Airing historyEdit

2011–2012: Eigenmann eraEdit

News Team 13 premiered on August 8, 2011, as the replacement for IBC News Tonight. It was first anchored by Cathy Eigenmann, who was the final anchor of IBC News Tonight and became the first anchor of the program, and the international broadcasts in 2011 through Global IBC.

2012–2013: Sonza eraEdit

On July 2, 2012, IBC unveiled the return of veteran broadcaster Jay Sonza after 2 year hiatus (with UNTV from 2004 to 2010 as the station manager). Sonza became the head of IBC News and Current Affairs and the new anchor of News Team 13, replacing Eigenmann, and lending a face of credibility to the new network. At the same night, Sonza is sitting on a newsdesk. News Team 13 launched its live web streaming on its official webpage as its additional online citizen journalism site, and started its simulcast on the UHF news channel IBC News Network at the same time. Meanwhile, News Team 13 started letting viewers send their reactions on each news through Twitter or Facebook, thus making News Team 13 more interactive in the most comprehensive news. In the opening ident, Sonza would start the headlines by saying "Simula ng ating mga balita," for the night's headlines with clips from the specific news items, after which, the opening billboard before IBC continuity announcer Terence Khan provided the voice-over, "Live, mula sa himpilan ng IBC Newscenter, narito ang News Team 13..." to introduce the newscast and Sonza began the pilot and subsequent episodes with his opening line, "Magandang gabi po sa iyong lahat" and ended with his closing line, "Kahit Saan, Kahit Kailan, Pinoy Ang Dating. Marami pong salamat sa inyong pagtitiwala ng IBC 13. Magandang gabi po sa iyong lahat" to end the newscast.

2013–2016: Sonza-Veloso eraEdit

On September 30, 2013, Amelyn Veloso from TV5 joined as the new co-anchor of Sonza as the lead anchor of the program.

The same night, six weeks after the newly-revamped of Express Balita updated its new OBB and new graphics design, News Team 13 updated its brand new set of IBC news center and new graphics design. Since then, Sonza and Veloso began to stand the news delivery before the reporters begin. After the reporters, both of them will be sitting on the newsdesk, after commercial breaks, Sonza is a stand-up anchor and Veloso is a sit-in anchor, and also after commercial breaks, they also sitting for the newsdesk.

On March 7, 2016, Express Balita and News Team 13 revamped its opening billboards, graphics and ticker; while the logos for both programs remained the same (except that News Team 13 now has a new logo), the logos were presented in a 3D-like format.
