Family, friends, former colleagues and fellow journalists of veteran broadcast journalist Angelo Castro, Jr. came together to honor him in a special tribute held recently at the Dolphy Theater. In a message read by ABS-CBN president and COO Charo Santos-Concio, ABS-CBN Chairman and CEO Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez described Castro “one of the rocks upon which ABS-CBN was built.”  

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. 

Catch the emotional tribute to one of the greatest news anchors on Philippine television in the primetime telecast of "Farewell, Angelo Castro Jr." hosted by Sanchez and “Kabayan” Noli de Castro this Friday, April 13, at 6:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on ANC (SkyCable Channel 27).

PBB Unlimited Big Winner Slater Young preps up for showbiz career

Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited” Big Winner Slater Young said it would be best for current and aspiring PBB housemates to be themselves while staying inside the PBB house. 

“You just have to be real. Strategies are problematic because they would backfire on you. When you leave the house, it would work against you if you present something that’s not you inside the house,” said Slater, a licensed civil engineer who is determined to pursue a career in show business.
He may now be out of the heavily monitored Big Brother house but expect to see more of Slater as he enters a new chapter of his life after PBB.
“I really want to try acting and drama. I will be going through acting workshops while I wait for potential projects,” stated Slater, who is relocating to Manila.
Slater, who garnered almost 40% of the total votes to be crowned the Big Winner, would like to developed as a “serious actor” just like his idols John Lloyd Cruz and Pen Medina.  He also wishes to be paired up with host-actress KC Concepcion. “I’ve long had a crush on KC because she’s very simple yet classy,” he said.
Though his was a landslide victory, Slater said he still has to get used to being recognized in public places where random people greet him and request to have a picture with him taken. He recalled a recent incident in a mall when a mother came up to him and told him that she supported and voted for him because of the values he had shown inside the PBB house.

Slater took home P2 million, an appliance showcase, an Asian tour package, an Internet TV, a water-refilling store franchise, and a special appearance in a Kapamilya program in the United States.
He also revealed that he will be allocating a part of his prize money on the schooling of the kids of their company’s employees. “We already did it before. We usually support our employees’ children who are studying or enrolled in highly expensive courses like engineering and nursing,” said Slater, whose family in Cebu has a construction business.

Slater joined PBB to become more mature and independent. During his stay in the PBB house, he was regarded as a leader who exhibited cleverness in carrying out Big Brother’s challenges as well as compassion for his fellow housemates.

He bested the edition’s 32 housemates including fellow Big Four contenders Pamu Pamorada, Joseph Biggel, and Paco Evangelista.
Pamu was named the Second Big Placer after getting 21.49% of the votes and won P1 million. Tagged as the bold and cheerful “Kitikiti Kid of Batangas,” she stood her ground when she fell for ex-housemate Kevin and broke up with her then-boyfriend in the PBB house.

Nineteen year-old Joseph Biggel, the youngest among the Big Four housemates, was declared the Third Big Placer with 21.39% of the votes and brought home P500,000. The lad from Marinduque inspired viewers with his rousing story of being abandoned by his German father.

Wildcard housemate Paco, meanwhile, was crowned the Fourth Big Placer for getting 17.10% of the votes and won P300,000. He gained admiration for serving as a leader and more notably, as Big Brother’s house player who was tasked to bring out the true colors of his fellow housemates.

Di na gaanong uso ang libre ngayon kaya kapag madalas ang pamumudmod ng libre tulad ng gamot, tila dapat ng maghinala dahil baka namomodus operandi ka na.

Kaya naman ng mapansin ito ng isang concerned citizen ay agad niyang binigay ang tip sa “XXX” na tinutukan naman ni Julius Babao. Ayon sa tipster ay namimigay diumano ang isang grupo ng mga kalalakihan sa Novaliches ng libreng gamot sa balat, rayuma, mata, ngipin at iba pang sakit na hindi naman kilalang brand at hindi aprubado para sa kalusugan.

Isang surveillance ang isinagawa ng programa at naaktuhan nga ang isang lalaking nagbibigay ng reseta sa walang muwang na customer. Ang masklap nito ay kalanunan daw ay may bayad na ang ipinamimigay na libeng gamot.

Habang inaalam ni Julius ang puno’t dulo sa panibagong modus operandi ay isang naiibang expose naman ang ibibigay ni Anthony Taberna dahil sa halip na katiwalian ay kabutihang nagagawa naman ng mga pulis ang kanyang isisiwalat. Bagamat masama ang imahen ng mga pulis sa publiko dala ng mga kaliwa’t kanang ulat ng pangongotong at pang-aabuso, may mga pulis ding tapat sa tungkulin at nagsasakripisyo sa ngalan ng serbisyo.

Samantala, bibisitahin naman ni Pinky Webb ang 12 taong gulang na batang binigyang pugay ng “XXX” dahil sa kanyang mahusay na pagsabay ng kanyang pag-aaral at pag-aalaga sa lolong may sakit. Ano na kaya buhay niya ngayon?

Pakatutukan ang “XXX” ngayong Lunes (April 2) pagkatapos ng Bandila¨sa ABS-CBN. Mapapanood din ito ng mas maaga sa DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable ch 26) sa parehong araw sa ganap na 9:15 PM. 

PRESS STATEMENT: Derek Ramsay No Longer Kapamilya

"Derek Ramsay has decided to transfer to TV5. For months, ABS-CBN has exerted efforts to make him stay as a Kapamilya. TV5, however, offered him an amount that was difficult for him to refuse.  We thank Derek for the many years he has been with ABS-CBN."
