A former volleyball player, Gretchen has been with ABS-CBN since 2013, first as a sports commentator then as a TV host and field reporter for many of the network’s programs.

She was part of ABS-CBN’s morning show Umagang Kay Ganda, which went off the air permanently in July 2020 following the denial by Congress to renew ABS-CBN’s franchise.
