Magandang Buhay host Melai Cantiveros paid tribute to all her big bosses at ABS-CBN during the House hearing on the network franchise renewal.
On Instagram, Melai gave a tribute message to their big bosses who faced Congress with humility.
‘Maraming salamat po sa aming mga bosses, na naging boses namin sa pakikipaglaban sa pag-renew ng aming franchise. ‘Di kami magsasawa na magpasalamat sa inyu. Binastos man kayo nanatili kayong mabubuti at marangal. Ngayon ko naintindihan bakit kayo naging boss nmin.”
She also recalled the kindness that was shown to her after winning Pinoy Big Brother.
“Naalala ko nung kapanalo namin sa ‘PBB.’ After namin manalo, sabi ni Sir Gabby (Lopez) na ‘di namin makakalimutan mag-asawa, “Jason, Melai, sabihin n’yo lang sa akin kung may problema kayo ha. Ako bahala sa inyo,'” she said
“Sobra. Naramdaman agad namin noon na Kapamilya kami at may-ari pa ng ABS ang kumausap sa amin na ganun. Napatunayan ko na mabait talaga mga boss namin. So much respect po sa inyo. Patuloy ang aming dasal at pananalig na mababalik natin ito. Mahal namin kayo,” she added.

ABS-CBN Chief Executive Officer Carlo Katigbak also earned admiration from the netizens and Kapamilya supporters for being calm and professional amidst the fierce interpellation during house hearings.
Respect Begets Respect. That’s why I admire Carlo Katigbak. It's easy to give respect to people worthy of it , but how about giving respect to those who don't quite measure up! To give respect to all and not just those you like is the true meaning of giving respect.

Former Senator JV Ejercito also proud of his Xavier School batchmate Katigbak’s character
I may never be one of the favorites of ABS-CBN, but I am very proud of my Xavier batchmate Carlo Katigbak for having the poise and composure in facing the very tough hearings.
Luceat Lux Bro!
