Award-winning journalist Korina Sanchez-Roxas is back as a Kapamilya as
she inks a co-production deal with ABS-CBN for the news magazine and
lifestyle show “Rated Korina” this Wednesday (July 5).
“I always knew na I was going to be back. I was never not a Kapamilya
anyway. You can take the girl away from the birthplace, but you can’t
take the birthplace away from the girl. In this case, you can’t take
away the ABS-CBN in Korina because this is where I grew,” she said
during the contract signing.
Korina also shared the reason why her show “Rated Korina” stood the
test of time.
“The thing about Rated Korina, its longevity, is based on the fact
that hindi kailanman tayo’y mawawalan ng kwentong totoo mula sa mga
tunay na tao and I’ve always maintained, which was my very first
campaign promoting the show in ABS-CBN, that these are the big stories
and small lives,” she explained.
Present at the contract signing to welcome Korina were ABS-CBN chairman
Mark L. Lopez, ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo L. Katigbak, COO of
broadcast Cory V. Vidanes, OIC of finance group Vincent Paul O. Piedad,
and Global Resource Creative Exchange president and talent manager
Korina served as Chief Correspondent for the Integrated News and Current
Affairs Division of ABS-CBN for over two decades. She has been the face
of some Kapamilya programs such as “Hoy Gising,” “Bandila,”
“Balitang K,” “Rated K,” and “TV Patrol.”
As a news magazine and lifestyle show, “Rated Korina” features
inspiring stories of Filipinos from all walks of life. It airs every
Saturday at 6:15 pm on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and
A2Z, while it airs at 9:45 pm on TV5. The show is also available for
streaming on iWantTFC and TFC.
