Former ABS-CBN and DZMM broadcaster Ted Failon returns on air with a new program over Radyo 5, under the TV5 media banner.
Failon will anchor the four-hour morning news magazine program with Czarina Marie Guevara, more popularly known as DJ ChaCha, who was also his long-time radio partner while hosting “Failon Ngayon” over ABS-CBN’s AM radio outfit DZMM.
“We are excited to deliver a paradigm shift on FM Radio. And we are thankful that Radyo 5 will give us the opportunity to serve the people with this one-of-a- kind format,” Failon said.
“Maraming, maraming salamat po sa Radyo 5 sa pagkakataon na ito. At sa lahat ng aming mga tagapakinig, mas gaganda ang inyong umaga dahil malapit nang mabago ang tunog ng FM Radio!” he added.
News5 chief Luchi Cruz-Valdes confirmed Failon’s transfer to the Kapatid network from ABS-CBN, where he worked for three decades, on Tuesday.
Ted’s stellar 30-year career as a broadcast journalist has earned him countless accolades as Best AM Radio Announcer and Best TV News Anchor. He is the recipient of multiple Hall of Fame awards from organizations such as Anak TV and ComGuild Center for Journalism, while his radio program “Failon Ngayon” is the only Catholic Mass Media Awards Hall of Fame awardee for Best News Commentary. He was also awarded the prestigious Ka Doroy Broadcaster of the Year by the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas.
