Ces Oreña-Drilon is set to make a TV comeback. The veteran journalist, who was last seen in network TV as anchor of ABS-CBN’s Bandila, will return to the airwaves via Usapang Bilyonaryo.
To air on CNN Philippines via a blocktime agreement, the new weekly business program will be produced by Bilyonaryo, the website known for covering the top players in the world of business.
“I’m so happy for Bilyonaryo to find a home in CNN [Philippines],” Drilon said Thursday during the contract signing. “We’re going to show, hopefully, a program where people will learn a lot from. Ito po ay kuwento ng mga movers and shakers sa business and finance, mga kuwentong inyong kagigiliwan at kapupulutan ng aral.”
This wouldn’t be Drilon’s first foray in business news. Earlier in her career, she has served as co-host of ABS-CBN’s Usapang Business, alongside business news heavyweight Cathy Yang.
Drilon was among the big-name talents retrenched by ABS-CBN in 2020 after the non-renewal of its broadcast franchise. She would later join Radio Mindanao Network-DZX as host of its public service program Basta Promdi, Lodi.
Usapang Bilyonaryo will start airing on January 16, 2022.
