Since the network took off with a new brand, TV5’s rapid growth gave the television industry a new hope. Something that televiewers have hoped for years, a new network that would bring in more variety to the current spectrum of terrestrial TV channels.
But as new programs are introduced to the Happy Network, it seemed like televiewers are getting the same servings of shows. The network is airing nightly soap operas that compete with the already tele-serye saturated primetime blocks by rivals ABS-CBN and GMA.
Weekend programmings are also similar with the other two established networks, shows like Paparazzi, and PO5 are familiar formats.
Willing Willie would have been a breath of fresh air at prime time evenings, giving TV Patrol nd 24 Oras a run for their money, but the game show is no different from Wowowee.
The celebrity gossip oriented show Juicy, however, is doing well on its noontime slot. But with rumors coming from Willie Revillame that a noontime show is cooking up, will televiewers again be getting the same stuff?
TV viewers would love to see innovative, fresh, but still sensible programs on TV. We just wish TV5 will bring in more creative shows.
DJ Mo Twister, an announcer at Magic 89.9 DWTM Manila, is temporarily leaving from the primetime game show ‘Willing Willie’ as a segment host to attend to health reasons.
Mohan Gumatay, in real life, disclosed on TV5 Monday that his body needs to rest after showing sings of respiratory problems due to the rigorous hosting and announcing schedules he has.
“Kuya Wil kasi parang… Alam mo ‘pag nandito ko super, like, bigay talaga yung energy at yung voice at ‘pag umuuwi na ko sa gabi medyo nawawala na yung boses ko. Tapos may radio show pa ko na 6 AM at may gabi na radio show rin ako pagtapos ng ‘Willing Willie.’
Aside from his 6 am morning show on Magic 89.9, DJ Mo is co-hosting Juicy, a celebrity gossip noon time show, and a late night radio podcast show after Willing Willie. He does all of these shows on a daily basis.
WW host Willie Revillame has no qualms with the DJ leaving the show for the moment. Replacement is yet to be announced.
It is pretty normal for radio DJs to be having a lot of jobs, especially because radio’s income not enough. But even for a decently earning DJ Mo, who probably can be likened as the Ryan Seacrest of the Philippines, he, and everyone else still needs rest.
Do you believe DJ Mo Twister’s leave on Willing Willie temporary or permanent?
