The senator met the three nominees of AMS—Rolly ‘Lakay’ Gonzalo, president of the Liga ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas and vice-president of the National Press Club; film director Romy Suzara; and actor-director Leo G. Martinez.
An actor-producer who has the interests of the movieworkers at heart, the senator was briefed on the programs of the AMS regarding the marginalized movie workers and, in return, he expressed he was totally supporting these causes and concerns.
The senator was also informed that the Alyansa is also committed to the basic freedom of expression that both media and showbiz must uphold to ensure that our citizens will fully enjoy their rights to be informed and entertained.

The AMS is now in the process of collating the bio-data of all persons working in both media and showbiz for the official files of the AMS. These will serve as the guide in the various programs the Alyansa will push through in Congress.
The Alyansa has initially targeted a four-point program of action that will focus on housing, health care, livelihood and scholarship for members of media and showbiz and their dependents.
