Loss of license in 2020

After a 25-year license officially expired on May 4, 2020, the station, which was considered critical of the government, lost its broadcasting license. President Rodrigo Duterte had previously threatened several times to deny the broadcaster the license renewal. Former Vice President Jejomar Binay recalled that the station had previously been closed: “We can argue about who bears more responsibility for closing ABS-CBN. But we cannot deny that the day the station went off air 48 years ago was the day democracy died. ”Back in September 1972, Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law and then ruled the country dictatorially until 1986 .
