Kapamilya celebs react to Senate hearing on ABS-CBN franchise renewal


Kapamilya stars took to social media to show their support for their home network as the Senate held a hearing to tackle issues surrounding ABS-CBN’s franchise on Monday.

The hearing was attended by the media giant’s executive chairman Mark Lopez, CEO Carlo Lopez Katigbak, COO of Broadcast Socorro “Cory” Vidanes, general counsel Atty. Mario L. Bautista and other executives. 

Aside from the legislative franchise of the network, the Senate Committee on Public Services also looked into the alleged violations of the company.

During the hearing, the media company denied the allegations, with government officials clearing them of any tax deficiencies.

Katigbak also apologized to President Duterte if they have offended him after airing a political ad of the opposition in 2016. He then acknowledged their shortcomings and vowed to correct them.
