It is also aired internationally thru GMA Pinoy TV at various times.

Background[edit]

Unang Hirit was first aired on GMA on December 6, 1999, replacing Mornings @ GMA. Mornings' hosts Lyn Ching, Suzi Entrata, Ryan Agoncillo with new faces of Mickey Ferriols, Arnold Clavio, and Miriam Quiambao started the show as the original hosts pitting up against ABS-CBN's Alas Singko Y Medya.

In July 15, 2002, Unang Hirit re-launched its studio set, & graphics. It changed its set & graphics again on March 15, 2004.

In 2005, UH host Daniel Razon left the show & reportedly resigned the network, Thus, later the show would later changed its logo with the clock mascot (used from 2005-2010).

On August 11, 2008, the show changed its set again, but the studio for Unang Balita was also used for QTV's Balitanghali & News on Q. Around 2009, Unang Hirit aired its special edition on Sunday for the typhoon coverage. On December 2009, the show celebrated its 10th anniversary by launching a new logo. On March 22, 2010, corresponding with the summer season, newly upgraded graphics have been shown with a summer aspect to it. This was also the day when Pia Archangel, Connie Sison, Luane Dy and Monica Verallo were formally announced on-air that they are officially part of the UH Barkada. A new OBB was also launched again corresponding with the summer season. On June 7, 2011, the new opening billboard is launched corresponding with the school opening. On January 3, 2011, the show was renamed or had an added tagline "Bagong Dekada" in the show's name.

On February 21, 2011, along with 24 Oras, Saksi and GMA Flash Report, the program introduced a new studio set, new graphics, new theme, and new OBB. On April 11, 2011, UH original host Edu Manzano returned to the show. A day later, Lhar Santiago accidentally broke his right arm and his injured right eyebrow during the show's game called "Tumbang Preso". He was later sent to the hospital. On October 19, 2012, Susan Enriquez left the show to anchor and host the newest morning newscast-commentary program Kape at Balita aired on GMA News TV beginning October 22, however, due to the cancellation of the show in 2013 later, Enriquez later returned the show. On October 22, 2012, the show updated its graphics and GMA reporter Jun Veneracion join the show as a replacement for Clavio less than a month when he comes back to the show on November 12, 2012.

On March 3, 2014, Unang Hirit re-introduced a new studio set in powerhouse-style, a newer & better graphics, & launched new segments suchs as: "UH Online Tambayan" (a segment where Suzi Entrata reads the comments of the users upon there opinion of today's top stories), "IM Ready: GMA Roadwatch" (with the part of GMA's newly launched website IM Ready Public Service Portal & Wazer), & Unang Selfie (a contest where the viewers then & now selfies will give away free grocery-packages). Since its news segment, Unang Balita, used foreign production music, a newly composed soundtrack created by GMA Music Publishing of Unang Balita was doned & for the first time, the newscast has a OBB which changed four times. Pia Arcangel was dropped out from the newscast, Ivan Mayrina & Susan Enriquez joined Clavio, Santos, & Sison. The show's jingle was corresponding with the summer season, in which, this time the jingle was performed by the UH Barkada in fiesta version, naming it self "Pambansang Morning Show" celebrating its 15th anniversary on the air. This is, for the first time, the only GMA News program that reformatted a new look, unlike other newscast such as 24 Oras & Saksi, and also, some GMA News TV newscast.
