Will Karen stay or will she go?
Could it be true that Karen Davila’s contract with ABS-CBN has expired and not only is she not renewing it but she’s also, well, jumping ober da bakod (if you know what that means)?
The Internet is sizzling with tsismis to that effect and my New York-based friend, who is also Karen’s good friend, is worried to death.
“I’m just bothered because over the years, Karen has proven her worth and loyalty to ABS-CBN and she has delivered numerous top-caliber reports for the station,” said my friend in an e-mail. “Her ethics and style of reporting contributed a lot of integrity to the ABS-CBN News & Current Affairs. It’s about time somebody clarified the rumor.”
My friend (and Karen’s followers) may rest assured after reading the following official statement from ABS-CBN PR executive Bong Osorio:
The public has been kept guessing the past few weeks about the rumored changes that will take place in the country’s leading news and current affairs division.
Here’s the real score that should put to rest the misinformation drive that some quarters have so desperately planted in the print media the past few weeks:
Broadcast journalist Ces Drilon returns on ABS-CBN’s late evening newscast Bandila. Ces will again join Korina Sanchez and Henry Omaga Diaz in the International Emmy-nominated newscast that will be introducing new changes starting Oct 6. Watch out.
ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs’ flagship news program TV Patrol World will be, as usual, anchored by Ted Failon, Karen Davila and Julius Babao.
Karen will continue doing her weekly morning program Wonder Mom which has been extended to one hour as it has been earning positive feedback from viewers who find the show informative, helpful and entertaining.
