Abante is a daily Filipino tabloid publication in the Philippines. Its office is in Makati City and it is owned by Prage Management Services, a start-up company owned by veteran journalists Rey Marfil and Gil Cabacungan, Jr. who took over the management and operations of Abante and its sister tabloid, Abante Tonite from the Monica Publishing Corporation of the Macasaet family in October 2017.[1] Aside from Abante and Abante Tonite, the newspaper also operates Abante: TNT (Tunay na Tabloidista), a real-time online news website, Radyo Tabloidista online radio and Celebrity Radar, an entertainment magazine.

During the State of Emergency in 2006, operatives from the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group tried to raid Abante's office but withdrew when they saw that there were television crew in the area.[2]
