For 30 years now, Arnold Clavio has been doing exactly what he wanted to do when he first joined the industry in 1987.

During his long career in broadcasting, Igan (as what most viewers call him) has anchored and hosted a number of programs for GMA-7 — Unang Hirit, Saksi, Alisto, Tonight with Arnold Clavio — while retaining his presence on radio via DZBB.

Now, at 51, Igan is celebrating his 30th year in the business by launching his own book titled Iskets, Piktyur At Tula: Igan @30 (published by Mindmaster Publishing Inc.), a collection of poetry and artworks from the anchorman himself.

“Ito ay nabuo bilang pasasalamat ko rin sa Panginoon na 30 taon na nag­lilingkod ako sa propesyong napili ko. Salamat sa talent na ibinigay ng nasa taas,” Igan said in a recent interview. “Nagkaroon ng social media, technology, bagong applications, mas naging madali nang i-express kung ano man ang nasa loob.”

He added: “Alam kong bawat isa sa atin may ibinigay na regalo. Tuklasin natin ‘yan para sa pagpuri sa Kanya. Kapag gumagawa ako ng sketch at tula, gumagaan ang pakiramdam ko parang andun ‘yung biyaya kasi ibinabalik ko sa Kanya, hindi mo sinasayang ‘yung ibinigay niyang talent."

All proceeds from the book will go directly to his iGan ng Pilipinas Foundation and will benefit children with diabetes. (Igan himself is diabetic.)
