Two veteran journalists will fill in the spot of Jessica Soho as the new anchors for GMA News TV newscast ‘State of the Nation’.

GMA News Online announced the said changes, where they named Atom Araullo and Maki Pullido as the new broadcasters for the flagship newscast of the said channel.

Both are highly acclaimed journalists, who also excelled in documentaries such as ‘Reporter’s Notebook’, ‘I-Witness’ and ‘The Atom Araullo Specials’.

“We want to continue the excellent contextual news reporting that the State of the Nation became known for under the irreplaceable Jessica Soho. At the same time, we want to bring important national stories even closer to everyday Filipinos who are ultimately most affected by these events,” said Araullo.

“I won’t be just reading the news for State of the Nation, I will be covering the news we will be delivering on that day. We hope to deliver the news with more context, not just the whos and the whens,” shared Pullido.

The fresh tandem for ‘State of the Nation’ will start this Monday, January 4, weeknights, 9:15 pm.
