Noli de Castro immediately became trending on social media because of his emotional speech before ABS-CBN officially signed off.
KAMI learned that the said news anchor was still able to interview people and go to work amid the “cease and desist” order against his network.
In the latter part of the last episode of "TV Patrol", the veteran broadcast-journalist stated that the network owes everything to the people for their overwhelming support.
He also emotionally quipped that even though ABS-CBN will sign off, its employees will not be silenced by the attack on the freedom of the press.
“Bayan, mga kapamilya, ilan dekada rin tayong nagkasama. Utang na loob namin sa inyo na tinanggap ninyo kami sa inyong mga tahanan gabi-gabi. Naging malaking bahagi na kami ng inyong buhay, karamay sa mga panahon ng kalamidad at paghihirap…” he uttered.
“Hindi man na-renew ang aming prangkisa at pinatitigil ang ating broadcast, nangangako kami sa inyo, hindi kami mananahimik sa pag-atakeng ito sa ating demokrasya at sa malayang pamamahayag. Sa pinakamalaking dagok at hamon sa aming kompanya at sa aming hanapbuhay, hinding-hindi namin kayo tatalikuran, kabayan,” he concluded.
