Having Joey de Leon as guest in her daily talk show “Kris TV” is a “momentous event” for Kris Aquino.  So she surprised him with a VTR greeting from President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III himself.

“Pareng Joey de Leon, maraming salamat sa iyong pagtitiwala at pakikiisa sa ating tuwid na daan mula pa noong kampanya hanggang sa kasalukuyan. Talaga namang nakakabilib ang iyong tagumpay sa loob ng mahigit tatlong dekada mula sa iyong mga programang nagbibigay aliw sa ating mga kababayan hanggang sa iyong adhikain para tulungan ang mga nangangailangan,” PNoy said.

The President also thanked Joey for his contribution to Agap Silid Pangarap at Grace Park Elementary School in Caloocan City, where he supported the Aklat Gabay Aruga Tungo sa Pag-angat at Pag-asa (AGAPP Foundation), led by PNoy’s sister Pinky Abellada.

Joey thanked PNoy and gave Kris a copy of  “Eat Bulaga’s” coffee table book "Ang Unang Tatlong Dekada,” which chronicles the 30 years the noontime show has been on air.

Kris told Joey that she wants to thank him for helping her family and the government as well.

"First time nag-VTR dito, never niya akong ginreet eh. Nag-anniversary ako ng 15 years eh, wala, pero para sa iyo (meron). I told him na 'Noy, we never got the chance to thank him for the campaign until now,'" Kris said.

Before “Eat Bulaga” transferred to ABS-CBN in 1989 from RPN 9, Joey was as an ABS-CBN disc jockey in 1968. He also did several ABS-CBN programs like “The Sharon Cuneta Show.”
