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.
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.
