After initial news developments prior had Cory Quirino of CQ Global Quest opting to transfer to TV5 for the network coverage of Miss World Philippines 2016, the image above (showing Ms Cory shaking hands with GMA-7’s Joey Abacan) should be proof that the national pageant will stay put at GMA-7 with Viva Entertainment still in the partnership.
Business will always be business. And whoever offers the better deal (and the wider network reach) prevails in the end, in my opinion.
Now the more baffling question is, will the organization be able to assemble an acceptable number of Official Candidates for 2016? With only eight (8) ladies showing up for the General Screening, will more sign-ups follow to add up to the number? I am hoping so. 🙂
