• Robredo to host own radio show


    FOLLOWING a decline in her approval ratings, Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo will host a weekly radio program starting today.

    Robredo will co-anchor the one-hour “BISErbisyong LENI” radio program with broadcaster Ely Saludar in the pilot episode.

    “On this show, they will be discussing topics on public service and legal advice when needed. Both anchors will be interviewing key persons depending on the agreed-upon topic for the week,” the Office of the Vice President said in a statement.

    For the pilot episode, Robredo and Saludar will interview Dyan Rodriguez of Nutrition in the Philippines, as well as Lorna Tambaoan, a solo parent from Quezon City.

    “Topics to be covered will be on the state of nutrition in the Philippines and Mothers’ Day,” Robredo’s office said.

    The show will be aired on the Radio Mindanao Network (RMN) Facebook Page and radio station dzXL, as well as RMN stations in Cebu, Cagayan de Oro City, Davao City and Naga City.

    In the latest Pulse Asia survey, Robredo’s approval rating slid to 58 percent in the first quarter, from 62 percent in December 2016.

    Her net trust rating plunged by 15 points in the first-quarter poll of the Social Weather Stations, to +30, from +45 in the fourth quarter of 2016.

    Robredo left the Duterte Cabinet late last year after a disagreement with the President over the burial of the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

      Masyadong papansin si Leni Robredo at ang mga kasamahan nito sa Leni camp. Wala kasing trabaho. Walang mangyayari sa radio program na yan. Puro paggastos lang ng pera ng bayan yan ang alam nilang gawin.

    2. Of course, this strategy is part and parcel of the overall design of bringing down Pres. Duterte. They will start with a seemingly innocuous topic like nutrition but will soon be hitting the president left and right, especially his war on drugs. Robredo is very much a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing.

    3. This gimmick of Robredo is going to be a useless thing. Because nothing can make agreeable what is essentially disagreeable, which is what she is. Robredo is persona non grata to a great number of Filipinos because they know that she is not really the elected vice-president. She also has has no sense of propriety. Her conversations and posturings are always cheap and devoid of finesse.
