Mornings@ANC is a 2-hour morning news and talk program of ABS-CBN News Channel in the Philippines. The show replaced the network's previous morning show Breakfast. It features all the information needed, ranging from news, both local and around the world, reports and analysis from the floor of the Philippine Stock Exchange, technology, sports, health, environment and entertainment news, along with the latest trends affecting Filipinos here and abroad. It airs from 9am to 11am weekdays.

Airing history[edit]

The program was first aired in 2006 as part of the rebranding of ANC, originally anchored by Ricky Carandang, Marieton Pacheco, TJ Manotoc and Niña Corpuz. It was started as a 2 1/2 hour program aired right after Magandang Umaga Pilipinas (then replaced by Umagang Kay Ganda). After Corpuz left then, she was replaced by Gretchen Fullido thereafter.

In 2008, the original 2 1/2 hour runtime of the show was reduced to 2 hours. Ron Cruz joined the show replacing Carandang, when the latter was moved to anchor News at 8. Meanwhile, Fullido was replaced by beauty queen turned entertainment reporter Ginger Conejero.

Former ABS-CBN Australia Bureau chief Gigi Grande joined the group and replaced Pacheco who marks her last day with the show on July 17, 2009 to embark a new life with her family in Canada and was assigned to be ABS-CBN North America Bureau correspondent.[1]

In August 2, 2010, TJ Manotoc left the show to join Ces Oreña-Drilon for ABS-CBN News Channel's primetime newscast The Rundown, he was replaced by equally sports enthusiast and broadcaster Paolo Abrera who joins Ginger Conejero, Ron Cruz, and Gigi Grande in the show, to take over the sports and technology beats and get to push his advocacy for nature in the all-new "Going Green" segment.[2]

Broadcast journalist Pinky Webb, who used to anchor Dateline Philippines officially joined "Mornings@ANC" on October 10, 2011 as she switched places with veteran broadcast journalist Gigi Grande. Grande joined TJ Manotoc on Dateline Philippines, the ANC's longest running newscast.[3]

On August 4, 2014, TJ Manotoc made his comeback to Mornings@ANC, and replaced longtime anchor Ron Cruz, who will be taking over the anchor chair of the noontime newscast Dateline Philippines opposite Karmina Constantino.[4]
