In a private meeting yesterday May 24, Willie Revillame apologized to ABS-CBN management for his outburst on Wowowee last May 4. In that particular episode, Willie had threatened to resign if ABS-CBN did not give in to his demand that radio commentator and The Buzz co-host Jobert Sucaldito be fired for airing negative comments about Wowowee over the latter’s radio program. Willie has since been on leave from the leading noontime show.
In an official statement, ABS-CBN has expressed its acceptance of Willie’s apology. The network also announced that Willie will continue to be on indefinite leave but will remain under contract with the Kapamilya network. (Willie’s contract is valid until 2011.)
ABS-CBN also revealed that there will be further discussions with Willie about his work with the network as well as the future of Wowowee.
