Netizens weighed in on Kuya Kim and Mang Tani
WEATHER REPORTERS- Netizens weighed in on anchor Kim “Kuya Kim” Atienza and meteorologist Nathaniel “Mang Tani” Cruz.
It was just recently when GMA Network posted an art card about a “Kuya” who will become a Kapuso.
Netizens immediately suspected that it was the ABS-CBN weather patroller. In fact, he said in a Facebook live earlier that he will be making an announcement in TV Patrol this Friday, October 1. However, he did not divulge what it’s all about.
Then, a video that appears to be Kuya Kim riding a motorcycle upon entering the GMA-7 compound went viral on social media.
Following his reported transfer to GMA-7, Kuya Kim was eventually rumored to replace Mang Tani as the resident meteorologist of “24 Oras.”
Some even compared Mang Tani to Kuya Kim.
Here’s the tweet of some netizens:
Kim Atienza or Kuya Kim whose real name is Alejandro Ilagan Atienza is currently a resident weather anchor in ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol’s segment, “Weather-Weather Lang”.
He is the eldest son of former Mayor of Manila and Buhay Party-List Representative Lito Atienza.
It was in 2008 when he started hosting Matanglawin. In 2009, he left the morning show, Umagang Kay Ganda to host the noontime program, It’s Showtime.
Nathaniel Augustin Cruz more popularly known as Mang Tani is a meteorologist who formerly served as a meteorologist for PAGASA from 1982 to 2010. He has been serving as a radio and television weather presenter for GMA News from 2012 to 2021.
Meanwhile, many are waiting for the official announcement of Kuya Kim. But on the other hand, a netizen claimed that Mang Tani might have been in Australia now alongside his family.
