ABS-CBN workers react to NTC’s order to stop Philippines’ largest network

Kapamilya celebrities sympathized with their home network.

The National Telecommunications Commission issued a Cease-and-Desist order against ABS-CBN to stop operating both its television and radio programs due to its expired franchise.

ABS-CBN workers have reacted on the issue and refused to accept the decision made by the NTC, an agency under President Rodrigo Duterte’s government, which is only responsible for the supervision, and control over all telecommunications services in the country and does not decide whether or not a broadcasting network should continue to operate.

Here are the reactions of ABS-CBN workers to cease-and-desist order of NTC:

Angel Locsin did not hesitate to air her opinion and suggest the NTC reconsider as many Filipinos will lose their jobs, especially during these trying times when people are fighting the pandemic COVID-19 disease as well as dealing with financial issues.

Angel said: “Para sa kapwa. Sa panahon na kailangan ng hanap buhay ng mga tao. Let’s be considerate and ask ourselves kung makakatulong ba ang mga desisyon natin sa lalo na sa panahong ito.

To ABS-CBN, isang karangalan po na naging bahagi at nakasama ko po kayo. Mahal ko kayo. Para sa #MalayangPamamahayag.”

Karen Davila emphasized that more serious problems in the country need immediate solutions, but NTC still chose to stop ABS-CBN.

Bianca Gonzalez reiterated that even Congress allowed the continued operations of the giant network as its franchise is being reviewed and that the Senate has confirmed that ABS-CBN has complied with everything needed to ensure continuous operation.
