ABS-CBN Off The Air

One of the Philippines largest and most influential broadcasting ABS-CBN networks has been forced off the air.

Media company ABS-CBN, known for its unflinching coverage of the Duterte administration, was ordered to close by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).

The decision to renew the station’s license, condemned by critics as an attack on the country’s free press, after its broadcast license, which is granted by the Congress of the Philippines expired.

Duterte has frequently threatened to take ABS-CBN off the air, including during a swearing-in ceremony in November 2019 when he said they would be “out” in 2020, according to CNN Philippines.
