ABS-CBN news and current affairs head Regina "Ging" Reyes remembered Castro as a perfectionist and a mentor, while broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez likened him to Star Wars icon Master Yoda. Tina Monzon-Palma, who was Castro's co-anchor for 15 years in "The World Tonight," recalled the days when they were working for different TV networks and competed against each other. Jing Magsaysay, former ANC News Director said in his eulogy that "ABS-CBN and the industry owe Angelo." Castro’s wife June Keithley was touched by the Kapamilya network’s tribute, saying it was heartwarming to have ABS-CBN honor his husband.
