Kabahagi na ng programang Wowowin ang anak ni Gary Valenciano na si Gabriel "Gab" Valenciano.

Si Gab ang bagong additional director ng evening game show ni Willie Revillame na napapanood sa GMA-7.

Masayang ni-reveal ito ni Willie sa kanyang show.

“Alam niyo bakit ako ganado? Ang director, ang gagaling niyo diyan sa loob.

"Yung aming director ngayon, palakpakan niyo naman, hindi ko matiis, Gabriel Valenciano!

"Ang ganda ng ilaw, ang ganda ng tunog, ang ganda ng lahat," papuri pa ni Willie sa kanyang directors na sina Gab, Joel Angeles, at Alberto Miguel.

Ayon sa anak ni Gary V., gusto niyang bigyan ng bagong dating ang Wowowin para mas maka-reach out ito sa millennial televiewers.

"If you've noticed recently, it's much quicker, it's a little younger.

"I told Kuya if there's one way that I could come in and kinda lessen the load for you, in terms of your creative input, in terms of the production value, in terms of the music, the shots and everything, then maybe there is a place for me here."

Enjoy daw si Gab sa Wowowin dahil na rin sa husay ni Willie bilang TV host, at dahil mabilis daw siyang tinanggap ng mga taga-GMA-7.

"It was so natural for me to fall in love with the show. Na-in love din ako sa mga tao.

"I've always loved GMA, I've always loved the people of GMA.

"It really felt very familiar to me, and I feel very fortunate.

"I feel so blessed to become part of something that doesn't just entertain people, pero talagang Kuya goes out of his way to help so many people, so many Filipinos. To be able to be part of that vision, nakakatuwa."

Binalikan rin ni Gab ang panahon na napapanood siya noon sa Kapuso network.

"To be honest, I actually started here.

"I started out in SOP Gigsters."

Ang SOP Gigsters ay isang variety show sa GMA-7 na hosted noon ng magkapatid na Richard Gutierrez at Raymond Gutierrez. Nag-premiere ito noong June 13, 2004, at natapos noong October 22, 2006.

Inamin ni Gab na ready na niyang talikuran ang showbiz, pero dahil sa offer ni Willie, bumalik siya upang maging codirector ng Wowowin.

"To be able to start 2020 with this one, you know, I've been away from showbiz for a very long time and I really had no plans on going back. But na-capture ko, parang na-inhale ko, iyong vision and mission ni Kuya, which is to help Filipinos all around the world, to give them happiness."

Open din ang 31-year old director sa anumang input ng Wowowin staff para mas mapaganda pa ang show.

"I always make sure I always tell the staff and crew, if may input kayo, tell me because I'm not the type na sarado, ako lang 'to.

"Ang ganda ng chemistry ng buong team.

"Younger vibe, quicker vibe, we have a lot of surprises coming up within the next couple of weeks and months."

Matagal nang pinasok ni Gab ang production work, at sa nakaraang Southeast Asian Games ay siya ang nag-compose at nag-arrange ng song na "Pride," na pinatugtog sa closing ceremony.

Ilu-launch sa February 15, 2020 ang Wowowin Primetime, every Saturday, 7:00 P.M.

Sa kanyang Instagram account, ikinuwento ni Gab na, three years ago, desperado siya para makahanap ng trabaho. Inamin niyang matagal na niyang pangarap ang maging isang direktor ngunit hindi ito natutuloy.

Ito ang sinulat ni Gab sa kanyang Instagram post:

"Taking this time to simply reflect on my life and let all of you know that if you wait long enough, try hard enough and hope deep enough, good things can happen. Three years ago I was desperate for a job. I had aspirations on becoming a director but it just never fell through.

"Then it dawned to me, it’s not good enough to be good at what you do. You need to be good within. So I had to check myself and see what adjustments needed to be made. Character speaks louder than actions.

"I want to thank Kuya Wil for believing in me since day one. His support has been endless and his creative genius and experience allows me to stretch my imagination even further. And to the staff and crew, thank you for welcoming me. I love you all. I will do my very best. And last but not the least, thank You Lord. All glory belongs to You and You alone. Let’s do this! Bigyan ng jacket yan!!"
