24 Oras Ilokano, formerly Balitang Ilokano is a Philippine television newscast show broadcast by GMA Network in the Ilocos Region. It premiered on June 25, 2012. The newscast concluded on April 24, 2015. It was replaced by Balitang Amianan in its timeslot.
The program delivers news and current events coming from the Ilocos provinces and Abra. It is initially aired live weekdays from GMA Ilocos studios in San Vicente, Ilocos Sur and was simulcasted on TV-5 Ilocos Norte and TV-7 Abra.
Premiered on June 25, 2012, the newscast began its airing weeks after the launch of GMA Ilocos. Former Balitang Amianan anchor Jorge Guerrero returned to his hometown in Ilocos just to anchor the said news program.
The newscast, suddenly got cancelled after more than two and a half years of broadcast (next to GMA Bicol's 24 Oras Bikol, formerly Baretang Bikol, which aired three months later in September 2012) due to the strategic streamlining happened to all provincial stations of the network. Following the cancellation was the retrenchment of its staff and personalities and the closure of the network's regional news department.
