ABS-CBN: We wish Kris Aquino well
Broadcast giant ABS-CBN on Monday said it respects the decision of TV host-actress Kris Aquino to leave the network, thanking her for 20 years of service to the company.
“We thank Kris for the many years that she has been a Kapamilya bringing joy, hope, and inspiration to our viewers worldwide. She will always be a Kapamilya and we wish her well in her new journey,” said Kane Errol Choa, head of ABS-CBN Corporate Communications, in a statement.
Aquino on Monday morning confirmed that she is leaving ABS-CBN, and is now working with Tony Tuviera of APT and TAPE entertainment, producer of GMA-7’s noontime show “Eat Bulaga.”
The former presidential sister said it was her friend Boy Abunda who reached out to Tuviera on her behalf. Tuviera also handles the career of GMA stars Marian Rivera and Maine Mendoza.
Aquino earlier expressed gratitude to her former network and cleared that there was no bad blood between her and her erstwhile bosses.
“This is the 1st (and) last I shall say about this chapter of my life. You deserved the true story (and) I gave you my truth, so that we may all move forward… So here’s a shoutout of THANK YOU to the Kapamilya Network ABS-CBN for all that was, and here’s a shoutout of THANK YOU to my new APT family for all that will be. And most of all my THANK YOU to all of you for allowing me to just be me,” she wrote on Instagram. YG/IDL/rga
