Former Presidential Communications Secretary Martin Andanar just had a sweet reunion with his former colleagues at TV5 network.
Andanar paid a visit to the Manny V. Pangilinan-led broadcast network, where he previously worked as a news anchor before entering government service. He met his station bosses and other colleagues, and he could not contain his excitement.
In a Facebook post, Andanar expressed gratitude for the warm reception he received during his station visit. He likewise congratulated the network for the developments taking place at the station, particularly the upcoming variety show of the popular comedy trio of Senate President Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
“Nitong huli nakasama ko ang mga bossing ko sa mundo ng broadcasting. Masaya at excited ako para sa kanila dahil sa mga recent development sa on air programming ng mediaquest tulad nalang ng pag lipat nina TVJ, adjustments sa mga news program, entertainment at marami pang iba,” Andanar said.
Even after retiring from the network in 2016, Andanar still feels like part of the TV5 family.
“Masaya din ako dahil kahit halos pitong taon na mula noong mag-retire ako sa Tv5 noong 2016 ay welcome na welcome pa rin ako sa kumpanya. Patunay na wala talagang pinipili ang MVP group pagdating sa mga programa o mga talent na nangangailangan ng tahanan,” he said.
“Mahalaga talaga ang magandang pakikisama, magandang relasyon and not burning bridges, ika nga . Salamat at saludo, MVP Group!” he added.
Andanar also highlighted the bright future ahead for MediaQuest, the company that operates TV5 network, and lauded the entire team for their projects across media platforms. He said they deserve the success “because you never gave up on your audience.”
“The future looks very bright for mediaquest. Congratulations to all kapatids lalo na kay Boss MVP at MediaQuest Boss Jane Basas, Boss Guido, Bossing SienaO, Boss PP, Boss DDP, Boss LCV at Boss Raul para sa lahat ng magagandang projects ng TV5, Cignal, Radyo5 at iba pa,” he said.
