Former News Director reveals ABS-CBN illegally used money from its foundation to construct a new building, buy cars


Veteran broadcaster and former news director at ABS-CBN Jay Sonza has once again stirred the pot after he revealed more of the shenanigans that happened at the Kapamilya network during his stint as one of its top executives.

According to an article by The Asian Policy, Jay Sonza was interviewed on TAMBAYAN SA DWIZ yesterday when he spilled the truth about ABS-CBN Foundation.

He slammed the network for bombarding the airwaves with the network's supposed contribution to millions of Filipino through its foundation calling it LIES and pure propaganda. ABS-CBN has been airing reports of its contribution to the public in an attempt to gain public sympathy as it faces sanctions for its alleged violations.


"Sa totoo lang, eh wala namang pera ang ABS-CBN na nilalabas. Ang mga naitutulong ay galing naman yan sa mga donors eh," Sonza said.

Sonza then went on detailing how he and his former co-anchor Mel Tiangco paved the way for ABS-CBN Foundation's creation.

"Bakit ko alam ito, eh wala naman talagang foundation ang ABS eh. Ganito 'yun, nung ni-launch namin yang TV Patrol noong 1989, tatlong programa yun na pinagsama namin. News, buhay artista at tsaka public service yung Lingkod Bayan.


Nagsimula po sa Lingkod Bayan yan, may isang lumapit sa amin isang bata, lumaki ulo, sabi ni Mel tulongan natin, eh di nanawagan, maganda yung pagka-gawa ng istorya, eh andaming nag donate. Imbes na ang kailangan ay 1,800 lang, ang pumasok na pera nasa 80,000.

Araw-araw nagfe-feature kami lumalaki-lumalaki hanggang kinalaunan may dumadating na malalaking tao na ayaw magma banggit ng pangalan," he said.

He also revealed who donated millions to their cause which involved a certain Don Fernando Zobel. He also recalled how his conversation with him went.


"Hijo, halika, gusto ko yang ginagawa n'yo ni Mel Tiangco, eto 1 million, kayo na bahala kayo ano gagawin d'yan," he said.

As the money continued to pour which now pegged at millions, it was only then that the network's management decided to form a real foundation thus the birth of ABS-CBN Foundation Inc..

Billions came and they constructed new buildings

Sonza also revealed that when the huge earthquake shattered Nueva Ecija and Baguio, the foundation received billions of pesos from donors and that the TV network never took any cash from its own coffers to extend any help.


Every peso that ABS-CBN gave came from private individuals and companies.

"Kaya nung umalis kami sa ABS-CBN, yung pera ng foundation, bilyones. Bilyones yan puro donations at walang perang galing mismo sa ABS," Sonza revealed.

Sonza went on and detailed how the TV executives allegedly used money from ABS-CBN Foundation to build a new building and buy cars.


"Tapos nagpatayo sila ng building sa kanto ng mother ignacia, dun ako umangal sabi ko bakit kailangan galing sa foundation yung ano... kung kami nga kung kumukuha ng gamot galing sa Lingkod Bayan ay binabayaran pa namin, eh kayo magpapatayo pa ng building na may helipad," Sonza said.

"Pagkatapos nung nabalitaan ko, bumili daw sila ng mga sasakyan. Service daw para sa Bantay Bata. Sabi ko hindi naman yan ang pinaglalaanan ng mga taong nagdo-donate. Tapos nadulas pa yung taga accounting, sabi pa sir may tseke kaming pinalabas kahapon 1 million, donation daw ni Gabby sa alumni association ng Ateneo. Sabi ko bakit kayo pumayag? Sabi lang nila eh sila may-ari ng foundation eh," Sonza added.


Shocked with Sonza's explosive revelations, the hosts quickly quipped that the executives might have committed serious violations there not and broke the trust of the public.

Jay Sonza then urged the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to conduct a thorough investigation regarding the matter.

Sonza also cautioned the public for believing the propaganda that ABS-CBN is spreading right now about the services they have rendered to the Filipino public.
