Biography

Mel Tiangco was born as Carmela Corro Tiangco on August 10, 1955, in Pilar, Bataan to Arsenio Tiangco, Sr. and Florencia Corro.

After graduating from De La Salle University, she became one of the leading presenters in Philippine television journal programs. She first gained fame by being one of the original anchors of ABS-CBN's flagship newscast TV Patrol from 1987 to 1995. She then transferred to GMA Network and became the anchor of Saksi from 1996 to 1999 and Frontpage: Ulat ni Mel Tiangco from 1999 to 2004. She was also a co-host for talk show Mel & Jay with fellow journalist Jay Sonza, Mel & Joey with comedian-TV host-writer Joey de Leon, and public affairs show Sanib Puwersa with Arnold Clavio.[2] She also hosted Powerhouse from 2011 to 2013 on GMA News TV. Currently, Tiangco co-anchors GMA's flagship newscast, 24 Oras and hosts the weekly drama anthology Magpakailanman.

She is involved in philanthropic work at the GMA Kapuso Foundation, the network's socio-civic arm. Tiangco served as the foundation's Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer until April 2016.

She is the mother of Wency Cornejo, a musician best known as the lead vocalist of Philippine rock band AfterImage (active in the 1990s). Her three other children[3] are Ana Teresa, Melanie and Jose Miguel.

Suspension incident

Tiangco transferred to GMA Network after she was suspended for three years without pay from her former network ABS-CBN over her appearance in a Tide advertisement allegedly without her former network's knowledge. The move was in compliance to an internal company rule which prohibits news personalities from endorsing brands. According to pep.ph, this is universally enforced in all print and broadcast meant to avoid any suspicions of bias or favoritism.[4]

A year later ABS-CBN filed a lawsuit against Tiangco, Jay Sonza, and GMA Network at Quezon City Regional Trial Court, but on June 26, 1998, the court declared the respondents' cancellation of contracts to their former network as valid and that GMA Network had no hand over their decision to transfer. ABS-CBN brought the case to the Court of Appeals, which upheld the lower court's decision on August 6, 2003. According to GMA Network, the network's act of suspension to Tiangco without solid proof and legal basis is a grave breach of contract, and supports her termination of the contract. ABS-CBN later took it to the Supreme Court, which then junked their appeal in 2011 "for failure to sufficiently show any reversible error in the decision of the Court of Appeals." The Supreme Court decision added: "There was no evidence that GMA had enticed Mel and Jay to break away from ABS-CBN because when the two transferred to GMA, they have already rescinded their agreements with ABS-CBN."[4]

Despite the issue, Tiangco garnered support from the public. In the anniversary press conference for her show Magpakailanman on February 18, 2013, she said that she has already forgiven her former network. While she likened her experience in her former network similar to a cockroach being trampled on, she stated that she has already moved on from the suspension incident as she felt "vindicated" by her accomplishments in her current network and her program's success in the Philippine television.[4]

On June 3, 2022, the Supreme Court publicly released its decision dated December 6, 2021, dismissing Tiangco's appeal on the illegal dismissal and illegal suspension case against ABS-CBN.[5]
