TV Crisis Binds Mar, Korina

SENATOR Mar Roxas stands solidly behind TV broadcaster Korina Sanchez amidst the controversies hounding her.

"I am solidly behind Korina in whatever decision she will make with regards to her career," said the senator who has been openly admitting his serious affair with Ms. Sanchez. "I will never leave her in times of trouble."

Roxas maintains that the most recent crisis of Korina Sanchez will only bind them stronger.

The decision of ABS-CBN caught the neophyte senator by surprise, considering the fact that his girlfriend is a big asset to the company.

She was reportedly seen in a serious huddle with some GMA-7 bigwigs after the lady broadcaster was replaced by Karen Davila in the former's highly rated "TV Patrol" show.

Sanchez has denied the alleged meeting with GMA-7 honchos. No meeting with the GMA people ever took place, she said, but admitted she is still waiting for the ABS-CBN management to finalize her status as far as the "TV Patrol" program is concerned.

Sanchez clarified that her decision will be based on the management's plans and final decisions on the issue.

The primetime program has reportedly slipped to second place, with GMA-7 the number one. Known as the Queen of ABS-CBN, her replacement has the management stamp, starting with Luchi Cruz-Valdez, the network's vice president for Current Affairs.

Roxas said that the lady broadcaster is tough enough to handle the crisis as he expressed optimism that everything will turn out right for her.

"I am surprised and also saddened. I am solidly behind Korina in whatever decision she will make with regards to her career. She is a professional. And she is also one tough lady. She has weathered many crises in her life."

"There are ups and downs in every career. What has happened between her and her employer, that's between them, and that is something she will have to deal with considering her professional and personal goals. Whatever she decides to do, I am solidly behind her and I will support her decision," Roxas assured.

Roxas maintained that with or without her show in ABS-CBN, his concern and feeling for Ms. Sanchez will never be affected.
