tv patrol worldTV Patrol World is the flagship national network news broadcast of ABS-CBN in the Philippines. It can be heard in DZMM at the radio and its TV segment, DZMM TeleRadyo. Since its inception in 1987 (as TV Patrol), it has been the and longest running Filipino primetime newscast. The newscast pioneered the Philippine newscasts, with fast-paced delivery of news reports, accompanied with flashy graphic animations and music. This was soon imitated by other newscasts in the Philippines. It is broadcast from the ABS-CBN Broadcast Complex in Quezon City.

old tv patrolTV Patrol (1987-2004)

When it debuted on March 2, 1987, it was known simply as TV Patrol. Philippine Vice President Noli de Castro was one of the principal anchors of TV Patrol in its debut, along with Robert Arevalo who was eventually replaced by the late Francisco "Kiko" Evangelista after two months, Mel Tiangco, and Angelique Lazo, and later Ted Failon and Christine Bersola in place of Angelique Lazo. Also, the late Ernie Baron served as the programme's chief meteorologist and provided viewers trivia pertaining to science and history. Mel Tiangco moved to GMA Network when she was suspended for doing a TV commercial. Eventually, De Castro became the sole anchor.

When De Castro ran for the Philippine Senate in 2001, he was replaced by Henry Omaga-Diaz who frequently substituted for De Castro in the past. He was soon joined by Korina Sanchez and Aljo Bendijo. Marc Logan served as the news reader of trivial segments and features. After several changes in the anchor chair, the newscast was anchored by Sanchez and Julius Babao until November 19, 2004, before being reformatted to TV Patrol World. It still holds the record of having the highest rating news when former anchor Korina Sanchez had an exclusive live interview with Kris Aquino regarding the latter's break-up with Joey Marquez. According to AGB, the interview had a rating of 47.2% at Mega-Manila.

It is aired nationwide by the network every Weeknights at 6:30-8:00 p.m. on ABS-CBN Manila and all ABS-CBN Regional Stations Nationwide (10:30 a.m. UTC, 5:30 a.m. US EST).

And via the interactive radio through DZMM TeleRadyo on SkyCable Channel 22. TV Patrol World recently updated it's logo design, soundtrack and 3D graphic animation sets but the news format remain the same, with floating large projection screens that allow the anchors to virtually "talk" to correspondents in live feeds (usually used during weekend editions).

Weekend editions (TV Patrol Sabado and TV Patrol Linggo)

The newscast's weekend editions, retitled TV Patrol Sabado (Saturday) and TV Patrol Linggo (Sunday) from TV Patrol World and anchored by Alex Santos and Bernadette Sembrano, are broadcast on Saturdays at 8:30-9:00 p.m. & Sundays at 6:00-6:45 p.m. Manila time (12:30 p.m. UTC, 7:30 a.m. US EST).

Nationwide ratings

In the January 15, 2007 issue of BusinessWorld, a local broadsheet containing Business reports, AGB-Nielsen Media Research, the official ratings provider, released for the first time the official results of its Nationwide Urban Television Audience Measurement. The NUTAM was officially launched last October 16, 2006 to determine the TV ratings and audience share of local TV Programs from the different urban areas in the Philippines. The Nationwide Viewing Panel results for the week ending January 6, 2007, showed that in terms of individuals, 8 out of top 10 programs came from ABS-CBN with TV Patrol World being in the 8th place with a rating of 13.9 and an audience share of 45.4, while GMA's 24 Oras was in the 10th place with a rating of 13.2 and an audience share of 41.7. In terms of households, all top 10 programs came from ABS-CBN with TV Patrol World being in the 7th place with a rating of 28.1 and an audience share of 46.6, while 24 Oras did not make it in the top 10.[4]

Theme Music

The music used by TV Patrol during 1987-1992 is from the Greek composer Vangelis with the track "Pulstar". After that on 1992-1996, Ryan Cayabyab composed an original theme for both TV Patrol & The World Tonight. When Noli de Castro went solo , it adopted the music entitled "Allegro" from Gari Communications. To this day, TV Patrol World still uses the same melodic theme with re-arrangement done by Jimmy Antiporda (the old theme still used in the radio).The present theme rearranged sometimes.
