ABS-CBN, GMA-7 executives laud partnership
The executives of ABS-CBN and GMA-7 made sure to witness this unexpected milestone in the world of television.
During the screening, ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak said in his speech that the network has embraced its new era of being a content provider in partnerships.
He says, “You know when ABS-CBN lost its franchise, it was like the end of the world for us. It was actually one of the most painful experiences we’ve been through, but that loss also taught us to become a better company, a humbler company, and instead of doing everything on our own, it made us learn to embrace partnerships in our journey as storytellers. There’s no better proof of that than this wonderful partnership that we have with GMA.”
