KC Concepcion replaces Ruffa Gutierrez on The Buzz
Singer-actress KC Concepcion, 25, signed a contract with ABS-CBN's showbiz talk show The Buzz as its new co-host, reports PEP.ph. Replacing Ruffa Gutierrez who is now part of TV5's new showbiz talk show Paparazzi, Concepcion makes her grand debut on April 11, Sunday. Coincidentally, she's also launching her second album, KC, earlier that day on ASAP XV.
The Buzz co-hosts Kris Aquino and Boy Abunda say they are very excited to have her on the show. The report confirms what Abunda has been saying from the start, that his talent, Gretchen Barretto, will not be hosting The Buzz. Barretto is focusing on her new ABS-CBN teleserye, Magkaribal.
Comedian Vice Ganda was also reportedly on the shortlist before Aquino announced that the new host is a "she," according to ABS-CBNNews.com.
