While saying goodbye to his “Umagang Kay Ganda” family, journalist Atom Araullo broke into tears.
KAMI obtained a video of the emotional moment from the YouTube channel of ABS-CBN News.
His other co-hosts, Amy Perez and Winnie Cordero, also cried while saying goodbye to each other.
“Ito na yung pinaka mahirap na parte. Siyempre napakahirap naman mag ba-bye… It’s hard to let you go,” Winnie said.
“Ang lungkot, di ba? Malungkot at the same time natutuwa ako… Of course, may part sa amin na malungkot… Pero siyempre maligaya kami for you… Mamimiss ka namin,” Amy said.
The male hosts also praised Atom’s work ethic, humility and simplicity.
Atom has decided to leave the Kapamilya network in order to pursue his other interests and opportunities.
Here are some of the reactions of netizens:
“Malungkot talaga mag paalam lalo na kung pamilya na ang turing mo sa mga kasama mo. Sana bumalik ka din kc kasama kameng mga manonoog ng UKG na iniwan mo”
“I dont think Atom will transfer to another channel. Not with his character. A lot of opportunities had just came in his way that he had to see and venture out. He's still young and it is wise to explore his other interests at this time. He had proven how brave he is to take risks inspite of the stability as a journalist. Made me admire him more. But will surely miss him every morning.”
KAMI wants to remind you that learning to let go is very important since most things in life are temporary!
