He’s ready to show that he’s up to the task.
Elmo Magalona is known for acting and performing, but hosting a show isn’t something he’s done much of. As one of the newest hosts on PIE Channel, he’s also excited to show this new side of himself.
“Sanay nga ang mga KatroPIE na nakikita ako as an actor and performer. This is actually my first venture as a host, kaya sa lahat dito feeling ko ako yung pinaka-inexperienced. Pero I wanted to do this talaga para mapakita ko yung different side ko. So far, ang ganda ng experience ko dito. May mga nakakausap akong ibang creative minds when it comes to music,” says Elmo.
Elmo co-hosts PIE Night Long’s new segment, PNL Sessions. It’s akin to a music festival, only virtual. This segment features performances from the jocks and various musical guests, which is why Elmo is also looking forward to learning from and working with local artists.
“This is the first time na I get to be on the other side of the spectrum. This time, I’m asking our musical guests how they work on their craft.”
PIE Channel is not like an average movie or TV series. It’s the country’s first multiscreen, real-time interactive TV channel. Being a PIE jock gave Elmo a new way to engage with viewers.
“Since it’s interactive, nakakausap namin agad ang ating mga KatroPIE. Nagugustuhan ko yung pwedeng mag-react ang ating mga viewers sa naririnig nilang songs.”
Elmo on working with Vivoree
This is the first time Elmo has worked with Vivoree, his Pie Night Long co-host. He happily shared how easily bonded on and off-screen.
“Masaya ako na I got to work with Vivoree kasi before, nakasama ko siya sa acting workshops. For me naman, very supportive yung fans ko. Nowadays naman, they are very welcoming toward any partner na nakakasama ko. Since we both love music ni Vivoree, we work well with each other on PNL Sessions,” says Elmo.
You can catch Elmo and Vivoree on Pie Night Long every Sunday from 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM.
