Korina Sanchez is one of the well-known veteran broadcasters in the country but she hasn’t done any hardcore news reporting in years.
Now that she is on a different network, will Korina be back to doing hard news?
In an interview on the program ‘Wag Po of One PH, the 56-year-old veteran broadcaster revealed that she doesn’t intend to return to making hard news.
One of her reasons is that she doesn’t want to have any enemies and have a quiet life, “For now, I’m really enjoying not having enemies. I’m really enjoying just doing light things, human interest stories, helping people regardless of political inclinations. So tahimik muna ang buhay ko ngayon.”
“May mga nagtatanong talaga sa akin niyan ‘no, like, ‘Okay you’re going to TV5, why don’t you do the news, etcetera?’
Also, she doesn’t want to complicate things especially that her husband, Mar Roxas, is part of the opposition to the current administration, “And ako mismo naman ang nagsabi na, ‘Well, you know, it’s not a secret na yung asawa ko ay nakalaban ng kasalukuyang presidente. And parang hindi tama sigurong panahon na bumalik ako sa hard news.'”
Korina shared that there’s a possibility of her coming back but not in this current administration, “Siguro pagkatapos na lang siguro ng kasalukuyang administrasyon. Dahil, siyempre, kahit na sabihin mong wala kang bias, you know, objective ka… May magkukuwestiyon at magkukuwestiyon sa ‘yo, e.”
“Kaya kahit sa social media hindi ako nagkokomento. Wala akong mga political editorials, I stay away from it. The one time I complained about traffic, dyusko, talaga namang grabe! May tsunami.”
Six weeks after she got involved in a contentious rift with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper during the aftermath of super typhoon Yolanda that hit the Visayas last November 2014, Korina Sanchez left her radio talk show on DZMM.
There were rumors she was fired from TV patrol on ABS CBN in 2015, but she clarfiied that the reason she was taking the leave was to focus on taking online courses at Ateneo de Manila University and the London School of Economics for her Master’s degree in Journalism.
“Officially, it’s really because of school. I’m back in school, ‘di ba? E komo parehong online, akala ko madali. Sukdulan pala ng hirap.”
As of now, Korina leaves everything to fate because for her if she’s meant to do the job she will eventually find her way back to it,
“But you can never take that away from you kung dun ka na talaga, di ba? Kung yun na talaga ang pagkatao mo. Mababalikan at mababalikan pa rin natin ‘yan sa tamang panahon.”
“Hanggang kailan? Hindi natin masasabi.”
