MANILA – Seven months since she bade goodbye to viewers of "Kris TV," Kris Aquino is ready to make her TV comeback with a one-on-one interview with no less than the President of the Philippines.

In an Instagram post on Sunday, Aquino shared that she is set for a sit-down interview with President Rodrigo Duterte, the successor of her brother Benigno Aquino III.

“I promised myself, babalik ako for a once in a lifetime, one on one interview,” she wrote in the caption.

Aquino’s interview with Duterte will air on November 11 on TV5 and PTV4.

Aquino's morning show on ABS-CBN, "Kris TV," aired its final episode on March 23 after she decided to take a break from show business because of health problems.

After being a regular fixture of ABS-CBN for almost 20 years, Aquino announced last September that she has decided to leave the network.

At that time, Aquino also revealed that she is set to do a project with APT Entertainment, Inc., which is closely associated with rival GMA-7.

APT stands for Antonio P. Tuviera, and is a subsidiary of TAPE Inc., the producer of "Eat Bulaga," among other shows.
