Henry Omaga Diaz Back in ABS-CBN’s Flagship Newscast TV Patrol
HENRY OMAGA DIAZ – The veteran news caster joined Noli de Castro and Bernadette Sembrano in TV Patrol.
This year, the ABS-CBN Network faced one of so-far the biggest challenges it has faced – the shutting down of the network. It was due to the expired franchise of the network and it was not allowed to renew it.
Over three months ago, the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) released a Cease and Desist Order against the network. Thirteen hearings were held in the House of Representatives to discuss the issues surrounding the network.
Last July 10, the members of the House of Franchise Committee voted on whether or not to deny the network of a fresh 25-year franchise. The people are divided with regards to the issue.
A 70-11 voting result denied the ABS-CBN network of a fresh 25-year franchise. Undeniably, it left countless hearts broken as more than 10,000 people are employed to the network.
The ABS-CBN franchise denial was followed by massive employee retrenchments. Not only ordinary employees but as well as prominent ones lost their jobs.
A lot of changes also took place with regard to the assignments of those who are staying with the Kapamilya network. Recently, it was announced that another news anchor will join TV Patrol.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Henry Omaga Diaz will join Kabayan Noli de Castro and Bernadette Sembrano TV Patrol. The said program is the the flagship newscast of ABS-CBN network.
According to the report, Henry Omaga Diaz also worked in TV Patrol from 2001 to 2003. The following year until 2006, he is part of the TV Patrol Weekend.
“To be able to come back is a huge honor for me because even with the current limitations, many people in social media still follow and believe in the program,” Henry said.
