Umagang Kay Ganda (lit. A Beautiful Morning) is a morning show airing in the Philippines on ABS-CBN, ABS-CBN Regional Network Group, and simulcasts on ABS-CBN News Channel. The show premiered on June 25, 2007 and airs every weekday mornings from 5:00 – 8:00 AM.
The main ingredient they have added in this morning show is audience interaction and participation. In line with this new format, they are airing their show from Club O (formerly Dish) in the ABS-CBN compound to make the show more accessible to the public. The show includes live Traffic points and Regional News. They had set up six traffic points within Metro Manila.
These are similar to the opt-outs during BBC Breakfast and during GMTV. The only difference is that sometimes, Umagang Kay Ganda is interrupted abruptly. Another thing, because selected cities have their own local shows in the morning, the anchors of the 6:00 News bulletin do not turn over to the cities formally for their local show, unlike the BBC Breakfast. The following cities interrupt Umagang Kay Ganda to air their own local morning show starting from 6:15am to 7:00am:
- Davao - Maayong Buntag Mindanao
- Cebu - Maayong Buntag Kapamilya
- Cagayan de Oro - Pamahaw Espesyal
- Iloilo - Sikat Ka! Iloilo
- General Santos City - Magandang Umaga South Central Mindanao
- Baguio - Naimbag nga Morning Kapamilya
- Bacolod - The Morning Show
- Dagupan - Bagong Umaga, Bagong Balita
- Batangas - Gising na Maagang Southern Tagalog
- Naga - Marhay na Aga Kapamilya
