Christine Bersola looked back on her stint as anchor in ABS-CBN’s “TV Patrol” and how she was teased then by veteran anchor Mel Tiangco to Bersola’s now husband Julius Babao.

Bersola’s reminiscence came in celebration of the news program’s 35th anniversary on air, as seen on Bersola’s Instagram page last Saturday, March 5. She also showed throwback photos and videos of the behind-the-scenes moments from the show.


“It was truly, the good [old] days. Imagine, working alongside the broadcasting icons: (Ninong Noli) [godfather Noli de Castro] (Ninong Noli), Ka Kiko (sir Frankie Evangelista) and Ninang (godmother) Mel Tiangco. What a privilege indeed!” she said.

The broadcast journalist then recounted how Tiangco was a part of her and Babao’s love story, which she described as one of the “highlights of her broadcasting career.” Bersola also showed an old mirror she used in the program in 1996 that she still has now.


“And whenever [Julius Babao] would pinch hit for Kabayan or Ka Kiko, Tita Mel would always tease us, ‘Uy bagay kayo!’ at ayun na nga, nagkatuluyan kami ni Julius! (‘You look good together!’ and so I and Julius ended up together!) Wow!” Bersola stated.

“Cheers to [‘TV Patrol’] and how it changed the broadcasting and news landscape in the Philippines,” she added.

Bersola was recently joined by Babao in TV5 network, after the latter’s departure from ABS-CBN, his home network for 28 years. JB
