During the second live broadcast of his show “Wowowin” on ALLTV on Wednesday, September 14, the veteran host shared how hands-on he is with the progress of his new home network.
Revillame assured the viewers that they could look forward to more exciting teleseryes, noontime shows, and reality shows. He sought the support of the public for ALLTV, saying that they aim to help provide jobs. Revillame revealed that they hired many former employees of ABS-CBN who lost their jobs.
“Tulungan niyo po kami na umunlad ang ALLTV kasi marami tayong mabibigyan ng mga trabaho. Yung mga nawalan ng trabaho, kinukuha namin,” Revillame said.
He also appealed to the public for more understanding of celebrities and personalities who decided to transfer to ALLTV. He went on to share that he’s the one responsible for convincing celebrities to make the switch.

Revillame explained that it is his way of contributing to his new home network. He said, “Siyempre, tumutulong ako sa kompanyang ito dahil kung sino lang naman yung pupuwede at kung sino ang kailangan.”
ALLTV had its soft launch on September 13 and was attended by its exclusive artists like Anthony Taberna, Toni Gonzaga, Mariel Padilla, and Ciara Sotto, and guests like Julia Barretto, Ruffa Gutierrez, and more. Toni’s show, Toni Talks, also aired its first episode on ALLTV with an exclusive interview with President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Revillame admitted that they went through some technical difficulties, but they are looking for ways to improve. “Siyempre, may technical difficulties kami, birth pains ‘yan kung tawagin. Mahirap, yung mga audio namin, nahirapan dahil hindi naman po studio itong Wil Tower,” he said.
