Stella Quimbo reveals she’s part of special group reviewing ABS-CBN’s franchise bid


The network’s fate is partly in her hands for now.

Marikina Rep. Stella Quimbo bared that she has been tapped to be part of a technical working group handling ABS-CBN’s franchise bid in the House, a highly controversial measure after weeks of hearings. She is expected to put her economics skills at work here.

“Found out this afternoon that I’m part of the TWG on the ABS-CBN franchise renewal. Humbled,” the politiko said. “Now going over the evidence and arguments presented. Challenged.”

What a day it would be!
