In a recent interview with Korina Sanchez, the award-winning broadcast journalist told that she looks forward to going back to work since her official leave of absence already ended for more than two months now. “Actually, my official leave ended last May 11. Pero dahil nag-file si Mar (Roxas) ng protest at nagkaron ng complication sa kanyang canvassing so I decided to extend my leave for a while. Naintindihan naman ng ABS-CBN 'yun, mabait sila sa akin. Pero siyempre kailangan may representasyon ako sa management. So we’re having a series of meetings to see where do I go from here. Tutal naman Citizen Mar na lang si Mar ngayon, wala naman siyang posisyon sa gobyerno, hindi naman siya kandidato, so sana makabalik din ako.”

Korina further stressed that she had been very careful not to use her position in ABS-CBN to her advantage when she campaigned for Mar’s bid for vice president during the previous national elections. As such, she’s hoping that there wouldn’t be any conflict with her work. But as ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs head Maria Ressa said in a recent press con, the rule of thumb is to wait for another year before reassessing if Korina could resume her responsibilities as one of their leading broadcasters. “Sinugurado ko naman na ‘di ko ginamit ang kahit ano sa aking mga plataporma, maparadyo man yan or TV para sa kampanya ni Mar. And more than a year before the elections, nag-leave na ako. Para yung integrity is there at hindi masabi ng ibang tao na ginamit ko ang ABS-CBN. I hope they also appreciate that,” she explained.

When asked what she wants to do aside from hosting Rated K, Korina was quick to say that she missed her tandem with Ted Failon on DZMM Teleradyo. “I hope to be able to go back to radio kasi yun ang buhay ko na talaga, kung anong lumalabas sa bibig mo ikaw yun e. Siyempreopinyon yun, may lisensya ka na magkaron ng opinion, mas walang bahid yun. Namiss ko yung radio so hopefully makabalik ako dun. Pero depende pa rin yan sa management,” she stated.
