It’s been almost four months since he first got emotional after the announcement of ABS-CBN’s shutdown, with the cease and desist order including MYX and their longtime VJ Robi Domingo fondly recalled how he got started in the Kapamilya network’s music channel. 

In an Instagram post last August 28, Robi shared a bit of memorabilia after being welcomed into the MYX family.

He wrote, “Found this big cheque the other day near my closet. Whenever I see this, I remember that night in Trinoma for the Myx VJ search in 2008, and also the value of it. I don't see 100k worth of services but a million dreams and moments I gained when I became a part of this family. Salamat, MYX. 🧡💛♥️”


In his next social media post, the TV host also bid farewell to his job as a MYX VJ. 

"Because of you, I get to SPEAK.

I get to speak my mind.
I get to speak to talented artists.
I get to speak about music videos and more.
I get to speak with the best of the best personalities.
I get to speak about what’s right.

Thank you.
This has been VJ Robi.
Always and forever,
Myx. Your Choice. Your Music."

After his stint as part of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus in 2008, Robi joined the MYX channel’s video jock search and joined the roster along with batchmates Monica Yncierto, Bianca Roque and Chino Liu Pio. 

Apart from becoming a VJ, Robi also became one of the most sought after hosts in the Kapamilya network. Robi admitted it was not an easy start for him. 

"I did some spiels with the group and by myself. Oh boy, it was so difficult at first. I kept on stuttering and buckling but as it went on, I got used to it. The other VJs tease me as the baby since I am the youngest. Oh well, that's life. Maybe that's the problem when you're the youngest...and the cutest!” he said jokingly in an 2008 interview.
