Earlier, AMBS President Maribeth Tolentino shared their network’s commitment to provide TV shows and programs relevant to the lives of the Filipino people.
As the network’s soft launch date approaches, here are the personalities who will be a part of ALLTV.
Revillame seems to be among the top personalities on the network. He admitted being in close discussions with AMBS top executive and former Senate President Manny Villar on the affairs of ALLTV.
Kuya Wil earlier announced that his show, Wowowin, will start its soft launch on ALLTV starting on September 13. He signed his contract with AMBS on July 15, months after his contract with GMA ended.
Toni Gonzaga and Direk Paul Soriano
Toni Gonzaga and her husband, Direk Paul Soriano, also joined the Villar-owned AMBS on September 1. The former Kapamilya host went on Instagram to share the development, saying how much she’s excited and happy with their new partnership.
Toni caused controversy earlier this year when she resigned as the show’s main host after 16 years on ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother (PBB).
The former ABS-CBN news personality went on Facebook Live to share his contract signing with AMBS on September 6, 2022. “Ka Tunying” was excited about the news and expressed, “Bagong pamilya, bagong kabanata. Tara, samahan niyo ako!”
Ka Tunying was all smiles as he shook hands with top AMBS officials, including the father and son, Manny and Mark Villar. He claims he is thrilled because it has always been his intention to inform, educate, and entertain viewers and he is eager to be back on free TV.
Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla has joined the list of celebrities moving to AMBS, as announced on Friday, September 9.
The former It’s Showtime and PBB host was with manager Boy Abunda as they posed with AMBS top honcho, Villar. According to the announcement, Mariel’s “high level of energy and candid remarks” will endear more to their viewers.
For Mariel, it was the “easiest decision” she has ever made. She said she’s excited for the “infinite possibilities” they can do together.
Ciara Sotto is also part of ALLTV, as announced on Friday, September 9.
The daughter of one of Eat Bulaga’s Original Dabarkads, Senator Tito Sotto, will be part of ALL TV’s “barkada of stars.”
