ABS-CBN’s Christmas station ID “Ikaw ang Liwanag at Ligaya” aired on Tuesday, December 1 right after its flagship news program, TV Patrol.
The video featured ABS-CBN’s biggest names – both from news and entertainment – giving back to individuals and communities whose stories populated headlines and social media during the coronavirus pandemic.
Joining their stars and ABS-CBN’s news team were the network’s top executives, Carlo Katigbak, Mark Lopez, and Cory Vidanes, who each put a star on the Christmas tree at the end of the video.
The lyric video of the song premiered on November 27 with artists led by Regine Velasquez, Ogie Alcasid, Lea Salonga, Sarah Geronimo, Martin Nievera, and Gary Valenciano.
It’s been a difficult year for ABS-CBN.
In the middle of the pandemic, and lockdowns which forced TV productions into abrupt stops, the network went off air after its legislative franchise expired. A House committee eventually denied ABS-CBN a new franchise, forcing the media giant to retrench thousands of employees. – Rappler.com
