January 9, 2012

MANILA, Philippines - After a two-year hiatus, veteran broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez is back on the airwaves as she started her new radio magazine program "Rated Korina" on DZMM 630 on Monday (January 9).

During the first part of her show, Sanchez was reunited with former radio partner Ted Failon, where she confessed to having first-day jitters after a long break from radio. "Hindi na yata ako marunong pumindot," she said, while looking at the buttons while seated in the anchor's chair.

Sanchez said the show will be an extension of her TV program "Rated K" and will feature human interest stories that are "more important than politics."

During the show, Sanchez bared some of the top New Year's resolutions in the US, which included removing debt, going cold turkey from smoking, taking care of their health and restoring relationships.

Sanchez took a break from her journalism career after getting engaged to vice-presidential bet and now Transportation and Communications Secretary Mar Roxas. She returned as one of the anchors of ABS-CBN's primetime newscast TV Patrol in 2010.

MANILA, Philippines - ‘I can’t ask for more,’ said Korina Sanchez, proud wife of DOTC Sec. Mar Roxas. ‘Year 2011 has been a good year for both of us.’

Well, especially for her.

To start off, Korina was given a Hall of Fame Award by the Catholic Mass Media Awards (CMMA) for her ABS-CBN Sunday show Rated K and for TV Patrol, the newscast that she co-hosts with Noli ‘Kabayan’ de Castro and Ted Failon (shown with Korina, top photo, with Vice Pres. Jojo Binay and Cardinal Gaudencio Rosales during the recent CMMA).

Recently, Korina was given a recognition as Amazing Alumni by her alma mater, Maryknoll (now Miriam) College Foundation (photo at center, with, from left Matec D.

During the Miriam event, Korina’s 1986 batch mates (including Lynda Garcia, bottom photo, leftmost; and Olen Jalandoni, fourth from right) gave her a standing ovation. The same batch donated P1M to the deaf scholars of Miriam College (also in photo).
