MANILA, Philippines - "TV Patrol" was nominated in the 2011 International Emmy Awards for its comprehensive coverage of the Manila Hostage Crisis in 2010.

In a ceremony held at the Harry Cipriani restaurant in Manhattan, ABS-CBN Senior Vice President for News and Current Affairs Regina Reyes gratefully accepted the medal and certificate of nomination.

She said, “We are very glad that our efforts were recognized by the academy. Nagpapasalamat po kami sa lahat ng mga hurado na nakapili sa ‘TV Patrol’ bilang finalist at ito ay dahil sa kagalingan, kasipagan at dedikasyon ng mga nagtatrabaho sa likod ng ‘TV Patrol.’”

This is ABS-CBN News’ second nomination in the prestigious award-giving body.

In 2007, “Bandila” was nominated for its coverage of the Subic rape case trial.

According to Reyes, the recognition is not only an honor for ABS-CBN but for the entire country as well.

She said, “Karangalan natin na makasabay, makasama ang iba't ibang news organization mula sa iba't-ibang bahagi ng mundo at maging ang mga pangunahing news organization at networks dito sa America tulad ng CNN, NBC, CBS at ABC News.” –Report from Don Tagala, ABS-CBN New York
