There were online rumors in the past that Atom Araullo is planning to leave ABS-CBN. Today, he made a revelation (watch the video at the bottom of the post). Did he resign from his work? Is he really leaving ABSCBN? Will he move to the rival network – GMA?
The past rumor was speculated because he was allegedly vocal in his own opinion. As a journalist, are you always expected to present both sides of the argument without being bias whatsoever? Can you not give your own viewpoint at all?
Did he really resign from ABSCBN?
Atom claims the time has come for him to explore emerging opportunities and challenges beyond the organization. He expressed his gratitude to ABS-CBN who had helped catapult his career in journalism over the years.
Mr. Araullo was tearful when he said goodbye to his team and fans during his morning TV show – Umagang Kay Ganda (UKG). ABS-CBN statement as well as Atom’s gave an impression that there was no animosity in this planned separation.
Now that Atom Araullo has resigned from his job at ABS-CBN news department, some questions have been raised. Once he leave ABS-CBN, which network will take him in? Will he work at GMA 7? Or will he go back to ABC 5 as a news reporter? Has he been offered a news casting role or will he take on a career in acting? Will his fans support him wherever he goes and whatever he does?
We will all have to wait to find out the answerd to alll the above questions. Apparently, Atom Araullo as a cheduled press conference next week. We will find out more when we hear his statement.
Looking back from previous celebrities, we know what happened to those that switched TV networks in the past. There were some success stories but there were failures as well. Some went back to their original network and others just jump from one network to another taking on whatever possible role they can get.

This TV exclusivity to either ABSCBN or GMA is very interesting and intriguing at the same time. Although as a newscaster, this makes perfect sense. Where do you think Atom’s future career will be? Is his decision to leave a good move? Only time will tell. Let’s all wish him well in his plans.
