TV Patrol Central Mindanao is the local news program of the ABS-CBN Regional Network Group in Cotabato City.

Anchored by veteran Cotabato City journalist Jasper Acosta, it is aired live daily from the ABS-CBN Newscenter Cotabato at 5:00 PM, from Monday to Friday. It is simulcast on MOR 95.1 Cotabato For Life! and also shown abroad through The Filipino Channel.

The program delivers headlines about the current events in Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur and North Cotabato using Filipino.


TV Patrol Central Mindanao (which was later retitled as "TV Patrol Cotabato") began on April 12, 1999 as the flagship regional newscast of ABS-CBN Cotabato and also a replacement of Davao City-produced TV Patrol Mindanao (now TV Patrol Southern Mindanao). Prior to the launch of the standalone newscast, the network aired regional news advisories since September 1998 from 10:00 AM, 12:00 NN and 3:00 PM[1] then in 2005, the newscast reverted to its original title.

In September 2016, TV Patrol Central Mindanao updated their logo, graphics (with the font of the lower thirds and ticker now with Arial Bold) and video packages, now matching the national TV Patrol. This is the third regional TV Patrol newscast to update its graphics and exactly match the new graphics to the national newscast after TV Patrol Socsksargen and TV Patrol Central Visayas.
