GMA Flash Report is an hourly news bulletin of GMA Network in the Philippines, replacing GMA News Live on March 18, 2002. Every weekends, between 11:00 PM and 12:00 AM, a thirty-minute edition of the newscast entitled GMA Flash Report: Special Edition is aired with Mariz Umali as news anchor. Previously, its special edition was hosted by Pia Arcangel. On June 23, 2007, the weekend special edition was replaced by GMA Weekend Report.

GMA was the first Philippine television network to show hourly news bulletins. The program usually features a traffic ticker and previews other GMA News and Public Affairs programs. The program also serves as the breaking news broadcast of the GMA Network. Live reports usually head the news line-up.

When a developing story breaks, GMA airs GMA Breaking News instead of GMA Flash Report.
