‘TV Patrol’ Premieres Powerhouse Team of Ted Failon, Korina Sanchez and Noli de Castro

Filipinos worldwide stay tuned to witness a historic milestone in Philippine broadcasting, with three of the nation’s most admired news icons---returning news anchors Korina Sanchez and Noli “Kabayan” De Castro and Ted Failon, joining forces for ABS-CBN’s flagship newscast “TV Patrol.”

Starting last Monday (Nov 8), Failon, Sanchez and De Castro did what they do best, and that is to deliver news and information that matter to every Filipino.

Failon, regarded as the “Sandigan ng Bayan” for his relentless coverage of every issue until its resolution, said he is honored to be part of what is said to be the most experienced and tested news team ever assembled in Philippine history.

“Ito na ho ngayon ang team ng ABS-CBN News na magbibigay inspirasyon sa bawat isa para gampanan ang aming tungkulin,” Failon said.

Sanchez, the “Kakampi ng Bayan,” who is known for her brave reports and insightful features, meanwhile, said she feels very good having returned to the ABS-CBN newsroom, which she first joined in 1986.

In a surprise welcome ceremony organized for her and De Castro by their peers before Monday’s airing, Korina tearfully said, “Hindi namin inasahan na ganito pa rin kainit ang pagtanggap ninyo sa amin. Maraming salamat.”

“TV Patrol’s” original anchor De Castro, more popularly known as “Kabayan,” is also back as the reliable “Boses ng Masa.” With his well-known modulated voice, Kabayan also made viewers wax nostalgic when he uttered his trademark line “Magandang gabi, bayan.”

“Umaasa ako na muli kaming magiging instrumento ng bansa sa pag-unlad,” said De Castro, a former Vice President and arguably the country’s most popular broadcaster. He and Sanchez anchored “TV Patrol” separately before Failon stepped in with Karen Davila and Julius Babao.

From the get-go, it was business as usual for the three anchors, who flawlessly presented comprehensive reports on a wide variety of news, from the volcano activity in Sorsogon, the gas leak in Makati City, the newest witness in the Maguindanao Massacre, the condition of flood victims in Cagayan and Isabela, to light human interest stories on former starlet Janice Jurado’s new source of livelihood and showbiz fare like a glimpse at international singing sensation Charice’s song in the upcoming NBC Christmas special. The anchors also fielded in questions to reporters that added context and depth to reports.

ABS-CBN Head for News and Current Affairs Ging Reyes said it wasn’t hard to convince De Castro and Sanchez to come back to “TV Patrol.”

“They are just returning to their first love. This is their true calling,” said Reyes, who is also a true-blue Kapamilya as she began her career in ABS-CBN as a production assistant in 1986. Reyes rose from the ranks to work as a reporter, a news producer, and eventually the chief of ABS-CBN North America Bureau for eight years.

Reyes added their comeback will further strengthen “TV Patrol,” which continues to be the most watched newscast and the number one program in its timeslot nationwide. In the nationwide TV ratings data from Kantar Media for Monday (Nov 8), “TV Patrol” got a rating of 28 percent compared to 19.5 of “24 Oras”, while “Willing-Willie” registered only 14.5%. “TV Patrol” also lorded over the TV5 show in Mega Manila that day with a rating of 20.9% versus 19.4% of “Willing-Willie,” and in Metro Manila, where it got 22.2% compared to 19.3% of the game show.

ABS-CBN also turned out as the most credible news source according to a study by Pulse Asia. 72% of the Filipinos believe ABS-CBN gave the most credible TV news coverage of the May 2010 elections, higher than GMA, which had only 63% believing in its credibility, and TV 5’s 32%.

For news that matter to Filipinos, watch Ted Failon, Korina Sanchez, and Noli “Kabayan” De Castro on TV, cable, radio, and online. Catch “TV Patrol” from Monday to Friday, after “Kokey @ Ako” on ABS-CBN, with simulcast on DZMM Radyo Patrol 630 and DZMM TeleRadyo Skycable ch. 26, and live streaming at http://tvpatrol.abs-cbnnews.com.

  1. cge gawin nyo lahat makakaya nyo abs mabeat nyo lng ang willing willie mga loser na kau talaga

  2. dapat naman talaga binalik sila kasi ka-level nila si Willie Revillame.

    ayan tuloy naiwan sa taas ang 24-Oras…

  3. @17 john, you are definitely correct. in fairness naman kina korina, ted, at kabayan, they are great in their respective fields of delivering the news. but there is really something different between mel and mike…they are the rare ones who has great integrity in delivering credible and fair news…which shows why through the years, they were successful tandem on the evening news…ratings aside

  4. I agree boring ang tv patrol ngayn, mas lalong nakilala ung tandem ni mel at mike sa 24 oras dahil mas lalong tumaas ang ratings nila, wala kc panama ang tv patrol pag sinabi na nilang walang kinikilingan, walang pinuprotektahan, walang kasinungalingan at WALANG BAHID NG PULITIKA… n all pilipino knows about it. We want karen n julius back.. mas dadausdos pababa ang ratings ng tv patrol pag nireformat ng 24 oras ang show nila ngayn nagmamatyag plang sila pero wala na yatang baguhin o idagdag sa programs nila.. Madaming magagandang newsanchors sa GMA nandyan si rhea santos, connie sison pati si ivan mayrina pag sa lalaki pero angat kc tlaga ang credibility ni mel n mike d secret kung bkit till now sila prin ang mas pinagkakatiwalaan ng bayan.. lets just accept the truth!

  5. dont judge be proud // November 11, 2010 at 3:21 pm //

    @5 napaka sosyal mo naman… Twenty mo pang slang, tweny… in laymans term its twainty pa din… Lam mo nman laymans term ang pag deliver nila ng news… Para sa masa un… Eh kamusta naman si mike enriquez? Ipit na nga boses… Twinti pa?

  6. da best parin ang 24oras. walang bahid politika

  7. ang galing ng TV patrol.. hehehehe mga legend na yan sa News.. grabe galing ganda

  8. utang ni karen na kay korina kng bakit xa nasa TVP since xa pumalit kay korina at professionally in.accept ni korina un at ganun din c noli kay julius so in return, dapat mag pay respect cla sa seniors nla by giving back to them the things they have now… Napatunayan na ni karen at julius na magaling cla dahil ilang awards na ang nakuha nla… so its ted, korina and noli’s time…

  9. sana binalik na lang si karen at julius madami na galit sa inyo abs at isa nako ngayon dati di kayo muna nagisip mahal ng mga pilipino si karen davila at julius babao sana ted-sanches and julius -karen apat na lang sana sila para mas matindi lalo…. si kabayan dapat po sa MGB na lang at un ang show binigay nyo sa kanya di yang TVpatrol…. people’s disspointing on this decision buong mundo pinaguusapan shock sa inyo GING REYES…. napaka unfair mo

  10. IBALIK SI KAREN // November 10, 2010 at 5:41 pm //

    Sana ibalik na po si ms.karen davila, hamak na mas magaling naman sya. Nakakaumay po ang Tvpatrol ngayon dahil kay kabayan. Parang makakatulog ako pag nagsasalita sya.

    Sana, di na lang ginalaw ang ted-julius-karen at dinagdag na lang si ms.korina kasi though i dont like korina magaling naman po sya eh. at para dominante ang walang bahid politics ang name. 3:1.

    Buhay na buhay ang pagbabalita pag si karen na nagsalita. Ang galing nia nong last day nia sa tvp, ginalingan nia talaga para ipakita sa abs cbn na deserving sya magstay. though everyday, binibigay naman nia best nia pero di talaga maiwasang magkamali. at kung magkamali sya, di halata. very profesional.

    we want karen back.

    sana marealize ng abs cbn na napamahal na sa tao si karen davila

  11. for me their tandem were good,,, perfect group of brave, intelligent personality… bravo!!!!!!!

  12. no 5… tama ka…. i love watching tvpatrol kasi un na bahagi na siya ng buhay ko but then they changed the anchors kakaantok na….. my suggestions sana binigyan na lang sariling show si kabayan ng magandang gabi bayan kasi bagay doon boses nya…. nasanay na kasi mga pilipino kila julius and karen…. and korina magaling naman talaga pero siyempre may connection na sila sa politics and evry time that they delivered the news di na siya ganun katindi ang dating….. kay karen parin ako at kay julius sana dinagdagan na lang nila di na ginalaw….. managements of abs-cbn madami na disappoint sa inyo sana para mas maganda dinagdag nyo na lang si korina at si noli sa MGB!

  13. I love all the newscaster of ABS CBN, khit sinong ilagay sa TV Patrol okey lang they’re all credible in disseminating information. God bless!

  14. asteeg sila. 🙂

  15. ONLY THE BEST NEWSCAST EVER…
    NAMAN…

    Im a kapamilya and bahagi na ng buhay ko ang tv patrol pero ito lang masasabi ko, Lame ang bagong tv patrol ngayon. Very lousy magdeliver ng line si kabayan. Nakakaantok. At mali mali magpronounce. ang twenty nia pronounced as “TWAIN-ty” (twain as in Shania Twain” at ang Ten ay “Tane”. Di ako kagalingan sa english pero alam ko naman pano yon ipronounce ng tama. Newscaster kasi sya dapat lang na tama magbigkas.

    Gusto ko magdeliver si korina gaya din ni karen very smart at active ang dating pag nagrereport. yon nga lang may bahid politika ang pangalan.

    Still love Julius-Karen-Ted Tandem. Nakakaantok ang bagong Tv patrol ngayon.

    Wrong move abs-cbn.

  17. ABS-CBN you’re always be the number 1! with the new team, Noli, Korina and Ted, the Filipino people will always be led to a more powerful and credible source of information.

    Ratings war

    MANY people stayed glued to their television sets Monday night for the showdown between ABS-CBN’s flagship news program and TV5’s gambit of putting the “Willing Willie” game show on primetime.

    Well, the results of that evening’s ratings war have been tallied. It showed that “TV Patrol”—revitalized with the return of former Vice President Noli de Castro and Korina Sanchez—kept its position at the top of the primetime heap with 28 percent of viewers nationally, followed by GMA 7’s “24 Oras” at 19.5 percent and “Willing Willie” at 14.5 percent, according to our sources.

    That was hardly surprising since ABS-CBN still has the biggest network nationally.

    The race in Metro Manila was tighter, though. On Monday night, “TV Patrol” led with a viewership of 22.2 percent, while “24 Oras” came in at 20.5 percent.

    Despite the lackluster performance of President Aquino’s former girlfriend, Shalani Soledad, as Willie Revillame’s co-host (a gambit with the imprimatur of TV5 head honcho MVP), the game show registered a respectable viewership level of 19.3 percent.

    Metro Manila and its environs, of course, are where 70 percent of the country’s spending power is concentrated. Daxim L. Lucas
