Boy Abunda

Eugenio "Boy" Abunda, Jr. is a Filipino talk show personality who dubbed himself as "The King of Talk" in Philippine Showbiz.

He was born in Borongan City, Eastern Samar. When his father (Eugenio Abunda, Sr.) died, he dropped out of school and tried odd jobs to survive.

He later found a job in Metropolitan Theater as an assistant stage manager and became an assistant to Conching Sunico, the administrator of Metropolitan Theater who taught him about public relations. After two years, he put up his own PR company called Backroom, Inc.

Boy Abunda was also one of the pillars behind the early years of Probe.

While doing PR consulting jobs for GMA Network, a network executive at the time, suggested that he try television. Soon, he became one of the hosts of RSVP, a late night variety show co-hosted by Dawn Zulueta, and subsequently, Startalk, an entertainment talk show. In 1999, he subsequently moved to ABS-CBN where he currently hosts three shows: The Buzz, Private Conversations, and Boy & Kris.

Boy Abunda also produced an album titled "Melodic Conversations".


Boy Abunda is happily committed to his partner of twenty-four years, Bong Quintana, a former Philippine Airline steward employee.

Abunda was involved in a spat between Dr. Vicki Belo and Dr. Manny Calayan. Dr. Belo claimed that if you wanted to look like Piolo Pascual or Dingdong Dantes, you should go to Belo Medical Group and if you wanted to look like Boy Abunda, you should go to Calayan Surgi-Center.
