It will be a different journey for Ogie Alcasid as he has decided to transfer to TV5, but the good thing is he got the blessings of his former bosses in GMA-7.
In a statement sent to Yahoo! Philippines OMG!, GMA Corporate Communications consultant Butch Raquel said:
As Ogie Alcasid moves on to explore new grounds, GMA Network, his home for almost 2 decades, wishes him all the best. We thank him for being a part of the Network’s success all these years.
His achievements as a singer, songwriter, comedian, host and actor make Ogie the icon that he is now. And the Kapuso Network is proud to have been with him throughout this journey.
Alcasid’s contract with the Kapuso network expired last June 30.
Reportedly, he will return to “Tropang Trumpo,” the gag show where he first started his T.V. career. He was also assigned by TV5 chairman Manny Pangilinan to head the Music Department of the network, where. he is expected to write the theme songs of various TV5 shows.
However, Alcasid cleared that under the contract, he is still free to write theme songs for GMA-7 and Star Cinema.
He refused to divulge the other details of his contract with the Kapatid network.
