TV Patrol Chavacano is the local news program of ABS-CBN Regional Network Group in Zamboanga Peninsula aired on ABS-CBN TV-3 Zamboanga with simulcast on TV-10 Jolo. TV Patrol Chavacano delivers news from Zamboanga City and the Zamboanga Peninsula region (including Zamboanga Sibugay) along with the former Western Mindanao provinces of Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi. Jewel Reyes is the main anchor of this newscast since 2017 after she became a reporter (even Noning Antonio is her relief anchor).

While other TV Patrol versions in Mindanao aired either in Cebuano (the native tongue spoken mostly in Mindanao, as in the cases of TV Patrol North Mindanao and TV Patrol Southern Mindanao) or in Filipino (as in the case of TV Patrol South Central Mindanao), TV Patrol Chavacano is TV Patrol's only edition in Mindanao that uses different language in Chavacano, Zamboanga's native and official language based from Spanish.

It is aired live daily from the ABS-CBN Zamboanga Newscenter at 5:00 PM, Monday to Friday. It is simulcast on radio via MOR 98.7 For Life! Zamboanga and also shown abroad through The Filipino Channel.


When the newscast was launched on January 16, 1995 on DXLL-TV, it was first known as "TV Patrol Zamboanga". First anchored by Irene Covarrubias and Roland Ramos, the studios of TV Patrol has lack of broadcast equipments since the network was newly transferred to the old PBS studios. From that date up to 2004, the news was ended with Chavacano quotes or sayings (translated to English) called El Refran del Dia.

Hoy Gising! segment was aired on this newscast in 2006. Other news portions were Chavacano Starnews and Editorial by Reynerio Candido, who was later the main anchor. The same year, broadcast facilities for TV Patrol Chavacano were upgraded. Thus it was seen live.

When Ramos left the newscast in 1997, he was replaced by Butch Bustamante, who joined Irene Cobarrubias until her departure in 1999. Jennifer Villanueva joined the newscast in 2000 along with Bustamante and Candido.

Butch Bustamante left the newscast in 2001 to run for a seat in the Zamboanga City council, as well as Reynerio Candido three years later. Candido also ran successfully for a seat in the Zamboanga City council in 2004. TV Patrol Zamboanga was renamed into "TV Patrol Chavacano" in 2005. Villanueva left the newscast in 2006 as she was replaced by Jewel Reyes.

In January 2014, Reyes is joined by Darla Laude, but left a month later.

On January 12, 2015, the program celebrated its 20th anniversary and inserted a "20" to its title card.

In 2016, Reyes is joined by her co-anchor Noning Antonio. TV Patrol Chavacano updated their logo, graphics (with the font of the lower thirds and ticker now with Gotham) and video packages, now matching the national TV Patrol. In September, this is the fourth regional newscast to update its graphics and exactly match the new graphics to the national newscast after TV Patrol Socsksargen (now merged with Central Mindanao into TV Patrol South Central Mindanao), TV Patrol Central Visayas, TV Patrol Ilocos (now TV Patrol North Luzon) and TV Patrol Negros while retaining its 2013 logo on the opening billboard.

Finally in 2017, Reyes is once again the main anchor of the newscast while Antonio is her relief anchor.
