ABS-CBN Shutdown Shocks The Nation

Today May 5 in the unfortunate year of 2020, a sad yet infuriating news about the fate of the largest television network shocked the country. As the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) issued a cease and desist order to ABS-CBN and its subsidiary broadcast channels. This order came after the deadline of the broadcast franchise by the NTC in which there is also a pending bill in congress discussing the franchise.

In the final broadcast of TV patrol, they acknowledged the order by the NTC and also delivered news that still talks about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However this broadcast is heavy to watch as they also have their anchors Noli De Castro, Ted Failon, and Bernadette Sembrano tell the sad news to the public. 

So What Happens To ABS-CBN After March 2020?

People are really talking about what will happen to the TV network ABS-CBN after their broadcasting franchise will expire by the end of March 2020. As the biggest station in the country and also has branched out into different media entities, the thought of losing the network, all its shows, and all of its employees is a huge blow to broadcast media. Many of Filipinos grew up watching their shows and got to know their stars. 

And if you ask me, there are countless of memories from the people of ABS-CBN and their content, which new ones are still generated everyday for the entertainment and information of the public. Though let's look back on some of the shows and channels that the Kapamilya network has made an impact in my life.

Another Great Year For Piolo Pascual

I couldn't believe that Piolo Pascual will turn 40 next week, and he still has that charm like when he started showbiz. Take note that the girls who first fell in love with him are mostly mothers now and still in love with him even up to today. He has been one of the biggest stars of the Kapamilya Network and has been very active and loyal to the station. 

Though many people say that age will take a toll on celebrities as a new batch can easily replace them. But is is indeed different with Piolo which has been in the industry and now joined by his son  Inigo who is starting his own path for showbiz. 

Piolo has maintained his charming physique all these years and beyond the aesthetics of showbiz, he is doing it for the sake of his own health. As an endorser he never fails being part of big brands in the country, and one of them is the insurance company Sunlife.


Star Cinema launches its first movie of 2015 with a whole new genre bringing together romance and mystery in one with "HALIK SA HANGIN".  Starring Gerald Anerson, Julia Montes and JC de Vera, the movie deviates from the romcom and comedies which they usually have for their roster. 

Halik Sa Hangin is written by Enrico Santos and directed by  Emmanuel Quindo Palo. It will also be a first for a love triangle between Julia , Gerald and JC. PBB All-In Housemates , Fouth Solomon, Fifth Solomon and Mariz Racal also joins in the cast which will also be their movie debut.
