NEWS5, TV5′s News and Information Division, brings public service to new heights with the launch of its new public affairs program T3: Kapatid, Sagot Kita! Bannered by the most formidable siblings in Philippine broadcasting – Raffy, Ben and Erwin Tulfo – T3 premieres on September 5, right before AKSYON Prime on TV5.
Known for delivering immediate action to grievances and complaints from the public, the Tulfo brothers will join forces in a powerhouse public affairs program that brings voice to the voiceless and power to the powerless.
“With glaring pictures of abuse and neglect, we cannot afford to sit back and do nothing. We must act on it now,” NEWS5 head Luchi Cruz-Valdes said as she helped to launch T3. “Every single day, our public service units receive tons of complaints from our kababayans involving abuse of authority by different public officers. We also hear stories of women and children being severely treated. More than one year after the elections, we still see public officials who don’t deliver on their promises and duties.”
Given the continuing problems and challenges in Philippine society, she said, “we’re very pleased to welcome T3 aboard our lineup of service-driven programs. This cements our vision to serve the public in every way can. May bago nang sumbungan ang mamamayan.”
T3 will feature several segments targeted to a specific area of concern.
Erwin Tulfo will hold corrupt and negligent officials accountable in “Ambush.”
Ben Tulfo will make sure perpetrators fall for law enforcers’ trap in “Modus.” The man of Bitag will also equip the public with tips and information to combat crimes.
Finally, as women and children are among the most vulnerable in society, Raffy Tulfo will rally their rights and defend them from abuses in “Resbak.”
In other segments: “Kapatid, Sagot Kita,” will help speed up the process in government transactions, and the show will also endeavor to shine a spotlight on outstanding and deserving public servants in “Saludo.”
T3 hits TV screens on Monday, September 5, before AKSYON Prime on TV5.
