The AMANO PERSPECTIVE Premieres July 14 on ANC Channel.

A very handsome and amiable Adel Tamano charmed the press today, July 8, 2011 to talk about a brand new current affairs talk show, “Tamano Perspective,” which is set to debut this Thursday (July 14) at 7pm on ANC SkyCable channel 27.

ANC will also premiere the new season of “View from the Top,” anchored by David Celdran, on Monday (July 11), 9:30pm. I am excited to see him again not only for his views but to see how quick he answers question from media unconsciously.


Every week, Tamano will examine the latest news stories that can range from nationalism to family values and social media. But more than featuring a roundup of news, Tamano goes one step further by giving his opinion, as a lawyer and educator, on each story.

He also explained that “There’s no fence-sitting allowed in the program. I’m not a journalist, I’m a lawyer and an advocate and so the show will reflect my training as a person who takes stands on issues. We want to present a point of view, a concrete and definite perspective on an issue, and we do this to encourage the viewer to take one as well.”

A broadcasting greenhorn, Tamano said he sees his newest venture as a great way to learn new skills, expand his base of life experiences, and more importantly, to find new ways of being of service to the people.

“I’ve always valued intelligent public debate and discussion and I saw anchoring a TV program as a way to bring some of that to the Philippine public,” he said. Tamano, the first Filipino Muslim to graduate from Harvard Law School, is currently the Dean of the College of Law at the Liceo de Cagayan University. He is also a partner at the Kapunan, Tamano, Javier & Associates

Tamano said his knowledge and firsthand experience of campaign politics gives him an advantage in his new job. “I won’t be a naive anchor discussing matters that I haven’t seen or experienced. I’ve been given a rare peek into the inner workings of power at the very highest levels of government. In a way, I’m a veteran – though young in age – in political experience and I hope to be able to use that experience so that I can provide better insight and analysis for our viewers,” he said.

Meanwhile, one of ANC’s senior anchors David Celdran returns with another season of “View From the Top,” a 30-minute feature on personalities at the top of their game.

The show aims to raise the bar of excellence in every endeavor by highlighting the discipline and ethic of renowned leaders and icons. It also talks about the lighter side of living on the top, revealing how bigwigs spend their free time to what causes or advocacies they adopt or support.

This season, the 20-year-broadcasting veteran gets to interview some of the country’s icons like construction legend David Consunji of DMC Inc., advertising guru Emily Abrera, the chair emeritus of McCann Ericsson.

Philippines, beauty doctor to the stars Dr. Vicki Belo of the Belo Medical Group, and Diosdado Banatao, the only Filipino major player in Silicon Valley. Celdran also anchors “Executive Class” on ANC and is the editor-in-chief of VAULT magazine, a luxury and lifestyle magazine for men.

Don’t miss “View From the Top” with David Celdran on Monday (July 11), 9:30 pm and the “Tamano Perspective” with Atty. Adel Tamano on Thursday (July 14) at 7pm on ANC SkyCable channel 27.
