Boy Abunda is a Filipino talk show personality.

He was born in Borongan City, Samar. When his father died, he dropped out of school and tried odd jobs to survive. [cite news | title=Mirror, mirror . . . | date=2006-12-13 | publisher=INQ7.net | url=http://news.inq7.net/common/print.php?index=3&story_id=70853&site_id=23]

He later found a job in Metropolitan Theater as an assistant stage manager and became an assistant to Conching Sunico, the administrator of Metropolitan Theater who taught him about public relations. After two years, he put up his own PR company called Backroom, Inc.

Boy Abunda was also one of the pillars behind the early years of Probe.

While doing PR consulting jobs for GMA Network, a network executive at the time, suggested that he try television. Soon, he became one of the hosts of Startalk, an entertainment talk show. In 1999, he subsequently moved to ABS-CBN where he currently hosts four shows: The Buzz, Private Conversations, Kontrobersyal, Homeboy, and Boy & Kris.

Boy Abunda also produced an album titled "Melodic Conversations". [ [http://www.manilatimes.net/national/2008/mar/26/yehey/opinion/20080326opi6.html manilatimes.net, Procrastination awards] ]
