Ang Bagong Kampeon (English: The New Champion) was a nationally televised amateur singing contest that aired on Radio Philippines Network (Solar TV) in the Philippines. It was hosted by Bert Marcelo and Pilita Corrales. The television show has launched the careers of several successful singers, notably, Regine Velasquez and Donna Cruz.[1]

The show also had a contestant named Josephine Roberto (aka "Banig"), who later defeated Christina Aguilera on the way to become Female Vocalist Champion in the 1989 edition of Star Search in the United States.

Later in 1989, Ang Bagong Kampeon was again aired in RPN 9 which was hosted by Pepe Pimentel and Amy Perez. Among the notable contestant was Teofanes Barbi Daclan who sang songs of Matt Monro and made up to the grand finals.
