“The Network had already taken the necessary steps to immediately rectify the matter. We assure the public that a similar mistake will not happen again and that PTV4 shall continue to be faithful in its mandate to inform, inspire, and empower the Filipino people through relevant, trustworthy, and world-class quality television programs and services,” the statement added.
