Your Friendly Neighborhood Blogcaster at Radyo Inquirer

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I've been calling myself as a "blogcaster" for quite a long time already since I joined the broadcasting community on radio as a co-host at the Vigattin radio show of Radyo Inquirer DZIQ 990 AM airing every Saturday from 10 to 11 am.

I genuinely coined the word from the words "blogger" and "broadcaster" to come up with the perfect designation since I've gone beyond blogging already and penetrated the broadcasting world. I would also like to mention the other radio and TV guesting opportunities, plus the upcoming TV segments for existing TV shows at UNTV, and another TV network soon, if ever it gets approval.

I owe the opportunity to be part of radio hosting out from the invitation of Mr. Vigattin himself, Elison Barcelo, to become part of Radyo Inquirer as his guest co-host. I will forever cherish this experience as part of my ever growing portfolio.

Last Saturday, February 7, after several weeks of absence from the radio show due to weekend-scheduled events, I finally had a free Saturday to drop by and join them once again to interview some guests namely the students from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) Junior Marketing Executives group who is currently running a beauty pageant competition among the students of PUP. They brought along 5 out of the 18 pre-selected candidates who are already scheduled to compete in the grand coronation night to determine who will be Mr. and Ms Marketing World for 2015.

This was followed by an interview with our other esteemed guests namely were Israel Brizuela of and Emil Tapnia of PhilDev.


Israel talked about BillsPay, his payment facility that enables for faster payment transactions using his developed platform where you can have bills and statements sent straight to your online or mobile bank. You can view, pay and store bills securely and with the convenience of your online or mobile bank. BillsPay is not only super easy to use, it’s packed with smart features to make paying bills less complicated — from bill scheduling to instant 24 hour access. And if you run a business, you’ll love the easy reconciliation and powerful features like batch payments. They are also working on introducing new features like QR codes.

Emil shared to us the role of PhilDev in also discovering potential entrepreneurs and startups with bright ideas to share so that they could mentor and assist them for better chances to succeed in their endeavors. They aim to bring entrepreneurial culture and skills into the science and engineering education system in the Philippines.

We all got to talk about his big boss and one of my idols in the field of technology, Mr. Dado Banatao, who was a shoolmate of mine form the Mapua Institute of Technology. Many knows Dado as the Filipino version of Bill Gates and the engineer who designed a motherboard that revolutionized the technology, and now he is a venture capitalist and Chairman of PhilDev, a non-profit organization focused on programs that build the infrastructure of science and technology development and innovation aimed at long term social and economic development in the Philippines. Their strategic programs are in the areas of Education, Innovation, Infrastructure and Entrepreneurship.
