Wowowin host Willie Revillame announced that he is preparing to groom a new host for his Kapuso variety show.
He hinted that he is leaving Wowowin soon and would want the show to go on with a new host.
“Sa tamang panahon, sasabihin ko po ‘yung magiging desisyon ko at sasabihin ko dito sa programang ito. Mawala man ako gusto ko meron pa ring isang host na makakausap n’yo,” Revillame said in Wowowin.
Revillame said that the decision is tough for him and that he is carefully thinking about it. He also noted that he doesn’t want Wowowin to end because he said the program is a big help–to the people.
“Ipagdadasal ko ‘tong mabuti, pag-iisipan ko ‘tong mabuti pero sana ho, nakikiusap ako, tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang programang ito.
“Ang ganitong programa hindi dapat nawawala. Itong programang ‘to ay dapat laging nandyan. Kasi ho, itong programang ‘to [ay] walang halong pagdadamot, walang halong pagkukunwari, galing po lahat sa puso ang pagbibigay ng saya at tulong dito.”
Revillame said that he still hasn’t made a final decision, but noted that his Wowowin viewers would be the first to know.
“Sa tamang panahon, sa tamang oras, sasabihin ko kung ano ‘yung magiging desisyon ko sa buhay ko. Iniisip ko lahat, sa bawat kasama ko sa industriyang ‘to.
“Wala pang desisyon, meron pa rin tayong Shopee, meron pa ring bigayan, nagbibigay pa rin ng saya.”
According to speculations, Revillame is planning to join politics that’s why he is looking for a possible replacement to host his show.
President Duterte previously expressed his interest in Revillame as he invited him to become one of his senators.
As of this writing, the Wowowin host still hasn’t announced his decision whether to leave the show or not.
Wowowin has been running for more than six years since it first premiered on GMA Network in May 2015. The show marked Revillame’s comeback to the Kapuso network after 17 years.
The variety show remains the most-watched weekday variety show in the country.
According to the rating data of AGB Nielsen NUTAM survey on June 14, Wowowin scored 5.6% rating securing the number 9 position.
Wowowin’s rating was 0.5% higher than Eat Bulaga, which registered a rating of 5.1% occupying the number 11 position.
