MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) -‘Retired’ television host Kris Aquino has been tapped to host the Duterte administration’s national weekend television show, ‘Mula Sa Masa, Para Sa Masa.’
The announcement was made by Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar.
Duterte’s television show is similar to what he established as mayor of Davao City in order to connect with his constituents.
The sister of former President NoyNoy Aquino previously announced her retirement from show business to focus on her health and family. It was also reported that one of the reasons she did not renew her contract with ABS-CBN was the threat that she would be kidnapped by rebel groups in Mindanao.
In announcing Aquino’s appointment as host of Duterte’s show, Andanar said she was the perfect host since she is the “Queen of All Media,” not just the Yellow media but now, also the Duterte media.
