MANILA—There have been speculations that Sarah Geronimo is moving to the TV5 to host a new show “PoPinoy.”

The PoPinoy is TV5 search for the “biggest Pop Boyband” and this will start in April 2021.
Sarah is the brand ambassador of a cellular service company which is the major sponsor of “PoPinoy” hence, her photo for the teaser ad of the Kapatid network’s new program.
The Pop Princess has an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN and she can be viewed on TV5 only because of ASAP, Kapamilya’s musical-variety show which is also being shown on TV5 every Sunday through its sister company, the streaming service KTX.ph, and on VivaMax “Tala,” Sarah’s one-night only and exclusive online film concert on March 27, 2021.

The host of the said talent search show will be Paolo Ballesteros and Maine Mendoza.
“PoPinoy” will be Maine’s first show on TV5. There is no conflict with GMA Network Inc. since she is the talent of Triple A, the talent management company of APT Entertainment.
