    MCGI Launches Special Ang Dating Daan Anniversary Multimedia

     

    Members Church of God International (MCGI) has launched on October 31 a special anniversary website to commemorate the 31st anniversary of Ang Dating Daan television program, featuring an interactive timeline of the program's history and the awards received by its host, Bro Eli Soriano.

    The rich, experiential multimedia platform, which can be accessed at  www.angdatingdaan.org/add31, was launched to coincide and accompany the special anniversary presentation aired by UNTV.

    The interactive timeline allows online visitors to trace the humble beginnings of the Ang Dating Daan program as a 30-minute radio show through to its international broadcasts in the six continents of the world today.

    Ang Dating Daan aired its first radio episode in 1980 with only three production staff, including Bro Eli Soriano as the program host. The then 16-year-old Daniel Razon, now one of the country's veteran broadcast journalists, was director, cameraman and editor, while Sis Luz Cruz is makeup artist and researcher.

    The program entered mainstream television in 1983 to accompany its radio programming. Due to Bro Eli's unique style in preaching and his mastery of the Bible, he soon earned the admiration of radio host Manolo Favis who invited the preacher to become one of the panelists in his radio show. Soon, Bro Eli became the only mainstay resource person for the former's radio program, Genius Family.

    Ang Dating Daan's foray in the Internet began in 1999 with the launch of www.angdatingdaan.org, which soon became one of the more popular online destinations for the curious Bible and religious researchers, and also for fans of Bro Eli Soriano's debates with religious pastors.

    AngDatingDaan.org is six times Most Popular Website of the Year, from 2002 to 2008, given by the Philippine Web Awards. In 2009, the same award was given to Bro. Eli Soriano's Truth Blog, esoriano.wordpress.com.
