Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez first officially joined GMA-7 in 1998, when she became a regular host and performer of the defunct musical-variety program SOP. Since then, Regine did several hosting jobs for reality competitions such as Search For a Star (2004), Pinoy Pop Superstar (2005), and most recently, The Clash (2018).

After 20 years, Regine Velasquez has officially left GMA-7. She announced her goodbyes during her last episode in the Saturday morning talk show Sarap Diva, which aired its anniversary episode earlier today, October 13.
GMA Network’s Senior Vice President and Entertainment Group Head Lilybeth Rasonable has released an official statement about the decision of Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid to leave her home network GMA-7.
