Heart pounding, hands shaking but with a smile plastered on his face, on the afternoon of September 19, 2008, Bariles Republic finally signed the Letter of Agreement designating the ABS-CBN Regional Network Group as a CO-PRESENTER of the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit. Signing in for the Kapamilya station was ABS-CBN GenSan Admin Officer Myra Muñoz-Barrientos, subbing for Station Manager Annie Solon-Gacayan.

Standing as witnesses were MOR Deejays Joey Concepcion and Mario Valentino, while Field Reporter Francis Canlas took the photo seen on this post.
The short signing session which was conducted at the office of Ms. Annie at the ABS-CBN Compound in Purok Malakas was later shown the following day, Friday on the local news program, TV Patrol Socsksargen anchored by Dexter Ganibe and will be replayed on Monday morning (September 22nd) at 6:30am during the broadcast of Magandang Umaga Socsksargen.
This partnership is a big boost for the MBS2 since a 15-seconder Advertisement for the summit will be aired at ABS-CBN’s Regional Stations not only in Socsksargen but also in the major cities of Mindanao like Davao, Cagayan de Oro, and Zamboanga! It will commence on September 29 and end on October 24, 2008.
Likewise, since an event of this magnitude gathering bloggers together in what is normally known outside as “The West’s Travel Advisory Favorite” comes far in between, it may be also carried by their ANC News Channel, Studio 23, and TFC.
Haneps! What’s good about teaming up with the world’s largest Filipino-owned media conglomerate is the fact that will it not only boost the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit but also the popularity of blogs and bloggers everywhere.
And of course, my deejay friends at MOR 92.7 (which is now the #1 Radio Station in GenSan, according to the latest Nielsen ratings survey), have been mentioning this event every now and then. Thanks Joey C, Mario Valentino, DJ Cheenee, Papi Churlz, and GenSan’s radio darling Inday Baki!
Lastly, allow me to thank the following people, whom without their help, the MBS2 would not have come this far:
- Mr. Jerry Bennett, OIC of the ABS-CBN Regional Network Group
