Former GMA Sports Journalist Chino Trinidad revealed why he left the Kapuso channel after 23 years.
In an interview with Politiko Live, Chino narrated his closeness to the late broadcaster Mike Enriquez, saying that the latter was the one who brought him to GMA Network.
“Alam niyo kung gaano kalaki ang utang na loob ko kay Mike Enriquez? Siya lang naman ang nagdala sakin sa GMA in 2000 noong kinuha niya ako sa DZBB and that started my career, give my family life, gave me a platform for the last 23 years,” Chino said.
He then gave a hint about how things ended for him as a Kapuso journalist.
“Wish ko lang sana nagtapos ng maayos,” said Chino. “Hindi sa paraan na ‘yung pagtatapos ay mapait, maganda sana na you only have fond memories of the network you served and gave you a platform,”
Chino also complained that her media accreditation with FIBA was removed after he stopped working with GMA, a hint that he wanted to do a solo career as a sports journalist.
“Hindi na nga ako binigyan ng accreditation, tinanggal pa ‘yung accreditation ko sa FIBA.. Ang na-miss out ko is ‘yung opportunity para maging mata, bibig ng mga nagmamahal sa basketball,” he stated.
