Following the launch of ABS-CBN TV-10 Batangas as an originating station is the launch of the regional edition of News Patrol with ABS-CBN Naga's Sarita Kare as its anchor together with Joan Panopio and Tina Ganzon as reporters. The news advisory is aired several times from Monday to Friday.

Kare era

TV Patrol Southern Tagalog began on February 9, 2009, which led to the newscast to expand its coverage to the entire Southern Tagalog regions. On May of that year, the newscast covered events on Pahiyas Festival after ABS-CBN Batangas took over the coverage from ABS-CBN Naga. On August 31, the newscast has been relaunched with Alex Santos as its guest anchor. On the second half of 2010, Edison Reyes joins Kare as her co-anchor, after few months, Reyes left and moved to TV5 as its national TV and radio reporter. Kare left the program in 2013 and Reyes would later resigned to another network as he ventured into politics, and elected as councilor in Majayjay, Laguna on the 2016 elections.

Hernandez era

TV Patrol Southern Tagalog was later anchored by experienced Batangas City news anchor Paul Hernandez and Joan Panopio respectively replacing Kare. The program is backed by a formidable team of ABS-CBN reporters. Panopio left the program and returned to field reporting leaving Hernandez as the sole anchor. In 2014, TV Patrol Southern Tagalog moved its studio from the Philam Life Building to its new home at Seasons (Lipa Building in Tambo, Lipa City). Paul Hernandez was then joined by Aya Parole in 2015.

Parole era

Paul Hernandez left the newscast leaving Aya Parole as its solo anchor.

Balita era

Val Balita became its new anchor when Aya Parole left the newscast. It introduces its new reporters Fay Virrey, Paulo Ferrer and Mariz Laksamana. One of its original correspondent Ernie Manio joined the Manila news team, as well.

On January 9, 2017, TV Patrol Southern Tagalog updated its opening billboard, title card and graphics similar to the main national newscast which took effect 6 months earlier opposite TV Patrol Southern Mindanao.
