Sam Verzosa's "DEAR SV" Starts Broadcast on GMA

Thursday, November 16, 2023

Looks like there will be more reasons to watch DEAR SV, which is on its 3rd season and will now be broadcasted on GMA. Previously, it was on CNN Philippines where Sam Verzosa tried to target folks with inspiring stories, in hopes to showcase them, learn, help and possibly change their lives through sustainable businesses.

Sam Verzosa says "All of the things I received from God and the success I got in life, I'd be willing to share with others and lend a hand. The show is filled with tories of  hope, if you have a wish for someone else, DEAR SV is going to be there. I lived a hard life, but this didn't stop me from working hard and get ourselves (and my family) out of poverty. Thank you so much for spending time with me today." 

Volleybelle and actress Michelle Gumabao hosted the press conference, I remember her from Smart events.

He adds "It's a very humbling experience to have been able to be with them for a few days and see how they live their lives on a daily basis. From tricycle drivers, to a man with odd jobs in order to care of his son who has cerebral palsy, to a rider who now has his own bike because of the show, we were able to showcase their lives on Dear SV. My inspiration has always been my Dad, my late Father made me realize how we look at people , to see what they go through even at their condition. There are a lot of people who need our help, it changed my outlook, and I hope it goes the same for those who watch the show and do the same. I've already seen some of the people in Frontrow do their charity work, they learn from stories of ordinary people. "

Aside from employment and sports programs, Sam Verzosa has been spearheading several businesses, and recently won Philanthropist of the Year Award by American Association of the Philippines in 2020 and 2021. He (together with business partner RS Francisco) also got recognized as Humanitarians of the Year by People Asia Magazine.

He talked about making episodes of this show and said "During shoots, I am in my comfort zone because I'm just being myself, I eat what they eat and accompany them wherever they go. It's like an immersion, and I'm so happy to have been able to do this in the show."

Here's our event coverage on video, please enjoy!

DEAR SV will be in GMA every Saturdays at 11:30PM. It's not just for public service, but will tell stories of different individuals that will make you learn more about life, hope and perhaps inspire other people further. While it was already doing good during the CNN Philippines time, there will be a wider audience when it gets shown on GMA. The show has heart, and hopefully you'll feel that too. Make sure you spend time see it on weekends, and on GMA's YouTube if you miss episodes.
