350: Picture: Pinky Webb and Edu Manzano at Go Gourmet Rustan's

Thank you Jessy! :)

349: Edu, Pinky back in each other's arms

Well, it must be love. And obviously, not just the ordinary kind, ang nararamdaman nina Edu Manzano at Pinky Webb.

Kung hindi ba naman, bakit madalas man silang ’di magkaunawaan at nauuwi sa hiwalayan, heto at magkakabalikan silang muli?

This is what happened na naman recently.

Yes, the two are back in each other’s arms... ayon sa balita.

They were seen together daw na nagbakasyong magkasama sa isang foreign na lugar, pero malapit lang sa Pilipinas.

Once more, sweet sila together as can be.

As for Pinky, siya at si Alvin Elchico na ang pumalit kina Alex Santos at Bernadette Sembrano bilang anchors ng TV Patrol Weekend sa ABS-CBN.

Nananatili pa rin si Pinky bilang isa sa news reporters ng XXX.


348: What’s keeping Edu and Pinky from tying the knot?

GUESS who are back in each other’s arms?

Edu Manzano and news anchor Pinky Webb.

This time, the couple’s friends are hoping that their decision to reconcile is for keeps.

Come to think of it, what’s keeping these two from getting married? Not only are they of age, but also, they are good for each other.

Both, likewise, are successful in their professions: Edu as a tv host and actor, and Pinky as one of ABS CBN’s most-sought after newscasters and reporters.

Pinky, together with Alvin Elchico, now handles the ABS CBN Public Affairs weekend’s "TV Patrol." The two replace Alex Santos and Bernadette Sembrano-Aguilado, who are now both assigned new public affairs shows.

Pinky remains one of the most able reporters of ABS-CBN’s "XXX."

Edu, who just signed a contract with TV5, will soon host his own program

347: Pinky Webb's First Day on TV Patrol Weekend

The new TV Patrol Weekend's first airing has just begun at exactly 5 PM. From the Newscenter of ABS-CBN Broadcast Center in Quezon City, Pinky Webb and Alvin Elchico opened the program with the same studio and they were just sitting down while reporting compare to the usual manner of news casting where TV Patrol Anchors were standing still in the entire show.

Pinky is wearing a pink blazer with a tube dress on it and has a pearl necklace on her neck. She is more beautiful than her past newscast in Umagang Kay Ganda, and getting sexier on her attire.

Ms. Webb has also a segment entitled "Kulang Sa Pansin" as she talks about the social problems in one family and the community. She really did a great job on her first report.

And they end up with a Christmas Special Report and Marc Logan's segment on Sen. Miriam Santiago's pick up lines. She just smiled on it. I know that her first tandem with Alvin Elchico will become effective since they were just worked in a radio program, Tambalang Failon at Webb, where Alvin replaced Ted Failon if he's on leave or absent.

Good job for her and I want to see her more during weekends. Stay tuned in TV Patrol Weekend on Saturdays, 5:00 PM, and Sundays, 6:00 PM.

Here's our screen pics during her first stint on TV Patrol Weekend:

At first I felt compelled to solve my kidnapping, to go after them. but it’s really very difficult, even the military can’t do it. I thought that I should not be the one to go after them. Perhaps I feel a compulsion to just meet with those who have had the same experience and to share notes but not really a sort of advocacy,” she shares.

342: Where is Pinky Webb

MANILA, Philippines - The country has been searching for Pinky Webb months after she left ABS-CBN morning show "Umagang Kay Ganda" (UKG) and dzMM program "Tambalang Failon at Webb."
Now, she is back to get her feet wet and her hands dirty.

"I'm going to be a field reporter. It's what I want to do...and what management wants me to do," Webb told

Webb will start her reporting job with ABS-CBN's flagship newscast, "TV Patrol," in a couple of weeks. She used to be a substitute news anchor for the said program.

But as early as today, she has been busy preparing for what lies ahead.

"Yeah, definitely I am [preparing for this]," she said.

Webb's stint as a reporter had been put on hold for at least four years due to her hosting projects in ABS-CBN Channel 2 and radio dzMM.

She said she enjoyed being part of "UKG" and "Tambalang Failon at Webb," but these took some time away from her reportorial projects.

"Feeling ko sobrang demanding...For example sa 'UKG' gising ka ng 3:30 a.m.," she explained.
"Sa ANC (ABS-CBN News Channel) I did it (field work) a number of times. Live kami noon, marami akong labas noon. Kaya lang, noong nag-mainstream Channel 2 ako, talagang naka-focus ako sa shows ko. Ang dami eh," she added.

The big switch

Webb may have left her early morning and radio programs, but she is still part of "XXX," an investigative news and crime show on ABS-CBN.

She will also be the new face of "Mornings@ANC," which is aired on the cable news channel at 9 a.m. on weekdays.

Webb, who used to anchor "Dateline Philippines," will swap places with veteran broadcast journalist Gigi Grande.

"ANC kasi is hard to let go. I started at broadcasting with ANC in 1997, and I never left ANC," she said when asked why she accepted the project.

"So masaya naman ako na we are able to (switch places). 'Dateline' ako dati tapos si Gigi naman nilagay nila doon."

Grande will be joining TJ Manotoc in "Dateline Philippines," which is ANC's longest running newscast.
Other new programs lined up for the cable news channel include Ces Drilon's revival of current affairs program "Pipol," "Primetime on ANC" with Tony Velasquez and Karmina Constantino, and "Teditorial," a two-minute commentary segment by Teodoro Locsin on select ANC news programs.

Meanwhile, Webb said she is looking forward to her new assignments. "Yes (it's going to be like this for the next few years). But let's take it a year at a time," she said

341: Pinky Webb, Ces Drilon get new shows on ANC


MANILA, Philippines – As part of ABS-CBN News Channel's 15th anniversary, the 24/7 news channel formally announced its new programs and segments.

ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs head and ANC director Ging Reyes welcomed the press and guests.

“This is part of our effort to continue to improve our content offerings on ANC. As you are probably aware by now, we are celebrating our 15th year,” said Reyes.
A new "Mornings @ ANC" will greet your day with the dynamic team of Ron Cruz, Ginger Conejero, Paolo Abrera and Pinky Webb hosting the show.

“I’ll be doing Mornings @ ANC, tapos I’m going to be a reporter for channel 2. Of course I’ll still be doing XXX and I think I’ll be doing another show,” said Webb.
With her busy schedule, Webb said she doesn’t have the time for her love life.
“Ngayon, wala,” she said.

If there's a saying that news never sleeps, there's no lunch break for news on “Dateline Philippines”, anchored by TJ Manotoc and former ABS-CBN Australia Bureau Chief Gigi Grande.

“I’m so excited. It is such a big score for me, I think. By the time we get to Dateline Philippines at 12 noon, everything will be put in context and it will be easier for us to tell the story of what’s going on,” said Grande.

In the evening time slot, "Primetime on ANC" will be anchored by Tony Velasquez and former North America correspondent Karmina Constantino.

“It’s good to be back. It’s nice to see all the familiar faces and all these talents na nag-progress and nag-improve,” said Constantino.

“The real test of a news channel is how much stamina and perseverance you put into following a story. We’ll never drop a story until we find out what the conclusion is and you’ll never get lost. You will also see the story unfolding from hour to hour, minute to minute. For the social media-savvy out there, you will be able to follow us through ANCAlerts, you will get real time updates from the interviews that we are airing, as well as from upcoming stories,” said Velasquez.

An ABS-CBN original "Pipol" with Ces OreƱa-Drilon is making a comeback on ANC, digging deep into the persona of today's newsmakers.

“Masaya ako dahil na-miss ko ang Pipol at maraming fans ang Pipol. Kaya lang ang nakakatawa ang mga fans ng Pipol ay high school pa noon, ngayon nagtatrabaho na. Nakakatuwa kasi sa tagal na nawala ang Pipol, maraming personalidad ang hindi na-feature sa Pipol, so pagkakataon na natin ito na makita ang kanilang buhay,” said Drilon.

Drilon revealed a subject she wants to have on the show.

“Nabasa ko ang kanyang talambuhay sa isang magazine, talagang grabe. Hanggang ngayon taga-hanga ako ni Nora [Aunor],” she said.

Teddy Locsin Jr. will give his "Teditorial" every night on "The World Tonight".
