DJ Chacha, or Czarina Balba in real life, expressed her heartbreak over the imminent shutdown of ABS-CBN’s radio station MOR 101.9 following the network’s franchise denial.

Recently, ABS-CBN Corporation announced that it will close down many of its subsidiaries as well as retrench workers after the Congress denied its renewal of franchise.

DJ Chacha said that on August 30, she will be going off air along with the radio station, after 12 years of service.

“Mahal ko po ang MOR. Kasi 12 years, 32 years old ako ngayon, halos kalahati ng buhay ko kasama ko ang 101.9 family ko,” she said.

The DJ added that this is not just work for her, and that she cannot believe she has to say goodbye to her first love and dream job.

“Masakit na mawalan ka ng trabaho, pero mas masakit isipin ‘yong istasyon na ipinuhunan mo ‘yong pawis mo, bago kami naging No.1 FM station, ‘yong hirap na pinagdaanan ng buong MOR team, kasabay pa doon na hindi mo na makikita mga katrabaho mo,” she said.

DJ Chacha has always been vocal against the denial of ABS-CBN’s franchise, calling out Sen. Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa months back for his stance against the network.

Following ABS-CBN’s announcement of subsidiary closure, the radio jock also expressed via Instagram post her sympathy with other employees who will also be losing their jobs effective end of August.

“Sending hugs to all the Kapamilya [employees] who are also experiencing the same pain that I’m going through now,” she added.

12 years na pala ako sa 101.9! Parang kailan lang. Nangangarap lang ako noon na makapasok sa kahit saang TV o Radio station. Salamat sa kumpanyang unang nagtiwala sa kakayahan ng isang Fresh Graduate na tulad ko. Salamat sa mga boss ko na patuloy na naniniwala sa kakayahan ko. Salamat sa mga tagapakinig na mula noon hanggang ngayon hindi nagsasawang marinig ang tinig ko. Salamat sa pamilya at mga kaibigan ko na laging nakaalalay sa tuwing ako ay nadadapa. Higit sa lahat, Salamat Panginoon. Sa lahat ng mga biyaya. Ikaw ang dahilan kung bakit nandito ako at kung bakit tumagal ako ng labindalawang taon. Gabayan mo pa ako sa mga susunod pang mga taon. I lift it all to you! ?? #grateful #12years #kapamilyaforever
