PRESS RELEASE FROM GMA-7:
GMA News Pillar Arnold Clavio has reaffirmed his loyalty as a Kapuso, renewing his exclusive contract with GMA Network last March 21.

Present during the signing were GMA Network Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Felipe L. Gozon; President and Chief Operating Officer, Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr.; Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Felipe S. Yalong; and Senior Vice President for News and Public Affairs Marissa L. Flores.

An award-winning broadcast journalist for more than 30 years already, Clavio considers the Kapuso Network as his home which has allowed him to be of ‘Serbsyong Totoo’ to Filipinos throughout the years.

“Nakakataba ng puso,” Clavio says of the contract signing. “Actually, di ko na kailangan ng contract. Dito ako nagsimula, dito na ako lumago. Napakapalad ko na maging bahagi ng Kapuso Network.” He adds that he is really proud to be a Kapuso. “Wala ako talagang masabi. Lagi akong nagmamalaki kapag may kausap akong estudyante: dito, ‘di mo nararamdaman yung boss. Ito na ang tinuring ko na [tahanan]…dito ako nakatira. Tinuturing ko na silang kasama sa buhay. Hindi ako mapupunta rito talaga kung wala sa pamunuan, sa tiwalang pinagkaloob [nila]. Kaya talagang malaking malaki ang pasasalamat [ko sa kanila].”

Atty. Gozon, in turn, expressed his appreciation of Igan’s dedication to work and to the Network. “Siguro naman kitang-kita na nagagalak tayong lahat sapagkat si Arnold ay isa sa mga pillar ng News and Public Affairs. ‘Yung kanyang mga program na Unang Hirit at saka Saksi ay always number one, so I don’t need to say anything more na kailangan natin si Arnold at siya naman ay natutuwa sa ating pagsasama,” he said.

Meanwhile, Duavit also underscored Clavio’s role as one of the pillars of GMA News and Public Affairs. “Sa araw na ito, tayo ay nasisiyahan dahil isa na namang pillar ang nagpatibay ng ating samahan. Nandun yung kaisahan, nandun yung patuloy na pagtitiwala, at patuloy na paglalim at paglawak ng relationship o samahan. Kaya tayo’y nagpapasalamat din kay Arnold sa kanyang kasipagan,” he said. Addressing Arnold, he added, “Pasasalamat Arnold sa patuloy mong pagbibigay lakas sa organisasyon at sa ating samahan.”

He also thanked Igan’s supporters. “Maraming salamat sa mga manunuod sa patuloy nilang pagtangkilik sa ating mga [news] pillar at sa mga pillar din sa patuloy nilang pagtangkilik sa ating lahat.”

Clavio is one of the pioneering hosts of the country’s longest-running morning show Unang Hirit. He also co-anchors GMA’s late night newscast Saksi and hosts the public affairs program Alisto. On GMA News TV, Clavio hosts the talk show Tonight with Arnold Clavio.

Aside from the support he gets at work, Clavio shared that the Kapuso Network executives have been very supportive of his advocacies. “Sila rin [ay] nakakasama ko sa pagtulong sa IGAN Foundation. So yung fulfillment mo sa trabaho as a journalist mas naging masaya’t matagumpay kasi kasa-kasama ko sila sa pagtulong sa mga beneficiary [namin] lalo  na yung mga batang may diabetes. So hindi lang kami dito sa loob, pati sa labas, Kapuso,” he said.

Clavio, who also co-anchors the weekday radio program Dobol A sa Dobol B on Super Radyo dzBB, is one of 2018’s Ten Outstanding Movers of the Philippines (TOMP) by the Students’ Actions Vital to the Environment and Mother Earth (SAVE ME) Movement. He was hailed as the Best Male Newscaster and Best TV Host for Unang Hirit at the 8th OFW Gawad Parangal and won as Inding-Indie Huwarang Mamamahayag ng Taon Award during the 2018 Inding-Indie Film Festival.
