ABS-CBN dominates 17th Golden Dove Awards

ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation dominated this year’s Golden Dove Awards given out by the Kapisanan ng mga Broadkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP). The awarding ceremony was held at the Taal Vista Hotel in Tagaytay City last Monday, November 17.

The Lopez-owned network amassed a total of 26 trophies out of the 49 award categories, including the coveted Best TV Station Award, an honor they also earned last year. ABS-CBN’s radio station DZMM bagged the award for Best AM Radio Station.

Veteran broadcaster Korina Sanchez bagged three awards: Best Magazine Host for Television, Ka Doroy Broadcaster of the Year, and Best Public Affairs Host for Radio.

Korina’s longtime co-anchor Ted Failon received the award as Best Television Newscaster for TV Patrol World. Ted and Korina’s radio program Tambalang Failon at Sanchez, aired on DZMM, won the Best Public Affairs Program.

ABS-CBN’s coverage of the Manila Peninsula Siege, which took place on November 2007, was hailed as Best Newscast.

Maalaala Mo Kaya’s episode titled “Sako” starring Joshua Domingo took home the award for Best Drama Program.

Sharon won the Best Variety Program for the episode “World Class” shown last May 18. This episode featured Filipino talents who are currently making waves abroad like Charice Pempengco, the Philippine All-Stars, and Lea Salonga.

Now on its 17th year, The Golden Dove Awards is an annual event organized by the KBP and is dubbed as “the country’s answer to the international TV Emmy Awards.”

GMA-7 is not a member of the KBP, thus explaining the absence of their shows in all the categories.
