"THE CHALLENGE TO GO INDEPENDENT"
To provide an alternative and credible source of news, features and other related information.
To be a truly independent media entity that is outside the parameters and control of networks and its many interests other than the search for truth and the duty to inform.
To give access and opportunities to aspiring media practitioners in various fields by opening doors of opportunities for them to develop their skills and talents.
To be an acknowledged source of information and an avenue of innovation in Philippine broadcast media.
JUST ONE MORE PERSONAL NOTE...
Let me put it this way, it's an idea that has been there for years waiting for the right resources and the necessary focus to sustain this undertaking. To go freelance is one thing but to be independent is another.
The thought of going solo minus a giant network to back you up could be scary. Really scary.
Yes I am doing ala Judy Anne Santos. I am going the road of independence and will finally take-full control of my craft.
The idea was rekindled sometime last year when this journalist was tapped to be the Philippine producer/fixer of the film-documentary Stalking Jihad, produced by Wild Eyes Productions exclusively for the History Channel based on interviews and scripts by renowned book author and journalist Mark Bowden. After that, everything seemed to fall into place.
I was ready a long, long time ago. The truth is--I was just scared. Yes this "tough one" was scared to go solo! I needed to hear from colleagues that it can be done and the possibilities are really just out there waiting to be tapped and explored.
The most important element is also present and in full force: the motivation and support of my family.
All ideas they say have their time to be born. This one has just kicked out of the womb.
The first cry reduced me to tears, I am a "mother "once again.
This new "baby" is raring, determined and energized to do meaningful projects for domestic and international consumption.
We will tell stories as it is. The truth that we know and the truth that we found out, then, now and in the years to come.(end)
