PTV to Telecast Palaro 2013 Highlights and Updates

There is another first in this year’s Palarong Pambansa. It will be the first time for the People’s Television 4 to cover the event, affording televiewers a comprehensive update on the country’s biggest annual sporting event.

PTV4 General Manager Cleo Dongga-as and Department of Education Undersecretary Rizalino Rivera signed an agreement today, which binds the national television network to provide airtime and telecast the daily events of the 2013 Palarong Pambansa highlights and updates.

Education Secretary Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC said the agreement will provide optimum mileage for the Palaro in terms of coverage as PTV 4 has a network of provincial stations and the capability to broadcast television programs nationwide.

“With the PTV 4 as our broadcast partner we are confident that our viewing public can follow the events as if they are on the ringside, so to speak,” said Luistro.

DepEd has earlier announced a first in the Palarong Pambansa when it announced that the private sector is offering cash awards to athletes who will excel in the Palaro.

Based on the agreement, PTV 4 will air the Palaro at PTV Sports: 2013 Palarong Pambansa Special – Recap from April 22 to 26, 2013 – Monday to Friday, 5:00PM – 6:00PM including updates in all news programs.

Moreover, PTV 4 shall broadcast the 2013 Palarong Pambansa Highlights and Updates through live streaming at
