Veteran sports anchor and analyst Bill Velasco is no stranger to the explosive action on and off the court. This Kapamilya anchor has been a reporter for ABS-CBN Sports for several years, covering the nail-biting hard court games in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Considered as an expert when it comes to college basketball-related news, he moved from his NCAA beat to a wider collegiate audience: the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP). While sports fans can easily recognize Bill Velasco on television, his journalistic career isn’t only limited on-screen. He has also penned countless sports columns for “The Philippine Star,” namely “Game Na!” and “The Game of My Life” (the latter which he continues to write for at present), providing his two cents not just on basketball per se, but on the local athletics scene as a whole. You can see more of Bill Velasco—and hear his updates on what’s happening in the world of sports—in the ABS-CBN sports program “Hardball.” More than just a sports-oriented news show, “Hardball” combines interesting commentaries on what’s happening in the local sports scene through engaging banters between Kapamilya anchor Bill Velasco, who is joined by his equally esteemed co-hosts, Boyet Sison and Boom Gonzalez.
