BackgroundEdit

One Balita is the radio-TV newscast of the FM radio station Radyo5 and radio-TV news channel One PH. The program is also similar to other radio-television or teleradyo news programs during noontime such as Headline Pilipinas of DZMM, and DZRH Network News of DZRH, because it is broadcasting live from a television news studio but simulcast on radio and television feed instead of using the radio studio for the radio feed.

HistoryEdit

As a noontime newscastEdit

The newscast was launched on February 18, 2019 at 12:00 n.n. It serves as One PH's noontime newscast answering to Balitaan (CNN Philippines). The show is anchored by Raffy Tulfo, also an anchor for 5's Aksyon sa Tanghali, and Marga Vargas.

Expansion to primetimeEdit

On September 9, 2019 at 7:00 p.m., One PH premiered a primetime edition of the newscast under the name One Balita Pilipinas anchored by Cheryl Cosim. In the interim, it replaced the first 15 minutes of the hour-long Sa Totoo Lang, another primetime news program on the channel before the latter was bumped to 7:15 pm and reduced its time to 45 minutes.

On September 23, 2019, both editions of the newscast started to air on 5. The noontime edition was reformatted into a three-way simulcast on 5, One PH and Radyo5 and expanded into 30 minutes, with the Pilipinas primetime edition airing tape-delayed at 10 p.m.; serving as 5's de facto late-night newscast, replacing the English-language The Big Story, produced by sister station One News. Cosim previously anchored TV5-produced Aksyon Tonite before its cancellation in 2019.

On February 28, 2020, One Balita Pilipinas aired its last episode on TV5, reverting it to a cable-exclusive newscast via One PH, but remains simulcasting on Radyo5 outside PBA game dates.

On March 17, 2020, both editions of the newscast were placed on hiatus as One PH opted to air sister channel's One News special coverage on the Luzon COVID-19 quarantine.
