MANILA, Philippines?It?s Vicky Morales? turn to make a wish: That viewers will learn from the stories she does for television?especially on her newest assignment, the QTV magazine show ?True Stories,? which airs Sundays (9:30 to 10 p.m.)

The host of GMA 7?s ?Wish Ko Lang? and anchor of the late-night newscast ?Saksi? is invigorated by her new show?s format. ?The stories are very interesting,? she said.

One stand-out tale is of how a lotto winner finished his P80-million jackpot. ?He gave half to his parents, who went door-to-door giving P500 each to total strangers,? Vicky related. ?He placed P100,000 bets on cockfights. He now lives in a beautiful house, but can?t pay his electic bills, so the power was cut off.?

This underlines the universal, but widely ignored values of prudence and saving for a rainy day, she said.

Dream come true

As a student in Ateneo, Vicky recalled, she cooked up a magazine show for a final paper on radio and TV production: ?The program was called ?Mga Kuwentong Buhay (Life Stories).? It?s a lot like my new show.?

Being a mom to 2-year-old twins Pipo and Leon has changed Vicky?s attitude as a broadcast journalist.

A story she did on child prostitutes who sold their bodies for a kilo of rice affected her profoundly. ?You want to save those kids from harm,? she said. ?Motherhood broadens your perspective and understanding of issues.?
