In a media conference held last Thursday, July 11, ABS-CBN music channel MYX introduced Kapamilya teen stars Edward Barber and Ylona Garcia as the newest addition to their growing family.
Completing the new set of VJs dubbed as #TheNewMYXCrew, the two celebrities, alongside the MYX VJ Search 2019 winners, officially joined current hosts Robi Domingo, Ai Dela Cruz, and Samm Alvero on board for what is expected to be an exciting ride in the months to come.
In an interview with MYX, Edward said: “I’ve always been a shy person, and until now I still am.” He added: “Hosting is so far out of my comfort zone, but I realized it’s something I want to work for.”
Meanwhile, Ylona Garcia, a fan of a diverse set of artists ranging from Billie Eilish to Christina Aguilera to The Weeknd to Kanye West, promised to bring nothing but good vibes to her special segments.
“I’ve always admired VJs because they’re all about bringing good energy," she said. "The type of host I’d love to be is super chill and nothing but good vibes,” she added
Aside from the two Kapamilya stars, MYX also welcomed to the crew MYX VJ Search 2019 winners Anton Fausto, an Atenean radio jock; Aya Fernandez, Miss Tourism International 2018 winner; and Dani Mortel, a lifestyle vlogger who graduated from UP Diliman.
Apart from the introduction of the new MYX VJs, a new YouTube channel called All Music MYX which highlights all-new performances from its popular segment MYX Live! debuted during the event.
MYX, tagged as the number one music channel in the Philippines, has included notable TV personalities through the years including Luis Manzano, Nikki Gil, Iya Villania, and Heart Evangelista among others
