As testament to his unwa-vering commitment to Serbisyong Totoo, GMA News’ Mike Enri-quez received various recognitions from different universities recently.
The 24 Oras co-anchor and Imbestigador program host has been named as Best Male News Anchor by Central Luzon’s Bachelor of Arts in Communication students. He is set to receive the award at the 3rd Paragala Central Luzon Media Awards sche-duled this Saturday, March 12.
Launched in 2014, the Paragala Central Luzon Media Awards was initiated by the Communicators’ League of Holy Angel University in Pampanga, in partnership with various academic institutions in Central Luzon.
Enriquez, who also serves as GMA Network’s Consultant for Radio Operations, earlier won as Best Male AM Radio Personality in this year’s UmalohokJUAN Award organized by the Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) Manila. He is regularly heard on Super Radyo DZBB’s Saksi sa Dobol B on weekdays.
Earning a nod as well from LPU was Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho, which took home the Best Magazine Show award last March 10 at the JPL Hall of Lyceum in Intramuros, Manila. Lyceum recognizes works and achievements by media/corporate organizations and personalities who embody the university’s core ideals.
Enriquez joined fellow news pillars and 24-Oras co-anchors Mel Tiangco and Vicky Morales as this year’s Gawad Para sa Makabagong Mandirigma sa Larangan ng Telebisyon awardees by the University of the East. Now on its third year, the Gawad Bagani sa Komunikasyon recognizes the “warriors” in the popular media who fight social injustice rooted in poverty. The anchors of GMA’s flagship newscast were recognized in a ceremony last February 19.
Yet another feather in his cap, the “Imbestigador ng Bayan” also took home the 2016 Media Award by Adamson University. Enriquez was recognized for his role in becoming a voice for the poor and the marginalized through his various programs on television and radio.
Besting four other nominees from different television stations, Enriquez was voted by the students, administrators, co-academic personnel, and priests assigned in the said university. He received the award during the ceremonies held last February 17 at the Adamson University Theater.
