Pia Guanio leaves "24 Oras" after 11 years

Pia Guanio has left GMA-7's evening news, "24 Oras," where she hosted the entertainment news segment "Chika Minute" for eleven years.

On Friday morning, Pia posted a series of messages on Twitter, saying she would be appearing on the news program for the last time that night.

"So after 11 years of doing Chika Minute on @24OrasGMA, I've decided to say good bye tonight," she posted.

According to the TV host, she's quitting the program to have more time with her family.

"I'm doing this to be able to spend more time with Steeve and especially Scarlet," she added.

Pia, however, will still be seen in the noontime show "Eat Bulaga!" as well as on GMA News TV's "Homebase."

GMA-7, meanwhile, released a statement regarding Pia's leaving "24 Oras."

After 11 years at the forefront of showbiz news, Pia Guanio has decided to say goodbye to Chika Minute on 24 Oras.

Pia decided to let go of her anchoring duties on 24 Oras to prioritize family life and raising her daughter Scarlet with her husband Steve Mago.

GMA Network understands the importance of family and is fully behind Pia’s decision to move forward.

Pia has been with 24 Oras since it launched in 2004, carving a niche in entertainment news with her fun and classy news delivery.

With Pia's help, Chika Minute has etched itself in the consciousness of Pinoy pop culture, with the trademark voice of Pia signalling the start of showbiz news.

Aside from showbiz news, Pia has also advocated for healthy living and animal rights and produced stories and news features on these.

24 Oras is grateful for Pia’s contributions to make it the leading and most credible newscast in the country today.
