Pati si Mel Tiangco, Hindi Nakaligtas sa Pang-Aalipusta ng mga Big Bosses sa ABS-CBN

Published

on

Mel Tiangco is one of the most respected and well-loved news anchors in the industry. But before building her successful career in GMA 7, did you know that the 24 Oras host used to be a Kapamilya? In the past, Mel Tiangco used to work for ABS-CBN, but her career ended in a highly-publicized suspension that will eventually change her course in life.

In 1995, the renowned host was suspended from the ABS-CBN network after appearing in a commercial. According to ABS-CBN, Tiangco, who was then a host of “Mel and Jay” with Jay Sonza, violated her contract by appearing in a commercial that was not pre-approved by the management.

This incited a long and tedious legal battle that will span for years to come. During her interview way back in 2013, Mel recalled this battle as one of the most challenging and painful events in her life:

“Kasi sobra ang panlalait sa akin. Sobra ang pagtapak sa akin. Dini-describe ko nga nun na, feeling ko, para akong ipis nun. Alam n’yo naman kung paano ba patayin ang ipis? Di ba, tinatapakan, tapos idiin pa para mapisa nang husto? Ganun ang feeling ko nun.”

Admittedly, the “Magpakailanman” host claimed that she already forgave the persons who wronged her. Mel is not one to hold grudges, and she decided to let go of her hard feelings in the past and move on to better prospects in the future.

With her suspension from the Kapamilya network, Mel decided to turn her back to the people who wronged her for good. With her co-host, Jay Sonza, they transferred to GMA 7. In the Kapuso network, Mel quickly rose to be one of the most successful new anchors in the industry.

After 12 hearings, the House Committee on Legislative Franchises denied the network’s bid for a franchise renewal. On May 7, ABS-CBN has gone off-air following a cease-and-desist order from the National Telecommunications Commission. Aside from their lapsed franchise and tax-related allegations, NTC also pointed out the mounting cases against ABS-CBN filed by their former employees.
