Maria Ressa Quits ABS-CBN

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

For the last six years, Maria Ressa heads the News and Current Affairs of this network. On Monday night, she released a statement saying that she is no longer renewing her contract which expires in early January. And on top of that, since she has remaining leave credits, she is going on terminal leave effective November 15. A lot of people are surprised about this decision but as Ressa puts it.”

There are speculations about this sudden resignation but Ressa’s official statement was vague about the reasons. I still believe her contribution to the network was notable, especially with Probe Team and CNN background, so I wish her well as she starts another era in her career.
