'Unang Hirit' host Monica Verallo jumps to UNTV

By Media Newser Philippines | Friday, June 13, 2014

You'd be forgiven for not knowing a little shakeup that happened in the morning television scene this week.

Monica Verallo, one of the many hosts of GMA-7's Unang Hirit, has decided to switch networks, joining the public service channel UNTV to be part of the panel of Good Morning Kuya.

A network insider notes that Verallo's first week has been positively received by CEO Daniel Razon and her GMK co-hosts, adding that her years of experience with UH will surely help the show attract non-UNTV viewers in the long run.

It's interesting to note that Verallo is now in the company of two of UH's most beloved hosts ever — Daniel Razon and Eagles Riggs. You may remember that Razon used to co-anchor the Kapuso morning show from 2002–2005, while Riggs, now host of Easy Lang Yan, co-hosted the show from 1999–2010.
