Last night, your blogger – along with Gerry Diaz of Aces & Queens and MU1999 1st Runner-Up Miriam Quiambao (via Skype) – guested on the CNN Philippines program “On the Record” with host Pia Hontiveros-Pagkalinawan. The topic was Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and the seriously rumored takeover of the Miss Universe Philippines franchise by the group of Gov. Chavit Singson.
Check out the video of Miss World Philippines 2018 Katarina Rodriguez’ interview guesting on CNN Philippines’ New Day.
I am sharing with you now the latest TV interview of Miss Universe Philippines 2018 Catriona Gray when she guested on the program “Leading Women” with host Angel Jacob. Check out her new insights as the country’s representative to Miss Universe 2018.
Watch now and share your thoughts afterwards, dear readers.
With host Andrei Felix
Bb. Pilipinas Globe 2018 Michele Gumabao had her solo interview on CNN Philippines’ Sports Desk as the sportswoman turned beauty queen.
Watch her interview guesting with host Andrei Felix now.
While 2017 was such a fulfilling year for pageant coverages at normannorman.com, Joy, Joseph and I are looking forward to a really busy 2018 starting this January with the Bb. Pilipinas 2018 submission of application deadline and screenings, the mission of Katarina Rodriguez in Hurghada, Egypt for Miss Intercontinental 2018, the mock pageants of both Aces & Queens and Kagandahang Flores and the announcement of Official Binibinis who will vie for the six titles at stake come March 18 at the Araneta Coliseum. This month, I will also personally cover the Kuyamis Festival in Cagayan de Oro City and the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo with the crowning of their respective Queens.
The 50th Year of Mutya ng Pilipinas will also be worth looking forward to, as the organizers will have fifty (50) Official Candidates for the very first time.
But that’s getting far ahead of the year ahead. Here is a 30-second slideshow of what is in store for readers from January-June, 2018.
And in closing, allow me to share with you the specific segment of my TV interview guesting on CNN Philippines’ Rewind: 2017 Year-Ender Report with hosts Pinky Webb and Ruth Cabal plus the added bonus of having my favorite James Deakin in the panel.
This appearance completes a memorable 2017 that saw me on ABS-CBN’s Umagang Kay Ganda (twice) and TV Patrol, GMA Network’s 24 Oras and on CNN Philippines’s The Source and On the Record. 😊
Happy New Year to all!
I am truly honored to have been invited by CNN Philippines to be part of their 2017 Year-Ender Special where the news channel’s hosts – Pinky Webb, James Deakin and Ruth Cabal – navigated the year that was, with topics tanging from the Marawi City Crisis, EJK, ASEAN Summit and Uber/Grab issues all the way to Philippine Pageantry where your blogger served as guest panelist.
Please indulge me in this post because I just want to share the thrill of being part of this media special. After being awarded one of the Philippine Empowered Men and Women of 2017, two consecutive guestings on ABS-CBN’s Umagang Kay Ganda, a spot on CNN Philippines’ The Source with Pia Hontiveros, the taping earlier in the day brings the year to a glorious close personally.
Please watch #Rewind2017 – the CNN Philippines Year-Ender Special on December 30.
