KBP on Willing Willie

Fr Robert Reyes led a protest march on the Kapisanan ng mga Broadkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) head office demanding for action regarding the alleged Child Abuse incident in Willing Willie, last March 12.

KBP Chairman Hermano Basbano went down and met the group to inform that a letter, dated March 29, was sent to TV5 and Willie Revillame asking them on why they should not be penalized for violating the KBP Code of Ethics. Article 28, Sec 2 of the said code states that, “Persons who appear in live programs shall not be embarrassed, insulted, ridiculed, harrassed or humiliated in whatever manner.” KBP is awaiting for reply and TV5 and Revillame are expected to submit their explanations no later than April 7.

” KBP assures all parties that they will act diligently & fairly in accordance with duly established standards in the broadcast industry”, says Flordeliz Abanto, one of persons present in the protest march. She added that complainants are invited for the investigations KBP would handle.

Last Friday, Willie Revillame announced that his show Willing Willie will go on a hiatus for two-weeks amidst the unrest in social networking sites calling for penalizing the show for the Dancing Janjan incident. TV5 announced that Willing Willie will be replaced by Primetime Sine and Magic Gimik as they undergo conversations with DSWD and other government agencies. Revillame, on the other hand, will take a vacation.
