On his official Facebook Page today, Kapamilya reporter Atom Araullo confirmed that he has “quietly” resigned as a reporter from ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs and clarified that he only resigned as a reporter but will continue to “work with the network and their programs” including ABS-CBN’s morning program “Umagang Kay Ganda” and “Red Alert.”
Before believing in thousands of speculations posted in Social Media, just take it directly from Atom Araullo.
Atom Araullo on his Facebook account says:
I quietly resigned as a news reporter of ABS-CBN a few weeks ago to explore other areas of media and to grow as a journalist. However, I continue to work with the network and our programs. My political views were not a factor in making this decision.
Having studied pressing issues based on fact and with an open mind, journalists, like any other individual, should ultimately stand up for the truth. This does not weaken our journalism, it strengthens it. Our guiding principles are fairness and accuracy. As we face tougher scrutiny from the public, we in media also strive to be more transparent and open to criticism.
I thank everyone for the support they expressed on social media. I look forward to playing my role in the debates and issues to come.
We love you Atom! We admire your dedication to your passion and craft in journalism.
