Korina Sanchez winner again!

Christmas came early for Korina Sanchez in the form of a grand slam in the country’s most prestigious award-giving bodies for broadcast.

Last July, the frontline anchor, commentator and chief correspondent of the ABS-CBN News & Current Affairs was chosen Broadcaster of the Year for Television by the Rotary Club of Manila Journalism Awards and recently voted the No. 1 Most Preferred/Admired Female TV Personality by the Anak TV Awards.

Two weeks ago, Korina also bagged the Ka Doroy Broadcaster of the Year Award from the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, joining the roster of awardees over the past 17 years including the late Jose Mari Velez, Ricardo “Dong” Puno, Francisco “Koko” Trinidad, Cheche Lazaro, Solita Monsod and Tina Monzon-Palma.

In her acceptance/thank-you speech during the awards ceremony held at the Taal Vista Lodge in Tagaytay, Korina defined broadcasters as “mere vessels who bridge the gaps, inform, educate and entertain; there is a lot more to be done.”

Adding that a reporter is only as good as the subject and that journalists are some of the most “overworked, under-appreciated, harassed and jaded of us all, but the thrill of bridging the gap makes it all worth it,” Korina credited her home station for her achievements.

“ABS-CBN has seen me grow; it gave me the opportunities to do what I thought I could do best. Without my home studio, I would not be what I am today,” in the same breath sharing her honors with her staff and the people behind DZMM, ANC and Channel 2 “whose work I simply represent.”

The short AVP before her speech showed clips of Korina’s award-winning pieces, among them: Her investigative report on wire-tapping, the agenda-setting exposé on substandard whitening food supplements, her one-on-one with MILF leader Al Haj Murad Ebrahim at the height of the hostilities with government forces, select scenes of the big news in small lives from her show Rated K, some of her no-holds-barred commentaries on the DZMM Teleradyo and her on-air charities.

What next for Korina?

A Funfare DPA whispered that Korina might spring a “little shocker” sometime next year.
