TV Patrol is a Philippine television news broadcasting show originally broadcast by ABS-CBN (until May 5, 2020) and currently broadcasting on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, ABS-CBN News Channel, TeleRadyo Serbisyo and ALLTV. Originally anchored by Noli de Castro, Mel Tiangco, Robert Arevalo and Frankie Evangelista (who replaced Arevalo), it premiered on March 2, 1987 on the network's primetime slot replacing Balita Ngayon. De Castro, Karen Davila, Bernadette Sembrano, and Henry Omaga-Diaz currently serve as the anchors. It is the longest-running Filipino-language news program.

History[edit]

Pre-launch[edit]

Following the People Power Revolution in February 1986 and the resumption of operations months later, ABS-CBN News executives, among them then-News Manager Angelo Castro Jr.,[1][2][3][4] began holding meetings with higher-ups on plans to launch an all-new news program that will serve as a replacement to Balita Ngayon. On March 1, 1987, ABS-CBN announced the launch of TV Patrol during the public variety extravaganza "Ang Pagbabalik ng Bituin" (lit. transl. The Return of the Star) at Luneta Park, Manila.[5]

1987–2001: Noli de Castro era[edit]

TV Patrol premiered on March 2, 1987, at 6:00 p.m. PHT, replacing Balita Ngayon, with Noli de Castro, Mel Tiangco, and Robert Arevalo as the original anchors.[6] Segment anchors included Ernie Baron, who served as the newscast's chief meteorologist and provided viewers trivia pertaining to science and history, and actress-personality Angelique Lazo who first hosted Star News, an entertainment news segment.[7][8] However, on June 1, 1987, Arevalo left the newscast and was replaced by Frankie Evangelista, who served as a segment host for "PULSO: Pangkalahatang Ugnayan Laan sa Opinyon" (lit. transl. PULSE: Overall Correlation Reserved for Opinions).

With the introduction of international broadcasts in 1989 to the Pacific islands of Guam and Saipan, and later with the birth of The Filipino Channel in 1994, TV Patrol became the first Philippine newscast and program to be broadcast overseas.

In 1993, Christine Bersola-Babao joined the newscast to host the Star News segment, replacing Lazo, until 1996. In 1995, Korina Sánchez joined the newscast, replacing Tiangco who left ABS-CBN for GMA Network. De Castro would eventually become the sole anchor of the newscast in 1996, reducing its airtime to 30 minutes.

On January 4, 1999, the newscast returned its airtime to 1 hour. On February 14, 2000, TV Patrol started its simulcast over AM radio stations DZMM (Metro Manila), DYAB (Cebu), and DXAB (Davao) and began its online presence through the ABS-CBN News website. On February 5, 2001, de Castro left the newscast to run for Senator.

2001–2004: Korina Sanchez era[edit]

On March 5, 2001, Korina Sanchez, Henry Omaga-Diaz, and Aljo Bendijo took over as the new anchors.[9] On April 21, 2003, Julius Babao replaced Omaga-Diaz and Bendijo.[10] In the same year, TV Patrol became simulcast on ABS-CBN's UHF station Studio 23 for several months. The program also adopted the ABS-CBN News slogan "Subok na Maaasahan" (lit. transl. Proven to be Reliable) in 2004.

2004–2010: TV Patrol World/Ted Failon era[edit]

On November 22, 2004, the program was relaunched as TV Patrol World with Ted Failon and Karen Davila joining the program as its main anchors, replacing Korina Sanchez; they joined Julius Babao in the program, while special segments are anchored by Bernadette Sembrano, Ernie Baron and Phoemela Baranda, respectively. Baron died of a heart attack on January 23, 2006, and months later, he was replaced by Kim Atienza as the newscast's resident weatherman.

On April 12, 2007, TV Patrol World began its simulcast on TeleRadyo, the newly-launched cable television channel of DZMM. On November 25 of the same year, ABS-CBN aired a documentary special for TV Patrol's 20th anniversary entitled TV Patrol: 20 Taon ng Pagpapatrol (lit. transl. TV Patrol: 20 Years of Patrolling). It was produced by ABS-CBN and Jesuit Communications.

2010–2015: Relaunch, return of former anchors and 25th anniversary[edit]

A Balitandaan marker at Cagsawa, Albay. A portmanteau of balita (news) and tandaan (marker), Balitandaan markers were unveiled to commemorate TV Patrol's 25th anniversary.

On June 30, 2010, TV Patrol World was reverted to its original title TV Patrol and introduced its first website, Facebook and Twitter pages. On October 4, 2010, a new program segment, "Winner sa Life!" (lit. transl. Winner in Life!) with Winnie Cordero was launched with reports on lifestyle and tips on proper living.

On November 3, 2010, ABS-CBN announced the return of former anchors Noli de Castro and Korina Sanchez as weeknight anchors of TV Patrol. They replaced Babao and Davila, both transferring to Bandila, and thus joined Failon on November 8, 2010.[11] On the same day, Gretchen Fullido replaced Phoemela Baranda as a Star Patrol segment anchor.

On July 29, 2012, a documentary special entitled Mga Nagbabagang Balita: 25 Taon ng TV Patrol (transl. The Breaking News: 25 Years of TV Patrol) was aired in celebration of its 25th anniversary. It was re-aired on August 12.[12]

2015–2020: Noli de Castro, Bernadette Sembrano, and Ted Failon[edit]

On August 3, 2015, former TV Patrol Weekend anchor Bernadette Sembrano named as the permanent replacement to Sanchez, who left the newscast to pursue her masteral degree at Ateneo de Manila University and London School of Economics.[13]

On March 2, 2017, TV Patrol celebrated its 30th anniversary through a live newscast in its studio in Quezon City and its sister stations in Tacloban and Zamboanga City. Sembrano was situated at the ABS-CBN studio in Quezon City, while Failon was in Tacloban and de Castro in Zamboanga.

On August 24, 2017, the show featured celebrities as "Star Patrol" guest anchors, a segment that has been returned after quite some time. Yassi Pressman, Toni Gonzaga, Bela Padilla, Kim Chiu, Bianca Gonzales, Erich Gonzales, Kylie Verzosa, Mariel de León, Janella Salvador, Aiko Melendez, Karylle, Karla Estrada, Anne Curtis, and Angel Locsin filled in the slot of Fullido occasionally. Earlier in 2015, actresses Yam Concepcion and Loren Burgos, and athlete Gretchen Ho took the helm as pinch-hitters for the segment.[14][15][16]

On April 2, 2018, TV Patrol began broadcasting in high definition.

COVID-19 pandemic[edit]

On March 17, 2020, TV Patrol began to air on a late night timeslot (as a replay), temporarily replacing the timeslot of late-night newscast Bandila due to the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the Philippines, until it was replaced by The World Tonight on July 27, 2020 on Kapamilya Channel due to the ABS-CBN Shutdown and the new franchise denied by 70 congressmen. On the same day, it began to simulcast on the network's 24-hour news channel, ANC, the first ever simulcast since the cable channel's 1996 launch. The decision to adopt late night replays led to yet another adjustment, with the telecast frequently extending their airtime to at least two hours. This led to a shift in Primetime Bida's schedule during the enhanced community quarantine.

In April, sign language interpreters were added to the broadcast.

ABS-CBN shutdown[edit]

On May 5, 2020, TV Patrol was the last program to be aired on ABS-CBN, MOR, and S+A before they signed-off indefinitely that night (DZMM and its television counterpart, TeleRadyo, also aired this edition of the newscast but signed off together at 8:20 p.m. PHT following S.R.O.: Suhestyon, Reaksyon at Opinyon), following the cease-and-desist order of the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to close the free TV and radio broadcasting operations of ABS-CBN as the network's broadcasting franchise expired the day before.

The special edition focused on the cease-and-desist order of the NTC closing the network's free TV and radio broadcasting operations and featured statements by ABS-CBN president and chief executive officer Carlo Katigbak and chairman Mark Lopez, appealing the cease and desist order. The program also aired without commercial breaks.[17]

As a result, on May 7, 2020, the newscast temporarily migrated to ANC, The Filipino Channel, Cine Mo! (until July 24, 2020), and on digital platforms with ANC assuming the program's production.[18][19] TeleRadyo would return simulcasting the newscast on May 8, 2020.

On June 30, 2020, the newscast ended on free-to-air television due to the cease-and-desist order on ABS-CBN TV Plus.

TV Patrol was supposed to simulcast on Kapamilya Channel, the network's ad interim replacement to ABS-CBN for cable and satellite providers beginning June 15, 2020,[20] but the newscast was instead excluded from its programming schedule until July 27.[21][22] According to Atienza and Fullido, this was because the newscast was already broadcasting on ANC, other digital channels, and social media platforms. TV Patrol airtime was shortened from 110 minutes to 90 minutes during this period. Kapamilya Channel took over production of the newscasts from July 27 onwards.

Failon's departure[edit]

On August 31, 2020, Ted Failon made his final appearance on the newscast through Zoom as he left the network as part of its retrenchment program;[23][24] The departure of Failon also led the August 31 edition to end with the song "Tinig ng mga Nawalan" (English: Voice of the Lost), sung by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla in support for the retrenched employees. From September 7 to October 2, former weekday anchors Julius Babao, Karen Davila, Henry Omaga-Diaz, and current weekend anchor Alvin Elchico rotated as the third main anchor on the weeknight edition while Failon's replacement was yet to be determined.

2020–2021: Noli de Castro, Bernadette Sembrano, and Henry Omaga-Diaz[edit]

On September 30, 2020, Davila announced on her Instagram account that former anchor Henry Omaga-Diaz was named as the permanent replacement to Failon beginning on October 5; ABS-CBN confirmed the development on October 4.[25][26]

from April 21 to May 4, 2021, De Castro, Sembrano, and Omaga-Diaz were on self-quarantine, with Sembrano later testing positive for COVID-19.[27][28] Given this, Elchico, Hernandez, Davila, Babao, and Jorge Cariño rotated as the three temporary weeknight anchors. With this, Elchico and Babao (on April 27) were promoted as the lead anchors. The newscast temporarily aired live from an outdoor area within the ABS-CBN premises, while Fullido and Atienza were seen via Zoom, instead of the regular news studio. On May 5, coinciding with the first anniversary of the ABS-CBN shutdown, the news studio was used once again for broadcast, although de Castro, Atienza, and Fullido were the only anchors present, four days after Sembrano announced that she had recovered from the disease.[29]

Departure of Atienza and de Castro[edit]

On October 1, 2021, Kim Atienza made his final appearance on the newscast as the newscast's resident weather presenter as he transferred to GMA Network.[30][31]

Six days later on October 7, Noli de Castro left the newscast to run for senator once again;[32][33] however, he withdrew his candidacy, and as a result, he soon returned to ABS-CBN through TeleRadyo.[34]

2021–2023: Bernadette Sembrano, Henry Omaga-Diaz, and Karen Davila[edit]

On October 8, ABS-CBN News confirmed that former anchor Karen Davila was named as the replacement to de Castro; she joined Omaga-Diaz and Sembrano on October 11. With her arrival, Omaga-Diaz was promoted as the lead anchor.[35]

On October 25, TV Patrol launched three new segments: "Winning Moment" with Winnie Cordero, "Alam N'yo Ba?" (lit. transl. Did You Know?) with Boyet Sison, and the returning "Mga Kwento ni Marc Logan" (lit. transl. Stories of Marc Logan) with Marc Logan,[36][37] until Sison's death on April 16, 2022.[38] On December 13, former PAGASA weather specialist Ariel Rojas joined as the resident weather meteorologist and he was named as the permanent replacement to Atienza.[39]

On December 31, former anchor Julius Babao made his final appearance on the newscast as a relief anchor and announced that he would be leaving the network. Eventually, he moved to TV5, and then became the anchor for the competing newscast, Frontline Pilipinas.[40][41]

35th anniversary; return to free-to-air television[edit]

On January 1, 2022, TV Patrol officially began its simulcast on A2Z, marking its return to free-to-air television, almost two years since the newscast made its last broadcast on ABS-CBN and Cine Mo!.[42] With this historic return, it came with a brand new opening billboard, logo, and on-air graphics introduced on January 3. Another new segment in "Uso at Bago" (lit. transl. Trend and New) with Migs Bustos was launched.

From May 27 to November 1, 2022, the free-to-air broadcast on TeleRadyo resumed as a digital subchannel of A2Z.

On June 30, 2022, Migs Bustos was named as the replacement to Sison for the segment, "Alam N'yo Ba?".

2023–present: Noli de Castro, Karen Davila, Bernadette Sembrano, and Henry Omaga-Diaz[edit]

On January 9, 2023, Noli de Castro returned to the newscast for his third stint joining Davila, Sembrano, and Omaga-Diaz, regaining his role as lead anchor.[43][44]

Return to former frequencies and Logan's departure[edit]

On June 30, 2023, TV Patrol marked its return to AM radio when its simulcast on DWPM Radyo 630, ABS-CBN's new AM radio station under the joint venture with Prime Media Holdings that was softly launched earlier that day, began. It is also carried over to the station's television counterpart, TeleRadyo Serbisyo.[45]

On January 19, 2024, Marc Logan silently made his final appearance on the newscast as the newscast's segment anchor as he transferred to TV5 on March 8 and became the host of his new program Top 5 Mga Kwentong Marc Logan.[46]

On April 15, 2024, the newscast began its simulcast on ALLTV, marking its return to channels 2 and 16 in Mega Manila and regional channels previously held by ABS-CBN.[47]

On May 27, 2024, the free-to-air broadcast on TeleRadyo Serbisyo resumed via Prime TV.

Expansion to FM Radio[edit]

On May 6, 2024, the newscast started its simulcast on FM radio through FMR Radio Philippines stations outside Mega Manila making it the second time to simulcasted (previously it was simulcasted on selected MOR stations).[48]

At the beginning, both editions were complemented by The Weekend News as ABS-CBN's weekend newscasts, with TV Patrol Sabado and TV Patrol Linggo as early-evening newscast and The Weekend News as late-night newscast until it was cancelled more than a year later. During this period, the weekend editions used to occupy middle evening time slots between 8:00 and 10:00 p.m. PHT.

Beginning March 21, 2020, the program expanded to 45 minutes in weekends, and on March 28 began airing on both TeleRadyo and ABS-CBN News Channel for the first time in 16 years (Sundays only, with program beginning a Saturday broadcast on ANC beginning April 25 that same year).

Airing history[edit]

As an hourly news bulletin[edit]

News Patrol premiered in 2005 as a news bulletin of the morning show Magandang Umaga, Bayan. The news bulletin was reformatted into ABS-CBN's news bulletin, replacing ABS-CBN News Advisory on September 5, 2005.

In 2006, it became the first Philippine news program to broadcast the victory of the First Philippine Mount Everest Expedition.

On April 1, 2018, News Patrol switched to high definition format (alongside with other network's main channel news programs).

On April 9, 2020, News Patrol aired its special coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic during the Paschal Triduum of the Holy Week as an evening newscast.

On May 5, 2020, News Patrol aired its last bulletin on ABS-CBN after the network was forced to cease and desist its free TV broadcasting operations given by the order of the NTC due to the expiration of the network's legislative franchise to operate the day before.[52]

On May 8, 2020, the news bulletin migrated to TeleRadyo, The Filipino Channel, and social media platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, and iWantTFC. Some regional newscasts also began to air live on their respective Facebook pages the following day.

In October 2021, Pia Gutierrez left the Saturday News Patrol bulletins for The World Tonight. She was replaced by Willard Cheng in November 2021.

On June 20, 2022, News Patrol alternately aired on A2Z in lieu of the ZOE-produced Ulat A2Z, which is broadcast every weekday afternoon, marking its return to free-to-air television after two years.

As a primetime newscast[edit]

On June 15, 2020, News Patrol returned via Kapamilya Channel as a temporary 30-minute primetime newscast instead of airing the two-hour newscast TV Patrol which airs on ANC, TeleRadyo and Cine Mo!.[53] ANC and former S+A news presenter Denice Dinsay anchored the primetime newscast. However, the primetime newscast ended shortly on July 24 as TV Patrol began its broadcast on Kapamilya Channel on July 27.[54] News Patrol was then reverted to an hourly news bulletin of the said channel on the same day.

Former anchors[edit]

TV Patrol Express[edit]

TV Patrol Express is a digital-only spinoff of TV Patrol produced by ABS-CBN News, airing weekdays at 5:00 p.m. PHT on the network's YouTube and Facebook platforms. Anchored by Jeff Canoy and Denice Dinsay, the program offers a concise (ranging from 5 to 10 minutes) overview of significant national headlines, serving as a pre-show to the flagship TV Patrol newscast.

Theme music[edit]

TV Patrol originally used Vangelis' "Pulstar" as its very first theme music, from March 2, 1987 to November 4, 1994. This theme had also been used prior by Univision owned-and-operated station WLTV-TV.

On November 7, 1994, "Pulstar" was replaced by Ryan Cayabyab's "ABS-CBN News Theme," which served as the theme of TV Patrol and the ABS-CBN News and Public Affairs division until 1996. The theme was used as the theme music for The World Tonight which airs on the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) from 1999 up to 2018, with slight and more modern re-composition.

In 1996, when Noli de Castro became the sole anchor of the newscast, it adopted Gari Communications' "Allegro" from KPIX-TV, a CBS-owned TV station in San Francisco, California, although the news theme had also been used by KBAK-TV.

On March 5, 2001, when de Castro left the newscast for the Senate elections of that year, Korina Sanchez, Henry Omaga Diaz, and Aljo Bendijo replaced him as the new anchors, the Filipino composition of "Allegro" was done with elements from the orchestra version and combined the elements of the original 1996–2001 version, the 1994–96 ABS-CBN News Theme, and the ABS-CBN's jingle.

The theme underwent re-compositions in 2002 (which was also the 2004–2006 TV Patrol Sabado and TV Patrol Linggo theme), 2003, 2004, and 2006, which was rearranged and composed by Neocolours' Jimmy Antiporda.

The theme music in use since June 30, 2010, incorporates the elements of "Pulstar," TV Patrol's 2001 theme, and TV Patrol World's 2004 and 2006 theme music; and has been the newscast's longest-used theme music.

Regional editions[edit]

From 1988 to 2020, the regional editions of the newscast that are delivered in other Philippine languages, collectively credited as TV Patrol Regional, were broadcast on all ABS-CBN Regional stations nationwide, with simulcast on the network's four provincial Radyo Patrol AM Radio stations, DYAB TeleRadyo Cebu and selected MOR FM radio stations.

All regional editions aired in the late afternoon until ABS-CBN ceased free TV and radio operations on May 5, 2020, with selected editions simulcast over The Filipino Channel for overseas viewers. Several newscasts were also aired nationwide from August 2016 to January 2018 on the ABS-CBN Regional Channel via Sky Cable, Destiny Cable, and Sky Direct. The ABS-CBN Regional YouTube page also includes archived videos of past editions for those who have not watched the program as well as for overseas viewers.

On May 8, 2020, the regional editions resumed broadcasts through their respective Facebook pages and the ABS-CBN Regional YouTube channel. However, on July 15, 2020, ABS-CBN announced that the company would go into retrenchment on August 31 in light of the denial of its bid for a legislative franchise, laying-off much of its employees. It was further revealed on July 17, 2020, during an interview on Failon Ngayon sa TeleRadyo that the regional division of ABS-CBN News would fold after regular business hours on the said retrenchment date. Included in the shutdown is the halt of all its regional programs and their respective TV Patrol editions with their last broadcasts aired on August 28, 2020.[55]

Reception[edit]

In October 1988, early in the program's run, Meg Mendoza of the Manila Standard criticized the show's format, stating that "we still prefer [GMA Balita] since we can't stand the blood and gore being shown.... Sensationalism may be good for the ratings but there's no substitute to honest and intelligent reporting."[56]

In 1989, poet and literary critic Virgilio S. Almario was critical of TV Patrol's use of Filipino "siyokoy" words, loanwords from the Spanish or English language that are formed through a misunderstanding of Spanish grammar. As examples, Almario highlighted the use of the words "aspeto," "parliyamento," "pesante," and "konsernado," which he respectively corrected as "aspekto," "parlamento," "magsasaka," "paisano" or "magbubukid," and "konsernido." However, he still commends the program for "passionately" delivering news in the Filipino language.[57]
