Quezon City has been known as the center of media operations because of the high concentration of radio and television stations here, including the largest multimedia conglomerates in the country.

It is home base to at least 11 local television networks, including ABS-CBN in Mother Ignacia Street, the GMA Network in Timog corner EDSA, TV5 in San Bartolome, Novaliches, the state-owned NBN in Visayas Avenue, and RPN9 and IBC-13 in Broadcast City Capitol Hills.   Also located in Quezon City are six cable TV networks, seven AM radio stations, four FM radio stations, and at least four print media offices.

ABS-CBN became the first commercial television broadcast network when it was founded in 1946. Apart from television and radio, the network has also diversified into film (Star Cinema), music recording (Star Records), cable (Sky Cable), publishing (ABS-CBN Publishing), and interactive media (ABS-CBN Interactive).  It also broadcasts in other countries particularly in predominantly Filipino enclaves in Saudi Arabia and the United States, through The Filipino Channel (TFC).  Like its rival GMA, the network is working on converting its analog service to digital television-terrestrial service (DTT), in line with the worldwide shift toward the use of DTT in broadcasting.

Another formidable media player, GMA Network traces its origins to DZBB which went on air for the first time in 1950. It broadcast the forerunner of today’s political satire programs with Kwentong Kutsero, and glued audiences to the amateur radio contest, Tawag ng Tanghalan.  When it ventured into broadcasting, GMA initially aired foreign hits like Charlie’s Angels, Chips, and Three’s Company. The success of these canned shows, as well as the sale of airtime to block-timers, enabled the network to produce its own local programs. In 2000, it became the first and only Filipino news organization to receive the coveted George Peabody Award.  Now, having diversified into other media forms, it has subsidiaries including GMA Films, GMA Records, the Kapuso Foundation, New Media Inc. (online service), and Pinoy TV which broadcasts its shows in different parts of the globe.

TV5 is an emerging contender in the television ratings game. After the re-branding and major overhaul given to the former lackluster ABC5 network in 2008, the new and improved TV5 now promises to target the “underserved demographic of 30 and below including those who are young at heart—generally the progressive Pinoys who are open to change and are willing to try new things and experiences.”  TV5 boasts of a fresh roster of stars and a stronger lineup of programs that includes news and current affairs shows, variety shows, telenovelas, dubbed foreign serials, gag shows, cartoons and anime, reality shows and sports.

Theater Education

The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) is an organization founded in 1967 by theater enthusiasts committed to artistic excellence and a people's culture that fosters both personal fulfillment and social transformations. Through the years, PETA has contributed to the evolution of a theater which in language, outlook and spirit is distinctly Filipino and, as founder Cecile Guidote dreamed, a “theater that would reach everyone.”

Aware that theater is a powerful tool for social change, PETA has written, translated, adapted, published, and performed over 300 plays that mirror truths, challenge norms and expose social ills. Among its recently produced plays are BOTO (a musical), Ismail at Isabel (about friends who live in an ideal town where Muslims and Christians live in harmony), Noli at Fili: Dekada 2000, and Mga Kwento ni Lola Basyang.

Aside from its theater program, PETA maintains an array of close-knit programs and services. Foremost among them is its training arm, the School of People’s Theater, which offers a wide range of courses for amateurs, professionals and hobbyists alike, and has facilitated thousands of workshops here and abroad. The Metropolitan Teen Theater League Program and the Children’s Theater Program combine performances with training modules for young people and educators. Just as the latter focuses on children’s issues, the Women’s Theater Program addresses female problems like reproductive rights and domestic violence.

PETA initially took residence in Dulaang Rajah Solayman, a T-shaped outdoor theater located in the ruins of Fort Santiago in Intramuros, Manila. In 2005, it moved to a new home, the PETA Theater Center in New Manila, Quezon City.
