Jove Francisco is a current broadcast journalist in TV5.[1]


Among 17 other journalists from different international media organizations including CNN, Jove Francisco is the only Filipino reporter to be accepted as a fellow in the Journalist to Journalist (J2J) program of the AIDS Vaccine 2011 Journalist Training Program Fellows by the Washington-based National Press Foundation held recently in Bangkok.

He has been covering health, social media and political beats for 15 years already—spanning four administrations from Ramos to Aquino. He currently co-anchors TV5’s late night newscast Pilipinas News and AksyonTV’s Balitang 60. Francisco also co-hosts Radyo Singko’s Reaksyon.

His name was mentioned by then-Rep. Gilbert Remulla during the congressional investigation on the "Hello Garci" controversy.
