TV host German Moreno starts undergoing therapy after mild stroke
MANILA, Philippines–Veteran TV host German Moreno has started undergoing therapy after suffering a mild stroke on New Year’s day, according to his son Federico.
Known in show biz circles as Kuya Germs, Moreno is currently confined in the Acute Stroke Unit of St. Luke’s Medical Center, Quezon City. “Don’t worry, he’s [doing] okay…he’s in good spirits,” Federico said in a text message sent to the Inquirer through GMA 7 head of corporate communications Angel Javier.
“It’s just that he cannot entertain calls or guests in the coming days,” added Federico, who suspects that “overfatigue” might have triggered his father’s stroke.
“We humbly ask for prayers for his quick recovery,” Federico said.
Moreno, 71, currently hosts the long-running, late night variety-talk show “Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman” which airs every Saturday. The TV personality was last seen at Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes’ recent wedding as one of the principal sponsors.
