“The grant of a franchise is a privilege that carries immense responsibility.”

Pinangunahan ni Grace Poe ang pag-apruba ng committee/panel ng Senate Committee on Public Services sa franchise applications ng apat na broadcasting networks. Naging mabilis ang filing proces ng broadcasting companies dahil sa agarang aksyon ni Poe.

Ang apat na broadcasting networks na naaprubahan ay ang Cignal TV,Nation Broadcasting Corporation, Real Radio Network, at ang Advanced Media Broadcasting System, Inc.

Pinaalalahanan sila ni Poe na “The grant of a franchise is a privilege that carries immense responsibility.”

“Kapag hindi ninyo nagampanan ng maayos ang layuning pagsilbihan ang publiko, maaaring tanggalin o bawiin ng Kongreso ang inyong prangkisa,” dagdag pa niya.

Naaprubahan ang mga broadcasting networks dahil sila ay tinaguriang “most qualified”, ayon kay Poe.

Pahayag pa niya, “That is why you ought to continuously improve, upgrade and expand your services to the benefit and satisfaction of the public. In view of our mandate and responsibility to issue franchises, Congress has to ensure that only the most qualified be granted this privilege.”
