Missing the PBA? League to launch online show during hiatus

It has been more than two months since the PBA was forced to a hiatus due to the CoVID-19 Pandemic and the league is trying to make ways to keep its fans engaged.
The PBA will be launching its very own online show 'Kamustahan sa PBA' on its online platforms as well as in PBA rush and CignalTV starting Sunday, 8PM.
League's top big men San Miguel Beer's June Mar Fajardo, Talk N Text's Poy Erram, NLEX's Asi Taulava, Rain or Shine's Beau Belga and Magnolia's Marc Pingris will be opening the curtain of show's pilot episode.
The show which aimed to let fans get a glimpse of their PBA hard court heroes, and be updated on the latest news around the league, came after more than two monthsnof inexistence of live games.
PBA had only played a single game in its 45th season before the Philippine Cup was halted by the pandemic. The league also complied to the authorities' protocols and guidelines by suspending the teams' practices and trainings.
However, cloud of uncertainty surrounds the league return following the extended community quarantine imposed by the government in hopes to control the spread of the virus.
The PBA had ruled out the possibility of playing the season with the usual three conference format. The PBA board, through an online video conferencing, decided to wait until August before making a definitive decision about the the fate of the league's 45th year.
The league is leaning towards reducing the season to a single conference format, although if the pandemic remains longer than expected, PBA Commissioner Willie Marcial is not setting aside the possibility of cancelling the entire season.
