Korina Sanchez Mag Re-resign sa ABS-CBN TV Patrol

MANILA --- Korina Sanchez has not been appearing as anchor of ABS-CBN’s "TV Patrol" since early this week. Ces Drilon has been pinch-hitting for her.

Could it be true that Korina has tendered her resignation to ABS-CBN in the wake of a top-to-bottom revamp of the ABS-CBN’s primetime news program? The reformatting, according to sources, was called for after the ratings of the show dipped to an all-time low since September. "TV Patrol" used to be the "unbeatable" show of ABS-CBN even after GMA has waged a war on the ratings game against them. But as it is, GMA is now the country’s No. 1 network and "TV Patrol" has lagged far behind the figures set by "24 Oras" anchored by Mike Enriquez and Mel Tiangco.

We couldn’t ascertain the other details of the "TV Patrol" reformat except for the fact that it will take effect on Nov. 15, as calls made to ABS to confirm this bit of news was not immediately returned. However, we heard from the grapevine that Ted Failon will take the place of Erwin Tulfo. The same source said Ted might be joined by another lady anchor, most possibly Karen Davila.

I guess, we’ll know all of the details on Nov. 15, when the new "TV Patrol" starts airing.

We tried to confirm from Karen’s camp this part of the story but we were told that Karen has not received any calls whatsoever offering her the post.

As to the news that Korina has already been talking to executives of GMA-7, we were also told that Korina had informed a GMA executive that she has already called a colleague in the newspaper denying that there ever was any negotiation.

GMA feels it is not right to comment on the issue anymore as Korina herself has already denied any negotiations for her alleged transfer.

As most soap operas’ tagline say, "abangan ang susunod na kabanata." (MB)
