Former Newscasters/Personalities and ReportersEdit

IBC News EverywhereEdit

IBC News launched its own citizen journalism campaign during its coverage of the 2013 Philippine General Elections. The campaign is now called IBC News Everywhere.

What once started out as an arm that is mainly dependent on using SMS and MMS technologies, IBC News Everywhere has provided more venues - people who submit reports to IBC News Everywhere - through its digital and social media presences, including its Facebook account, Twitter account, and its redesigned website (where people could upload their reports through the website's "Submit" page or through using the Hashtag #IBCNewsEverywhere). IBC News Everywhere also comes as a feature in two mobile apps -'s and COMELEC's - which are present in iOS, Android, and Windows.

The network's two main competitors - ABS-CBN and GMA - also have their own citizen journalism campaigns named Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo! and YouScoop!, respectively.
