The Buzz airs final episode on Easter Sunday

After almost 16 years, ABS-CBN’s weekly entertainment news and talk show The Buzz aired its final episode on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015.

Asia’s King of Talk, Boy Abunda, who successfully steered the multi-awarded show with the help of co-host Kris Aquino and several others in between, including Toni Gonzaga, did not disclose the real reason why they have to go off the air.

He just said the people behind the program as well as its viewers have evolved. Citing changes in the composition of the show’s staff, Abunda emphasized that they have agreed to cease from airing “temporarily.”

The Buzz, which featured local celebrity gossip and news, premiered in 1999.

After more than one and a half decade, is it safe to say that the show was cancelled because it was overtaken by social media and emerging online showbiz news sources? Is it the reason why The Buzz needs to be replaced by the rumored show to be hosted by the Gonzaga sisters, The Toni Alex Talk Show?
