Venus Raj Invades Barangays in ‘Umagang Kay Ganda’

It’s only been days since Miss Universe 2010 4th runner up Venus Raj started hosting ABS-CBN’s morning show “Umagang Kay Ganda” but it seems that the beauty queen has already gotten the hang of her new job.

“I was so excited during my first day that I had to sleep early so that I would also wake up early. I’m used to it now. I sleep around 8 pm or 9 pm and wake up at around 3 am,” said Venus.

Venus is tasked to deliver daily showbiz news in the said morning show and just recently she already started going to barangays for the segment “Barangay Bida” where they will feature model communities.

“We will show why a certain barangay is considered a ‘bida’ be it in relation to the environment or the way they run things in their community. We will get barangays that have made a mark or achieved something in order to inspire other barangays,” Venus explained.

Meanwhile, new host Iya Villania is also as excited as Venus especially after learning that she will be hosting segments such as “Youth Tube,” where the talked videos online will be showcased.

“That’s why is easier for me to adjust because I can just be myself. I am personally into online videos, gadgets, and technology so I feel comfortable with the segments given to me. It’s also a plus that I am working with people who I really look up to like Ms. Donita Rose who served as my inspiration why I pursued being a VJ,” shared Iya.

The sexy half-Aussie host-actress also added that she didn’t think twice when hosting UKG was offered to her.

“I know that I will learn a lot from this show, being updated with the news and all. Besides, I am a morning person so waking up very early wouldn’t be a problem for me so I gave it a go,” she said.

Aside from hosting Studio 23’s “Us Girls,” and serving as a VJ for music channel MYX, Iya can also be seen weeknights in the hottest series on primetime, “Martha Cecilia’s Kristine.”

If Iya can juggle both hosting and acting, Venus is also willing to venture into the latter. The Bicolana beauty earlier said she wants to be paired with Coco Martin and the ultimate heartthrob Piolo Pascual.

Even though Piolo already admitted that he and KC Concepcion are together, Venus still admires the actor.

“I am happy for them and my admiration for Piolo will of course continue. It will not fade just because he already has a girlfriend. Besides, my crush on him wouldn’t reach the point that I would actually want to be married to him (laughs),” she cleared.

If ever Coco guests on UKG, is Venus ready for him? “Of course! I am excited to meet Coco,” she said giggling.

UKG is definitely bigger and better this time around with new segments you will surely watch out for every morning.

Pinky Webb brings you videos from concerned citizens in “Webb Report.”

Donita Rose, on the other hand, will teach young moms practical art works and crafts they can do right at their very homes in “Do It Youself.”

Meanwhile, Winnie Cordero and Alex Santos guide consumers and parents in the Consumer, Parenting, and Relationship segment.

In 2010, UKG received recognitions from several prestigious award giving bodies. It won Best Morning Show and Best Morning Show Hosts in the 24th PMPC Star Awards and 8th Gawad Tanglaw. It bagged the Best Morning Show in the UP Gandingan and won an Anak TV Seal for Most Admired Program.

Join Anthony Taberna, Pinky Webb, Alex Santos, Winnie Cordero, Phoemela Barranda, Andrei Felix, Iya Villania, and Venus Raj in the new “Umagang Kay Ganda,” 5:30 AM, Mondays to Fridays on ABS-CBN.

  16. pasingit uli!!

    pansin ko lang, ang gaganda ng mga shows ng GMA sa afternoon block,lahat ang gagaling.simula sa ALAKDANA, na ang galing galing ni jean at lead star na si LOUISE, ang galing nyang umarte.susunod na sa lunes ang NITA NEGRITA na may posibilidad na mag click din dahil subok na ang tambalang BARBIE at JOHSUA na parehong magaling sa pagarte.tapos ay ang toprater na KOREANA, na simula pa noong una ay panalo na sa rating both agb at kantar dahil ang ganda ng istorya at magagaling ang mga artista.kay ka manoy eddie,kay eula,rocco,angelu ,ang walang kupas na si lotlot na ang galing galing at maging kay saab.HIGIT SA LAHAT KAY KRIS BERNAL na habang tumatagal ay lalong humuhusay sa pagarte.superb performances to all the casts of KOREANA.congrats KOREANA, habang papalapit ng papalapit ang pagtatapos ay lalong kaabang abang!!at ang pinakahuli ay ang TEMPTATION OF WIFE na hindi maikakaila na mega mega hit ito dahil tinatalo pa nito ang ibang primetime shows.congrats sa GMA dahil magaling silang pumili ng mga korean shows na karamihan ay click sa manonood!!pansin ko nga , mas maganda pa ang lineup ng panghapong programa ng GMA kaysa sa panggabi dahil lahat magagaling at kaabang abang kaya nga ba TAOB lahat ang katapat!!

  17. pasingit lang dahil walang article para sa GMA!!

    dapat talaga ganito ang lineup ng GMA TELEBABAD

    BANTATAY
    24 ORAS/dapat tama lang sa oras at walang OT
    DWARFINA
    BAKER KING
    I HEART YOU PARE
    at dapat na pinakahuli ang machete na pang adult e nasa early timeslot.tama lang na ang katapat nya ay pang adult din.at isa sa dahilan kung bakit lagapak ang rating ng machete dahil sa jinx na si BELA PADILLA na kasasampa lang sa GMA ay bida kaagad at feeling sikat na wala pa namang napapatunayan.sana walang palakasan sa GMA dahil dito nagkakaroon ng pagkakataon ang abs na makalayo sa gma.tingnan nyo ang taas taas ng mara clara compare sa machete dahil marami talaga ang ayaw kay BELA at isa pa walang hatak sa televiewers ang mga leading stars.sana lang mabasa ito ng gma management, ILAGAY NA PANGHULI ANG MACHETE DAHIL ITO ANG NAKAKASIRA SA GMA TELEBABAD!!!!
