PTV 4 news anchor Kathy San Gabriel says she was fired without grounds

PTV 4 news anchor Kathy San Gabriel has claimed that she was terminated from the state-owned television network without prior notice or grounds.

San Gabriel aired her sentiments on a Facebook post last June 30, Friday. She posted:

“No words. I was informed by PTV management two days ago that today will be my last day at work.

“Kahit malungkot, tinanggap ko ang naging desisyon ng pamunuan ng network. Mamayang gabi sana ang huli kong newscast.

“Bagamat alam kong magiging emosyonal, gusto ko sanang kunin ang pagkakataong iyon para magpasalamat sa inyo sa pagsubaybay sa mahigit isang dekada kong pagbabalita sa PTV.

“Ngunit ikinalulungkot kong hindi ko magagawa iyon. Nagdesisyon po ang pamunuan ng People’s Television na huwag akong papasukin mamayang gabi.

“I was not given the dignity of a goodbye,” said San Gabriel, who worked for the government network for 11 years.

Last Thursday, June 29, San Gabriel confirmed that her last newscast would be on June 30.

She said: “Ang daming nagtatanong through PM at text message. Totoo po, I was just informed last night that my newscast tomorrow will be my last in PTV.”

“Maraming salamat sa inyong naging tiwala at pagsubaybay sa labing isang taon kong pagseserbisyo sa bayan,” San Gabriel added.

Prior to this, San Gabriel posted work-related thoughts about working in media.

One of the posts read: “Sabi ng isa kong kaibigan, Kahit manalo pa sila sa lotto nang sampung beses, di nabibili at nareretoke ang budhi. Good night.”

Another FB post stated: “Lagi kong sinasabi sa mga baguhan sa broadcasting na para magtagal ka sa industriyang ito, dapat gawa sa semento ang sikmura mo. Good morning, it’s a brand new day.”
