Last February 22, 2013, RCTV unmasked its new shows at Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino’s Treff.
Below is the official press release from RCTV:
A pioneer in local cable television, RCTV has given and will continue to live its vision by giving the best and only one-stop infotainment for Cebu, and soon, the country.
This year RCTV celebrates a decade of persistent and unequivocal passion for the art of television and this is all wrapped full of presents and exciting new concepts through a gathering dubbed as “Unmasquerade”.
Existing shows that have continued to gain viewership and new shows that will attract attention are set to unveil the channel’s mission this year led by Johann Young, Chairman of Media One Creative, Inc., Mike Solon and Lyndon Angan.
Road Test, an in-house produced motoring show and currently hosted by Paul Kiener will introduce a female co-host to fire up its second season. Fancy and road-hungry vehicles are set to appear on the show with more road safety and car maintenance tips for gas-pumping, adrenaline junkies.
RCTV Sports: Action En Route, a sports show under the RCTV Sports banner, is also paving way for another season with Patrick Rizarri.
Another in-house produced show which is set to start shooting this first quarter of the year is An Irreplaceable You with Coach Katy hosted by Australian-native life coach and author, Katy Bennett.
Make My Trip, a travel TV show, hosted and produced by Lyndon Angan seeks to bring more destinations off the beaten path to its audience to continue to promote local travel production that focuses on adventure and outdoor travel.
Last but certainly not the least in RCTV’s roster of existing shows is Live Concert Series. An avenue for the music buffs to plug in and let loose with the music of varied artists from all over the country and an up-close meet and greet with the music icons themselves. Hosted by radio jock Chassy Cortes, the show promises good times and good music.
Unmasquerade takes off with fresh shows such as Scene Around Town, Lex in the City, and iCook with AICA to put emphasis on the channel’s commitment this year.
Scene Around Town is hosted by former Around Town VJs Marie Dinolan and Danielle Miranda. The community billboard show showcases Cebu in a whole new perspective and fresh twist through its segments What’s NEWsflash (all that’s new from people, places, and events), Season’s Flavors (a table for all to dig in or dine in with food that’s fitting to a season), Modern Day Heroes (inspirational stories from inspired people), Weather Update (a two-week weather forecasts for travelers destined to Manila, Baguio, Boracay, Davao, or Palawan), Property Lookout (the best of Cebu’s real estate scene), Cebu’s Best (the portal to Cebu’s finest products and services), and Shoutouts (where announcements are nothing but amplified for the public’s consumption).
For the ones who are looking to cook things up, sprinkled with culinary passion and excellence, iCook with AICA invites everyone to take on a voyage of flavors and creations in the kitchen. Hosted by Hazel Ypil, the show not only brings out the closeted culinaryholics but cultivates it out in the open through the Academy for International Culinary Arts.
Setting aside the luxury of four-burners and huge ovens, Lex in the City, takes you to a different kind of satisfaction when it comes to the subject of food. Former host of Around Town, Alexis Yap, will take us out on a food trip to Cebu’s go-to spots, accompanied by a new handsome face with a manly appetite per episode. This time, Alexis’s food escapades will not necessarily be on a table, with a seat to sit on, or plates and utensils to use, and certainly no table napkins. The show is set to start production in the later part of the first quarter.
With all the dazzling surprises this year is yet to deliver, RCTV makes it utterly clear that there will be a lot keeping you seated in front of your television screens. Avid patrons are encouraged to continue interaction with the channel through their social media sites: Facebook and Twitter and one may also opt to subscribe to RCTV’s official YouTube channel to get the latest updates.
And plus! Advertisers and our clients get ready!! RCTV can now be seen in Davao at SKY Cable Channel 31 with Licensing Partnership with the Mindanao Travel Channel. Mr. Lyndon Angan, RCTV’s Managing Business Partner is announcing the Boracay, Palawan Baguio and Manila will soon be available this year.
