Last June 17, news reporter and TV personality Korina Sanchez clarified the issue that has been surrounding her for the past few weeks. Rumors have been circulating that the former TV Patrol news anchor has been poaching news talents for businessman Manny Villar’s new network.

“Once and For All. No, it is not true,” Korina affirmed in her post.


The 57-year-old TV personality took to her Instagram to explain and clarify the fake news that’s going around. Korina herself was shocked to find out such a rumor was circulating since she had never met anyone from Manny Villar’s team.

“There has been no communication whatsoever between myself and anyone officially representing former Senator and tycoon Manny Villar’s supposed new network. After the online article came out I was surprised people were applying for jobs to me,” she wrote.

Korina initially had no intention of clarifying the rumor at first since she felt like there was no need for it but her agent urged her to do so in order to stop the issue once and for all.

“I am a broadcaster and journalist [with a] creative mind at heart. It is what I do best, I think. I produce my own shows now. So, whenever and wherever I am welcome, and there is an opportunity, I will listen and possibly collaborate. I am very happy being in TV5 and A2Z as a line producer via Brightlight”

“If at all, I’ve only called my good friends Cheryl Favila and Maricar Asprec once or twice to ask if either of them know of anyone without work—- because I have work waiting for my own show Rated Korina airing on both TV5 and A2Z. Cheryl and Maricar are not ‘helping me pirate people.’ [Chair] is lucratively freelance as she is,” she explained in detail.

While she acknowledges and is thrilled that she is called “fab hunter,” she clarified that she is not headhunting for Manny Villar’s new network.
