Iza Calzado to co-host 'Kris TV'

Posted at 08/16/12 2:07 AM

MANILA, Philippines – Actress Iza Calzado is set to co-host with Queen of All Media Kris Aquino on her morning talk show.

In her official account on micro-blogging site Twitter, Aquino on Wednesday said that Calzado will be her guest co-host in upcoming days for three episodes of "Kris TV."

Calzado, who currently topbills ABS-CBN's "Kahit Puso'y Masugatan," has previously hosted a number of talk shows before her transfer to the Kapamilya network early this year.

The dramatic actress' hosting stint comes after the passing of the father of Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero.

Chiz has been Aquino's regular co-host on the program since July 2.

Apart from co-hosting "Kris TV," Calzado is also gearing up to host the upcoming second season of reality show "Pinoy Biggest Loser." The weight-loss reality show was previously hosted by veteran actress Sharon Cuneta during its first season, before her transfer to TV5.

Calzado has other reasons to rejoice, as her recent Cinemalaya debut, the Joey Reyes-directed film "Mga Mumunting Lihim," is now slated for a commercial release nationwide on August 22.

Also starring Judy Ann Santos, Agot Isidro and Janice de Belen, "Mga Mumunting Lihim" was recently Rated A by the Cinema Evaluation Board.
