Showbiz's 'Mr M' makes the move after leaving ABS-CBN in late 2020
Johnny Manahan has signed with GMA Artist Center.
The announcement was made by GMA on Tuesday, July 13, with a post on social media.
The showbiz veteran, known in the industry as “Mr M,” was previously with ABS-CBN. He founded what would become the network’s talent management arm, Star Magic.
In September 2020, Manahan left Star Magic, following the rejection of ABS-CBN’s congressional franchise.
He went on to work with Brightlight Productions, directing noontime variety shows Lunch Out Loud and the now-defunct Sunday Noontime Live.
Manahan’s transfer to GMA comes a few weeks after top actress Bea Alonzo also made to the Kapuso network
