The Philippine Star's Ricky Lo first reported the news Saturday saying he "was informed that Paolo has resigned as newscaster but remains as host of the Public Affairs show Demolisyon, while the NBI, upon Paolo’s request, continues to search for whatever evil mind has uploaded those videos in the Internet."
Using his Instagram account, Bediones left a short note on Wednesday saying: "Some of the hardest and most painful decisions in life actually free us from living life in fear. Have a blessed Wednesday everyone."
Bediones' departure comes a month after the circulation of his private video on social media. Initially, he continued anchoring his late-night newscast with the management expressing their support.
According to Lo, Martin Andanar will now be pulling double duty as he officially steps into Bediones' anchor chair while continuing his role as co-host of Aksyon sa Umaga.
