UST supports ABS-CBN amidst franchise renewal crisis




The oldest Catholic University in Asia- the University of Santo Tomas has made it public that it is supporting the beleaguered ABS-CBN in its bid for the renewal of its legislative franchise.


“We are one with ABS-CBN in their commitment to continue their service to the Filipino people and the global community,” UST said in a statement on its social media accounts.

“The University of Santo Tomas wishes to extend its support to ABS-CBN, its media partner. ABS-CBN has won numerous awards for its entertainment, news, and public service programs at the USTv Students' Choice Awards. We offer our prayers for the network to be able to renew its franchise, and we are one with them in their commitment to continue their service to the Filipino people and the global community,” it said.

The Faculty and staff of its Journalism has also made their opinion public and it supports the tv network for the perceived attack on press freedom.
“The quo warranto petition against the country’s largest media network is a direct assault on this sacrosanct freedom,” reads their statement.

ABS-CBN’s franchise is set to expire on March 30, 2020. Currently there are 11 bills pending in the House of Representatives calling for its renewal.
