However, Eala eventually left the newscast in 2003 to be appointed as the commissioner of the Philippine Basketball Association. He was later replaced by Dennis Principe but left the newscast in 2006 to be acquired by NBN (now PTV), also a government-controlled network. Principe would later be replaced by Gina dela Vega-Cruz. dela Vega-Cruz left the newscast on August 3, 2007 and she was replaced by Joee Guilas, a former ABS-CBN and RPN business correspondent on August 6, 2007. Guilas had left the show to be replaced by the female tandem of Rida Reyes and Thea Gavino on August 4, 2008. Reyes soon left the newscast on September 12, 2008 to be acquired by GMA Network, leaving Gavino as the sole anchor. On November 9, 2009, Reyes was replaced by Atty. Zorah Andam until the latter was replaced by the returning Joee Guilas in late 2010.

Former Express Balita anchors Jake Morales and Cathy Eigenmann replaced Guilas on June 20, 2011. However, Jake Morales left the newscast several days later, leaving Eigenmann as its final anchor. The newscast ceased airing on August 5, 2011 to make way for the evening edition of News Team 13.
