Could Atom Araullo Be Transferring to GMA Network?
Here's what we know so far.
(SPOT.ph) Kids from the '90s will remember a young Atom Araullo as part of Probe Productions and GMA News' 5 and Up, which aired until 2002. Years later, he made headlines for his daring coverage during Typhoon Yolanda in 2013.
Now, after a colorful career as a journalist in ABS-CBN, Araullo has announced on Umagang Kay Ganda that he will be leaving the network after 10 years. In a statement, he called it an "amazing adventure" and explained, "The time has come to explore emerging opportunities and challenges beyond the organization." He added that he has "nothing but respect and gratitude" for the network.
