Company Description
Manila Bulletin Publishing Corporation (MB) was founded as the Daily Bulletin on February 2, 1900 for the purpose of engaging in the publishing business. The Company was incorporated on June 12, 1912 as Bulletin Publishing Company and re-incorporated on September 25, 1959 as Bulletin Publishing Corporation. On June 22, 1989, the corporate name was amended to the present one.

When the MB started publication, the contents of the newspaper mainly centered on the commercial and economic conditions in Panay and Negros. From then on, the newspaper grew to become a national newspaper. The broad sheet, Manila Bulletin is published seven days a week. MB also publishes the “Philippine Panorama”, a Sunday weekly magazine; “Style Weekend”, a Friday weekly magazine; and “Travel Magazine”, every second and fourth Thursday of the month. Published daily are the tabloid newspapers, “Tempo” in English and “Balita” in Filipino. Once every quarter, MB publishes the “Digital Generation Magazine”.

The Company also publishes monthly magazines in full color, catering to the different sectors of the reading public such as “Agriculture”, “Cruising”, “Sense and Style”, “Animal Scene”, and “Sports Digest”. In addition to the magazines, MB publishes weekly vernacular magazines such as “Liwayway” in Tagalog, “Bisaya” in Cebuano, “Bannawag” in Ilocano, and “Hiligaynon” in Ilonggo. These magazines highlight cultural development and stories from the different provinces as well as national news of regional concerns.
