Star studded!!! Manny Villar wooing Noli De Castro, Korina Sanchez, Arnold Clavio, Luchi Cruz-Valdez to join ‘Capamella’ network


Billionaire and real estate mogul is now making his move to make his recent acquisition a profitable media player in the country.

A news article from Bilyonaryo, says that Manny Villar wants to form a powerhouse news team for his Tv station and this would be pirating some of the big names the industry has to offer.

Villar wants to sign up former TV Patrol news anchors Noli De Castro and Korina Sanchez, TV5 news chief Luchi Cruz-Valdez, and GMA News TV and radio anchor Arnold Clavio.

Bilyonaryo’s Babbler said Villar is required to establish a news division after his Advanced Media Broadcasting System (AMBS) was granted Channels 2 and 16, the frequencies previously assigned to ABS-CBN.

Quoting a Babbler, Bilyonaryo said De Castro declined Villar’s offer but the businessman hasn’t given up on convincing his former Senate colleague to leave ABS-CBN.

De Castro resigned from ABS-CBN late last year to run for senator. He went back after shelving his candidacy, though now on a limited capacity since he’s no longer hosting TV Patrol.

Sanchez, meanwhile, is the host of the eponymous show, “Rated Korina,” which airs on TV5, Kapamilya Channel, A2Z and One PH.

In a virtual press briefing on February 8, Sanchez said “all my doors are open” when asked about the possibility of joining Villar’s network.

Cruz-Valdez, meanwhile, is a veteran of broadcast news production, having worked at both GMA and ABS-CBN before transferring to TV5 in 2010. A Babbler said Villar is also looking at pirating TV5 news anchor and producer Jove Francisco to join the AMBS news team.

Villar’s target of hiring Clavio, however, reportedly appears to be a long shot because he’s considered a news icon at GMA. The Babbler, however, said the bilyonaryo businessman is determined to “form the best of both Kapamilya and Kapuso talents.”
