Return to TV5
Ben's return to TV5, in its new incarnation, was surprising but not unexpected. He teams up with brothers Erwin and Tol' Raffy in T3: Kapatid Sagot Kita. He still leads BITAG, formerly in UNTV, and now shows in Radyo5 92.3 News FM and AksyonTV, after his contract expires in IBC-13 and decides not to renew.
