The old saying “when one door closes, another opens” seems to be true for the workers affected by the retrenchment of the media giant channel 2.
TV5 chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan reportedly said that their network is ready to absorb some of the displaced workers of ABS following its closure.
“We are revving up our entertainment content creation and will need creatives, talents, directors, scriptwriters, cameramen, etc.,”
“If these are willing and able to work with us, we’re prepared to offer alternative jobs for the relevant displaced workers over time,”
According to the business tycoon any direct talks has yet to happen between the two networks.
The Kapamilya network recently announced a major retrench among its employees which will come to effect by August 31.
Although it is not the ideal option for their workers, it is much better that to have nothing.
So far, comedian Pokwang and actress Jessy Mendiola are the two currently confirmed celebrities to have their own shows.
A few days ago, ABS actress Janella Salvador was also reportedly one of the actress whom TV5 had reach for one of their upcoming program.
However, the talks did not push through due to the young actress problem with her attitude. Columnist Salve Asis on her Philstar column wrote:
“Sayang naman, biglang laglag diumano sa isang pina-planong programa si Janella Salvador na ipalalabas sa TV5.”
“Ayon sa chika, nagmaldita raw kasi ito sa isang tumawag sa kanya na may say sa gagawin sanang programa.”
“Ayun, nakaalpas pa raw ang sanay at siguradong trabaho na.”
Salvador became viral a few weeks ago due to her issue with her former personal assistant.
According to her former PA, she accused Janella of not giving the salary.
The c0ntr0versy even reached the program of Raffy Tulfo In Action.
Initially, the singer actress was supposed to answer the allegations thrown at her on the said program.

However, she later changed her mind and issued an answer through a social media post.
Her post seems to have reach Raffy Tulfo and for his defense, he told that he has given Janella a fair chance to air her side.
