Amy Perez, Jeff Canoy, and Johnson Manabat, the weekday companions of Kapamilya early birds who have been watching TeleRadyo’s morning show “Sakto,” which is celebrating its second year on air, shared that their bond is stronger than ever.
According to Amy, their trust in each other is deeper as they live out their vow of bringing the right mix of news and fun to audiences on weekday mornings together.
“Sobra na ‘yung trust namin sa isa’t isa. Ika nga nila when it comes to hosting, kailangan kahit na wala ka nang salitaan, tinginan lang, alam mo na dapat kung ikaw na ‘to o siya na ‘to. Sa dalawang taon, umabot na kami sa level na ‘yun. Na-develop na namin ‘yung ganoong rapport, trust, at understanding na nandiyan kami para sa isa’t isa,” Amy said.
The connection of TeleRadyo’s morning trio is evident as they deliver the news and banter with each other effortlessly. In fact, Johnson, who never experienced hosting a morning show prior to “Sakto,” said that he always felt the support and guidance of Tyang Amy and Jeff so he can adjust his hosting skills to fit the morning show format.
“Sa show na ‘to ko na-feel ‘yung alalay nila. Kasi ako galing sa news, tapos sila morning show ang orientation, so pinalambot nila ako rito para sumakto sa format ng morning show na ‘di laging serious. Nararamdaman ko na hindi nila ako iniiwan,” Johnson said.
Jeff on the other hand considers “Sakto” as a blessing, saying that the TeleRadyo morning show came at the right time to fill in the gap left by ABS-CBN’s “Umagang Kay Ganda.”
“Bawat umaga may dalang pangako na pwedeng mas maging maganda ‘yung araw tapos part ka ng ganoong misyon. ‘Yun ang feeling kong blessing talaga ang pakiramdam kasi binibigyan ka ng chance na tumulong sa mga Kapamilya at kababayan mo na magbigay ng impormasyon and at the same time, magpasaya,” he explained.
’Yung mahalaga ay may puwang na ulit sa umaga para sa balita at impormasyon. ‘Yun talaga ang na-miss ng marami sa mga Kapamilya natin,” Jeff added.
Amy, Jeff, and Johnson are also hopeful that as the pandemic nears its end, they will get to invite more live guests, feature live performances from artists, do cooking segments, explore the outdoors, and more.
For their second anniversary, “It’s Showtime” Miss Q&A winner Anne Patricia Lorenzo and Ogie Alcasid celebrated the milestone as guests on the morning show. Viewers can expect other celebrities and more surprise guests to be with Amy, Jeff, and Johnson in the days to come.
Watch “Sakto” from Monday to Friday, 6 am to 7:30 am on TeleRadyo and Kapamilya Channel on free TV, cable, and online via iWantTFC, the ABS-CBN News YouTube Channel, the DZMM TeleRadyo Facebook page, and the ABS-CBN Radio Service App.
