Atom Araullo Resigns as News Reporter for ABS-CBN's News and Current Affairs

ABS-CBN News personality Atom Araullo has resigned from his reportorial duties for TV Patrol, Bandila, and ANC. However, Araullo remains as one of the hosts for the TV station’s morning show, Umagang Kay Ganda, and Red Alert.

Recently, Araullo has been expressing strong opinion on issues, such as the controversy surrounding the burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani and certain policies of the present administration. Thus, instead of being accused as a biased reporter and thereby affect the integrity of the News Department, Araullo opted to resign.

In the meantime, Araullo will use his time to complete his pending book projects, explore opportunities to pursue his interest in making independent films, and possibly write a column in one of the major dailies and. His resignation from his post will allow him to express his opinions freely and not be limited by his affiliation to a news organization. He also plans to focus on his advocacies on the environment and climate change.

Araullo started his career in the broadcast industry at a young age when he was one of the hosts of 5 and Up. In 2005, he completed his degree in BS Applied Physics from the University of the Philippines, Diliman. After graduation, he became a segment producer for ABS-CBN and eventually became a field reporter a couple of years after.

Pag tao ka ngang may prinsipyo hindi mo malunok ang mga nakikita mong mga nagyayari lalo't hindi ito ayon sa kgandahang asal,subalit pilit na pinapaganda lalo't kinikilingan.So silang mgkakampi ay my meeting of the minds lalo pa kung naibinta na nila ang prinsipyo nila dun sa taong ngbigay ng mgandang posisyon sa knila.at ikaw na hindi umaayon sa mgkakampi, labas mo'y di kapanalig.

    2. isa pa to si 4:39 lol.
      parang di rin nagets ung reason ni atom

      Delete
    3. @12:52 Nagsasabi lang siya ng opinion niya, alam niya man o hindi yung reason pwede niya sabihin yan, puro ka puna eh.

      Delete
    4. 1:35 Hehe. Totoo naman po kasi na hindi n'ya gets. It's better to correct someone than to ignore someone's ignorance for discretion.

      Delete
    5. @1:35 tama naman ang magbigay ng opinyon. pero obvious na hindi nagbasa si 4:39. o kaya ay mahina sa comprehension. kasi ang reason ng resignation ay para hindi sya masabihang biased. eh kung lilipat sa ibang istasyon, eh di defeats the purpose. he still cannot freely express his opinions.

      Delete
    6. Hahaha si 1:35 panay ang puna, aanga anga!

    7. Sabi ni 4:39 SANA. Comprehension, geez!

    11. when a person corrects another, i just hope they'll do it in a respectful way. you're correcting but you're the one who must be corrected 1:45, 2:08 and etc

      anyhow, atom is an example of a real filipino

    12. 12:52, 1:45, 1:54, 2:08, tagalog na nga yung statement ni 4:39 hindi niyo pa rin siya naintindihan, diyos ko Lord. Dito talaga nagkakatotoo yung sinasabi nila na, bago ka mamuma ng iba yung sayo muna LOLOLOL hahahaha :))))

  4. Awww.. Sayang.. Pero kasi maiintindihan naman bakit ganyan ang opinyon ni Atom against the Marcoses kasi mismong family nya noon nabiktima ng Martial Law. Isa ang mother nya na nakikibaka noon..

      For the other critiques, hindi lahat ng nagsasabi na lumipat nlng sya ng station ay di nakakaintindi, they just wanted to express their thoughts.

  22. A journalist/reporter such as Atom belongs to a news channel with integrity and credibility. Such cannot be said about ABS-CBN.

  23. One by one, people are now starting to stand up for themselves. To fight for what they believe in. Dati kasi, kung ano lang ang convenient at kung ano lang mas maraming benefits, or kung saan mas malaking pera. Today, ang pinoy nagiging realistic na at mas mahal na nila ang bansa/kapwa pinoy kesa sa sarili nila. Pak ganern.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They cannot follow suit if they are to keep such jobs. Atom resigned to be able to express his opinion freely; a news anchor does not necessarily have such freedom due to his duty to ensure credibility by not taking positions -- AKA bias.

  25. Ganun talaga Atom. Pinahanga mo ko. Kahit mapapunta ka sa isang less sikat na network. Alam ko naman ngayon ang prinsipyo mo at ikaw ay talaga you stand by it. Congratz Atom. God bless you more.

  40. This is the standard of responsible journalism. Atom is a breathe of fresh air in a global industry in which editorializing and news reporting are often blurred. A network's public affairs department was supposed to advance CSR and the network's public service role as a privileged licensee. Now, public affairs has become a revenue-generating entertainment and business unit. Others just talk about being unbiased or "walang kinikilingan," but their tone and on-air commentaries as they report the news say otherwise.

    3. Nagbabasa sila sa teleprompter coz they're supposed to give us news. If they made up something else aside from sa nakalap na detalye through their research that's fake news already since some details were distorted. Tama po makinig ka po sa DZMM or manuod ka sa teleradyo 6-8am kay Kabayan tas 8-10am kay Ted and you'll know how fearless those men are. When i listen to them, ako kinakabahan sa kanila kasi baka bukas d ko na sila marinig sa sobrang bigaten ng mga issues at tao ang tinatalakay nila.

  65. Mga tao talaga, o. Basa-basa at intindi rin kasi ng article pag may time. Atom resigned from his reporting duties but he DID NOT RESIGN FROM ABS-CBN. Host pa rin siya sa UKG at Red Alert, di ba??Meaning, he will not do any reporting jobs (pero hindi natin masasabi kung temporary lang o for good na) kasi nga naaapektuhan na ng personal views nya yung integrity nya sa general public as a reporter and ang integrity ng ABS-CBN news dept as a whole (kahit alam naman na nating medyo sira na nga ang integrity ng ABS-CBN news dept, hehe). At least, kapag hindi siya field reporter, he can freely express his views and opinions sa certain issues without people labeling him as a "biased journalist".

    Isang kahanga-hangang desisyon, Mr. Atom Araullo. Tunay, palaban, makabayan!

  68. Si Atom na yung nag-adjust para sainyo. Mema mga nasa comment section, wala siyang sinabi na bias ang ABS kaya siya nag resign. Ginawa niya yun para walang masabi ang mga tao about sa prinsipyo at pinaglalaban niya. Tinuruan kayong magbasa at magcomprehend sa binasa ninyo diba? "Biased" pa!

  70. May sinusunod lang naman kasi ang lahat ng kumpanya! At kapag lumabag ka natural mapagsasabihan ka at mabibigyan ka ng memo. Pinatunayan lang naman ng ABS na wala silang favoritism na empleyado. At iwas lang sila na bias talaga ang network, yun naman kasi lagi ang tingin ng karamihan! Pero wag naman sanang lumipat ng ibang network si idol!
