The daughter of Noli de Castro and former General Manager of PTV Network Kat de Castro couldn’t hide her disappointment after some news companies announced the passing of Mike Enriquez before GMA Network.
In a Facebook post, De Castro said that it was ethical to let the family of the veteran journalist or his home network announce the news first.
“Let me just rant a bit. When someone passes away, the right thing to do is to let the family or the official representative make the announcement,” said De Castro.
“We should respect the right of the immediate family to grieve by themselves or to announce it to other close family and friends first. There may be reasons unknown to us why it was not announced right away,” she added.
It can be recalled that GMA Network delayed the coverage of Enriquez’s passing to announce the news on the veteran journalist’s main program 24 Oras.
Before the show ended, Mel Tiangco, Vicky Morales, and Emil Sumangil confirmed the sad news to the public and remembered the legacy of Enriquez.
