Eat Bulaga! hosts Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey De Leon (TVJ) are set to announce their new home this week.
In a June 5 interview on CNN Philippines’ The Source, Tito said that while they “have yet to decide” from at least four different networks on their possible transfer, the trio agreed to have it finalized soon so they can announce their decision to the public by Wednesday, June 7.
“If things work out the way we want it to, perhaps at least baka the first week of July, we would be able to air,” he said.
After the announcement, Eat Bulaga! staff members, including hosts, writers, sales, production, and cameramen, tendered their resignation.
Tito stressed in the same CNN interview that Eat Bulaga!’s producer TAPE Inc. does not own the program’s name as well as its segments. “For us, we follow, ika nga, the international rule. Even in the Supreme Court jurisprudence here in the Philippines and abroad, the creators are the owners.”
“So, we will fight for it, we will continue with Eat Bulaga!” he said.
