Toni Gonzaga didn't think twice before accepting the hosting spot for the all-new online variety talk show “I Feel U” after it was pitched to her by ABS-CBN Films.
During the virtual press conference of the show today, May 10, the Multimedia Star said that “I Feel U” felt like a breath of fresh air because of its "feel good" concept, especially since the world is currently facing a crisis.
“I like the concept [of the show],” she shared. “It's all about featuring good news, feel good stories. Parang maganda nga ‘yung may ganyan tayong programa para hindi puro depressing ‘yung napapanood natin lalo may pinagdadaan tayong pandemic.”
“Parang maganda naman na look at the other side na may positive pa rin, na may magaganda pa ring nangyayari kahit na may pinagdadaanang pagsubok sa ating bansa,” she added.
However, Toni admitted that she found it a challenge to host a talk show, her comeback after a successful stint on “The Buzz” way back in 2015.
“Nanibago ako sa nire-research ko kasi for almost four or five years, ‘pag nag-research ako parang ano ang issue, ano ang latest. Kasi ‘di ba sa ‘The Buzz,’ mas concern namin is ‘yung mga intriga dati,” she said.
“Ito mas nakakatuwa kasi ‘yung story ng tao, ano ‘yung ginawa nila, ano ‘yung pakiramdam na ginawa nila itong project na ‘to, [ano ‘yung] special memory nila while doing this film. It’s really their story. Hindi lang siya basta issue,” she explained.
Toni is looking forward to interviewing more people from all over the world, including her showbiz colleagues in the industry.
“Anyone na may inspiring story na masarap i-share [sana ma-interview ko sila],” she said.
“I Feel U” airs every Sunday, 6 PM and can be streamed through the digital platforms of ABS-CBN Films, ABS-CBN Global, and ABS-CBN Music.
It is also available via TFC.tv, TFC IPTV, and TFC Cable Satellite.
