Saldivar says he didn’t demand removal of talk show co-host

John Saldivar

Fifty thousand dollars is a lot to spend on turkey but Saldivar stands by his claim that he was defamed. Plus TV’s Managing Director Luis Wade, in an interview with News Five on Wednesday, said that he had been asked by Saldivar repeatedly to have Andrews removed as co-host of the talk show along the demands to avoid a lawsuit. According to Saldivar, he did not demand Andrews’ termination, instead he was simply offering Wade unsolicited advice in the best interest of the show and its audience.


John Saldivar, U.D.P. Area Representative, Belmopan

“I am not crazy.  I don’t own Plus TV and cannot demand or request them to do anything.  As I have explained this morning on the Wave Radio Show, I am considering myself to be a friend of Luis Wade and considering him to be my friend, had offered him friendly advice that I thought that the slant that Patrick Jason Andrews was taking on the show was turning off people and that he was losing listenership and viewership and I simply gave him free, of course unsolicited advice.  But I simply told him bwai this guy is causing you to lose support among especially the Belmopan people, who, on a frequent basis, were texting me concerned about many comments that he was making.  So I never demanded, I never begged and I never requested for Mr. Andrews to be fired, I simply cautioned, in a friendly manner, Mr. Luis Wade that I thought that, in my opinion, the way he was taking his show was going to hurt the image and credibility of Plus TV.”


A date for the case to be heard in the Supreme Court, as well as the damages being sought by Saldivar, is yet to be determined.

    Saldivar’s head is too big now, thinks he’s above the law. I hope he gets brought down to earth. For his own sake, of course.

  2. John says:

    The lost time he lost in Cayo South he cried like a little child. This time because of his stupidity he will not just cry but mourn for years by the same Belmopan people.

  3. Initiate says:

    I didn’t know that Mr Andrews is a formidable opponent to Mr. Saldivar.
    He who throws stones looses ground.
    I think Saldivar is principally just making Andrews feel better and bigger.
