The Soccsksargen Bloggers or the Sox Bloggers for short, has recently added another feather to their cap with the airing of a special feature on them by Kapuso Channel GMA-8 on their new local semi-docu news and public affairs program, ISYU KARON.
The episode, entitled “BLOGGERS” was hosted by Michael Carbon, a fresh MassCom graduate of the Notre Dame of Dadiangas University who did well in coaxing answers from the usually timid bloggers and in presenting their agenda for South Central Mindanao.
It was anotated in Cebuano although the bloggers who were featured including Bariles, Sheng Dumalay, Gilbert Tan, Alexis Chua and Hector Minoza all spoke in Taglish.
The shooting and interview was conducted during a regular meeting of the Sox Bloggers and eyeball with Dubai-based Wilma Villanueva, author of the coffee-table book, Mindanao Postscripts at the Piyesta KTV & Resto Bar.
The Sox Bloggers which now has a website at www.soxbloggers.com has really come a long way since 5 of them decided to form themselves into a group to counter the negative news coming out from Soccsksargen in particular, and all throughout Mindanao generally.
Now three years after that eventful first eyeball, their blogs have been dominating Google and Yahoo search engine page search rankings for anything about General Santos and the rest of South Central Mindanao.
The video below (thanks to GMA-8) is testament to their success story.
And to balance out things, we are also giving you Kapamilya Channel TV 10’s newscast feature on the Sox Bloggers on their TV Patrol Soccsksargen, aired two weeks ago. This time, focus was on the recent victories of Bariles and GandaEverSoMuch at the Philippine Blog Awards for Mindanao 2010.
Watch it below. Thanks to ABS-CBN Reporter Francis Canlas for this report.
