Wazzup Pilipinas!

After years of sleepless nights of "Walang Tulugan", the Master Showman finally gets his well-deserved "rest".

"In a statement sent to GMA News Online, John Nite said that German Moreno, who is popularly known as Kuya Germs died at 3:20 a.m. due to cardiac arrest, one year after suffering from a stroke.
Nite is Moreno's nephew and co-host in GMA's "Walang Tulugan with the Master Showman."

"He passed on in the company of his family and friends. He lived a full life, touched so many hearts through the years, and helped make dreams come true for most of the biggest stars in the Philippine entertainment industry," he said. "We are deeply saddened by his passing but we are comforted by the thought that his legacy will live on."

The late-night host of Walang Tulugan was confined at St. Lukes Hospital in Quezon City after suffering a stroke, and entered a coma afterwards.

Born on October 4, 1943, Kuya Germs had humble beginnings as he started as a utility worker at the once popular Clover Theater in Manila in the 1950s. He became a stage actor and later a film star. He earned his big break in television during the late ’70s, as host of the Sunday noontime show, GMA Supershow. He soon became host and producer of That’s Entertainment, which launched many local performers into superstardom.

Moreno was known as a star builder in his youth oriented show in the 1980s, That's Entertainment, that included a roster of popular artists including Lea Salonga, Manilyn Reynes, Gladys Reyes, Judy Ann Santos, Janno Gibbs, Billy Crawford, Donna Cruz, Ramon Christopher, and Lotlot de Leon.

He had then been hosting Walang Tulugan With The Master Showman, which had been on the air for 18 years.

He also initiated the "Walk of Fame" in Eastwood, Quezon City, whch is the local counterpart of the "Walk of Fame" in Hollywood, USA to recognize artists, broadcasters, singers and others who made significant contributions to the showbiz industry.

In 2013, Kuya Germs celebrated his 50th year in the showbiz industry.

Rest in peace, Kuya Germs. Thank you for the decades of showtime and pure entertainment.
