On May 7, one of the leading broadcast networks in the Philippines, ABS-CBN, went off-air following a cease-and-desist order from the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC). Many people protested against this forceful closure, but there are also some who supported NTC’s decision, including a former broadcaster who came to light with a shocking revelation.
Among them is Jobert Sucaldito, one of the former broadcasters in the Kapamilya network. Jobert has been serving as a DZMM broadcaster for almost 20 years, until he was illegally dismissed in January 2020. Now, he’s finally ready to speak out.
In a lengthy statement on Facebook, Sucaldito revealed what truly happens behind the doors of the giant network. The former broadcaster asked the network to stop its bluff of using its 11,000 employees as ‘human shield.’
In a shocking revelation, Sucaldito claimed that ABS-CBN execs have exploited the rights of many employees in the past, including cameramen and broadcasters. The network is allegedly facing mounting cases against the employees that they have illegally dismissed.
“Saan ang sinasabi niyong puso ng Kapamilya? Saan? +Ganoon ba ang Kapamilya? Walang puso? Dahil contractual lang sila kaya anytime ay puwede niyo silang sipain palabas? Anong kasalanan nila? Kung napansin ninyo, sino ba ang yumaman sa ABS-CBN – silang magkakuntsaba lang naman sa loob ah,” wrote Sucaldito.
Earlier in January, Jobert Sucaldito filed a case against DZMM, where he worked as a broadcaster for many years. According to Sucaldito, he was illegally dismissed over some claims he made on-air about actress Nadine Lustre. On January 7, he issued a public apology. Three days later, he was served an indefinite suspension.

Mga Empleyado ng Courier Company, Inulan ng Batikos Dahil sa Paghahagis ng Package
Amid the community quarantine, more and more people are relying on couriers for their online orders. In the Philippines, one of the fastest courier company is J&T Express. This courier company is known for its swift delivery and reliable services all over the nation. However, a video taken recently in one of their warehouses threatened to tarnish their reputation.
In a viral video, several J&T employees were seen carelessly tossing the parcels into a truck. While they were not wearing their employee’s uniform, the logo on the truck confirmed that it occurred in an undisclosed J&T warehouse. In the video, the men can be seen carelessly throwing the parcels inside the back of the truck.
The reckless behavior of these courier employees earned the wrath of netizens on social media. Many can’t believe that a reputable company like J&T has a lax security and protocol when it comes to handling parcels.
On the other hand, the J&T company has already issued an official statement about this incident. On June 22, J&T informed their followers on Facebook that they are already investigating this matter. J&T also claimed that they do not condone the reckless behavior of their employees on the video, and will immediately take action.
“We would also like to assure the public that this is an isolated case. All of our facilities, including our branches and warehouses across the country, are under 24/7 monitoring. We also follow strict protocols in handling the shipments and ensure that these are handled with proper care.”
In addition to this, J&T claimed that they have already identified the personnel in the video, and they shall meet proper sanctions. “We have already identified al the involved personnel in the video. Proper sanctions will be given to them accordingly.”
Do you think that these careless workers should be suspended from J&T? We’d love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below. For more updates on the latest happenings, feel free to follow us on Facebook.
Angel Locsin, Nanawagan na Pakawalan ang 6 na Jeepney Drivers na Arestado
On June 3, six jeepney drivers were arrested after rallying on the streets. The drivers were asking for financial aid from the government, after being jobless throughout the community quarantine in Metro Manila. However, instead of receiving support and assistance, the six jeepney drivers who took to the streets were jailed and will be facing charges.
Authorities claimed that the drivers violated the community quarantine rules by protesting on the streets. Their arrest caused an outcry on social media, especially since some high-ranking politicians also violated the quarantine, like General Debold Sinas. But unlike the drivers, Sinas is still walking scot-free.
In this situation, the true victims are not just the arrested drivers, but their families as well. Without the breadwinners, who will provide for their families’ daily needs? For this reason, Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin appealed to the hearts of the people on social media.
The award-winning actress used Twitter in order to make her voice heard. Angel asked people in a position to ‘be considerate’ of the drivers’ situation, citing that they only protested because they were desperate for help. Moreover, Angel also claimed that without these drivers, their families will surely go hungry.
“Please, if you cannot help them, let them go home. They just want food for their families. Maraming gutom. Sabihin na nating may natanggap pero hindi natin alam kung enough na ba yun para sa pamilya nila para mapilitan silang lumabas. Konting puso and consideration.”
Meanwhile, to fight their case, a licensed lawyer who’s also the daughter of a jeepney driver pledged to help the six drivers, more popularly known as PISTON 6. The lawyer is also a top-notcher during the 2019 bar exam.
How about you, would you also like to help these jeepney drivers? We’d love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below. For more updates on the latest happenings, feel free to follow us on Facebook.
Balik TV na nga ba? ABS-CBN Logo, Ipinalabas na Ulit sa Channel 2
It has been a month since the Kapamilya network went off air. On May 5, the largest broadcast network in the Philippines went off air following a cease-and-desist order from the National Telecommunications Network. The NTC and Solicitor General Jose Calida cited the Kapamilya network’s lack of franchise to continue operate.
Since then, the Kapamilya network has been appealing in order to get their operations back and working. For a month, all of their operations on television and radio were halted. Tapings were put on hold, and 11,000 of ABS-CBN’s employees were uncertain of their future.
Ever since ABS-CBN has gone off air, the network channel’s screen was pitch black. For the avid fans of the Kapamilya network, this served as a reminder that free speech has been stifled by the administration. But earlier this week, it seems like there’s a light at the end of the tunnel with this recent development.
In a report from Philippine Entertainment Portal, it was stated that ABS-CN’s screen is now showing the network’s logo. And while there is still no news about the network’s franchise, ABS-CBN loyalists claim that their logo is a sign of their comeback.
On the other hand, the ABS-CBN executives and artists are still continuing their fight in order to get their network back in business once again. On June 3, their fight for the franchise renewal is still ongoing in the congress hearing.
Many artists and fans are also campaigning for the network’s franchise renewal. Among those who showed support for their home network are Angel Locsin, Coco Martin, Kim Chiu, Ogie and Regine Alcasid, Liza Soberano, Kathryn Bernardo, and many more.
Are you also excited to finally see ABS-CBN back on television? We’d love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to share your thoughts with us in the comments section below. For more updates on the latest happenings, feel free to follow us on Facebook.
