This statement of Boy Abunda about GMA surfaced amid the ABS-CBN Franchise issue
King of Talk Boy Abunda has this statement in the past, “I’ll end up in GMA”, surfaced amid the franchise renewal issue of ABS-CBN.
Tito Boy, as what the prominent talk show host is known in the entertainment industry, has already spent several years in the Kapamilya network. However, he first had his first showbiz talk show in the Kapuso network called Show and Tell.
Then, he became one of the pioneer hosts of the defunct GMA show Star Talk before he transferred to ABS-CBN and hosted The Buzz. In line with this, entertainment columnist Ronnie Carrasco shared in his article in Bandera that Tito Boy has this statement in the past: “Alam mo, Ron, I have a feeling I’ll end up in GMA.” The host also said to them that “don’t burn bridges.”
Carrasco recalled that this happened 10 years ago when the King of Talk invited them for a possible writing job with an online site affiliated with the Kapamilya network. After the briefing, the columnist said that Tito Boy gave that hint that he will return to his former network. At that time, the prominent talk show host was already in ABS-CBN.
Recalling, Boy Abunda hosted a dinner for Ai-Ai Delas Alas with executives from the Kapuso network. He even received bashing because of this as the dinner allegedly happened at the same time that the ABS-CBN rally was happening.
According to Carrasco, there is a possibility that one of the topics, intentional or unintentional, during that dinner would be the open doors of GMA for Tito Boy. The columnist added that even though the host had not yet expressed his contingency plan, he is quite sure that Tito Boy will teach do teaching jobs.
