TV PATROL WEEKEND Abs Cbn June 10 2012

Weekend Edition;

TV Patrol first aired on weekends as an occasional special broadcast. Its first weekend broadcast in September 2001 featured news about the battle between the American forces and the Taliban-led Afghan forces during the Afghan War. It also covered the Oakwood mutiny on July 27, 2003.

The weekend editions premiered on Sunday, May 9, 2004 as TV Patrol Sabado and TV Patrol Linggo with Ces Oreña-Drilon and Henry Omaga-Diaz as its first anchors. It in time replaced ABS-CBN Weekend News as ABS-CBN's sole weekend newscast. During this period, the weekend editions used to occupy middle evening time slots between 8pm and 10pm. Ces Oreña-Drilon left the weekend edition for ABS-CBN Insider in 2005, and was replaced by Bernadette Sembrano.

On July 8, 2006, Alex Santos replaced Henry Omaga-Diaz after the latter left the show for Bandila on July 2, 2006. The weekend editions stopped their simulcast over DZMM and moved to its present early evening time slot upon his arrival. However the Sunday telecast in several years remained in the mid-evening slots until early 2010.

On July 3, 2010, three days after the first 2010 revamp, the two weekend editions merged into TV Patrol Weekend.

In recent editions, a new segment called Kuwentong Obrero (Workers' Story) is fitted into the newscast, which tackles the Philippines' great labor sector.

On November 26, 2011, Alex Santos and Bernadette Sembrano were replaced by Pinky Webb and Alvin Elchico.[14] New segments also debuted, like Kulang sa Pansin, giving attention to various neglected issues, and, for the first time in a national newscast, an oil price watch informing viewers of the latest oil and LPG prices.
