GMA7's CEO Atty. Gozon expressed his delight for Revillame's move and admitted that the former rival from ABS-CBN has a very large following.
"We are pleased to have Willie Revillame's program in the Network. Willie has a very large following. Through our partnership with WBR Entertainment, GMA Network will be a part of the long awaited return of Willie Revillame on television."
Revillame, whose career started on GMA7 via "Lunch Date" felt it was like a homecoming. "Dito naman ako nagsimula sa GMA. Kumbaga, nag-abroad lang ako. Ngayon, nagbabalik na ko,"
WowoWin, the title of Revillame's soon to hosted show is a weekly program which will start airing on April 26, Sunday from 3:30-5:00pm.
