THREE of the pretty lady ANChors of DZMM TeleRadyo, which marks its 1st anniversary this year, are getting married. They are Niña Corpuz, who is with "Radyo Patrol Balita;" Bernadette Sembrano, also with "Radyo Patrol Balita," and Cheryl Cosim, who handles the daily show, "Salamat Doc."

Niña will marry her boyfriend of six years, Vince Rodriguez, who is with Studio 23, an affiliate of ABS-CBN, on May. And guess where the ceremony will take place?

In Paris, FrANCe, that’s where. So far, they expect only their families to attend the wedding.

Why in Paris? we asked Niña.

"We were there once at nagustuhan namin ang lugar," Niña answered.

Niña, aside from her program in DZMM, also has a talk program on ANC. She used to be with "TV Patrol," handling the segment Entertainment.


Bernadette’s fiANCé is a great grandson of the first president of the Philippine Republic, Emilio Aguinaldo. His name is Orange, yes, Orange (Aguinaldo) and is currently the vice mayor of a town in Cavite.

Their wedding, according to Bernadette, will take place on June 12.

Bernadette, who is also in ABS-CBN’s "TV Patrol Sabado and Linggo," hosts a new segment in both "TV Patrol" and "Umagang Kay Ganda" called "Hulog ng La-ngit." The segment aims to help needy people by seeking the help of others who can afford, so to speak.

In its initial segment, "Hulog ng Langit" featured Baby Raiza, a newly-born baby who needed to submit to an operation because her supposed physically abnormal twin sister was stuck on her back.

Baby Raisa was confined at the Magsaysay District Hospital, Quezon City which unfortunately didn’t have the equipment needed for the operation. "Hulog ng Langit" had her transferred to the Philippine Children’s Medical Center, also in Quezon City, which is studying her case thoroughly.

"I love it when I’m able to help," Bernadette said.

Bernadette used to host "Wish Ko Lang" on GMA-7 when she was still with that network. "Wish …" is now being hosted by Vicky Morales.

The public affairs show which Bernadette used to handle for ABS- CBN was "NaGMAmahal, Kapamilya."


At 34, Cheryl said it’s high time she really got married. Happily, she stated, she found the right man, at last.

His name: John FrANCis Alvarez. A businessman, he used to reside in the US. His family, though, hails from Iloilo.

"Kaya, he’s basically malambing," Cheryl enthused.

They have been sweethearts for four years. They are getting married in October.


Peter Musngi, ABS-CBN Broadcasting VP for Manila Radio Division, said that DZMM TeleRadyo is now available on TFC now (www.ABS CBNnow.com), a video and audio streaming subscription service on the internet that provides Filipinos worldwide with access to shows from ABS-CBN.

He further stated that radio must evolve for it to attract all potential audience and listeners, especially "millennial" worldwide. He explained further, "DZMM’s reach via radio is limited to Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. By going into Teleradyo, DZMM is now able to reach Filipinos who are residing outside the Philippines."

This month, DZMM will be promoting Teleradyo in California by participating in the World Caravan organized by the Philippine Tourism Authority.
