In an interview with Philippine Star GMA Network Chief Executive Officer, Atty. Felipe Gozon happily disclosed its outstanding sales on May due to the sustained leadership in the Natioanal Urban ratings. He said their April revenues are good, “but May is really fantastic.” “We are over P1 billion in TV sales for Channel 7 alone so far, and this is not even an election year,” Gozon added.
He explained that GMA’s revenues suffered a setback last year due to the increase in advertising rates by the network. “We had to increase the rates. The advertisers reacted. Everytime you increase the prices, that’s the reaction. But they came back to us,” he said.
GMA Network continue to lead in the AGB Nielsen's NUTAM with its daytime line-up outmatching rivals from ABS-CBN. However its prime time line-up remianed inferior as against ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida line up.
