Welcome to Metro News Central.
The news and information gateway of one of the largest metropolis in the world--Mega Manila.
Being at the center of the nation’s economic, political, education, cultural and political front, Metro Manila-- certainly deserves a daily news source that would inspire direct engagement among its stakeholders and local government units as well.
The everyday challenges that confront its local government leaders and more importantly their respective constituency are wide ranging and obstinate, to say the least.
News stories and reportage that emanates from conventional and regular media outlets ---specifically print and broadcast networks—more often than not carry either the usual crime stories or issues oriented news that varies from typical social and political issues to run-of-the mill national news reportage.
Metro News Central envisions and hopes to fill-out the vacuum of important and critical information about Mega Manila and its multi-local governments comprised of Sixteen (16) highly urbanized cities and one municipality with an estimated combined population of almost 13 million.
Public awareness on high-impact socio-economic programs of cities within the Metropolis has remained wanting and hollow.
Meanwhile, daily news coverage and reportage of major newspapers, broadcast and television networks other conventional media outlets have remained focused on news stories that would “sell”.
Majority if not all television news networks carry--as their evening news headliners—crime or police stories, political issues and related sensational news. The same holds true with broadcast news and leading newspapers that will likewise prioritize in their respective front-pages the next day.
Metro News Central’s core mission is to provide important and critical information that could help ease or alleviate the travails of living in the so-called “Big City”.
Metro News Central will serve as a platform for positive yet relevant news and information that directly concern and affect the constituencies of mega Manila’s highly urbanized multi-cities.
Our existence is our own small way of being able to contribute in harnessing the culture of cooperation, unity and discipline among Mega Manila’s stakeholders.
At the same time, our news and information portal encourages and hopes to generate massive engagement from among Mega Manilan’s and act as their sounding board so that their concerns could reach their respective local government leaders, in particular and the national government, in general.
