TV Patrol Tacloban has been covering the latest in-depth news from all over Eastern Visayas in Waray, the major language of the region. Its area of coverage goes as far as Biliran and Samar, Leyte's neighboring islands.
TV Patrol Tacloban has been running for more than 15 years, with its original anchor Clifford Nolido, who since transferred to ABS-CBN 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 He has been replaced by his former sit-in anchor Ranulfo Docdocan.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. 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.
