The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) conducted an adjudication hearing on Wednesday on the complaint filed by former actress Nadia Montenegro against Cristy Fermin, host of “The Buzz,” who was recently suspended by ABS-CBN.

The network and the board agreed that “Buzz” main host Boy Abunda will make a public apology on the Sunday afternoon talk show for the “uncontrollable behavior” of Fermin during an interview on Oct. 5 regarding her feud with Montenegro.

ABS-CBN was represented in Wednesday’s closed-door hearing by business unit head Louie Andrada and executive producer Nancy Yabut, the network’s legal director Mona Lisa Manalo and assistant liaison for the MTRCB Daisy Parungao. The board was represented by vice-chair Marc Castrodes and members Noel del Prado and Cristine Concordia.

After the hearing, the network representatives, committed to pre-tape segments that tackle sensitive issues, for self-regulation.

The network also promised to publish a public apology in a major daily, “on a best-efforts basis,” said board chair Marissa Laguardia.
