ABS-CBN execs appear at House hearing on network's franchise

ABS-CBN executives- (left to right) former ABS-CBN Corporate Services Group head Mark Nepomuceno, group financial officer Rick Tan, chairman Mark Lopez, president and CEO Carlo Katigbak, chief strategy officer Raymund Miranda, and COO for broadcast Cory Vidanes- appear at the first joint hearing of the House of Representatives committees on legislative franchises and good government and public accountability to tackle the renewal of ABS-CBN's franchise on Tuesday. Held amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, the executives and lawmakers physically convened at the Batasang Pambansa in Quezon City with all the necessary safety precautions to tackle the bills, which would allow the broadcast company to go back on air after shutting down on May 5.
