After 15 years of working at ABS-CBN, Pokwang decided to transfer to TV5.

In a press conference, Pokwang couldn’t hide her tears while talking about her decision to leave ABS-CBN to look for another job as the Kapamilya Network’s franchise was already expired and rejected.

According to her, she’s very thankful to ABS-CBN for letting her find a new job.

“Nagpapasalamat po ako nang sobrang-sobrang pasasalamat po talaga sa ABS, sa mga nagtiwala sa akin. And nagpapasalamat pa rin po ako, kasi ako po yung una nilang sinabihang wala nang kontrata,” said Pokwang.

“Dahil ganun kaaga po nila ako sinabihan, maaga po akong nakapag-decide, nakapag-isip para po sa pamilya ko,” she added.

“Kasi hindi po ako puwedeng huminto. Hindi po ako puwedeng ngumanga. Marami pong umaasa sa akin,” she also said.

Pokwang said that she’s not upset that ABS-CBN canceled her contract because it gave her a chance to decide freely.

The comedian quickly found a new job in TV5 as a host of game show “Fill in The Bank” together with Jose Manalo.

She’s also hosting for another TV5 show titled “Chika, Besh” together with Ria Atayde and Pauleen Luna-Sotto.

“In all fairness naman po talaga… thank you po talaga sa APT, sa Archangel na bukas po yung pintuan nila. Buti na lang at may sumalo agad sa akin. Thank you po talaga. Malaking tulong po ito talaga sa pamilya ko. Maraming-maraming salamat po. Hindi mawawala siyempre kung ano yung nagawa sa akin ng ABS, sobrang thank you po talaga,” she said.

In the same interview, she also said that her issue with Baninay Bautista was already over.

““Kung naging anak ko naman siya, ganun din naman yung reaction ko. Nanay. Natural lang yun. Hindi lang naman para sa sarili ko, kundi dun din sa paligid ko. Lahat,” Pokwang said.

It can be remembered that Pokwang criticized Baninay publicly for her vlog.
