KC Montero quits radio show to play villain

By: Ruel J. Mendoza

INAMIN ng TV host and radio DJ na si KC Montero na siya ang nag-request sa GMA-7 na bigyan naman siya ng acting job dahil ito raw ang gusto niyang matutunan ngayon.

Nasubukan na rin ni KC na umarte sa TV noon sa mga GMA-7 shows na “Hiwalay Kung Hiwalay” (1998), “Umulan Man O Umaraw” (2000), “Etheria: Ang Ikalimang Kaharian Ng Encantadia” (2005) at “Confessions of a Torpe” sa TV5 naman.

“I’ve been hosting for the longest time ever since I started my career here in the Philippines. I co-hosted ‘SOP’ (Sobrang Okey Pare) tapos naging ‘Party Pilipinas.’

“I was given acting jobs on the side, pero hindi ako nag-concentrate doon. I became a VJ (video jock) for ‘MTV Asia’ for a very long time.

“I just turned 40, so I want to explore acting naman.

“Kasi, I just saw my brother Troy (Montero) acting again on TV. I said to myself, ‘Hey I can do that! I can speak better Tagalog than him!’ although medyo baluktot pa rin ng konti.

“I asked the people at GMA-7 if they would consider giving me an acting job for a change. Then they gave me a kontrabida role in ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ which is really good,” ngiti pa niya.

Bukod sa paglabas sa teleserye, host si KC ng show na “The G.O.A.T.” on the Fox Sports at may pinu-produce siyang TV show for the Discovery Channel titled “Worst Vacation Ever” kasama si Troy.

Nagtatrabaho din si KC as director of influencer marketing at Virus Digital in Makati.

Dahil sa “Alyas Robin Hood,” kinailangan niyang mag-resign sa kanyang radio show na ‘The KC Show’ on Wave 89.1.

“I had to quit one of my jobs para lang sa ‘Alyas Robin Hood.’

“My radio show is every day from 7 to 10 am. Ang taping ko dito sa teleserye is Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. And tapings are crazy and they last like 24 hours.

“So I have to quit one of my jobs para hindi ako mahirapan.

“Kaya please, GMA-7! Don’t kill me off the show agad! I gave up a job for this! Please like my acting!” natatawang pagtapos pa ni KC Montero.
