Kris Aquino: Queen of All Media's Journey in Television
Kris Aquino shocked fans and followers when she shared on Instagram last March 9, 2016 that she'll have to leave work and ABS-CBN for a healthier lifestyle. She was the host of self-titled morning talk show Kris TV wherein she and her team sampled food from various restaurants, tried out activities in different locations, and reviewed accommodations all over the Philippines. Yesterday, Thursday, was her last taping day for the said magazine show as she opens another chapter in her life as a mother and entrepreneur.


But before the Queen of All Media conquered every platform possible, she had her share of television beginnings. Who was Kris Aquino before Kris TV?

Kris first appeared in a television talk show through the "The Sharon Cuneta Show" in 1987. After her song number, she was interviewed by then 21-year-old Megastar. Kris shared her passion on being in front of the camera, acting, and feeling the crowd.

After doing a few movies, Kris shifted her sights to a career as a talk show host. She was first part of showbiz-oriented talk show in rival networks before her ABS-CBN career was launched through "Today with Kris Aquino" (1996-2001). She also hosted the talk show "Morning Girls" (2002-2004) alongside broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez. It was intended to last only for two weeks but because of the high ratings, it extended to 16 months.
