PTV4 General Manager Dino Apolonio Bares Their Plans For The State Owned Network And Getting Kris Aquino Is Not One Of Them

PTV4 GEN. MGR. Dino Apolonio partners with PKEI (Philippine-Korean Entertainment, Inc.) to air the acclaimed historical Koreanovela, “Legendary Doctor Hur Jun”. “This is our first attempt at entertainment TV but we’ll still concentrate on news and public affairs programs,” he says.

Is it true that Kris Aquino might have a show with them? “No, it’s not. We cannot afford her. May balita ring the Tulfos will move to us, also not true, except for Ben Tulfo who’s now doing ‘Kilos Pronto’ with us with Alex Santos.”

He has no plans of clashing head on with GMA or ABS-CBN. “We’re a state owned station so iba ang mandate namin kaysa sa commercial networks. What we’re doing now is to reformat our newscast, with a new logo, new graphics. We’re also trying to improve our signal. Before our transmitter was operating at only about 50% so we increased to 90% and we also purchased six digital transmitters to improve our transmission throughout the country. It’s a work in progress.”
