More athletes turned analysts and TV personalities expressed their gratitude to ABS-CBN Sports, which was home to multiple sports leagues and programs on S+A and LIGA such as “The Score” and “TBH.”

Former UAAP stars Alyssa Valdez, Charo Soriano, Ayel Estranero, and Anne Remulla thanked their ABS-CBN Sports family for welcoming them as mainstay volleyball analysts of “The Score” for different leagues such as the UAAP and PVL.

During the show’s farewell get-together via Zoom, the athletes expressed how ABS-CBN Sports went beyond just telling their stories as players but also highlighted their expertise on their sport and honed their skills in broadcasting.

Alyssa, who has had multiple stints in the organization as a host and analyst, said she felt right at home with the people she worked with.

“Maraming salamat po sa pag turing sa akin na parang isa niyong anak at isang totoong Kapamilya,” she shared.

Charo, another former Lady Eagle, acknowledged all the efforts of the group which has led to unforgettable moments in the sports community.

“The work that you have done has paved the way for the lives, not only of the athletes, but of the millions of Filipino viewers and sports enthusiasts alike. Thank you so much for believing in us, in believing in volleyball,” explained the volleyball analyst.

Ayel is also grateful that she is able to look back at her UAAP career with the UP Fighting Maroons because of the coverage and support given by the network.

“Thank you for capturing all the highs and lows of my volleyball career. ABS-CBN Sports played an integral role in my growth as an athlete and a person. Thank you for giving value to me and my talent.”

Like Ayel, Anne is thankful for the trust given to her by S+A as a volleyball analyst, where she was able to share her knowledge of the game.

The former DLSU Lady Spiker said “I feel grateful that I was able to work with the best in the industry and more importantly, people who share the same passion as I do.”

For the “TBH” squad of Ponggay Gaston, Eya Laure, Mich Cobb, and Rosie Rosier, their time as hosts of their digital talk show may have been quick but they will always remember the lessons and experience they gained in talking about timeless and relevant topics.

“So grateful for everything. In a short span I learned so much,” shared the Ateneo Lady Eagle about their show which launched last June.

Fellow UAAP stars Eya and Mich are also both extremely appreciative to the “TBH” team. “Thank you po sa lahat ng opportunity na binigay niyo po,” they said. While Rosie adds, “Really grateful for giving me a chance to work with and be part of the ABS-CBN family!”

Meanwhile, former DLSU football players turned analysts Natasha Alquiros and Marielle Benitez said that they will always cherish the camaraderie they established with their colleagues.

Natasha shares, “I am very grateful for the opportunity I had. A lot of who I am today is because of all the experiences I had with ABS-CBN. Thank you for helping me grow,” said Natasha, who was also an original host of “Upfront.”

“It has truly been an honor and a privilege. I don’t think I’ll ever tire saying how grateful I am for everyone in sports, for all the experiences on and off cam,” added Marielle.

These athletes played a big role in the success of the volleyball and football coverage of ABS-CBN Sports, which will halt its operations following the nonrenewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise to broadcast. Look back at their journey and work on “The Score” and previous episodes of “TBH” by watching these on the ABS-CBN Sports YouTube channel.
