Capt. Joy Roa hosts “Asian Air Safari,” the only aviation and travel-adventure show in Asia!

Discover and experience Africa from the unique perspective of a real life pilot in the newest and seventh season of flying adventure and travel show, Asian Air Safari beginning on July 22, Sunday, on ANC. Host and producer Capt. Joy Roa will take viewers past popular tourist spots by immersing in the wild, culture, people, sights, and cuisine of the most exotic locations in the continent and showing spectacular vistas that can only be seen from the skies.

Asian Air Safari,” the only aviation and travel-adventure show in Asia, has transported viewers to the most popular and unusual locales in 150 cities in 38 countries across all continents, except Antarctica for a total of 86 episodes, including the new eight episodes of season 7.

When asked to name three unpopular destinations overlooked by travelers, Roa said it would be the Pacific side of northern Luzon for its nice beaches and coastline, the atoll islands between Zamboanga and Jolo that are better than Maldives, and Bugsuk Island.

Roa, a well-loved and influential figure in the aviation industry with 34 years of experience, also revealed that aside from Africa, the new season will present features of his multi-continental adventures, including cross country flights, a stopover in New Delhi, a helicopter race against motorcycle ridersfrom Manila to Laoag, and a tour on Oshima Island, Japan. He also flew a brand new Phenom 300 jet with stops in Kuala Lumpur and Bali, before landing in Perth, Australia.

“Flying on my own makes the world smaller and allows me to accomplish more by saving a lot of time. Traveling enables me to deepen my understanding of the world through seeing the great structures andmonuments made throughout the history of different cultures,” said Capt. Joy, who is also the organizer of the annual Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.

An inspiration to aviation and travel enthusiasts, Capt. Joy hopes to impart his passion for flying and encourage viewers to explore the Philippines and rally for the improvement of the country’s reputation as a premier tourist destination.

“In our show, we make a conscious effort to reveal the often overlooked places and make known how important it is for the country to recognize their potential and invest in developing it,” he said.

Capt. Joy has made aviation to be his show’s advocacy after observing that the industry was in bad shape and needed to be given attention. “We were hoping to show the numerous contributions of aviation to the country’s economy and encourage the new generation of aviators to start their careers early,” he said.

Check out the world’s most breathtaking destinations without leaving the comfort of your homes fromCapt. Joy Roa in “Asian Air Safari,” Sundays, 8:30 p.m. starting July 22 on ANC.

ANC Kicks Off Year-Long Election Primer ‘Road to 2013′!

A year before the 2013 polls, ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel, embarks on a year-long primer that will present comprehensive analyses of sectors, personalities, and components critical to the upcoming elections in “ANC Presents: Road to 2013” anchored by veteran political reporter and news anchor Lynda Jumilla every Tuesday at 7 p.m.

Lynda, together with political scientists, experts, elections officials, and prominent politicians, will chart out the local political and electoral landscape in the coming months in the program, which started last March 27. Significant topics that were already discussed in the program were the implication of latest senatorial surveys, potential alliances and candidates, and lessons and problems from the first automated elections in 2010.

“I hope to be able to give the viewers the same substantial political discussions and interviews they have come to expect from ANC, with a bit of my own perspective and insight thrown in,” Lynda said.

With more than a decade of broadcast journalism experience, Lynda has reported on the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government for print, radio, and TV and also co-anchors ANC’s coverage of Chief Justice Renato Corona’s impeachment trial and Studio 23’s noontime newscast “Iba-Balita.”

Having covered the biggest and most controversial personalities and issues in the government, Lynda will try to challenge viewers’ own biases and preferences to become wiser voters by 2013.

“The show delivers in-depth, extensive, and interactive discussions and interviews, but from time to time, I’ll try to drop bits and pieces of trivia, behind-the-scenes, and little-known facts on the goings-on in the political sphere,” she said.

On May 13, 2013, the country’s estimated 54 million voters will troop to polling precincts to cast their ballot in the midterm elections. What’s in store for the country’s second automated elections? And how is the senatorial race shaping up so far?

ANC, the country’s first and only 24/7 news channel, is known for breaking the biggest news as they happen and has been in the forefront of past election coverages, groundbreaking election specials, forums, and projects.

Catch “ANC Presents: Road to 2013” with Lynda Jumilla only on ANC (SkyCable Channel 27), 7 p.m. every Tuesday. For updates, follow @ANCALERTS (#Roadto2013) on Twitter or like ANC 24/7 on Facebook.
