Saksi sa Dobol B (lit. Eyewitness on Double-B) is a morning news and talk program aired by GMA Network Inc.'s flagship all-news radio station DZBB-AM, hosted by Mike Enriquez.

Background[edit]

Mike Enriquez anchors his radio program Saksi sa Dobol B.

The program premiered on February 7, 2000 as a spin-off of Saksi, a television newscast that Enriquez also hosted at the time. It replaced Tapatan with Jay Sonza after Sonza transferred to DZRH. This also marked Enriquez' return to radio. The program during 7:00 am to 8:00 am timeslot, was on the break as it was occupied by the newscast, Super Balita sa Umaga Nationwide.

On February 28, 2011, the program began its simulcast on GMA News TV along with Super Balita sa Umaga Nationwide under the Dobol B sa News TV block upon the christening of the said network. However, the simulcast ended on September 7, 2012, instead News TV aired reruns of Front Row and Reel Time on the timeslot formerly occupied by Dobol B as it would make way for a new morning show Kape at Balita in the following month.

From 2012 onwards, whenever Enriquez is not available, the news program is anchored by Melo del Prado on the first hour, then del Prado together with Joel Reyes Zobel will anchor Super Balita sa Umaga Nationwide at 7 am. After the newscast, either of del Prado or Reyes Zobel will solo-anchor the program up to 9 am. Dobol A sa Dobol B will then take over the last hour of Saksi sa Dobol B.

On April 24, 2017, Dobol B sa News TV returns to GMA News TV, marking the news channel's return to simulcast radio on television after its 4-year long hiatus, with Saksi sa Dobol B returned on the said block. The block airs from 6:00 am until 11:00 am.[1][2]
