Celebrities have several reason why they decide to change their networks.
Some do it for career growth while others due to their salary.
Whatever reason these famous personalities may have, one thing remains constant.
And that is their career move will be for their best interest and the people close to them.
Comedienne Pokwang recently shocked her fans after she allegedly confirmed that she will finally leave her home station, ABSCBN.
The Kapamilya network had stopped airing their shows since May 5 and they are currently awaiting the decision from the c0ngress if they will have their franchise renewed.
When this issue became louder early this year, Pokie is one of the Kapamilya talents who became very vocal in showing her support for the TV giant.
However, intrigue came along the way when Eat Bulaga host Paolo Ballesteros announced that the comedienne will have an appearance on their show as a noontime guest.
It eventually happened and received mixed reactions from her fans and followers.
With that, speculations about her network transfer surfaced.
Mga single fathers ang choices natin ngayong Father's Day episode ng Bawal Judgmental. Si Pokwang at ang kanyang home partner na si Daniel Gabriel na taga Norzagaray, Bulacan ang nagtulungan kumilatis sa mga choices for today.

However, several netizens shared that Pokwang still has an exclusive contract with the Kapamilya that will end next year.
Despite that issue, the guesting of Pokwang on the longest-running noontime show in the Kapuso network trended on social media.
Some said that she looked so comfortable throwing banter with the hosts of Eat Bulaga.
Meanwhile, the comedienne is still as vocal as even in showing her support for ABS-CBN amid the franchise renewal issue. She even shared a post on Instagram about #VoteYestoABSCBN.

Para sa mga kaibigan kong camera man, makeup artists, utility, security guard, drivers, janitors, event marshals, #IbalikAngABSCBN sila talaga ang pinaka kinakaawaan ko please sa mga mangbabatas Po kahit para sakanila nalang po sila na tunay na dapat lingunin nyo 🙏🏼 #VoteYesforABSCBN
But an article from Abante revealed that Pokie appeared to be confirming her network transfer.
Instagram user @misspendon commented that one of these days, we may see her on a different network already.
“mukat mukat makikita mo si Pokwang nasa kabilang istasyon na.”
To the surprise of her fans, Pokie replied to the said netizen and confirmed it is true.
She revealed that she already asked permission to ABS-CBN last year that she will transferring. However, the comedienne told that her bosses did not permitted her to leave.
Despite of this, Pokie said that her asking of permission to leave does not mean she will not support her friends in ABS-CBN.
“Hindi ba pwedend sumuporta muna bago umalis? May mga kaibigan akong maiiwan teh!”
Apparently, this sounds as confirmation of Pokwang’s network transfer.
Pokwang has been with the Kapamilya network since 2004.
According to the showbiz website PEP, Pokwang has indeed already moved on.
One of their article recently announced that she, along with fellow Kapamilya star Ria Atayde and GMA7’s Pauleen Luna, will have their own talk show.
