Sentro Balita premiered on July 10, 2017 at 1:00pm, replacing PTV News (Afternoon Edition) as part of programming changes brought by about the relaunch of PTV on June 28, 2017. Former Teledyaryo anchor Angelique Lazo who returned to the network after 5 years of hiatus and PTV News holdover Alex Santos, joining them in one newscast, with Miguel Cruzada (PTV InfoWeather), JM Encinas (Traffic Watch), Atty. Persida Rueda-Acosta (Tapang ng Batas), Dennis Principe (PTV Sports) and Princess Habibah Sarip-Paudac (Salaam News).

On July 16, 2018, as a part of their new era, Sentro Balita along with Daily Info, Ulat Bayan, PTV Newsbreak and PTV News Headlines revamped its opening billboards, barely a few days after PTV's relaunch, while the CGI logos for both progams remained the same, the logos were presented in a 3D-like format.
