Hoy Gising! (English: Hey! Wake Up!) was TV segment on ABS-CBN in the Philippines. Originally part of the flagship national network news broadcast TV Patrol, it became a long-running public service program. Three years later[year needed], Hoy Gising! revived the program again for Saturday afternoon airings as Hoy Gising! Kapamilya.

Origin and Style[edit]

Hoy Gising! was a public service program that began on TV Patrol as a segment handled by the late Frankie Evangelista. It then grew into a half-hour program (later extended to an hour) chiefly anchored by Kris Aquino, Ted Failon, and Korina Sanchez. The formula remained the same: tackling all sorts of problems associated with the government, as well as social issues. The difference between the show and others of its kind was its semi-humorous method of commenting on the issues and problems it featured, and urging those concerned to "wake up."

The show had a mambo-themed opening song performed by The Kumbancheros.
