Korina Sanchez intends to focus on postgraduate studies after leaving radio show

Jan 6, 2014

Last January 4, it was previously reported on PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that Korina Sanchez will no longer have a radio show on DZMM titled Rated Korina.

This is the same radio talk show where Korina criticized CNN anchor Anderson Cooper for his report about Tacloban City five days after it was hit by super typhoon Yolanda.

In the CNN show AC360, Anderson observed, "I have not seen a large Philippine military presence out around here."

He also reported that "the search and rescue never materialized."

As a result, Korina spoke up on her radio show regarding CNN's report.

“Itong si Anderson Cooper, sabi wala daw government presence sa Tacloban. Mukhang hindi niya alam ang sinasabi niya," said the broadcaster on Rated Korina.

Incidentally, Korina is the wife of Mar Roxas who is the secretary of the Department of the Interior and Local Government.

Several weeks after her tiff with CNN anchor Anderson, Korina bids farewell to her radio show.

According to a Twitter post by ABS-CBN AdProm executive Eric John Salut on January 4, Korina resigned from the radio show but she will still be seen in the primetime newcast TV Patrol and the lifestyle magazine TV show Rated K.

“Korina Sanchez resigns from her radio show but will continue her anchor duties in @TVPatrol and her show @NagiisangRatedK. She remains chief correspondent of ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs.”

Here is the official statement of ABS-CBN sent by Mr. Bong Osorio of Corporate Affairs and PR Group regarding Korina's departure:

"Korina Sanchez is currently on leave from her morning program on DZMM to concentrate on her postgraduate studies at the Ateneo de Manila University. This was planned as early as middle of 2013 when Korina informed ABS-CBN management about her intentions to focus on her studies. Korina will continue to be seen on television as anchor of TV Patrol and Rated K."

Rated Korina was replaced by a magazine-talk show called Sakto, which is anchored by Marc Logan and Amy Perez.

The Kapamilya Network describes Sakto as a radio show that "tackles social issues in a lighter but engaging manner and delivers extensive discussions on family matters, human interest stories, and success tales that will inspire the masses."
