GMA ONE Online Exclusives for Millennials

Millennials are in for a wonderful surprise this 2018 as GMA Network unveils three-in-one online exclusive shows bannered by new GMA Public Affairs host Atom Araullo in Adulting with Atom Araullo, Millennial “it” girl Gabbi Garcia in #Goals with Gabbi Garcia and GMA reporter Joseph Morong in Fact or Fake with Joseph Morong at the press launch of “GMA One Online Exclusives” starting January 1, 2018, Monday, at 5 p.m. over the official YouTube channel of GMA 7 at
The 35-year-old Atom joins millennials in their journey towards adulthood. He gives netizens a peek at his everyday struggles as he faces the responsibilities of being on his own and living on a budget. And, yes, Atom also shares tips on love: how does one go through courtship and online dating?
Adulting means to carry out one or more of the duties and responsibilities expected of fully developed individuals (paying off that credit card debt, settling beef without blasting social media, etc).
Adulting is exclusively used by those who adult less than 50 percent of the time.
“We hope to talk about the different challenges we face as we enter the adult world,” said Atom in an interview.
“Nobody teaches us these kinds of things. Sometimes we’re lucky to have friends or family to help us get into it painlessly, but for the most part, nangangapa tayo sa ganiyan.
“Everything from finding your own place, budgeting your money, making career decisions, personal relationships, or taxes, things like these. I feel like a lot of people can relate to these challenges,” he added.
Atom revealed during the event that he made an important adulting decision recently, that is, to live by himself, leaving the family home where he had been shacking with his parents and sibling since birth.
That’s a very crucial adulting decision which means he has to decide and do things on his own and for himself that includes finding out which is the better walis tambo that he did not even bother to know before this move.
He did that for a practical purpose, to move closer to where he works now, GMA Network in Quezon City, to circumvent the traffic mess. For all we know he is also planning to marry his girlfriend, which he did not bother to talk about.
Which is another adulting decision he has to tackle that he is a normal guy after all!

GOALS. Meanwhile, get inspired by Gabbi’s videos as she shares her personal objectives in #Goals with Gabbi Garcia.
Goals are objects of a person’s ambition or effort; aims or desired results.
A show that will definitely tickle the fancy of the kikays out there, #Goals with Gabbi Garcia sees Gabbi exploring her goals in beauty, style, makeup, travel, and music.
“We’re in a new age now where millennials appreciate digital content, they’re really into social media,” said Gabbi. “The show is very relatable to the youth because in #Goals, we will talk about makeup tutorials, new trends, how a typical teenager lives her life”.

FACT OR FAKE. Joseph, on the other hand, debunks false news items in Fact or Fake with Joseph Morong. As more news sources are available online, Joseph will try to help millennials spot fake news.
“Fact or Fake goes back to one of the tenets of journalism which is fact-checking,” Joseph explained.
“In the program, we’re going to define what fake news is as opposed to mistakes, misinformation, and disinformation. Bottom line is, we want to emphasize that in our society where there’s an overflow of information, it is important to be discerning,” he added.
Don’t miss GMA ONE Online Exclusives: Adulting with Atom Araullo, #Goals with Gabbi Garcia and Fact or Fake with Joseph Morong starting January 1, via GMA Network’s official YouTube account ( with new episodes uploaded every Monday at 5 p.m.
