Nasisiyahan tayo sa patuloy niyang pagtitiwala and very happy because we have somebody who continues to inspire and set an example for all of us with us.”

    Mr. Yalong also expressed his pleasure over Soho’s contract renewal. “We’re very happy because Jessica is one of the pillars of GMA News and Public Affairs. In fact, yung programa niyang Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho continues to be the top rater,” he said.

    Soho hosts the top-rating and award-winning news magazine program Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS) on GMA. She also anchors GMA News TV’s flagship evening newscast State of the Nation with Jessica Soho (SONA) and is the host of the investigative news magazine program Brigada.
