KUALA LUMPUR: TV host and entrepreneur Datuk AC Mizal is no longer associated with Awesome TV.
He said that his wife Datin Emylia Rosnaida and him were no longer collaborating with the station, but were in the midst of setting up their own TV station soon.
According to the 48-year-old, despite the fact that there had been various parties interested in working together with them, he had to pull out from the project due to some problems.
“Since I hold a broadcasting licence, we can decide who we want to collaborate with. At the same time, we also believe that we cannot withhold Awesome TV from going ahead with its own plan,” he said.
He added: “We didn’t reveal our decision to the public before this as a show of respect towards the station’s decision of going ahead with the plan.”
“But seeing that many are confused of our status, we have to announce that we are no longer partners with Awesome TV. Our focus now is on our on station TV which we hope to begin its operations this year,” shared AC of his new project which he plans to call AC TV.
As the capital to kick off the project is expected to be about RM100 million, he is also on the lookout for partners for the project, which he hopes to also be a hub for artistes and media practitioners.
