Angeline Quinto shares what it’ll be like without ‘ASAP’ and ABS-CBN

“Iba pa rin kasi ang TV. Halimbawa kung wala po akong sa ganitong trabaho ko, parang malulungkot ako kung walang ABS, kung nanonood lang ako lagi sa bahay, parang hindi ako sanay.”

In an interview, Angeline Quinto expressed sympathy for the employees of ABS-CBN if ever its franchise will not be renewed by President Rodrigo Duterte.

As per the singer, she’s more concerned about the staff working behind the cameras, as celebrities like her can still have chances to get some gigs online and abroad.

Angeline shared, “Wag tayong maging kampante, na ‘lagi ako andiyan’ pano kung wala na kumuha sa ‘yo mag-guest sa lahat ng shows ng ABS. Kasi minsan ganun ako mag-isip, hindi naman sa pagiging nega, parang pagiging pranka lang. Opo naman, totoo naman. Napakaraming tao. Siguro mas iniisip naming ung iba na parang ‘yun lang ung kabuhayan mo eh, pano naman rin sila?”

Life without ASAP, life without ABS-CBN

Angeline shared her plans if ever the President will not grant the renewal of ABS.

She said, “Before po ako mag Star Power, katulad ng sinasabi ko dati, nag-stop na ko sumali ng singing contest kasi akala ko talaga hindi para sakin ung singing. Sabi ko ano ba pwede kong gawin na kahit  paano na nag-aaral ako meron ako naibibigay sa nanay ko. Kasi ayoko naman tumanda na tambay lang. Gusto ko talaga mag-trabaho sa mga fastfood, kahit po yung taga-linis lang sa loob ng kusina, kasi parang feeling ko yun yung unang paraan magagawa ko para matutunan makita yung mga ginagawa ng magagaling na chef. Sa awa ng Diyos, ibinigay pa rin sakin yung pagkanta. Pero kung halimbawa (hindi matuloy ang franchise) gusto ko pa rin magluto pa rin.”

During the interview, Angeline also differentiated the influence of TV compared to the digital age as most of the Filipinos who love ABS-CBN are already the older generation.

“Iba pa rin kasi ang TV. Halimbawa kung wala po akong sa ganitong trabaho ko, parang malulungkot ako kung walang ABS, kung nanonood lang ako lagi sa bahay, parang hindi ako sanay.”



The franchise renewal of ABS-CBN is still pending in Congress. Some House leaders and even the allies of Duterte have shown support for the giant network’s franchise renewal like Deputy Speaker Vilma Santos, Rose Maria Arenas, Johnny Pimentel, Sol Aragones, and Congresswoman Joy Myra Salvador Tambunting to name a few.
