“Hindi namin kayo tatantanan”. This battle cry has been known and associated with one television program: Imbestigador.
Fifteen years ago, GMA News and Public Affairs launched Imbestigador, a public service program whose mission is to be the go-to place of vigilant citizens and be the public’s defense against injustices. Hosted by GMA News pillar and seasoned broadcast journalist Mike Enriquez, Imbestigador took investigative reporting to the next level by giving voice to the oppressed and righting wrongs for the ordinary people. In essence, it has not only aired grievances but provided concrete solutions to the victims of injustices of numerous ills in society – from anomalies and corruption to unscrupulous activities and various other crimes. Imbestigador also broke new ground on television when it pioneered using actual footage of gripping surveillance operations in the pursuit of its stories.
Imbestigador did not fail. It made true to its promise. With the help of different agencies and offices, unscrupulous individuals were arrested, prosecuted and put behind bars. Big-time syndicates were busted; illegal and detrimental establishments were closed down and victims were rescued and kept out of harm’s way.
As the program begins its 15th year, Imbestigador, now the country’s longest-running investigative program and one of GMA News and Public Affairs flagship programs, strengthens the public service brand that it has long been known for – to go after those who break the law and those who believe they are above the law. To heed public clamor, beginning January 9, Imbestigador reverts to its action-packed episodes by doing stories based from complaints of the public and bringing justice against guilty parties. Week after week, Imbestigador will attempt to do exposes tackling a wide range of stories dealing with illegal and unscrupulous activities as it has been known for.
For the upcoming episode, Imbestigador will give the full story behind its exclusive operation of an online pornography operating in Cebu. Coincidentally, in its desire to tackle the biggest issues that matter, Imbestigador also launches its special election segments titled “Isyu ni Juan”. “Isyu ni Juan” is a ten-part special election series which goes beyond personalities but tackles key issues that confront the Filipinos. The special election series also intends to present and examine the respective campaign platforms and specific plans of the presidential aspirants in addressing specific issues. Imbestigador host Mike Enriquez snatched exclusive one-on-one interviews of all the leading presidential hopefuls for this important election series.
