Anderson Cooper gets a star on Walk of Fame Philippines

By Media Newser Philippines | Thursday, December 05, 2013

German Moreno recently unveiled the 33 honorees of his very own Walk of Fame Philippines.

For its sixth year, Moreno included GMA News' Jessica Soho and ANC's Tina Monzon Palma, as among the honorees in broadcast news.

Also getting a star is CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who made some headlines last month after covering the aftermath of super typhoon Yolanda in Tacloban.

When asked why he included Cooper as one of the honorees this year, Moreno in an interview with PEP said: "Si Anderson ang nagpakita ng tunay na mukha ng Tacloban at ilang parte pa ng Visayas na nasalanta dahil sa bagyong Yolanda sa buong mundo. Kaya naman nang mapanood nito ng ibang bansa, through CNN, may mga bansa kaagad na tumulong sa atin."

"Nakita naman natin yung sincerity nung tao na tulungan ang mga nasalanta nating kababayan. Hindi niya tao iniwan hanggang hindi naipapakita sa buong mundo kung ano talaga ang nangyari at kung ano talaga ang kalagayan ng mga tao roon. Kaya naman bilang pasasalamat na rin sa kanya, sa nagawa niya sa bansa, ay isinama ko siya sa Walk of Fame ngayong taon," he added.

Other recipients include actress Iza Calzado, singer Joey Albert, and Hollywood star Paul Walker, who died in a car crash last weekend.
