PHILIPPINE Consul General Medardo Macaraig will be the first guest in the premiere episode of “Usapang Pinoy Saipan,” a talk and entertainment show for all Filipinos that will be launched in the second week of September.
The show is produced by Digital Motion under production manager Edwin Sta. Theresa, and will be hosted by Anna Mae Adaza and Michelle Villaraza.
Sta. Theresa said “Usapang Pinoy Saipan” will cover issues and concerns of Filipino guest workers not only on Saipan but the entire CNMI.
“The first episode is ready for airing with Consul General Macaraig as our guest,” Sta. Theresa said. The second episode will feature Overseas Workers Welfare Administration representative Julie Fabian.
“The talk show aims to give Filipinos an avenue to air their views about pressing matters like their status in the CNMI, and other concerns,” Sta. Theresa said.
He said the program also hopes to give inspiration and hope to Filipino workers facing an uncertain future.
Sta. Theresa said they have been working on the talk show for the past months.
“We encourage Filipinos here to give us feedback and send us suggestions for upcoming episodes by logging on to our Facebook page (Usapang Pinoy Saipan),” Sta. Theresa said.
After the first few episodes, they are planning to go live so people can interact and call in to submit questions and suggestions.
“We are inviting you to watch the show as soon as it goes on air — and participate in the program to help our fellow Filipino workers,” Sta. Theresa said.
“Usapang Pinoy Saipan” will be aired from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursdays and Sundays on Channel 14, the Weather Channel. (First published at the Marianas Variety)
