Following the People Power Revolution in the fourth quarter of 1986, ABS-CBN News executives, among them the then News Manager Angelo Castro Jr., began holding meetings with higher-ups on plans to launch an all-new news program that will serve as a replacement to Balita Ngayon. On March 1, 1987, ABS-CBN announced the launch of TV Patrol during the public variety extravaganza “Ang Pagbabalik ng Bituin” (The Return of the Star) at Luneta Park, Manila.

TV Patrol premiered on March 2, 1987 at 6:00 pm. Co-anchoring the newscast were Noli de Castro, a radio announcer for DZMM, Mel Tiangco and Robert Arevalo, both final anchors of Balita Ngayon. De Castro began the pilot and subsequent episodes with his iconic opening line, “Magandang Gabi….Bayan” (“Good evening, nation”) and ended with his closing line, “Maraming Salamat, Magandang Gabi, Bayan” (“Thank you and good night, nation”) to end the newscast. De Castro’s signature line became a news magazine program which hosted by himself on the same name of a signature line. The signature line went popularized until November 19, 2004, the day Korina Sanchez first left the newscast, and again since November 8, 2010, the day of his return.

Segment anchors included Ernie Baron, who served as the newscast’s chief meteorologist and provided viewers trivia pertaining to science and history, and actress-personality Angelique Lazo (now with Veritas 846 Radyo Totoo), who first hosted Star News, an entertainment news segment.

The style of the newscast, according to De Castro, was eventually “Tabloid on the Air”. Most of its segments were: “Wanted” (later became Pulis Report), & Lingkod Bayan: Ang Puso ng TV Patrol.

However, Arevalo eventually left the newscast to host the morning show Magandang Umaga Po (previously known as Magandang Umaga). Frankie Evangelista swapped for him on June 1, 1987. Evangelista would later be notable for his TV Patrol discussion segment entitled PULSO: Pangkalahatang Ugnayan Laan Sa Opinyon (PULSE: Overall Correlation Reserved for Opinions).

With the introduction of international broadcasts in 1989 to the Pacific islands of Guam and Saipan, and later with the birth of The Filipino Channel in 1994, TV Patrol became the first Philippine newscast and program to be broadcast overseas. It still does so today, now in an expanded reach through TFC and the live web streaming on its official webpage.

In 1992, both Korina Sanchez and Ted Failon temporarily took over Tiangco’s and Evangelista’s chairs until TV Patrol underwent changes on its theme and title card the same year. Christine Bersola joined the newscast a year later to host Star News until 1996.

In 1995, Korina Sanchez, who is from Hoy Gising replaced Tiangco to TV Patrol’s anchor when the latter moved to GMA Network after being suspended from doing a TV commercial. Sanchez’s as anchor then who would be also be placed in Tiangco’s seat. The former continued anchoring Tiangco’s Lingkod Bayan, a public service segment of the newscast. Gilbert Remulla replaced Evangelista in TV Patrol and continued anchoring Evangelista’s PULSO: Pangkalahatang Ugnayan Laan Sa Opinyon (PULSE: Overall Correlation Reserved for Opinions).

In July 8, 1996, the broadcast had begun to cut its airing time to 30 minutes when Noli de Castro became the sole anchor of the newscast, becoming the first solo anchor on a newscast on the Philippine television with Henry Omaga-Diaz as his substitute anchor and also the newscast was reformatted with brand new logo (constant version changes) and theme music. Marc Logan was hired to become the news reader of trivial segments and features. In January 4, 1999, the newscast returned its airtime to one hour. On February 14, 2000, TV Patrol started its simulcast over AM radio stations DZMM (Manila), DYAB (Cebu), and DXAB (Davao) and began an online presence through the ABS-CBN News website. On February 23, 2001, De Castro left the newscast to run for Senator. Diaz would later became the interim anchor that month in preparation of De Castro’s run as independent senator.
