The Kapamilya president and CEO fought a good fight although lawmakers still voted to deny the network’s franchise Friday afternoon. The debacle has narrowed further the chances that the network can return to air anytime soon.
Katigbak earlier released a statement saying he was “deeply hurt” with how the House of Representatives voted to silence the network, but he also made sure to film himself thanking everyone supporting the media giant.
That proved to be more heartbreaking, as he could not start his message without his voice cracking as he tried to choke back his tears.
A netizen caught this on camera, with the ever-cool and calm Katigbak fighting back the tears with a warm smile. Watch him here:
