Vice Ganda on ABS-CBN franchise issue: “wala na po kaming inaasahang prangkisa”

TV host Vice Ganda expressed his opinion in relation to those who are insisting that they are doing everything that they are doing in order to secure a franchise for ABS-CBN.

Last 2020, Congress denied the franchise application of ABS-CBN, citing several issues on the network’s franchise.

The National Telecommunications Commission granted the Manny Villar-owned Advanced Media Broadcasting System Inc. (AMBS) a “test broadcast” permit to use the coveted channel 2 spectrum.

In an episode of “It’s Showtime,” Vice asked a contestant if there is something he wanted to tell the next President. The contestant said that jobs will be given back to those who lost their job in ABS-CBN due to the denial of its franchise.

Vice answered it this way:

“Para lang po sa kaalaman ng nakararami, wala na po kaming inaasahang prangkisa dahil ‘yung dati namin prangkisa meron na pong nagmamay-ari noon. Wala na po kaming hinahabol na dating prangkisa dahil ang prangkisa namin ay may nagmamay-ari na at pagmamay-arian nila ‘yan nang ilang dekada. ‘Yung sinasabi nilang ‘Ang habol, ang gusto lang namin’ — wala na pong inapply na franchise ang,” said Vice.

“So malinaw yan ha, dun sa mga shunga-shungahan na troll, is no longer after any franchise… Wala na po kaming inaasahan, tapos na po ‘yung chapter na ‘yon.” Vice added.
