Jing Magsaysay, who anchored Newsroom on CNN Philippines in addition to serving as the svp for news and current affairs, is departing the network, as he announced to staffers on Tuesday.
“You have worked so hard and sacrificed so much to get the story, put it together and bring to our audience,” he wrote, according to MediaNewser. “Thank you for believing in what I believe in — that news is the soul of the company.”
Magsaysay has been with the network through its various iterations, joining back in 2010 when it was known as Solar News; and he remained as the svp through the transition from Solar News to 9News to CNN Philippines.
Last week, CNN Philippines laid off 70 employees.
