Aksyon Bisaya was a regional newscast of TV5 in Cebu City. It airs every Monday to Friday at 3:45 pm over TV5 Cebu Channel-21, AksyonTV-29 Cebu and pre-empts Movie Max 5 and game days of the PBA. It is anchored by Glenn Anthony Soco and Atty. Georgia Herrera. The newscast is simulcast on radio through Radyo 5 101.9 News FM.


The newscast was premiered as the first regional version of Aksyon on July 18, 2011, with Atty. Ruphil Bañoc and Darlanne Sino Cruz as the pioneering anchors of the newscast.[1] As part of the launch, TV5 upgraded the facilities in Cebu by constructing a new transmission site in Mount Busay and renovations in their studio in Capitol Road.[2] On April 2013, Atty. Frank Malilong, Jr. and Atty. Georgia Hererra were named as new anchors of Aksyon Bisaya, replacing Bañoc, who have conflict of interest on his contract with RMN DYHP Cebu and Sino Cruz, who remained focus on her business.[2] Malilong, Jr., resigned from anchoring the newscast on May 2014,[3] and it was later replaced by known Cebu businessman Glenn Soco.

On September 2015, Aksyon Bisaya lost three of its reporters, Dennis Tanoc, Andrea Pateña and King Anthony Perez after they accept the Special Limited Voluntary Separation Program offer given by the TV5's higher-ups.[4]

On September 8, 2016, Aksyon Bisaya (after 5 years) and Davao's Aksyon Dabaw were cancelled due to cost-cutting measures by the network to sustain its day-by-day operations. Although the newscast was ended, the reporters and cameramen were remain employed and they will continue to give reports for Aksyon newscast seen nationally on TV5 and for Radyo5.[5]
