Anthony Taberna or popularly known as “Ka Tunying” is known to be one of the staples when it comes to the world of radio and television because of his fearless and witty commentaries.
It will be remembered that Taberna spent most of his entire career with ABS-CBN before joining Manila Broadcasting Company's AM radio station DZRH in August 2020, when his erstwhile home network failed to get a new franchise.
While Taberna continued his radio duties, he was also able to put up his own presence in the world of social media having able to gain more than 622,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel and 2.2 million followers on Facebook.
But despite all these, Taberna admitted that he still missed being seen by the Filipino audience on the mainstream television.
Last September, Taberna surprised his followers when he signed a contract with Advanced Media Broadcasting System's (AMBS) ALLTV.
“Actually, hindi naman talaga ako gigil na gigil na magbalik sa telebisyon. Noong naging jobless ako for a time, talagang tinignan ko din naman yung mga opportunities sa iba, pero itong ALLTV, hindi sila nakipagusap lang. Bukod sa talk, umaksyon agad. Kumbaga nagiisip pa lang ako kung magdedesisyon ako o hindi, pero nandiyan na pinapatawag na kami sa isang meeting,” he added.
According to him, despite ALLTV being new in the business, he immediately agreed to join the network because of their vision, as well as the management's generosity.
“They gave me an offer that I couldn't refuse. Sino ba naman ako para tumanggi. Ang sabi nga nila, 'Ang tumatanggi sa grasya, lalabo ang mata.' Our management is a very generous management,” he jested.
Carving another milestone in his 30 years of broadcasting career, Taberna returns to television through ALLTV's first public service program “Kuha All!”
Premiering today, November 26 at 5 p.m., “Kuha All!” aims to be a vehicle where they can educate, entertain and serve viewers by discussing different issues and concerns captured on camera by people from all walks of life.

The show ends with Ka Tunying's no-holds-barred commentaries about the topic at hand through the segment, “Kuha Mo?”
“Kuha All's” pilot episode will feature the story of the massive e-wallet scamming that happened recently in Nueva Ecija.
