The former comedian turned public official will now hold one of the highest positions in the state media network, IBC-13.
The appointment of Arnell Ignacio on the said post was made public by Jun Lalin on his Abante column ‘Anything Goes’.
According to the report, Ignacio was informed that he will be the new chairperson last week.
It really did not come as a surprise as Ignacio was already a board member for IBC-13.
There is a small concern, however. as Arnell is hosting a radio program in DZBB that is privately owned by GMA Network.
Arnell is hoping that he would still be able to continue for DZBB because the said program is tied still with the Department of Labor and Employment, a government agency.
