Jove Francisco moves from TV5 to ABS-CBN News Channel

By | Saturday, October 10, 2015

First on MNP: Jove Francisco has officially left TV5, Media Newser Philippines has learned.

The veteran journalist, who is known for his incisive political reporting, is switching networks, joining ABS-CBN News Channel beginning this month.

Francisco will soon be reuniting with his former ABC-5 boss, Tina Monzon-Palma, as he takes the helm as executive producer of the long-running evening newscast The World Tonight.

Although no timetable has been set yet, Francisco will also contribute across ANC's broadcasts, our source said.

Francisco has been a key member of the Kapatid news team since 1996, back when the network was still known as ABC-5. He has covered every presidential election cycle since then, and has interviewed every sitting president — from President Fidel Ramos to President Noynoy Aquino.

He has also served as anchor to some of TV5's newscasts, including TEN: The Evening News, Aksyon JournalisMo, Pilipinas News, and Balitang 60; and correspondent to public affairs programs such as Dokumentado, Anggulo and Balwarte.
