10 'cutest TV newsmen' in PH ranked
MANILA -- An ABS-CBN regional anchor topped this year's edition of an online magazine's "Cutest TV Newsmen," with three other Kapamilya personalities making it to the list.
In a feature published Friday by Spot.ph, ABS-CBN Bacolod's Ryan Gamboa ranked first among 10 Filipino newsmen described as "eye candy."
Gamboa co-anchors the ABS-CBN News Channel's (ANC) noontime telecast "Dateline Philippines," from the network's news center in Negros Occidental.
"We're pretty sure that the heart rates of viewers from all over the country start to race whenever his segments are aired as part of the national broadcasts," the blurb on Gamboa read.
"We like the fact that he describes himself as a 'sugarcane farmer, mad scientist, Jedi knight, and mutant.' We're suckers for good-looking geeks," it added.
The Top 10 list, said to be an offering of "brainless fun," also included ANC's "Executive Class" host David Celdran, who placed second; ABS-CBN Sports commentator Anton Roxas, fourth; and "TV Patrol" reporter Jeff Canoy, sixth.
Other news personalities in the list were PTV-4's Sandro Hermoso and JC Tejano, third and seventh, respectively; GMA-7's Nielsen Donato and Bam Alegre, fifth and 10th, respectively; and TV5's Carlo Castillo and Gerard Garcia, eighth and ninth, respectively.
Early this week, Spot.ph also released its list of "Top 10 Hottest Newswomen" in the country, with ABS-CBN's Maiki Oreta, Carolyn Bonquin and Tina Marasigan ranking seventh, sixth and second, respectively.
