol of Duets. Sanchez in particular was the most talked-about, drawing attention after her live performances on American Idol. Among the Big 3, it was ABS-CBN News which landed exclusive interviews with the three, thanks to their Los Angeles correspondent Yong Chavez.
