Teen stars Edward Barber and Ylona Garcia will be among the new VJs of MYX Philippines, it was announced on Thursday.

The pair will join the winners of the MYX VJ Search 2019 and existing presenters Ai dela Cruz and Robi Domingo as part of the ABS-CBN music channel.

Of his new hosting gig, Barber, a rap and hip-hop music fan, told MYX: "I've always been a shy person, and until now I still am. Hosting is so far out of my comfort zone but I realized it's something I want to work for."

Garcia, who is a singer and songwriter, said that she sees the VJ job as a fun challenge. "I've always admired VJs because they’re all about bringing good energy," she said. "The type of host I’d love to be is super chill and nothing but good vibes."

She added that she dreams of interviewing the likes of Billie Eilish, Christina Aguilera, The Weeknd, and Kanye West.

The other additions to the MYX VJ roster are Anton, a former radio student jock who hosts podcasts with his mom about financial tips; and Aya, an ex-beauty queen who was crowned Miss Tourism International at the Mutya ng Pilipinas 2018 pageant.
