Television programs and TV personalities deemed child-safe programs and worth emulating in the recently held Anak TV Awards.

The Anak TV Seal is awarded to programs deemed as “wholesome” and “generally child safe” by the jurors.

GMA Network's Vice President for News Programs Jessica Soho led the female recipients of the Makabata stars while ABS-CBN actor Coco Martin led the male recipients.

This marks the first time that Coco topped the list of male "Makabata Stars" although he has been honored by Anak TV for four consecutive years. This year marks the second time that Jessica bagged the No. 1 slot and the 7th time that she is included as one of the "most admired, most child-friendly TV Personalities for 2012."

In an interview aired on GMA-7, Jessica was quoted as saying: "Natutuwa ako na ang mga bata nanood ng ating mga programa sa News and Public Affairs. Ibig sabihin, tumatalab sa kanila ang mensahe na nakapaloob sa ating mga programa at tumatagos rin sa kanilang mga puso ang mabuting asal na gusto nating matutunan nila. Nang sa gayon, makatulong tayo sa paghubog ng kanilang isipan at karakter. Malaking tulong iyon sa ating lipunan."

Meanwhile, 7 out of the top 10 Most Well-Liked TV Programs in the country for 2012 were from ABS-CBN. Primetime newscast TV Patrol clinched the top spot followed by now defunct drama series Walang Hanggan. Other Kapamilya shows included in the top ten are Matanglawin, It’s Showtime, Be Careful with My Heart, Maalaala Mo Kaya, and Princess and I.

GMA-7's Wish Ko Lang tied with the ABS-CBN teleserye Princess and I for the ninth slot in the top list. 24 Oras, Eat Bulaga and Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho were among the Kapuso shows honored this year.

ABS-CBN emerged as the most awarded network in this year’s Anak TV with 25 seals versus GMA-7 with 15 seals and TV5 with 9 seals.

The 11th Anak TV seal awarding ceremony was held in the Lord’s Flock Sanctuary in West Avenue, Quezon City hosted by Anak TV spokesperson Mikee Cojuangco Jaworski.
