The Philippines-based award giving body which is now on its 11th year aims to “give recognition and uplift the value of excellence in business industry and prominent personalities.”
The management of EBC thanked the Golden Globe Awards Council for the award given this year 2018 as EBC celebrates its 50th year anniversary.
“This is very timely. This year is EBC’s golden anniversary. We thank the Golden Globe Awards Council for recognizing our efforts and our commitment to care for the total well-being of the audience through engaging wholesome, family values-oriented and public service media content,” EBC President Deimoy said.
