ABS-CBN Integrated News & Current Affairs is the news and current affairs organization of ABS-CBN in the Philippines. The organization is responsible for the daily news and information gathering of the network's news & current affairs programs. According to a SWS media trust survey, ABS-CBN News & Current Affairs topped the list, garnering 68% of public trust; thus its current slogan "Panig sa Katotohanan, Panig sa Bayan" (Sides for the Truth, Sides for the People).

It serves the main ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation, ABS-CBN Regional Network Group, Studio 23, ABS-CBN Radio (both AM and FM networks) and the ABS-CBN News Channel. The division operates mainly from the ABS-CBN Broadcast Complex in Quezon City while the regional ABS-CBN stations also have their local news divisions, which also help in newsgathering for the whole network. It also has several foreign bureaus -- one each in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and now in Australia with the help of ABS-CBN Global.

The organization is split into three sub-groups:

Aside from regular programming, ANC also covers breaking news reports and special national and international news events. The ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) is the first and only 24-hour cable news channel in the Philippines.

The ABS-CBN News official website is a result of the alliance of ABS-CBN News and the two leading broadsheets in the country, The Philippine Star and The Manila Times.
