“Lost in thoughts” Angel Locsin after ABS-CBN’s bid for franchise renewal was denied.




It surely has been a long journey for ABS-CBN fighting for a franchise. Weeks after weeks of congressional hearings, weeks after weeks of proving that they deserve a franchise, they still are denied to have one even though it was proven that they did not violate the law.


12 hearings, the most number of hearings about franchise renewal to date. ABS-CBN bosses gone through all these hearings with dignity and exhibited their calm and composed demeanor while defending the network. While they were able to come clean in front of the congress backed by the statements of some government agencies, the network was still denied to renew their franchise. The decision was made on Friday, July 10 and amid the call of the network’s employees and its supporters, 70 representatives opted to agree on denying the network a franchise.


More than being sad, this has broke the hearts of the network’s employees and supporters. Angel Locsin who showed her all out support to her home network and went to the caravan held during the votation day shared series of photos of employees who have been devastated upon hearing the news, herself included. On her caption she wrote “Lost in thoughts.”


While these people grieve, it is really disheartening that some are celebrating their misfortune. We may have different stand on issues like this and we can always agree to disagree but celebrating the misfortune of others will always be inhumane.


ABS-CBN might just be another network in the sea of media outlets out there for some, but for their employees, it is not just a network, it is their bread and butter, it represents their dreams.


We stand with ABS-CBN and its employees. We know that one day, we’ll get to see Kapamilya network fly high on free TV once again.
