ABS-CBN announced It’s Showtime will part ways with the TV5 network as the noontime variety show moves to its new home—GMA Network’s GTV channel.
In an official statement released on Tuesday, the Kapamilya network started off by expressing gratitude to TV5 chairman Manny Pangilinan for bringing the show to a wider audience.
“ABS-CBN would like to extend its heartfelt appreciation to TV5 Chairman Manny Pangilinan for his support for ABS-CBN and for bringing “It’s Showtime” to a wider audience through our content partnership.”
Due to the new programming movements in TV5, It’s Showtime will no longer air on the network beginning July 1.
ABS-CBN continued that TV5 offered a 4:50 time slot for the show but “respectfully declined” as they “value the meaningful relationship we have built and nurtured with our audience in the noontime slot”.
The Kapamilya network then assured that “It’s Showtime” will still be seen on A2Z, Kapamilya Channel, and Kapamilya Online Live.
It’s Showtime will air on GMA’s GTV from Monday to Saturday at 12 noon starting July 1.
“We are also very grateful to GMA’s GTV Channel and happy to announce that
“It’s Showtime” has found another home. G na g tayo, Madlang People!,” read ABS-CBN’s statement.
“We are thankful for the loyal support our audiences have provided for “It’s Showtime and hope they continue to find joy and entertainment on the show as it seeks to find more ways to reach them,’ it added.
