Ginamit na ang star power! Lea Salonga shares online petition for ABS-CBN franchise renewal
Lea Salonga has thrown her support behind the call for the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise, which is set to expire on March 30, 2020.
Salonga shared on Twitter Sunday (January 19) the link to the online petition aiming to garner 1 million signatures for ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal.
The petition, which has the hashtag, #NoToABSCBNShutdown, was created by the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) on change.org.
“Yes, I have personal and professional reasons for this one. Not gonna lie,” Salonga tweeted.
The singer is a judge on upcoming season of The Voice Teens on ABS-CBN. She also appears on some of the network’s shows.
President Rodrigo Duterte has repeatedly threatened to block the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise due to the network’s alleged bias against him.
The House Committee on Legislative Franchises has yet to schedule a hearing for the nine bills filed for the renewal of the network’s franchise.
