QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – One by one, ABS-CBN’s news staff are leaving the defunct network and moving to new gigs at former rival TV and radio stations, the latest of whom is TV Patrol anchor Ted Failon who is moving to TV 5.
This makes Karen Davila, who has been holding out hope that the Kapamilya network will eventually reopen, assuring her a complete return to her anchoring duties, really sad.
Rumors have been going around in circles that Davila has signed a contract with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to be its lead BINGO caller when the gaming parlors reopen in the very near future. Specifically, she is said to be assigned to BINGO Bonanza, located at the Mega Mall in Mandaluyong.
Davila has denied the rumors. She told The Adobo Chronicles that her preference would be to remain full time on TV, and her professional goal is to be the No. 1 news anchor not only in the Philippines but in the whole of Southeast Asia. “No offense meant to our senior citizens who frequent the BINGO parlors nationwide,” she said.
Under B… 1… uno. No. 1 news anchor…
