Macaraig, former news anchor of TV 5 and ANC television networks, passed away Tuesday after a long battle against cancer.

“We mourn the passing of one of the Philippines’ veteran journalists and columnists, Twink Macaraig. Let’s remember Ms. Macaraig’s freethinking and devotion towards addressing and raising awareness of societal problems and issues in order to get people to cast aside their apathy,” Andanar said in a statement Tuesday.

“Despite her long battle with cancer, she faced adversities with smiles and laughter and she never ceased her duty and passion for journalism.”

Andanar also said Macaraig had a great love for books and publications, citing her foundation of the oldest book club in the Philippines.

“We are with the entire media community, her friends, and her family as they grieve the loss of this remarkable person,” he said.
