Kris Aquino Leaves ABS-CBN, to Join APT Entertainment

The fate of Kris Aquino’s entertainment future has been confirmed.

‘The Queen of All Media’ announced on her Instagram yesterday that she is officially done as an ABS-CBN talent. In addition, Kris announced that she will work on a new project with ‘Eat Bulaga’ producer Tony Tuviera.




In response, ABS-CBN issued this statement:

“We thank Kris for the many years that she has been a Kapamilya bringing joy, hope, and inspiration to our viewers worldwide. She will always be a Kapamilya and we wish her well in her new journey.”

Kris Aquino had been a part of ABS-CBN for 20 years, having hosted numerous talk shows (e.g. ‘The Buzz’, ‘Kris TV’) and game shows (e.g. ‘Game KNB’, ‘Kapamilya Deal or No Deal’), played the role of judge in ‘Pilipinas Got Talent’, and acted on several dramas (e.g. ‘Hiram’, ‘Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo’) and movies (e.g. ‘Sukob’, ‘Feng Shui’). Her long and distinguished service on the said network attracted not only fans, but also critics alike.

Kris’ most recent project with ABS-CBN, ‘Kris TV’, ended last April, as she struggled with health issues in the show’s final months. After that, Kris went on a well-deserved vacation, before returning home to decide her fate as a talent.

On July 1, Kris made an unexpected appearance on GMA’s now-defunct talk show ‘Yan ang Morning’. Despite the guesting, she remained mum over her next move.

Initially, Kris talked to ABS-CBN with regards to a possible new project. But in the end, she decided to hook up with Tony Tuviera for a different TV project, which could be her first outside ABS-CBN since GMA’s ‘Startalk’ 21 years ago.

It remains to be seen, however, if the said new project will indeed air on GMA (APT’s current shows ‘Calle Siete’, ‘Eat Bulaga’ and ‘Sunday PinaSaya’ all currently air on GMA). Regardless, let’s just hope that Kris can stay healthy while continuing to do what she loves best: entertaining the viewers.

  1. If the conclusion holds true, a politically-motivated outspoken Kapuso fantard — who is a fan of WWE and Julie Ann San Jose — will harness big nightmares on his loyal network.

    I think you know who I refer to but to be honest, I will let him go react freely with his insanity.

    • The fact is, those who don’t like Kris (e.g. NBA, anime fans) will be relieved, whereas those who supported her all those years will be stunned to hear the news. So many reactions are coming left to right.

    And Kris Aquino will return in Philippine television for a special interview with the President, Rodrigo Duterte on November 11. And it will be aired, not on 2 or 7, but on TV5 and PTV-4 (for the Go Negosyo Kapatid project)

    As per her IG photo, Kris Aquino will set to start the taping for her new show. Saang network? Ang clue: “Where i belong”.

    Obvious naman na mapupunta sa Kapuso Network kasi dating slogan ng network yan. “Where You Belong”

    Maybe you can tackle this development in a few weeks.
