ABS-CBN chairman Mark L. Lopez, president and CEO Carlo L. Katigbak, COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes and finance group OIC Vincent Paul Piedad welcome Korina Sanchez-Roxas. Also in photo is Global Resource Creative Exchange president and talent manager Girlie RodisKorina Sanchez-Roxas is back as a Kapamilya after inking a coproduction deal with ABSCBN for the news magazine and lifestyle show “Rated Korina.”
“I always knew na I was going to be back. I was never not a Kapamilya, anyway. You can take the girl away from the birthplace, but you can’t take the birthplace away from the girl. In this case, you can’t take away the ABS-CBN in Korina because this is where I grew,” she said during the contract signing in early July.
Korina shared the reason her show “Rated Korina” stood the test of time.
“The thing about ‘Rated Korina,’ its longevity is based on the fact that hindi kailanman tayo’y mawawalan ng kwentong totoo mula sa mga tunay na tao and I’ve always maintained, which was my very first campaign promoting the show in ABS-CBN, that these are the big stories and small lives,” she explained.
Present at the contract signing to welcome Korina were ABS-CBN chairman Mark L. Lopez, ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo L. Katigbak, COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes, OIC of finance group Vincent Paul Piedad, and Global Resource Creative Exchange president and talent manager Girlie Rodis.
Korina served as chief correspondent for the integrated news and current affairs division of ABS-CBN for over two decades. She has been the face of Kapamilya programs such as “Hoy, Gising,” “Bandila,” “Balitang K,” “Rated K” and “TV Patrol.”
“Rated Korina” airs every Saturday at 6:15 p.m. on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live and A2Z, and at 9:45 p.m. on TV5. The show is also available for streaming on iWantTFC and TFC.
