WBR Entertainment has signed a co-production agreement with GMA Network Inc. for Willie Revillame’s variety-game show Wowowin which is set to air daily beginning February 1.
“Itinaon talaga natin ito sa umpisa ng taon because we are lining up the programs for this year. Ngayon, daily na from Monday to Friday and I have no doubt na mami-maintain ni Willie ang ratings ng program. Napakasipag at pinapanood ko yung mga shows niya kaya alam ko,” said Atty. Felipe L. Gozon.
WBR Entertainment’s Willie Revillame revealed that the success of Wowowin is because of the viewers who never fail to support him and his program. He’s also looking forward to bring more smiles to Filipino audiences. “Ang bida kasi rito ay yung mga tao. Sila ang nagpe-perform at nagkukwento ng buhay nila. Ang hangarin ng programa ay magbigay pag-asa. Yung success ng programa, hindi lang ito dahil sa akin kundi dahil sa ating lahat kasi tulong-tulong tayo dito. Sabi nga sa Eat Bulaga, hangga’t may bata, may Eat Bulaga. Dito hangga’t may nalulungkot, may Wowowin.”
Meanwhile, GMA First Vice President for Program Management Jose Mari Abacan said that they are pleased to announce that Willie’s program will air daily. “Sa totoo lang nung unang pumasok pa lang si Willie sa amin once a week, nakita na namin kung paano siya minahal ng tao and it translated to ratings at talagang ang lakas ng show kaya naisip namin na kung ganito ang reception ng tao at mas maraming napapaligaya, itodo na natin, from Monday to Friday.
The contract signing were attended by GMA Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R.
