MANILA, Philippines – Veteran broadcast journalist "Kabayan" Noli de Castro will appear on comedy talk show “Gandang Gabi Vice” on Sunday.

The news was confirmed to ABS-CBN News by the executive producer of the show.

Before “Gandang Gabi Vice” was launched last May, host Vice Ganda already expressed that it is his dream to interview the former Vice President.

"Kasi dream ko ding makaharap siya at ma-interview, yung parang 'Kabayan meets Kabayo,'" Vice Ganda said in jest.

The TV host even agreed to the idea that the title of his show was probably inspired by de Castro’s defunct news program, “Magandang Gabi Bayan.”

De Castro served as Vice President of the Philippines under former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, who is now a Pampanga lawmaker.

He and Korina Sanchez returned to ABS-CBN last year to anchor its primetime newscast, "TV Patrol."
