It was a tough decision for comedy actress Pokwang to transfer network after being part of ABS-CBN for more than a decade.

In an interview with media for her upcoming TV5 show “Fill in the Blank,” the 49-year-old celebrity said she is thankful that ABS-CBN informed her in advance that should they lose their bid to renew a franchise, she is among those who will lose their contract with them.

The memo, Pokwang said, gave her time to look for other options.

“Hindi po ako puwedeng huminto. Hindi po ako puwedeng ngumanga (kasi) marami pong umaasa sa akin,” she said. “Ang laki po talaga ng nabago ng buhay ko at nagpapasalamat po ako nang sobra-sobra sa ABS-CBN, sa mga nagtiwala sa akin…”

It was July when ABS-CBN was denied a franchise. Few days later, it was announced that Pokwang will have projects on TV5.

“Buti na lang at may sumalo agad sa akin kaya sobrang thank you po talaga. Napakalaki po talagang tulong nito sa pamilya ko,” she said.
