Get ready because television personality Vice Ganda is launching his own digital media network!
Taking a page out of Oprah Winfrey’s book, Vice announced that his network will officially become a space for him to share exclusive access to his shows, news, games, and so much more with his loyal fanbase.

Speaking to the press about his new venture, he revealed that ABS-CBN bosses Carlo Katigbak and Cory Vidanes, among others, had advised Kapamilya stars to think outside the box to reach their audiences following the denial of a fresh franchise for the Network.
“Sabi nila gumawa kayo ng paraan para maka-reach out sa publiko. ‘Di kayo pwedeng mawala sa kamalayan ng audience. Ang dami pang pwedeng gawin sa digital. This is the challenge and as artists we have to serve our purpose na pasayahin pa ang tao,” he said.
Vice is already ready to premiere his website, Viceganda.com.ph, on July 24, Friday starting with episodes of his talk show “Gandang Gabi Vice.” He also shared that a lot more content will be coming soon–including a 10-episode sitcom, an interactive game show, a karaoke challenge, and documentaries.
He also hopes that he will eventually be able to help employ some of the displaced ABS-CBN Network workers as well as provide opportunities for fellow stand-up comedians whose livelihoods were affected due to the suspension of live performances.
