TV Patrol Northern Mindanao is the local news network broadcast of the ABS-CBN Regional Network Group in Cagayan de Oro City. It has been the most watched news program in Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental. The newscast is a tabloid-style format (inspired from United States local television newscasts) and the program delivers news headlines about current events in Northern Mindanao (Region X) and some parts of Zamboanga Peninsula (Region IX).
It is aired live daily from the ABS-CBN Cagayan de Oro Newscenter at 5:15 PM, from Monday to Friday, simulcast also on Channel 2 in Bukidnon, Channel 7 in Ozamiz City, Channel 4 in Iligan City, Channel 9 in Pagadian City and Channel 42 in Dipolog City. It is also shown abroad through ABS-CBN Now and The Filipino Channel, and is also simulcast on radio via DXEC MOR 91.9 Cagayan de Oro.
TV Patrol Northern Mindanao maintains a 24-hour shift of reporters, cameramen and drivers with coverage over the provinces of Misamis Oriental, Misamis Occidental, Lanao del Norte, Lanao del Sur, Bukidnon, Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, Zamboanga Sibugay, Camiguin, Southern Bohol as well as in Dipolog City and Pagadian City.
The newscast was first broadcast on May 1, 1995 as TV Patrol Cagayan De Oro. It was the first program that replaced Davao City-produced TV Patrol Mindanao (now TV Patrol Southern Mindanao) as its main regional newscast. It has since covered stories ranging from natural disasters, man-made disasters, religious conflicts, tribal conflicts, political controversies, social issues and crime stories in Region X.
Notably, TV Patrol Northern Mindanao is the first regional TV Patrol newscast to use the new TV Patrol visual and audio packages which were introduced on June 30, 2010 for the national newscast. The localized version for Northern Mindanao was introduced on August 9, 2010.
