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.
