Former ABS-CBN News Director ibinulgar kung paano siya gipitin ng ABS-CBN

Kamakailan lang ay naging laman ng social media ang tungkol sa pagsasara sa isa sa pinakamalaking estasyon sa bansa na ang ABS-CBN tv network.

Matatandaan na nag labas ng cease-and-desist order ang National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) na naguutos na tumigil sila sa pag-eeri.

Marami ang nagpahayag ng kanilang mga suporta sa naturang estasyon, pati narin ang mga kilalang mga artista ay naglabas na rin ng kanilang mga saloobin sa nangyaring pagsasara.

Ngunit may ilang mga dating empleyado rin ng naturang estasyon ang nag labas ng kanilang mga pahayag tungkol sa hindi tama na pagtrato umano ng naturang estasyon sa kanilang mga empleyado.

Isa na nga jan ang kilalang taga suporta ng Pangulo at batikang mamamahayag na si Jay Sonza na kung saan naging News Director ito ng ABS-CBN at naging tv program sa Mel & Jay.

Sa kanyang naging facebook post, ibinahagi ni Jay Sonza ang ginawang panggigipit umano ng Kapamilya network na makahanap ng bagong hanap-buhay.

Ang pinakamasakit pa umano sa ginawa ng ABS-CBN ay ang pagkakaso sa kanyang ng naturang estasyon na kung saan hinihingian pa umano siya ng P300 million na danyos.

BASAHIN ang kanyang facebook post sa ibaba:

January 1996. abs-cbn conferred me the LOYALTY & LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD.

The citation was for my dedicated 24/7 service to the Network as writer, deskman, reporter, program presenter, executive producer, supervising producer, news director and the network representative to various national, regional and international fora and award giving bodies.

It was also a recognition of my sacrifices during the series of Coup de Etat, the Cabanatuan-Baguio trage3dy, the mount pinatubo eruption, the 7 months long Marcos Tri1al in New York, my personal assistance in the establishment of the abs-cbn foundation and my pioneering television continuing news presentation – my brainchild: TV Patrol.

It was a recognition not only of decade long stint with the network, but also my 25 years in the industry at that time.

I was called to the podium to accept the award like this: Ladies and gentlemen, our “Kapamilya,” Mr. Jay Sonza. This was the first time the word “kapamilya” was ever uttered in the four corners of ABS-CBN Broadcast Centre.

A few days after, they illegally dismissed one of my managed professionals and radio & TV program Mel & Jay co-presenter, rendering me professionally and economically displaced and gagged.

Not content with that, three (3) months after, they sued me before the Quezon City Regional Tr1ial Court and sought for a P300 million damages.

Not happy still, they prevented me from seeking employment elsewhere by filing a Temporary Restraining Order.

They likewise sought a Permanent Injunction against me and my future employer, GMA Network Inc.

The latter happened 24 years ago on this very day.

* By God’s grace, the injunction was lifted, they eventually lost the case.
