The old saying that all things will come to and end seemed to finally struck ABS’ famous noontime show It’s Showtime. Although the program itself will still continue, one of its integral personality finally had abandoned ship.
According to Cristy Fermin, the director is resigning from the network and will leave his noontime show which ran for over 11 years already up until now.
The noontime show he created is among the few Kapamilya programs which stood strongly amid the adversities of the network.
In Cristy Ferminute, the old broadcaster revealed that the resignation of its director, Bobet Vidanes, is already confirmed.
She then gave a brief background of the director. Accordingly, he started as an audio man until he became a camera man.
He then got to marry Cory Vidanes, one of the big bosses of the network, and they got three children. His career prospered as a director in the Kapamilya network.
And according to an article from PEP, Direk Bobet Vidanes has indeed already filed his resignation as the director of noontime show It’s Showtime. After being the beloved director of the show for a decade, he is reportedly transferring to TV5.
Since the closure of ABS-CBN, many artists from the Kapamilya network transferred to different network.
Sadly, another Kapamilya family will be transferring to TV5. This is after Direk Bobet Vidanes is reportedly resigned and will be a consultant of Launch Out Loud.
Launch Out Loud is the rival noontime show of It’s Showtime in TV5 that is being hosted by Billy Crawford, Alex Gonzaga, and Bayani Agbayani.
As we all know, Billy Crawford was also one of the mainstays of the Kapamilya noontime show. So it is really hard for the Showtime family to lose him.
On the other hand, the hosts and staffs of the said show have no idea about their new director.
Reportedly, it was a personal reason why Vidanes came up to accept the good offer of Brighlight Production.
It will be very hard to the staffs specially to the hosts who really became close with Direk Bobet. They will also be adjusting with their new director.
The 11 years of Direk Bobet was surely loved and embraced by many of their viewers.
How will be the flow of the show now? What do you think is the reason of Bobet Vidanes to his sudden transfer?
