Pokwang is now a GMA talent.

The host and comedian signed her contract in a virtual event on Friday, June 18, which was also attended by GMA executives. GMA Artist Center posted photos of Pokwang from the contract signing on Instagram, including the hashtag #WelcomeKapusongPokwang in the post.

Pokwang was previously a talent of ABS-CBN, her home network for 15 years. She lost her contract in 2020, following the rejection of ABS-CBN’s franchise application in July of that year.

In September 2020, she became co-host of short-lived talk show Chika Besh, which aired on TV5.

Pokwang rose to fame after winning the talent search segment of now-defunct ABS-CBN comedy-gag program Yes, Yes Show! She has since appeared on a number of shows, and even won awards, including two Best Comedy Actress awards at the PMPC Star Awards for Television. –
