Boy Abunda back as a Kapuso

Philippine showbiz’s “King of Talk,” Boy Abunda is officially back with GMA Network as a Kapuso, 23 years after he left in 1999.

Last December 15, a livestream event during his contract signing confirmed his return to GMA Network.

“Nag-umpisa ako sa GMA noong meron pa akong buhok. Ngayon, wala na pero laban pa rin po,” Abunda began, recalling his earlier days with the network. “Pero mula sa aking puso, salamat sa inyong tiwala sa aking kakayahan bilang isang presenter, talk show host at interviewer.”

To recall, Abunda first joined GMA as a public relations consultant. He later became one of the hosts of the now-defunct variety series “Show and Tell” in 1994.

He also became a host of the entertainment talk show “Startalk” in October 1995. In 1999, he moved to ABS-CBN where he hosted the series “The Buzz,” “Boy & Kris,” “Kontrobersyal,” “Showbiz News Ngayon,” “The Bottomline with Boy Abunda,” and “Tonight with Boy Abunda” before departing in 2020.
