GMA Network continues to expand its nationwide coverage with the launch of its originating station in Ilocos this month of June.

This is part of the network's goal for expansion in Northern Luzon.

Wrapping up the day is a Kapuso Night filled with exciting games for the audience and live performances from the Kapuso stars.

Oliver Amoroso, Assistant Vice President for Sales and Marketing of GMA Regional TV, says “The Network has prepared long and hard for its originating station in Ilocos, so it is just fitting that we kick off its launch with a loud bang together with our Kapusong Ilokanos. We are certain that they will enjoy the Kapuso Day with everything that’s in store for them, and we hope that this would mark the start of us being closer to their hearts.”
