The 2013 Palarong Pambansa, to be played April 21-27 in Dumaguete City and other identified playing venues in Negros Oriental, will be covered by the People’s Television 4 for the first time.
PTV4 general manager Cleo Dongga-as and Department of Education Undersecretary Rizalino Rivera signed recently the agreement that binds the television network to provide airtime and telecast the daily events of the Palaro highlights and updates, a press release from the DepEd said.
DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro said the agreement will provide optimum mileage for the Palaro in terms of coverage, as PTV 4 has a network of provincial stations and the capability to broadcast television programs nationwide.
Based on the agreement, PTV 4 will air the Palaro at PTV Sports: 2013 Palarong Pambansa Special—recap from April 22 to 26, Monday to Friday, 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., including updates in all its news programs, the press release also said.
The network will also broadcast highlights and updates through live streaming, at www.ptv.ph, the press release added.*
