About Manila Metro

A news beacon in the Filipino metropolis

Publication devoted to the capital of the Philippines and the second largest city in the country by population after Quezon City.

Located on the eastern shore of Manila Bay and home to many landmarks, some of which date back to the 16th century, Manila is just part of the broader Metro Manila greater metropolitan area which includes the much larger Quezon City, and the Makati CBD (Central Business District).

Manila Metro, an online news portal, as its name conveys, is a news service for the entire Metro Manila region, covering breaking news from the capital and surrounding districts and individual cities.

Manila Metro, which has adopted the slogan 'A news beacon in the Filipino metropolis,' in addition to Manila news, covers the international arena and business world. Articles from the Asia Pacific region also feature.

Title: Manila Metro


Mission: Manila Metro was conceived in 2002 to provide up-to-the minute local news, together with national and international headlines as part of a global network pooling resources to deliver a quality service to member portals. Each online publication has been modelled on a newspaper format for familiar readability by users. The locations forming part of the network were selected on the basis of demand for news for that location. Manila Metro, effectively an online newspaper, provides coverage of the city and metropolitan Manila. International news, business and finance stories are common across the network of sites, and are drawn from a number of sources including original in-house journalists and wire services.

Manila Metro and the other sites are administered by Midwest Radio Network.

Associated sites include: Asia Bulletin | Australian Herald | China National News | Japan Herald | North Korea Times | Philippine Times | Singapore Star Taiwan Sun | Hong Kong Herald
