After several appearances as a guest celebrity, Kim Chiu has formalized her new role on It’s Showtime as its newest co-host.

The actor and singer expressed her enthusiasm over this new journey of her career with an Instagram post made shortly after the program yesterday, 28 September. The post reads, “Look back with gratitude. Look forward with HOPE. Thank you

Kim, with Vice Ganda, Vhong Navarro, Jhong Hilario, Karylle, Amy Perez, Ryan Bang, Jugs Jugueta and Teddy Corpuz, hosted the program’s newest segment “Name It To Win It.” The hashtag #ShowtimeCHINITAnghali trended on Twitter.

Madlang people mag kita-kita po tayo araw araw. Patuloy na maghahatid ng saya at good vibes saan man kayo sa mundo! #ShowtimeChiniTanghali,” Kim added.

On 26 May, she launched the choreography and official merchandise of her viral hit “Bawal Lumabas: The Classroom song” with DJ Squammy. Proceeds went to select charities. She last appeared in the drama Love Thy Woman alongside Yam Concepcion and real life partner Xian Lim.
