Executives from PTV and Philippine Information Agency (PIA) recently visited Marawi City to discuss about the proposed establishment of the station with the provincial government of Lanao del Sur and Mindanao State University System (MSU).Ocular visits to the potential areas in Lanao del Sur provincial capitol complex and MSU were also held.   

“Tinitingnan natin ang provincial capitol complex at ang MSU campus bilang mga potential na mga lugar na mapagpapatayuan ng istasyon dahil ito ang pinakamataas na lugar dito sa Marawi City. Maganda na maipwesto ito sa pinakamatas na lokasyon para sigurado tayo sa signal propagation,” said PIA Director-General Harold Clavite.

[We are seeing the provincial capitol complex and MSU campus as potential areas for the establishment of the station being the high elevated areas in Marawi City. It is also good that this will be established in an area with highest elevation to ensure the signal propagation.]

Clavite further explained that Maranao dialect will be utilized for the news cast.

“Ang mga news cast na gagawin ay in Maranao dialect; gagamitin din ang Tagalog at Bisaya dialect sa pagbabalita para siguradong makukuha kaagad ng ating mga kababayan ang impormasyon,” said Clavite.

[The news cast will be done in Maranao dialect; Tagalog and Bisaya dialect will also be used in news casting to ensure that the residents will immediately receive the information.”

“Layunin ng proyektong ito na masiguro na ang ating mga kababayan dito sa ating lugar, hindi lang dito sa Marawi kundi sa mga karatig lungsod at mga probinsya ay makakakuha ng impormasyon ukol sa lahat ng balita; lahat ng mga programa ng gobyerno,” he added.

[This project aims to ensure that the residents here, not only in Marawi City but also in its nearby cities and provinces will receive information about the news and programs of the government.]
