Julius Babao banners Frontline Pilipinas as ‘Beteranong Journo at Lingkod Bayan’


News5 headlines the year 2022 with another broadcasting jewel to banner its primetime as seasoned news anchor and journalist Julius Babao formally joins Frontline Pilipinas.


A broadcast personality for over three decades, Babao steps into the frontlines as a “beteranong journo” and “lingkod bayan” to deliver the day’s top stories with fellow veteran anchor Cheryl Cosim. Together they will deliver the most pressing issues on politics, the economy, welfare, and the COVID-19 crisis.



Babao’s transfer to the Kapatid Network raises the ante for TV5 especially as it gears up for its coverage of the elections in May. Babao’s over 30 years of experience serves to add to the combined journalistic expertise of its roster of anchors.


Aside from anchoring Frontline Pilipinas, Babao seeks to continue his life mission of service to Filipinos through a program that aims to extend exceptionally generous assistance to select and deserving small and medium scale enterprise (SMSE) owners and even underground economy-reliant Filipinos even as the country navigates the economic and social challenges ahead. 



Babao started his journalistic career with GMA 7’s DZBB in 1990 before moving to ABS-CBN in 1993 as a reporter for its flagship newscast. He later anchored the station’s morning show with his wife Christine Bersola in 1996 and then filled co-anchor duties in  various primetime, evening and weekend newscasts before finally wrapping-up his 28-year stint with the Kapamilya Network last year. 


Watch Julius Babao’s daily broadcast in Frontline Pilipinas starting Feb. 7, every 5:30PM, live on TV5 and via livestream at News5 Facebook and YouTube pages.
