Ratsada 24 Oras, formerly Ratsada and 24 Oras Western Visayas, was a Philippine regional news program aired over GMA Iloilo. It provides news and features around Iloilo City and Province of the same name and the rest of Western Visayas and Negros Island Region (particularly Bacolod City). The newscast airs every Monday to Friday 5:00 to 5:45 pm with its broadcast center located at MacArthur Drive, Jaro, Iloilo City. It is also heard on a slightly delayed basis through DYSI 1323 AM and simulcast over GMA Channel 2 Kalibo and GMA Channel 5 Roxas live. The newscast's anchors are Gerthrode Charlotte Tan and Atty. Jobert Peñaflorida (a former news anchor of TV Patrol Panay on ABS-CBN Iloilo). Ratsada 24 Oras has covered the entire Western Visayas and Negros Island Region and has increased its ability to provide comprehensive, effective and reliable news gathering.
The newscast began its airing on October 4, 1999. It was one of the three regional newscasts initially launched by the network along with Balitang Bisdak of GMA Cebu and Testigo of GMA Davao under the banner of GMA Super Balita. Jeja Rose Pornan-Simeon and Noly Calvo were the first anchors of the said news program.
Months later, the tandem was replaced by Gerthrode Charlotte Tan and Christopher Misajon, who was known as "Mr. Ratsada". The tandem of Tan and Misajon lasted until September 23, 2004, when Misajon was shot by a group of robbers and died two days later.
Misajon was replaced by Jonathan Gellangarin, who was a well-known radio personality in Western Visayas.
In October 2007, Ratsada began its simulcast on GMA Bacolod. The simulcast lasted until November 19, 2010, in preparation with the launch of its own regional news program Isyu Subong Negrense; and later returned in November 2012 until 2013.
On the newscast's 10th anniversary in 2009, Tan left the newscast temporarily leaving Gellangarin as the main anchor of the program.
In 2012, Gellangarin left the newscast and Tan returned together with Mark Nunieza as her co-anchor.
Following changes of 24 Oras (its now-main newscast), Ratsada was rebranded as 24 Oras Western Visayas on November 10, 2014. Lawyer and local broadcast journalist Jobert Peñaflorida took Nunieza's place who returned to his reportorial job to the newscast.
On July 20, 2015, 24 Oras Western Visayas was retitled Ratsada 24 Oras.
After more than 16 years (with Ratsada and 24 Oras Western Visayas' history inclusion), Ratsada 24 Oras went off-air on November 13, 2015, following the layoffs of more than 20 personnel in the Iloilo station (reporters, cameramen, technical personnel) as part of streamlining of operations (since April opposite 24 Oras Ilokano of GMA Ilocos, 24 Oras Bikol of GMA Bicol, Isyu Subong Negrense of GMA Bacolod and 24 Oras Northern Mindanao of GMA Northern Mindanao for having their final broadcast).
