MANILA -- "I am beyond heartbroken."

This was the reaction of actress and ABS-CBN chief content officer Charo Santos-Concio after lawmakers decided to deny the renewal of its franchise on Friday, keeping the network's main broadcast platforms off the air and places thousands of jobs at risk.

"I am beyond heartbroken. Hindi lang po para sa akin kundi para po sa aming libo-libong mga Kapamilya dito at sa buong mundo," Santos-Concio said, as she thanked all the network executives "for your courage, humility and strength. I am so proud of all of you!"

"Sa aking mga Kapamilya sa ABS-CBN na pinuno ang langit ng dasal, it is with great pride that I all call you Kapamilya," she added.

Santos-Concio, who also hosts the longest-running television drama anthology in the country "Maalaala Mo Kaya," remained hopeful that ABS-CBN will be back on the air. 
 
"Sa amin pong mga tagasubaybay, kayo po ang aming naging inspirasyon... hindi namin kayang suklian ang inyong pagmamahal. Maraming salamat po. Hinding-hindi po mabubura sa aming mga puso ang ating pinagsamahan! Naniniwala po ako na tayo po ay muling magkikita," she said.
