After being introduced as one of the hosts of the PIE Channel’s morning show Barangay PIE Silog, Gretchen Fullido said she welcomed the chance to showcase her hosting skills in a new avenue.

“I’m very, very honored to be part of Barangay PIE Silog. First time ko makasama sa isang show na ganito. And from TV Patrol na nakikita niyo, dito nakakatawa ako with my ka-troPIE. Masaya. Kumakanta ako. Sumasayaw minsan. Very proud ako sa handog namin kasi dito sa Barangay PIE-Silog ang handog namin ay practical public service, yung mga valid feeling sniyo ay linalabas niyo sa Sumbungan HQ tapos meron kaming mga job offerings. It’s like a Bulletin na puwede lahat ng kailangan niyo malaman, mga makabuluhang impormasyon, lahat yan nasa morning show namin na brunch and early lunch mapapanuod niyo,” she said during the PIE Channel mediacon.

Every morning, viewers can bond with Gretchen’s “brunchkada” of co-hosts which include MNL48’s Abby Trinidad, Frances Cabatuando, Mayor TV, Tristan Ramirez (Monday to Saturday), Madam Inutz, Migs Bustos, at Nicole Cordovez (Sunday) in Barangay PIE Silog.

“Ang bilis namin nag-gel. Parang family na kami. Napaka-clingy ko na sa kanila. Dito when I started with PIE, ang lakas maka-bagets. Feel na feel ko talaga yung mga batchmates ko. The difference between the traditional TV na nakasanayan natin is ngayon ang bilis ng interaction dun sa mga interactive polls at mga sagot ng mga ka-troPIE natin. Lahat nakikita mo agad. Tapos ang super favorite ko pa sa Barangay PIE Silog yung Quiz and Tell dahil may mga classmates kami na sumasagot ng mga questions namin ay mga classmates worldwide. Ang bilis nung exchange. So nakikita mo talaga na gusto nila makisali, gusto nila maki-interact sa atin. It’s just so much fun,” she admitted. 

After working as a segment anchor on TV Patrol for more than a decade, Gretchen shared how it feels to do something separate from her usual news segments.

“Sa November kasi mag-te-12 years na ako as Star Patroller and hindi ko talaga nagagawa yung real self ko which is mabungisngis talaga akong tao. And dito sa PIE dito lumabas yun. Even nung first time pa lang mag-script reading to practice, automatic eh na I felt at home talaga. Yung real self ko talaga lumabas. Kaya ngayon pag sa TV Patrol dun ako nag-ko-control. Huwag kang galawgaw sabi ko kasi galawgaw ako (laughs). Tapos dito naman sinasabi nila galaw daw ako. Kasi nag-a-adjust pa ako. Hinahanap ko yung timpla. Kasi sa Patrol daw stiff ako pero dito naman ang likot likot ko. So ngayon, naguguluhan na ako kung ano ba yung totoo (laughs). Pero masaya. I’m just really having so much fun and mas nalalabas ko yung totoong ako,” she explained. 

With her new take on hosting, Gretchen said she welcomes any observations that netizens may have about her work on PIE.

“Honestly, wala pa akong nakikita na bina-bash ako. I think natutuwa sila sa mga kalokohan dito. Kung meron man siguro, I would take it with a grain of salt kasi when I started with Barangay PIE Silog talagang ang layunin ko talaga ay makapagbigay ng practical na public service, to enjoy with my classmates, ka-troPIE, and ka-brunchkada. So kung meron silang criticism I would take it openly because I know they mean well and babasahin ko yung mga sinasabi nila and maybe if it’s for my improvement then I will welcome it. Yung mga nag-ba-bash siguro na talagang wala namang sense or gusto lang mang-bash, ayoko ng negativity at drama sa life eh so hindi ko na pinapansin yun. Always good vibes kami sa umaga. Gusto lang namin makapaghatid ng saya at ligaya araw-araw,” she said.
