WELL-loved Kapuso TV host Willie Revillame proudly announced that the country’s top-rating variety program Wowowin is extending the fun, suspense, and excitement until Saturdays via Wowowin Primetime.
The show has now more prizes to offer and will continue to bring bigger smiles and a deeper sense of hope to Pinoy households beginning February 15.
During the co-production contract signing last Monday (January 20), Willie expressed his gratitude to the Network and the people who never fail to support him as he continues his lifetime commitment in helping the less fortunate Filipinos.
“Dito [sa GMA] part ka ng pamilya, dito nayakap ka. Dito nararamdaman mo 'yung concern at nagkakaisa lahat kaya ang sarap ng feeling. Lahat pag nakakasalubong mo, binabati ka. Ito talaga yung pangalawang pamilya ko,” he said.
He continued, “Anim na araw na pong magpapasaya ang Wowowin. Anim na araw na pong magbibigay ng saya, pag-asa, ligaya, at pinaka-importante, yung pagmamahal natin sa ating kapwa. Everyday po yan.”
Meanwhile, GMA Network Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon is delighted that Willie remains a loyal Kapuso, “He is our Kapuso at talagang pagdating sa hosting, na-develop na ni Willie ang kanyang galing at siya'y tinatangkilik ng mga audience. Yun ang sikreto niya eh. Nagkaroon nga ng additional na every Saturday. We're expecting him to continue with more success.”
The program’s widely-followed The Will To Win segment will also make a comeback on Wowowin Primetime. In the reality-talent competition, people from different walks of life, without age limit, will be presenting their extraordinary talents onstage. Contestants may have the chance to win two million worth of cash prizes, a brand new car, and a house and lot.
“Lahat ng mga may talents na gustong sumali, ito na yung venue, ito na yung entablado para sa inyo. Wowowin na po ang kasalo ninyo sa inyong hapagkainan kasama ang inyong mga mahal sa buhay. Kasama ninyo kami tuwing Sabado,” he related.
