Boy Abunda defends partner Bong Quintana’s PAGCOR position, says Quintana was a natural choice

24 Oras report

In a 24 Oras report, TV host Boy Abunda defended his partner Bong Quintana and his new position as the assistant vice president for entertainment of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR). Abunda said Quintana was not appointed to the post because of his connections to President Noynoy Aquino’s family. "Bong was the director of Wanders and Flow (PAGCOR theatrical shows). He has been with PAGCOR for a long time. He was a natural choice."

Abunda was "not happy" when Quintana joined PAGCOR, he told 24 Oras. He said he was left with his partner’s workload in Backroom, his talent management agency where Quintana used to be vice president.

In the 24 Oras report, Abunda also defended his designation as the ambassador of the Philippine International Arts Festival by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts. "It’s a very small position. I will only handle press conferences. This has nothing to do with the administration." He is not looking for a government position, he said, because he is busy working on four shows and handling over 25 talents.
