In 100 Words: New Host for Red Alert

‘Red Alert’ has a new host.

Beginning tomorrow night, the ABS-CBN disaster-oriented program will be hosted by Jeff Canoy. Canoy replaced the now-departed Atom Araullo who recently returned to GMA Network after over a decade of service on the Kapamilya network.

Prior to his big break on ‘Red Alert’, Canoy served as a long-time field reporter for ABS-CBN News, and his recent work on the Marawi crisis earned raves from netizens both here and abroad. Canoy will continue to serve as field reporter while adding a new hat as host of ‘Red Alert.

Canoy will also join Prof. Mahar Lagmay and Ted Esguerra on ‘Red Alert sa DZMM’ airing every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. As for ‘Red Alert’ on television, it will still air Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. on DZMM TeleRadyo and after ‘Bandila’ on ABS-CBN.

In 150 Words: It’s Showtime Finally Goes Public Service

‘It’s Showtime’ has decided to help the masses.

The ABS-CBN noontime show recently joined forces with the ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs team to give the latest updates on Typhoon Lando, as well as news on the evacuation and relief efforts. Reporters Jeff Canoy and Atom Araullo appeared on the show to inform the hosts and the viewers of the situation.

The rare moment of public service may have helped ‘It’s Showtime’ regain its footing, but for a show that is clearly desperate for an audience, this is not enough. ‘Eat Bulaga”s ‘Juan for All, All for Juan’ segment has been helping numerous barangays and schools for over five years, and if ‘It’s Showtime’ were to be more devoted in reaching to the masses, they would have to work harder for a cause.

Perhaps it’s time for Vice Ganda and the ‘madlang pipol’ to be more charitable, just like what Tito, Vic, Joey and the Dabarkads are doing. AlDub may be helping ‘Eat Bulaga’ achieve greater heights these days, but at least they are willingly devoted to help others.
