Korina Sanchez Leaves DZMM Radio Talk Show

January 05, 2014

ABS-CBN Chief correspondent Korina Sanchez has resigned from her radio program. Her resignation comes six weeks after her controversial falling-out with CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.

On Saturday, ABS-CBN ad and promo head Eric John Salut tweeted about Korina’s resignation wherein he said that although she’s vacating her radio talk show, Korina will continue her duties on TV Patrol and her TV show Rated K.

Replacing “Rated Korina” on DZMM is Amy Perez and Marc Logan’s new program “Sakto.” This will run at 10-11 AM, Monday to Friday.
Korina became the subject of the netizen’s ire after she criticized Anderson Cooper’s reporting after the latter reported the lack of government presence in Tacloban a few days after the devastating Typhoon Haiyan’s landfall.

After becoming aware of the criticism Anderson urged Korina to go to Tacloban to see the situation for herself.

Korina was noticeably absent from her radio show after the squabble. There were reports that Korina was suspended by ABS-CBN after the incident but the network never released a statement about it.

Korina maintained a low profile during the holidays; it seems she spent it in the United States . A photo posted by talent manager Girlie Rodis shows Korina with Director Leo Katigbak at her flat in New York.
