Filipino Journalist Juan Jumalon Murdered During Live Radio Broadcast

HeadlineNov 06, 2023

In the Philippines, 57-year-old radio journalist Juan Jumalon was shot dead during a live broadcast in his home studio Sunday by an attacker who fled on a motorcycle with an accomplice. Viewers watching the program on Facebook witnessed the brazen murder in real time, though the shooter was not on camera. Police say they’re investigating whether the killing was related to Jumalon’s work as a journalist. He was the 199th media worker to be killed in the Philippines since the dictator Ferdinand Marcos — the father of the current president — was toppled in a popular uprising in 1986.
