Rev is ABS-CBN News Channel or ANC’s very first foray into a motoring program. It was hatched by a small group of very passionate car aficionados from within the network, who felt the need to service a niche market of enthusiasts and at the same time pique the interest of new audience groups who have yet to discover their knack for the motoring industry.
Main host Paolo Abrera says that Rev is similar to more popular motoring programs from the U.S. and the U.K. in the sense that it will highlight the great passion for automobiles. “Every week we will give you a review of a vehicle, whether it’s sports car, a utility car or a 4×4.”
“We’ll also be delving into the world of motorcycles. I myself am an avid motorcyclist and I think motorcycling has never been as big as it has been in the Philippines; so now is the perfect time to service that interest,” adds Paolo.
The show also features honest vehicle reviews by Paolo and a different guest celebrity every week. “It’s like our own version of Carpool Karaoke, but with more talking about the car’s performance.”
Also joining the program are respected names in the auto circuit. Multi-awarded race car driver JP Tuason will give tips on how to enhance driving skills in a segment called “The Right Turn,” while musician and car lover Manskee Nasciento shares his know-how in proper care of vehicles in “Keep It Clean.”
A special co-host will also be revealed soon to provide expert advice on the best modifications that will give a vehicle a royal spin and make the car truly one-of-a-kind.
