‘Korina Sanchez didn’t resign but on leave from radio show’
MANILA, Philippines—Broadcast journalist Korina Sanchez is currently on leave from her morning program on DZMM contrary to reports that she resigned from her post.
This was officially announced Tuesday by ABS-CBN spokesperson Bong Osorio citing Sanchez needs to concentrate on her post-graduate studies at the Ateneo de Manila University.
“This was planned as early as middle of 2013 when Korina informed ABS-CBN management about her intentions to focus on her studies. Korina will continue to be seen on television as anchor of “TV Patrol” and “Rated K,” Osorio said in a statement.
In November last year, Sanchez met disapprovals from social media when she criticized CNN anchor Anderson Cooper’s on-the-ground coverage, which was highly critical of the national government.
Since then, Sanchez appearance on her radio show became irregular which created speculations that she has been suspended by ABS-CBN or that she resigned from her post.
