Kapamilya Stars Coco Martin & Piolo Pascual Pleads Congress to Renew ABS-CBN Franchise


Veteran and prominent Kapamilya stars Coco Martin and Piolo Pascual, two of ABS-CBN's most bankable actors pleads the Philippine Congress to renew the franchise of ABS-CBN, the most popular media company in the Philippines today.


The two Kapamilya Stars were joined by famous personalities working for ABS-CBN, such as Iza Calzado, Ryza Cenon, Angel Aquino and Bituin Escalante wrote a letter to the Philippine Congress representing the members of the Philippine film and television as they wrote a heartfelt open letter.



The artists open letter to Congress expressed concerns over the workers of ABS-CBN, including their talents that might be affected and lost their jobs if the Congress fails to give another 25 years of franchise to the said television network giant.

According to the statement of the artists working for ABS-CBN, they became more worried after a news report revealing that ABS-CBN should fix their problem with Pres. Rody Duterte first before asking for franchise renewal.

The group of artists working for ABS-CBN pointed out that the whole organization of ABS-CBN should not be affected by the President’s anger towards to television network.

The statement reads that "Mass Media play a vital role in society, in the daily lives of the people. It is a source of information and knowledge; and of course, entertainment." the statement reads.



The group of artists added further that "In the Philippines, where many still do not have access to the web or have the budget to spend hours browsing in an internet shop, television and radio are their only means to connect with the rest of the nation and perhaps, the world, for free, with just a simple device called antenna,” it added.

"21%* of our kababayan are surviving on P125 or less a day. While many are trying to make ends meet on below minimum wage income. In order to have some respite from their daily grind, our poor kababayan would gather around a sari-sari store with a TV set; or outside the door and windows of a house whose owner is generous enough to let them watch TV with their family. At the very least they listen to the radio. Be it news, a tele-serye, radio-drama or music, important lessons can always be learned."
