TV Patrol World is the flagship national network news broadcast of ABS-CBN in the Philippines. It can be heard simultaneously in DZMM and its TV counterpart, DZMM TeleRadyo. TV Patrol celebrates their 20th anniversary since its inception in 1987 (as TV Patrol), it has been the longest running Filipino primetime newscast.


TV Patrol (1987-2004)

When it debuted on March 2, 1987, it was known simply as TV Patrol (first ever tabloid newscast). A youthful-looking Philippine Vice President Noli de Castro was one of the principal anchors of TV Patrol in its debut, along with Robert Arevalo who was eventually replaced by Frankie Evangelista after two months, with Mel Tiangco, and Angelique Lazo, and later Ted Failon and Christine Bersola-Babao in place of Angelique Lazo.[1] Also, Ernie Baron served as the programme's chief meteorologist and provided viewers trivia pertaining to science and history. Mel Tiangco moved to GMA Network when she was suspended for doing a TV commercial. Eventually, De Castro became the sole anchor in April 1, 1996.

When De Castro ran for the Philippine Senate in 2001, he was replaced by Korina Sanchez. She was joined by Henry Omaga-Diaz and Aljo Bendijo. Marc Logan served as the news reader of trivial segments and features. After several changes in the anchor chair, Julius Babao replaced Omaga-Diaz and Bendijo in 2003, until November 19, 2004, before being reintroduced to TV Patrol World.[2]

TV Patrol still holds the record of having the highest rating newscast when former anchor Korina Sanchez had an exclusive live interview with Kris Aquino regarding the latter's break-up with Joey Marquez. According to AGB, the interview garnered a rating of 47.2% in Mega Manila.[3] It also holds the highest nationwide TV ratings record since Taylon Nelson Sofres (TNS) started conducting its nationwide TV ratings survey when its April 16, 2009 edition of the newscast featured the developing story of the tragedy involving the wife of TV Patrol news anchor Ted Failon.[4] Korina Sanchez is back to host the special coverage of the funeral of the late President Cory Aquino.

At present, the newscasts' main anchors are Ted Failon, Julius Babao, and Karen Davila, while special segments are anchored by Kim Atienza, Phoemela Barranda and Bernadette Sembrano.

TV Patrol World recently updated its logo design, soundtrack and 3D graphic animation sets but the news format remain the same, with floating large projection screens that allow the anchors to virtually "talk" to correspondents in live feeds (usually used during weekend editions).

TV Patrol 2008 rebranding

On March 31, 2008, TV Patrol unveiled its new set, graphics (with the same red, green, and blue hues identified with the ABS-CBN logo), opening billboard, and new segments, but it retained some of its old segments. The new look is accompanied by slight changes in Patrol's segments, particularly Citizen Patrol, and the introduction of Hulog ng Langit, which was specially anchored by Bernadette Sembrano.[5].

Theme Music

The music used by TV Patrol during 1987-1992 is from the Greek composer Vangelis with the track "Pulstar". After that on 1992-1996, Ryan Cayabyab composed an original theme for both TV Patrol & The World Tonight, respectively. When Noli de Castro went solo, it adopted the music entitled "Allegro" from Gari Communications. "Allegro" originated on the San Francisco CBS owned station KPIX-TV in 1992. To this day, TV Patrol World still uses the same melodic theme with re-arrangement done by Jimmy Antiporda (the old theme still used in the radio).
