IBC 13 being revived with new TV shows

Back in the 80's, when there was no Kapamilya, Kapuso or Kapatid yet, IBC 13 is the no. 1 TV station in the country besting the other four other networks then in the local free channels (2, 4, 7 and 9).

Top programs of channel 13, which banners the "Life begins at 13" mantra back then, are Ora Engkantanda, Pinoy Thriller, TODAS, Iskul Bukol, Takeshi's Castle and others.

The top shows and popular stars of the network were long gone and it just became a venue for reruns, government announcements and non-commercialized programs.

Starting tomorrow, June 2, a new line-up of shows will be presented to the viewing public for a more interesting programming in recent years.
