MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Retiree entertainment personalities Cynthia Patag and Jim Paredes have been tapped by ABS-CBN to co-host a new talk show called “Dilawan,” according to reliable sources who requested anonymity for fear of retaliation by their employer television network.
The comedienne and former Apo Hiking Society singer-member are known to be pro-Aquino and anti-Duterte as can be seen from their respective social media pages. They have been critical of every thing that’s related to the current president and all praises for their fallen hero, NoyNoy Aquino. They just can’t move on.
The new prime-time show will feature anti-Duterte guests. It will replace the Kris Aquino-Boy Abunda show, “Aquino and Abunda Tonight.”
The decision to replace the Aquino-Abunda show with the Patag-Paredes show came after Kris Aquino formalized her departure from ABS-CBN and her move to the rival network GMA-7.
Paredes, who lives in Australia, will be doing the show with Patag via Skype.
The new show’s premiere guests are Senator Leila De Lima and singer Leah Navarro.
