Ogie Diaz inquires from members of the Congress regarding the ALLTV plight
Ogie Diaz has a question for congressional representatives regarding ALLTV, asking if there is one brave enough to ask the network not to take a rest considering the people who will lose their jobs.
On January 5, Diaz shared a series of tweets hinting at the Congress.
“Ba’t gamit na gamit ang pangalan nina Carmi Martin at Carmina Villarroel sa mga panahon ngayon?”
“Andami palang congressmen na bumoto sa no to abs-cbn franchise ang na-Lotlot & Friends nitong 2022, no? Wala na yung pinapanginoon nila, pero andiyan pa din yung abs-cbn. Patuloy na pinapanood ng mga nag-no to franchise cong.”
“Wala ba from the congress ang tatayo para makiusap sa ALLTV na wag munang magpahinga dahil kawawa naman ang mga taong mawawalan ng trabaho?”
In 2020, Congress denied ABS-CBN’s franchise, causing the Kapamilya Network to shut down.
The hearing for the ABS-CBN franchise has ended with results of no violations of tax evasion and unfair labor practices committed by the Network. However, the franchise of the ABS-CBN was still not renewed.
In January 2022, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) announced its grant to Aliw Broadcasting Corporation the authority to use Channel 23.
NTC granted a temporary permit for Advanced Media Broadcasting System Inc., owned by Villar, to do a test broadcast on Channel 2 and operate a television broadcasting system on Channel 16.
