A number of tipsters told us that he's talking to TV5 executives, while others quickly mentioned that Santos may transfer to GMA-7 and will be part of its morning show Unang Hirit.
Then there's this particular tweet by Harold Geronimo, a lifestyle columnist for Manila Standard Today, which pointed out that Santos is moving to Solar News.
So it's true: Alex Santos resigned from ABS-CBN; off to Solar News.

A top Solar executive, however, dismissed the rumors, noting that Santos isn't joining their fast-growing network.
We also learned that GMA News is unlikely his next destination. With the Kapuso Network focusing on the coverage of the upcoming midterm elections, a new hire isn't their priority at the moment.
The prospect of having him as new "kapatid" on TV5 was also downplayed by a TV5 executive noting that there are no talks or negotiations to have him as part of the Happy Network.
So where is he heading next? The safest answer would be that he's staying with ABS-CBN and renegotiating his contract. For one, he has made no announcement of his resignation or his next move, but who knows? Stay tuned!
