GOODBYE TV5 na ang dating executive na si Ms Wilma V. Galvante dahil wala na ang programang siya ang line producer.
Matatandaang umalis si Ms Wilma sa Kapatid Network bilang empleado at nag-line produce na lang siya ng programang Happy Truck ng Bayan na naging Happynas Happy Hour.
Napasahan kami ng sulat na ipinadala ni Ms Wilma sa mga naging staff niya.
“Greetings! On behalf of the team behind ‘Happy Truck ng Bayan’ that became ‘Happy Truck Happinas’, which became ‘Happynas Happy Hour’, let me thank you for this show.
“From its inception during our Six Thinking Hats workshop, this concept took quite a journey – from game, to variety to adult comedy, from day time to prime time – we’ve steered it every which way we could. I have not encountered such resiliency in a show as ‘Happy Truck ng Bayan’ and the way it has morphed.
“It has, indeed, worn many hats. Now, the signs could be pointing to exaggerated humor through satire – very timely in the context of current events and comical issues.
“Another thinking hat perhaps for the witty guys in News this time. HappyNuts Happy Hour, late night. I pray that you succeed in all your plans for TV5, moving forward. You will always have our continued support.
“Again, from the happy peeps of HHH, maraming salamat! Wilma.”
Maraming nalungkot na staff ng programa dahil nga ‘yung iba ay wala namang trabaho na malilipatan bukod pa sa walang opening sa TV5.
Nabanggit din sa amin mismo ng taga-TV5, “mas concentrated kasi talaga ang management sa news and sports program nila kasi mas kumikita talaga at mas pinanonood.
Anyway, may investor na kausap daw ang management kaya lets wait and see na lang kung anong mangyayari sa entertainment department kung magpo-produce pa sila ng show.
