Looks like the talents keep pouring in for new TV station AMBS2 as talented host Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla signed with ALLTV. It's been on test broadcast in the last few days and programs are still being conceptualized, but thinking about what she's done in previous shows, it'll be easy to add in her hosting skills among other things she can do.
She was welcomed by AMBS President Ms. Maribeth Tolentino and says "She will be fun to see especially by our entertainment viewers. I could see how she's been loved by Moms as she's someone they can relate to. All I can say is welcome to ALLTV Mariel, and we're looking forward to work with you!"
The event was held at Mella Hotel last September 8 and she will be part of several talents that ALLTV has acquired over the past few weeks, ramping up their programming to start operations in the next few days. She was also with Boy Abunda, AMBS CFO Maryknoll Zamora and AMBS General Counsel Atty. TJ Mendoza during the short program. For those who don't know, Advanced Media Broadcasting System (AMBS Channel 2) is under Prime Assets Ventures, Inc. which is headed by Manuel Paolo Villar. This is under the Villar Group.
Mariel was ecstatic and says "I am so grateful for the opportunities given to me by ALLTV, and be assured I'll be part of shows that will certainly make people happy. That's all I want to do!"
She has also worked with Willie Revillame in previous shows, so her addition will be something familiar. Recently, Ciara Sotto, Toni Gonzaga, Paul Soriano and Anthony Taberna joined the network. ALLTV also is partnering with CNN Philippines to work on News Night their primetime news program airing weekdays.
As of this writing, AMBS has started operations on free to air TV. They are also available on digi boxes and Cable channels across the country.
