It can now be told that Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla has joined ALLTV, the premiere TV station of Manny Villar-operated Advanced Media Broadcasting System (AMBS).
According to AMBS President Maribeth Tolentino, the versatile television host, endorser, and commercial model will make ALLTV viewing more exciting as she takes her role as TV host and actress to a new level.
“Mariel will surely add more fun, and entertainment that every viewer, especially moms, can relate to. We are looking forward to working with you, Mariel. Welcome to your new ALLTV family,” she said during the contract signing at Mella Hotel last Sept. 8.
Mariel signed on Thursday a contract with ALLTV, which is under the Prime Assets Ventures, Inc. led by Manuel Paolo Villar.
Also present during the contract signing were Padilla’s talent manager and talk show host, Boy Abunda, AMBS CFO Maryknoll Zamora, and AMBS general counsel Atty. TJ Mendoza.
“Thank you so much to ALLTV. I am so excited for the many possibilities. Like what Ms. Beth said, ‘Let’s make a beautiful show. Let us make our viewers happy’,” Mariel said, quoting Tolentino. “All I want to do is make people happy.”
Abunda, who discovered Mariel before she became a TV personality, is excited about the “infinite possibilities” with Mariel now being part of ALLTV.
Rodriguez started her career at the age of 15 as a commercial model. She is married to actor-turned-politician, Sen. Robinhood Padilla. They have two daughters, Maria Isabella and Maria Gabriella.
Apart from Rodriguez, TV host, singer, and comedian Willie Revillame, the country’s multi-media star and actress Toni Gonzaga and her husband, multi-awarded director/script writer/producer Paul Soriano and broadcaster Anthony Taberna, and accomplished theatre and movie actress, Ciara Sotto, have joined the new TV network.
ALLTV has also teamed up with CNN Philippines for the airing of its flagship news program, News Night, at 6 p.m. from Monday to Friday.
ALLTV airs on Sept. 13. It is available on Channel 2 on free-to-air TV and Planet Cable, Channel 16 on digital TV, and Channel 35 on Cignal TV and Sky Cable.
