A year before the 2013 polls, ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, embarks on a year-long primer that will present comprehensive analyses of sectors, personalities, and components critical to the upcoming elections in “ANC Presents: Road to 2013” anchored by veteran political reporter and news anchor Lynda Jumilla every Tuesday at 7 p.m.
Lynda, together with political scientists, experts, elections officials, and prominent politicians, will chart out the local political and electoral landscape in the coming months in the program, which started last March 27. Significant topics that were already discussed in the program were the implication of latest senatorial surveys, potential alliances and candidates, and lessons and problems from the first automated elections in 2010.
“I hope to be able to give the viewers the same substantial political discussions and interviews they have come to expect from ANC, with a bit of my own perspective and insight thrown in,” Lynda said.
With more than a decade of broadcast journalism experience, Lynda has reported on the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government for print, radio, and TV and also co-anchors ANC’s coverage of Chief Justice Renato Corona’s impeachment trial and Studio 23’s noontime newscast “Iba-Balita.”
Having covered the biggest and most controversial personalities and issues in the government, Lynda will try to challenge viewers’ own biases and preferences to become wiser voters by 2013.
“The show delivers in-depth, extensive, and interactive discussions and interviews, but from time to time, I’ll try to drop bits and pieces of trivia, behind-the-scenes, and little-known facts on the goings-on in the political sphere,” she said.
On May 13, 2013, the country’s estimated 54 million voters will troop to polling precincts to cast their ballot in the midterm elections. What’s in store for the country’s second automated elections? And how is the senatorial race shaping up so far?
ANC, the country’s first and only 24/7 news channel, is known for breaking the biggest news as they happen and has been in the forefront of past election coverages, groundbreaking election specials, forums, and projects.
