Andar ng mga Balita (lit. Movement of the News) was the flagship newscast of AksyonTV in the Philippines. The newscast airs from Monday to Friday 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 n.n. local time. It is anchored by Martin Andanar and Chi Bocobo with reports from MJ Marfori, Danton Remoto and Seph Ubalde. The show was replaced by the second of four editions of Aksyon sa Tanghali.


The newscast was based on the morning radio newscast of the same title hosted by Andanar on Radyo5 92.3 News FM. The program launched a weekend edition that aired on February 26–27, 2011 with Jove Francisco and Chi Bocobo as its co-anchors. However, the weekend edition ended to be replaced by Balitang 60 on March 5, 2011.

On June 3, 2013, the newscast moved to the daytime slot at 11:00 a.m. after Aksyon Solusyon as AksyonTV give way to its sports programming on primetime.

On Friday, July 11, 2014, Andar ng mga Balita aired its last broadcast reverting to Radyo5 92.3 News FM simulcast and as preparation to the launch of Aksyon sa Tanghali on July 21.
