Atom Araullo on GMA: "This the best place..."

LATEST UPDATE:: "Welcome home, Atom Araullo!"

During the closing part earlier of the GMA news program 24 Oras, news anchors Mel Tiangco, Mike Enriquez and Vicky Morales have officially welcomed back Atom Araullo, who has returned to the Kapuso network GMA 7 after a decade with the Kapamilya, ABS-CBN.

In his first interview as a returning Kapuso, Atom revealed the reasons why he made the big switch. "Sa larangan ng journalism, gusto ko pang matuto, at palagay ko, this is one of the best place to learn new things about journalism," he said. "Mahilig kase akong gumawa ng mga dokyu, at alam ko namang ang GMA ay napakahusay sa paggawa ng mga documentaries."

A clip of a very young Atom Araullo reporting for a past segment of 24 Oras called "Atomic Sports" was shown, to remind the Kapuso viewers that he was once part of the news program.

It was also revealed in the 24 Oras report that Atom is set to do a documentary special, and will also be added as a new host for 'I-Witness'.

: PREVIOUS UPDATE: Yes, it's official! Atom Araullo is returning to GMA 7 and a grand welcome awaits for him later today, September 21 ("Day of Protest"), via the news program 24 Oras, where he was already part of back in 2005.

A teaser video was released yesterday afternoon by GMA showing an unidentified man driving a car as he heads to a direction going to GMA Network Center.

It's obviously Atom Araullo, isn't it?

It leads us back to what I had previously blogged last week, that just 2 hours after his last live appearance as a Kapamilya on 'Umagang Kay Ganda', Atom was spotted at the GMA lobby taping for something. (READ: Atom Araullo leaves ABS-CBN for GMA)

So, apparently, he was taping for that one in the teaser, and the big reveal (ala PBB) is set for tonight on 24 Oras.

Meanwhile, Atom Araullo's taped episode for 'Red Alert' on ABS-CBN was aired just last night, on the eve of his return to GMA. A Kapamilya reporter has confirmed to me that Jeff Canoy will be replacing Atom as host of the said disaster and emergency preparedness program. -
