Gretchen Ho Brings Travel, Adventure, and Public Service With ‘Woman In Action’

Most of us know Gretchen Ho as a star athlete which paved the way to many opportunities to try out new careers along with sports. And with this background, makes her a very active woman in her prime that can do a lot of things beyond her sport.

She did ventured into broadcasting for quite some time, which also honed her talent. Now she has a new show that will be a mix of travel, adventure and public service calld WOMAN IN ACTION to be aired on One News channel.

This new show  she explores remote places in the country, highlighting not just their beauty, but also the unique stories of the communities that will inspire and move people to action. Premiering on October 1, 7:30 pm on Cignal TV’s One News, with a catch-up airing the next day at 8:00 pm on One PH, Woman In Action celebrates life and the countless adventures the world has to offer. Gretchen will take viewers on a riveting journey of awesome discoveries, and at the same time, bringing to light the situation of each community.

“I’ve found that traveling is best done by going off the beaten path. As a runner, I’ve made it a point to run in each destination I go to, and the streets always reveal something that tourist destinations won’t. It’s in connecting with the people that we really understand and learn about a place. What you will find in this show is not just a sense of adventure, but also a desire to create sustainable impact everywhere we go. That impact isn’t a one-way street though, as we, together with the audiences, seek to be moved and changed by what we see, hear and know” said Gretchen Ho.

Something unique about the show are How To’s and challenges, featuring stories about different individuals and communities, and addressing social problems with a call to action. She also looks up to travel and public service personalities like Gina Lopez, and Drew Arellano who have great travel shows.

“What I’ve found in my years working in the media is that there are many young brilliant people all over the country just waiting for an opportunity. My show seeks to be a vehicle for that – to connect those people to local communities and to our audiences, in an effort to create, not just memories, but also, opportunities. I’m excited for this chance to be able to write and document some of the stories and take a more active part as producer of the show”, added Gretchen.

As an all-around and hardworking woman-in-action, Gretchen has been on a blazing path from her college volleyball days up to her illustrious hosting career. Honed by her dedication and passionate work, Gretchen has become an icon among this generation’s empowered women who weather the proverbial storms in pursuit of their life goals. The success of her recent campaign, #DonateABikeSaveAJob, helped a thousand families, with more than 1,500 bicycles donated to frontliners and workers for easier transportation during the height of the pandemic. Truly a Woman in Action, Gretchen inspires women to stay true to their calling, find their courage and willpower, and forge their own path to success.
