GMA Network issues official statements on regional stations

GMA Network has released two official statements on Sunday, April 26, 2015, regarding the reported closing of regional offices in Bacolod, Cagayan De Oro, Naga and Iloilo, as well as the cancellation of some of its local shows in Cebu and Davao.

According to the statement, what was done is part of a "strategic streamlining of programs and manpower in its provincial stations" that is "geared towards increasing ratings and revenues."

Here are the two official statements released by the network on Sunday through gmanetwork.com:

GMA Network is in the process of undertaking a strategic streamlining of programs and manpower in its provincial stations to ensure business competitiveness.

“This has resulted in the reduction of manpower and targets more efficient operations. Severance packages are offered by GMA to all affected personnel.

“GMA Network greatly appreciates the contributions rendered by our Kapuso in the regions and we wish them all the best as they seek new opportunities outside the Network."

 

The strategic streamlining being undertaken by the Network is geared towards increasing ratings and revenues of all of its regional stations from more efficient operations.

We are not closing down any regional station. Pending completion of the study and recommendation of the Regional TV Review Committee, all the existing regional stations other than Cebu, Iloilo, Davao and Dagupan will be continued as satellite selling stations.

Though some regional programs in the morning and afternoon were cancelled, the afternoon news programs of Cebu, Iloilo, Davao and Dagupan remain and will be further strengthened.

As mentioned in our earlier statement, all affected personnel will be offered severance packages.

This undertaking is not connected  to the impending talks with Mr. Ramon S. Ang.
