Bernadette Sembrano posts appreciation for Kim Atienza after ABS-CBN departure

For Bernadette Sembrano, people who leave ABS-CBN will still be considered as a Kapamilya.

This comes after TV Patrol weather anchor Kim Atienza bade farewell to the show and the network.

Atienza, known as Kuya Kim to viewers, announced his departure from ABS-CBN on the show last Friday, October 1.

Once a Kapamilya, always a Kapamilya

Bernadette made an appreciation post for Kuya Kim on Instagram last Saturday, October 2.

Accompanied by a photo of her with Kuya Kim, the newscaster wrote,

“[I] will miss Kuya Kim and we sincerely wish him well. But this is also an appreciation post on
why Kapamilya is Kapamilya,”

Moreover, she said how if someone from ABS-CBN decides to leave, it does not mean they are no longer family.

“Hindi naman nawawala ang pagiging pamilya. May nalulungkot, may nahihirapan , may mangungulila, [at] may sasalo sa naiwang responsibilidad. Pero Bukal ang panalangin na sana’y magtagumpay ang Kapamilyang umaalis,”

For this reason, Bernadette expressed how proud of a Kapamilya she is as they behave like a true Filipino family.

In addition, she added how people who were forced to leave the network, as well as people who choose to do so, are still family.

“Kapamilya pa rin ang 11,000 na napilitang umalis. Kapamilya pa rin ang mga pinipiling umalis. Pamilya pa rin. Always,”

Bernadette concluded her post by thanking their solid Kapamilya viewers, as well as expressing love to Kuya Kim.

“And salamat po sa INYO Kapamilya. I know kahit mahirap mapanood ngayon. I know our kapamilya viewers will remain, and we will continue to do our best for you. Salamat po!
Love you, [Kuya Kim].”

A long-time Kapamilya host

Kuya Kim served as a host for various television shows in ABS-CBN for 17 years.

He appeared in the morning talk show Umagang Kay Ganda, the noontime variety show It’s Showtime, and the educational show Matanglawin, among others.

Moreover, he replaced Ernie Baron as TV Patrol’s resident weather anchor after his death in 2006.

After departing ABS-CBN, Kuya Kim said no confirmation regarding his future plans.

However, fans speculated how the television host would move to the GMA Network.

Lastly, we wish Kuya Kim the best of luck in his future endeavors!
