Korina Sanchez wants to fully resume her radio and television career on ABS-CBN. Korina Sanchez, who is 45 years old, took a leave of absence from ABS-CBN after she got engaged and eventually married 53-year-old, former Senator Mar Roxas who lost in the Vice Presidential race in the recent polls. “Ready na akong bumalik. It now depends kung ano ang babalikan ko, kung ano ang puwede. Sabi ko ‘Citizen Mar’ naman si Mar ngayon, so I don’t see any reason why I can’t go back to my former platforms. But that is still all up to the ABS-CBN management. So, kung sensitive sila sa parang hangover from the campaign and the elections, kahit palipasin ‘yon it’s really fine with me. I will always be with them so it really all depends on what we talk about,” Korina said.

But aside from wanting to have a career back on ABS-CBN, Korina Sanchez plans on having a baby too. “Pinag-uusapan na din namin ‘yon. Kasi sabi sa akin ng OB-Gynecologist ko: ‘Bilisan mo na.’ Matagal na niyang sinasabi sa akin ‘yon. I kept myself healthy for the time when I’m really ready to have a child. That will be sooner than later.” She also said she is happy with her married life and the “emotional stability and security” it brings. “It was really the right time to settle down kasi may edad na kami pareho. Hindi na kami petty. Wala na kami masyadong pinag-aawayan. So, recommended ko ‘yan, kailangan talaga 40 and above kayo mag-asawa,” Korina opined. And she has a message to former hosting partner Kris Aquino, whose marriage is now in the rocks: “Kris, you’re a grown woman and with all of the trials and obstacles that I’ve been there with you, I saw that you were able to handle all of those with flying colors. And now that you’re even more mature, I know that you know what you’re doing.”

Korina Sanchez spoke about husband Mar Roxas’ setback during the May 2010 elections saying: “Para kaming namatayan nang matalo si Mar…. ‘Yung protest ni Mar not necessarily to overturn the results but to find out what went wrong with the system…. And I fully support Mar in this, kasi biro mo tatlong milyong boto ang hindi malaman kung saan napunta.”

Korina Sanchez continue to host her award-winning TV magazine program, “Rated K” , and she use to anchor “Bandila”, the late evening newscast of ABS-CBN before her leave.
