ABS-CBN will take Filipinos to this year’s biggest religious event with a special week-long, multi-platform coverage of the canonization of Popes John Paul II and John XXIII with special features leading to the canonization ceremony on Sunday (April 27).
This week, broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez and the ABS-CBN Europe News Bureau Team led by Danny Buenafe have been delivering special reports on the life of the two Popes, their roots, priesthood and papacy, miracles, legacy, and devotion to the Lord and His flock.
The historic event will be covered by ABS-CBN on TV, cable TV, radio, and online. The actual canonization ceremony, meanwhile, will be aired live from the Vatican City at 4 PM on ABS-CBN. The special coverage of the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) will be anchored by Karmina Constantino and will be streamed live on ABS-CBNNews.com beginning 3PM. DZMM Radyo Patrol Sais Trenta and DZMM TeleRadyo will also give non-stop updates on the event starting at 2 PM.
The main canonization ceremony will be aired in full by ANC, DZMM, and ABS-CBNNews.com. Aside from the latest developments from the Vatican, ABS-CBN will provide live reports from the Araneta Coliseum and the Pope John Paul II Chapel in Eastwood where special masses and tributes will be held.
The country’s largest news organization will also go full force in covering the visit of U.S. President Barack Obama – his fifth in Asia and the first in the Philippines on Monday and Tuesday (April 28-29).
