BackgroundEdit

The 30-minute weekday edition first aired on January 6, 1992 as a replacement for GMA Headline News with Tina Monzon-Palma (who then moved to ABC as the Chief Operating Officer) and Leslie Espino (who replaced Jose Mari Velez on the newscast after his death).The first team of anchors was composed of Espino,Vicky Morales (who also had a brief stint as the third anchor on Headline News), Marga Ortigas,GMA reporter Jessica Soho and two new recruits from rival stations-Mari Kaimo (from PTV) and Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel (from IBC).Espino-Soho would bow out of the newscast after a year, leaving the four of them being the main anchors.On April 7, 1997, the newscast was given a new set, new theme music, and a sleeker opening ident and graphics package. In the opening ident, Kaimo gave a sneak peek of the night's headlines with clips from the specific news items,after which,Mike Enriquez (and later, GMA continuity announcer Al Torres) provided the voice-over,From the award-winning GMA News and Public Affairs team, this is GMA Network News.to introduce the newscast and its anchorpersons. Rachel del Mar became the program's new weather girl, who would always end the segment (GMA Weather Center) with her signature close,This is Rachel del Mar, your all-weather friend.However, Kaimo, Hontiveros and Ortigas eventually left the newscast as well On-May,29,1998.The former would move to ABS-CBN (to host The Correspondents and the Studio 23 (ABS-CBN Sports and Action) newscast (News Central), while Hontiveros ran for party-list representative in Congress and Ortigas at the other hand, currently as an Al Jazeera correspondent.On-July,11,2016-present,Balitaan anchor Marasigan joined Cristobal and Habibah-Sarip as co-anchor, replacing Kaimo as the main male anchor and female anchors Hontiveros and Ortigas.GMA-Network-News.became the first Filipino newscast to do stand-up news delivery inspired by American television network newscasts.GMA marked a history on making an idea of putting Filipino language on late-night newscast. Morales, in a interview of "Limang Dekada" in 2009, said in the mid 90's it attempted to switch the newscast to Filipino and the concept was "super radical", during that time, most TV station newscast used Tagalog-language on noontime-newscast from 1:00-2:00pm.The news department decided to try it in order how to get the response of the viewers, first was "Taglish" (a mixture of Tagalog and English) the latter said and eventually,Filipino on November,2,1998-present and also its airing was cut to 60-minutes. It became the first Filipino-language late-night television newscast. Due to this,GMA-Network-News,ratings fasten to higher than its rival English-language newscasts,Aksyon-Sa-Tanghali of TV5,Balitanghali of CNN Philippines and Dateline-Philippines of ANC and caused GMA to become the number one in the Metro Manila ratings in 2004 and in the nationwide ratings in 1999-2000,all stations started to follow including rival network ABS-CBN's Pulso-Aksyon-Balita and ABS-CBN Headlines which replaced-by The-World-Tonight and Pulso-Aksyon-Balita which is now broadcast on the ABS-CBN News Channel and ABC's Big News, one of the last television newscasts to broadcast in English,switching to Filipino in 2004,and this was the start of a new era of airing all-Tagalog newscast on late-night.Enriquez used his signature close, "Thank you for trusting GMA", which became "Marami pong salamat sa inyong pagtitiwala sa GMA" (when the newscast switched to Filipino) to end the newscast. The latter closing line was also used by himself in Saksi (when he returned and Morales transferred to the said newscast in 1999 after the premiere of Frontpage: Ulat ni Mel Tiangco on the late-night slot) and on his DZBB radio program. Mel Tiangco would later use the same closing line until 2014 when Morales became the third anchor and used the same closing line as Enriquez-Tiangco on 24-Oras.Meanwhile, the newscast's weekend edition aired from January,11,1992-present,first,with Raffy Marcelo,Georgette Tengco,Gin de Mesa,They were replaced-by.eventually and finally,Jiggy Manicad ,Pia Arcangel-Halli,Martin Andanar,On-June,6,1998.and switching to Taglish.The-weekend-edition also eventually-switched to news delivery in Filipino at the same time on January,9,1999-present as the weekday-edition did and also its airtime was cut to 35-minutes.GMA-Network-News.continued to be the weekend newscast.On-July,11,2016-present,Saksi,anchor Pops Fernandez,Zsa-Zsa Padilla joined Carlo Marasigan and Joe Marasigan as co-anchor replaced Mike Enriquez and Vicky Morales as the interim Weekday-anchor on GMA-Network-News while.GMA marked a history on making an idea of putting Filipino language on late-night newscast and became the first network to completely report only in Filipino language identical to the American reporting only in English.
