On Wednesday evening, “TV Patrol” trended on Twitter because of the comeback of the award-winning journalist.

It has been 10 years since she last became one of the anchors of the top-rating news program in the country.

“Sa totoo lang, kinakabahan at nininerbyos ako nung una. I haven’t done #TVPatrol in 10 years and I haven’t done #Bandila in almost 7 months. I was last in TV Patrol 2004-2010 with Julius & Ted then moved to Bandila from 2010-2020 with Julius & Ces,” she wrote on Instagram.

“Noong nagkaroon ng COVID, the late-night newscast went off air mid-March for safety reasons... hanggang sa tuluyan nang hindi na-renew ang franchise. But look how God works. Eto at nakapag-sit in pa ako tonight! Talaga naman si Lord, puro surprise. Taking it one day at a time,” she added.
