Despite the reports that the executives of the longest-running noontime show Eat Bulaga already decided to stop the rumored rebranding of the program, some news outlets continued to report that the internal issue between its official is not yet over.
In a report by Bilyonaryo.com, the chairman of Television and Production Exponents (TAPE) former lawmaker Romy Jalosjos is still in the works to rebrand the show by allegedly forcing the creative staff of Eat Bulaga to retire.
The report also said that some staff already received a notice about their retirement, but they can still return to work if they’re willing to accept a lower position and reduced salary.
They also added that some staff wanted to file charges against the executives of Tape for forcing them to retire after decades of being loyal to the company.
It can be recalled that there were rumors that Jalosjos wanted the founding producer of Eat Bulaga, Tony Tuviera to retire from his position.
Tuviera reportedly gained the support of the current Eat Bulaga hosts including its foundations, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
If the rumored rebranding has been pushed, there were also reports that most of the hosts of the noontime show may resign and create their show to rival Eat Bulaga.
Tape was set to hold a press conference on April 15 to clarify all the issues surrounding Eat Bulaga.
