“Mula po sa pambansang morning show ng Pilipinas,” Ka Tunying expressed, then the whole UKG team happily shouted, “Happy anniversary, Unang Hirit!”

In an Instagram post, UH host Arnold Clavio expressed gratitude to their rival morning show; saying, “Sa mga bumubuo po ng UKG, maraming salamat po sa naging pagbati po ninyo sa amin sa Unang Hirit.”

UH has been airing every weekday morning since 1999. GMA Network Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L. Gozon earlier underscored the contribution of the longest-running morning show to Philippine TV.

“Institusyon na sila sa Unang Hirit kaya tayo talaga ay nagagalak na hanggang ngayon at sa mga dadating pang taon ay mananatili sila [mga host] sa Unang Hirit,” he said; congratulating the program on its milestone. “Dalawampung taon na ang UH sa atin, I wish them another 20 successful years.”

Just love! Here is UKG’s anniversary greeting to UH:
