Later on, TFC answered the clamor of OFs for more information and updates from their families in the Philippines, thus emerged TFC Connect as the five-minute exclusive program now consisting of different interactive segments connecting the Filipinos worldwide, as summed up by the tagline, “Close tayo sa TFC Connect.”
In celebration of its seventh year and in line with TFC’s 20th anniversary, TFC Connect will deliver more fun treats and exciting surprises for Kapamilyas abroad and their familiesin the Philippines. Hosted by the multi-talented artist Dimples Romana, the rebirth of TFC Connect welcomes segments such as MissMo, featuring a family of an OF in the Philippines and airing every Monday and Tuesday; Kids of the Week, featuring the talents of young relatives of an OF and airing every Wednesday; Dear Dimples, a question and answer talk show discussing anything and everything under the sun and airing every Thursday; Kapamilya Treat giving a featured OF a special homecoming treat; and Kapamilyang Bisita, featuring a balikbayan who will be interviewed live on the set of TFC Connect every Friday. Social media segments such as BidaCam and Kapamilya Greetings also put the OFs in the spotlight as they can send in their photos and videos, respectively, through TFC Connect’s official Facebook fan page, featured at the end of the program.
Romana believes in the show’s mission, its content and her role to the OF audience.
She enthused: “I am more than privileged to become that indispensable companion, that shoulder which our Kapamilyas abroad can lean on or cry on whenever they miss their families in the Philippines.”
According to ABS-CBN Global Content Head Ned Legaspi, “For the past seven years, TFC Connect has been a reliable companion for OFs all around the globe and an effective instrument in bridging that gap between these OFs and their families in the Philippines. Viewers can be assured that we will continue to play the same role for more years to come, especially in showcasing the Galing ng Filipino or greatness of every Filipinos, wherever they may be.”
