Manila Standard : After snubbing Jessica Soho, Bongbong Marcos to appear in Boy Abunda show

23 January 2022

By Manila Standard

Presidential aspirant Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., is not skipping his interview with TV host Boy Abunda. He has agreed to face the country’s “King of Talk” in a one-on-one interview, which will be streamed on The Boy Abunda Talk Channel on YouTube and Kapamilya Channel tomorrow, Jan. 25.

 The former senator trended on social media over the weekend when he opted not to be interviewed by Jessica Soho as his campaign perceives the multi-award-winning veteran journalist to be “biased against the Marcoses.”

In response, GMA Network released a statement saying that “throughout her career, Soho has consistently been named the most trusted media personality in the Philippines by both local and foreign organizations” quoting the University of Oxford and Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism as sources.

 Meanwhile, in The 2022 Presidential One-On-One Interviews with Boy Abunda, BBM will tackle the most pressing and relevant issues affecting the nation today.

 The interview follows Abunda’s yesterday’s interview with Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson.

The week-long special, presented by ABS-CBN and E.R.A., will also feature Vice President Leni Robredo (Jan. 26, Wednesday), Manila Mayor Isko Moreno (Jan. 27, Thursday), and Sen. Manny Pacquiao (Jan. 28, Friday).

The 2022 Presidential One-On-One Interviews with Boy Abunda first streams on The Boy Abunda Talk Channel on YouTube at 6:00 p.m., and airs at 11:00 p.m. on Kapamilya Channel. More interview specials will be seen on Jan. 30 and Feb. 6, Sunday, at 11:00 p.m. on Kapamilya Channel.

 In the special interview series, Abunda sits down one-on-one with each of the five leaders to get to know them and their platforms in the hopes of guiding the Filipino voters in making the big decision of choosing the next president of the Philippines. Expect Boy to grill each of the five presidential candidates on no-holds-barred questions about their positions and perspectives on the various issues confronting the country today.
