The ABS-CBN News Channel is getting an old face back to the fold.
Cathy Yang recently announced through her social media accounts that she will return to the network starting this September. Yang comes to ABS-CBN fresh from a 15-year international stint with Bloomberg Asia and CCTV.
Prior to returning to ABS-CBN, Yang worked for the Mother Ignacia-based network during the late 90s, particularly as the anchor of ANC’s ‘Stock Market Live’. For old-time Channel 2 viewers, she was best known as the co-host of ‘Usapang Business’ with Ces Drilon.
In between, Yang worked for Bloomberg Asia and CCTV, and was based in Tokyo and Hong Kong during those years. As an anchor for Bloomberg Asia, Yang was a three-time Best News Anchor winner from the prestigious Asian TV Awards.
Two new projects await Yang at the start of September: ‘Market Edge’ and ‘Business Nightly’, the timeslots of which are yet to be determined. With over two decades of experience, Yang should be an asset to ANC’s deep roster of anchors, not to mention a guiding light to the network’s younger staff.
