MANILA, Philippines – Citing the Kapatid Network's balanced and truthful news reporting, rich and diverse content and skill in using modern technology to deliver cutting-edge information, the Rotary Club of Manila Journalism Awards on Thursday named TV5 the 2011 Television Station of the Year.

The Rotary Club's vice president and co-chairman of this year's prestigious Journalism Awards, Frank Evaristo, said TV5's brand of journalism is "more on telling the truth without prejudice to anybody, and balanced news reporting - that's what we need."
The awards were handed out at the McKinley Room of the Manila Polo Club in Makati City.
