Bandila microsite launched
Bandila anchors Ces Oreña Drilon, Julius Babao and Karen Davila now reach out to more Filipinos and deliver the news throughout the day with the launch of the microsite http://bandila.abs-cbnnews.com yesterday.
Carrying the interactive look and feel that Bandila is known for, the microsite aims to translate the Bandila TV experience to an online experience with streaming of the latest newscast and posts on the night’s biggest news including the amazing and inspiring stories from segments Patok! and Astig!
It also serves as a portal for Bandila viewers, with a display of the latest posts and feeds from the official accounts of Bandila on Facebook and Twitter, as well as all Bandila-related posts bearing the hashtag #bandila.
Bandila executive producer Paul Henson said what makes the microsite even more special is that it will enable the public to get to know more about and learn more from Ces, Julius and Karen, three of the Top 5 Most Followed Filipino Media Practitioners on Twitter.
He said the site will show the public the other sides of the three anchors, who are working journalists that pursue, write and produce their stories.
“Each of them will have a webpage on the site, where they can post videos and photos from their reports for ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs programs. People can also find here articles on the anchors and also those written by them as working journalists,” he said.
To initiate more interaction, the anchors will also post a question in the site for people to answer or comment on. The best entries will be carried on the microsite.
