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 and Camiguin.
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 was initially anchored by Katherine "Kathy" Uba-Bermudez, together with Aljo Trinidad, Rommel Gantalao, Carlo Lomibao, Evangeline Lacambra, Priscilla Maniquiz, Mike Banos, Celine Hermenegildo and Jobelle Fernandez as its first set of reporters. 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.
In 1996, Trinidad left the program to anchor another regional newscast, TV Patrol North Central Luzon (formerly TV Patrol Dagupan). In 1997, Lomibao & Hermenegildo were transferred to TV Patrol Socsksargen. Ana Lee Lugod, Katrina Louise Neri and Mylene Pabayo were hired as new reporters for the newscast and Edward Cayetano became co-anchor of Bermudez. In 1999, Railyn Joy Tabanao joined the anchor's chair together with Bermudez & Cayetano.
In October 6, 1997, TV Patrol Iligan was launched. It was the first local news program in the Iligan City area with Priza Cinco, Rey Paraguya, Gil Luzon and Ronnie Enderes as its first set of anchors-reporters together with Vhanizza Cabantac, Eric Guerrero, Angelica Joy Gallentes and Raina Yu.
Former Davao-based personality PJ Dela Peña was the last anchor of the newscast before it got cancelled in 2006. Despite the cancellation, ABS-CBN Channel 4 Iligan airs an hourly news bulletin with Enderes and Roxanne Arevalo.
In May 2007, PJ Dela Peña together with his fellow Iligan personalities joined in the Cagayan De Oro newscast to integrate two editions into TV Patrol Northern Mindanao.
