CNN Philippines Network News
Balitaan is the flagship Filipino language newscast of CNN Philippines. It premiered on April 4, 2016, and airs on weekdays at 12nn PST. Balitaan took over the timeslot of the noontime and original edition of CNN Philippines Newsroom and is anchored by Pinky Webb.
Balitaan is unique among other midday and afternoon newscasts on CNN Philippines, as it is airs on its normal format despite any live rolling coverage (such as Senate hearings or important developing stories) that might pre-empt other newscasts in their respective timeslots. Rolling coverage continues after the newscast in case the former is needed to provide added information.
