TV PATROL ANCHORS: A LOOK BACK
TV Patrol aired a retrospective video last night looking back at its former anchors which included 24 Oras anchor Mel Tiangco.
The ABS-CBN newscast was conceived to be a broadcast version of a tabloid newspaper said anchor Noli de Castro.
“Ang format namin noon tabloid on television. Inisip ko lang, tatanggapin kaya ang mukha ko?”
TV Patrol was also a brainchild of former ABS-CBN President Freddie Garcia.
“It was a huge success from the very start because we gave them what they wanted,” said Garcia.
Among the more interesting bits of the piece are those showing a young Mel Tiangco teaming up with Kabayan and the late Frankie Evangelista, the three-anchor team format of Karen Davila, Julius Babao and Ted Failon among others, see video below:
