Meanwhile, it’s not only TV5 that has shown solidarity with ABS-CBN.

Kapamilya network’s archrival GMA Network has also thrown their support for the embattled ABS-CBN.

On 24 Oras’ Tuesday newscast, Kapuso broadcasters Pia Archangel, Vicky Morales and Atom Araullo wore the ABS-CBN colors.

Pia was in red, Vicky in green and Atom in blue which subtly spoke of their support for their embattled colleagues in the media industry.

The photo of the three has made the rounds on social media with netizens praising the Kapuso anchors for crossing network barriers to show their support for media freedom.

ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal bills are still pending at the House Committee on Legislative Franchises.

In his latest pronouncement, House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano said the Congress is still busy with other matters thus they cannot find time to schedule deliberations on ABS-CBN franchise renewal.

Cayetano also said the renewal is not urgent (even though ABS-CBN’s franchise is set to expire on March 30, 2020) since they can continue to operate until the end of the 18th Congress in 2022.

“Hindi [ito] ganoon ka-urgent. Bakit? Kasi hanggang March 2022, pwedeng mag-operate,” said Cayetano

“There’s a consensus that while we’re discussing the issue, walang reason na isara [ang ABS-CBN],” he added.
