MANILA--In a time where athletes are more than welcome and even urged to speak up, college volleyball stars Ponggay Gaston, Michelle Cobb, Eya Laure, and Rosie Rosier get their turn to bare their soul through their new show.

Entitled "TBH", which is short for "to be honest", the four young volleybelles get to talk about what is happening right now.

"This is something new to us," Cobb, La Salle's ace setter, said in TBH's online press launch on Friday.

This is indeed an uncharted territory for Cobb and her fellow UAAP volleyball hotshots because this will be their first hosting gig ever, all the more that this is also their first time teaming up albeit in a digital format for now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Sobrang bago ito kasi hindi naman kadalasan nakikita kaming magkasama lalo na kaming apat," added Laure, UST's rising star.

Gaston, one of Ateneo's leaders, then said, "This is something that allowed us to step out of our comfort zone."

"It's really about speaking from our heart and speaking for the people like student athletes and our fellow Filipinas and future generations," quipped Rosier, UP's team captain.

While Gaston, Cobb, Laure, and Rosier will lead the way in this show, they said that they may invite guests to share their own thoughts.

In fact, they hinted that they could have guests in their first few episodes.

"Abangan niyo na lang," they said.

TBH premieres on July 23 on Liga Channel.
