Robi Domingo admits the franchise denial of ABS-CBN hurts him until now

Domingo [still] believes that the franchise denial was motivated by the personal vendetta of President Duterte against the Network and this idea adds up to the pain he is feeling.

A year after when ABS-CBN’s franchise got denied in Congress, Robi Domingo still feels the pain of the Network’s shutdown.

Domingo [still] believes that the franchise denial was motivated by the personal vendetta of President Duterte against the Network and this idea adds up to the pain he is feeling.

“S’yempre sa una, sa mga panahon na ipinagkait, napulitika yung prangkisa, di mawawala yung sakit ng pakiramdam.”

Despite this, he vowed to remain with the Network and to fight for its rights until the end.

“Una lungkot, tapos inis, tapos napunta sa galit. Pero ngayon nandun ako sa lalaban ako hanggang dulo.

“Naniniwala ako sa serbisyong binibigay ng ABS-CBN.”

He also feels the different vibes inside the ABS-CBN studio. He misses the people he used to work with, especially the audience.

“Saka ngayon, pag pupunta ka sa loob ng building, sa loob ng studio, iba yung pakiramdam.

“Nandun yung kalungkutan, na siyempre nami-miss mo yung mga tao na palaging pumapasok dun, na dahil sa pandemya, wala nga tayong audience, kaunti ang puwedeng mamalagi dun.

“Pangalawa, dahil nga nawalan ng prangkisa, yung dating mga mukha na nakikita mo, wala na rin sila doon.

But seeing the people who stayed with the Network gives him hope that they will rise again together soon.

“Pero nabibigyan ng bagong kahulugan yung pagpasok namin sa building ng ABS-CBN kasi nakikita mo yung gigil na iparamdam sa lahat na kahit ano ang nangyari, kahit ganito ang sitwasyon, nandito kami, nandito tayo para sa mga Kapamilya natin.”

Growing up as an artist with ABS-CBN, he treats all his fellow artists and all part of the Network as his family.

“Pag nandun ka sa loob, hindi lang mga katrabaho mga nakikita mo, mga miyembro na ng pamilya mo. Dun sa pamilya na yun nagtutulungan kayo, nag-uusap na sana lahat ng nangyayari.

“Kung ano ang gagawin ninyo dun, makakaapekto at magbibigay ng liwanag at ligaya sa lahat ng manonood.”

No matter what the Network is undergoing at present, he assures that ABS-CBN will adhere to its mission of being in the service of the Filipino people.

“Siyempre, importanteng-importante isipin na, ‘Bakit nga ba natin ginagawa ito? Bakit nga ba tayo nandito?’

“Siyempre mapapaisip ka rin, ‘Hala, ano kaya ang mangyayari din sa amin kung saka-sakali, lalo na sa paparating na eleksyon? Bakit nga ba kami namamalagi?’

“Dahil naniniwala ako sa lahat ng mission at vision ng ABS-CBN.

“Saka the very fact na yung mga boss pinakita nila na lalaban kami, nandito kami, di kami aalis, di namin kayo iiwan.”

Robi launched his career in showbiz after winning as the first runner-up of the Teen Edition Plus of the reality show Pinoy Big Brother in 2008. Right after that, he became one of the talents of ABS-CBN talent management arm Star Magic.



He is now one of the most sought-after Kapamilya hosts of his generation.
