"Atom Araullo is leaving ABS-CBN after working for the network for over a decade," reports ABS-CBN News.
In a statement, Atom explained, "Although I am taking a new path, I have nothing but respect and gratitude for the company that helped me become the journalist I am today." He added, "To all the hardworking men and women of ABS-CBN, maraming maraming salamat."
ABS-CBN has accepted Atom's resignation. Their statement reads: "ABS-CBN has allowed journalist Atom Araullo to explore new interests in film, broadcast, and digital media outside of the company. Atom says the training and exposure he got from the network as reporter and TV host have equipped him to try out other opportunities in the media industry here and abroad."
The TV network went on to state that despite his decision to leave, Atom will "always remain a Kapamilya."
As everyone knows, one of Atom's soon-to-be-unveiled non-ABS-CBN projects is the movie Citizen Jake.
