AgSur media org vows to advocate for PH govt’s vaccination program

AGUSAN DEL SUR, Feb. 15 (PIA) – In time with the conduct of the Pagdu-aw (visit) in Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur led by the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) and the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Caraga, the members of the Agusan Media Club had vowed to support and communicate the government’s intention to ensure the protection of the people thru a vaccination program.
PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar recognized the media practitioners in Agusan del Sur for their sincere commitment and dedication in doing their tasks and responsibilities to the general public. “As influencers, the media has a great role to play especially in inculcating good practices and truth in all their contents,” he cited.
Richard Grande, station manager of Lips FM and president of Agusan Media Club thanked the PCOO for always reaching out to the Caraganon media personnel and looking after their welfare.
“We will continue to fight not only against the COVID-19 but also with fake news. Together with PCOO, we will continue to uphold the truth in all the information that we share and air on our respective programs and help people have a better understanding and perspective on the vaccination program under President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration,” underscored Grande.
Andanar also expressed his optimism that the Media Welfare Act which aims to ensure that media workers shall, at the minimum, be paid the wages allowances, and benefits provided by law to workers would soon be approved by the House of Representatives.
“The media practitioners not only at the national level but also at the local would be benefitting much from this bill once put into law. Better opportunities are coming,” said Andanar.
Meanwhile, Sec. Andanar also handed over one unit of TV monitor to the Agusan Media Club as donation and for them to be able to monitor the depatment's Laging Handa Network Briefings, which they could also utilized during their radio and TV programs. (JPG/PIA-Agusan del Sur)
