Kim Chiu has received her first-ever award as a television host for ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show It’s Showtime.
The actress took to social media to thank the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) Star Awards for Television for the recognition.
“From guest co-host to regular host, from face shield to no face shield. From bashing to brushing it off and using it as constructive criticism, I used those words to to put me down but used them as a weapon to do better in what I am doing,” she said.
Years ago, then Star Magic’s Johnny Manahan even recommended to Kim workshops for voice modulation as hosting is not her strongest suit, she shared.
“Di ko gets before but now nahilot naman ng konti. Thank you po. Never have I ever thought na makakapag host ako.
“From the bottom of my heart, I feel grateful to ABS-CBN Family, Star Magic Family, and, of course, my SHOWTIME family. For not giving up on me and for all the trust na binibigay nila sa akin,” Kim wrote.
It was in 2020 when Kim was finally introduced as a regular host after numerous guest hosting stints in It’s Showtime.
