More Than Just A Morning Show
A few personal thoughts on how the team of Alagang Magaling with the bosses (Mr. Jaime “Jimi” Lim, Mr. Egay Yap, Mr. Nelson Chua and Mr. Manny Berbano) works together… I say it is a family. The bonding does not end when the camera stops rolling or the video editor finishes his material. Actually, it only begins there. The crew shares to
each other their personal problems, stories and ideas. It is a team that accepts mistakes and changes, a team that is open-minded and does not blame each other for one’s error and a team that knows the line between respect and joking around with the bosses. The bosses treat the crew with utmost respect and gratitude for the making the show of Alagang Magaling come to life. Behind the excellent ratings of the show, is a team or should I say a family that does not only think of their own desires instead, forefront the impact that they could leave to the audience and to the industry.
