Veteran radioman Rene Sta. Cruz of DZBB-Manila informed the participants the use of action words and descriptive objectives in presenting newsworthy news including the 5ws and 1h.

Sta. Cruz does not believe in sensationalized reporting as long as it is based on facts and truth. Voice clips are as important as footage in radio and television respectively to support news.

Marichu Villanueva of the Philippine Star told the participants news is considered good like the inclusion of human-interest stories with the corresponding source.

Alex Tinsay of GMA TV-Channel 7 emphasized the addition of media to influence a student as it were only the home church and school that make and unmake them.

Audience also wanted a round the clock news, hence, GMA 7 has “24 Oras”, news program and Chika Minute Patrol.
