TV Patrol Tacloban is the local news program of the ABS-CBN Regional Network Group in Tacloban City and in Eastern Visayas.

It is aired live daily from the ABS-CBN Broadcasting Center in Avenida Veteranos, Tacloban City at 5:15 PM, from Monday to Friday. It is simulcast on radio via MOR 94.3 Tacloban For Life!

TV Patrol Tacloban has been covering the latest in-depth news from all over Eastern Visayas in Waray-Waray, the major language of the Region. Its area of coverage goes as far as Samar, Leyte's neighbouring islands.


TV Patrol Tacloban has been running for more than 15 years, with its original anchor Clifford Nolido, who since transferred to the ABS-CBN Regional Network Group in Iloilo as its Station Manager. He has been replaced by his former sit-in anchor Ranulfo Docdocan.

The program ceased broadcasting for 6 weeks after Tacloban City was hit by Typhoon Yolanda on November 8, 2013, which damaged the broadcast equipment of ABS-CBN Tacloban.[1][2] The program returned to broadcast on December 23, 2013 after power was restored in the city, repairs were completed in the station, and main anchor Docdocan recovered from injuries covering the typhoon in Guiuan, Eastern Samar.[3]

Areas Of Coverage[edit]

Viewers of the province of Dinagat Islands in Mindanao can also watch TV Patrol Tacloban as the signal of ABS-CBN Tacloban reaches the islands.
