Here’s the official statement of GMA Network on ‘Eat Bulaga’
GMA Network expressed sadness over the recent development in the issue between Eat Bulaga and the new management of TAPE Inc.
On Wednesday, May 31, 2023, fans of the longest-running noontime show were shocked by the announcement that EB main hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon had. They formally announced that they are leaving the TAPE Inc management.
With this, fans are wondering what will happen next. The longest-running noontime show is celebrating its 44 years this year.
The show started on RPN where it aired for 9 years. Then, it transferred to ABS-CBN and that partnership lasted for 6 years. Eat Bulaga’s home for the longest time is GMA Network. The noontime show is on the Kapuso network for 28 years now.
However, since the hosts of Eat Bulaga are departing from TAPE Inc, many are wondering where the show will air. In a statement that the Kapuso network released after TVJ’s statement, it stated that TAPE still has an existing contract with them.
The Kapuso management is saddened by this news and hopes that everything will be settled. Here is the official statement of GMA Network:
“We are saddened by today’s unexpected turn of events with regard to Eat Bulaga. GMA has been the home of Eat Bulaga for many years and we still have a block time agreement with TAPE until the end of 2024 for the noontime slot. Together with all the Filipino fans, we pray for a smooth and swift resolution of their issues. Maraming salamat sa patuloy na suporta, mga Kapuso.”
