Kris Aquino is all set to host her own talk show on ABS-CBN.
For the past couple of weeks, she has been giving updates regarding the progress of her show, which was initially believed to be a relaunch of Today with Kris Aquino. This morning talk show aired on ABS-CBN from 1996 until 2001.
In her tweet posted on her official Twitter account (@itsmekrisaquino) last May 17, Kris reminisced: "15 yrs after having my 1st daily talk show in ABS, going back to our roots. I remember asking u what u thought of several talk formats for me- the Today w/ Kris Aquino 2011 re-boot seemed the most winning for all of us & here we go."
But on May 30, Kris announced via her official Twitter account that the working title of her show would be Kris TV.
Last Monday, June 13, Kris expressed how nervous she felt about handling a talk show again. She posted this tweet: "Texted my sisters last night- I’m nervous for Kris TV & asked them to super pray. It’s been a year since I left Buzz & SNN- hoping I’m still vibrant, enthusiastic & consistently pleasant!"
A few hours later, she shared details about her interview with Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero: "Headed home. I thank God for giving me an inspiring 1st day at work on Kris TV! Chiz was down to earth & super knowledgeable..,"
It will be recalled that in May 2010, Kris voluntarily gave up hosting two Kapamilya shows: The Buzz and SNN (Showbiz News Ngayon).
She made the decision after consulting with her sisters, Ballsy Aquino-Cruz, Pinky Aquino-Abellada, and Viel Aquino-Dee.
Part of Kris’s announcement back then stated: "Napagpasyahan po namin na for the duration of Noy’s presidency magpapaalam po ako sa aking mga shows that can cause controversy for him [referring to their brother, Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III]."
