After bidding their emotional farewells as hosts of the noontime show Eat Bulaga in GMA, the iconic and comedic trio of Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey De Leon, collectively known as TVJ, are now part of TV5.
Joining them are the Dabarkads who consist of the former hosts of Eat Bulaga, including Maine Mendoza, Ryan Agoncillo, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Paolo Ballesteros, Wally Bayola, and Jose Manalo, to name a few.
They exited Eat Bulaga immediately after TVJ.
The Mediaquest Group released a statement saying that they entered into an agreement with TVJ to “produce content for TV5 and other Mediaquest platforms.”
“I’m happy that Tito, Vic, and Joey will now call TV5 their home,” said Jane Basas, president and CEO of Mediaquest Holdings.
TVJ and Dabarkads’ time slot and show have yet to be announced.
In the meantime, Eat Bulaga continues to air on GMA with its new hosts, Buboy Villar, Paolo Contis, Alexa Miro, and Cassy and Mavy Legaspi, among others.
