In today’s episode of DZMM TeleRadyo’s “S.R.O”, host Alvin Elchico delivered a bad news. Viewers of the show were looking for his co-host Doris Bigornia who was not present since Monday.
According to Elchico, Bigornia, popularly known as “Mutya ng Masa”, suffered a heart attack last Sunday. She is in the ICU and will be needing open-heart surgery.
“Bago po tayo mag-umpisa dahil marami po kasi ang nagtatanong. So nagpaalam po ako sa pamilya, ni Mutya ng Masa, Doris Bigornia, na sabihin po sa inyo, pinapasabi lang po, ang Mutya ng Masa po, siya po ay inatake sa puso noong Linggo, papuntang Lunes. Siya po ay sinugod sa ospital at ngayon ay nasa ICU. Kakailangan po ng ano eh, ng open heart surgery,” informed Elchico.
Elchico also shared during the show that Bigornia’s family is asking for prayers from everyone.
“Ang pamilya po ay humihingi po ng panalangin. Kaya sa ngalan po ng pamilya ni Doris Bigornia, ang Mutya ng Masa, kami po sa DZMM TeleRadyo ay humihingi po ng inyong panalangin. Ipagdasal po natin na mapagtagumpayan po ni Doris ang susuungin po niya na pagsubok,” the host added.
Elchico further said that although Bigornia is conscious, she still needs to undergo open-heart surgery.
“Nakakausap ko siya, conscious po si Doris. Pero kakailanganin po niya yung open-heart surgery pagkatapos ng atake sa puso. At least yan official po ninyong narinig dito sa kanyang programa. Kasi the show is not the same kung wala po ang Mutya ng Masa. Alam ninyo naman yan, pakwela, pero may banat, marunong,” announced Elchico.
Bigornia is one of ABS-CBN’s veteran journalist and field reporters. In 2006, she left the Kapamilya Network due to management issues and pursued freelancing as a reporter. However, in 2013, she returned and was given her own show, “Mutya ng Masa”, a current affairs program aimed at touching people’s lives. Aside from having her own program, she also hosts “Umagang Kay Ganda” while doing reports for “TV Patrol” and “Bandila”.
With her talent, she became a co-host of Suhestyon, Reaksyon at Opinyon (S.R.O.), a DZMM TeleRadyo program. Together with Elchico, they analyze issues with varying perspectives. Bigornia’s wit and humor, provided lighter discussion of pressing issues.
Bigornia has undoubtedly dedicated her life in delivering news the Filipino masses need. Now that she needs our help, let us offer our prayers to the speedy recovery of our “Mutya ng Masa”, Doris Bigornia.
