“Yes. True,” Andanar said in a text message Friday when asked if De Castro, the daughter of former Vice President and veteran broadcaster Noli de Castro, is the new PTV-4 general manager, replacing Julieta Claveria-Lacza.

De Castro, a Communication Arts graduate of Miriam College, started her broadcasting career as a field reporter of ABS-CBN before hosting her own travel show “Trip na Trip” and business magazine show “Swak na Swak.”

Later on, President Duterte named De Castro a member of the board of directors of state-run IBC-13 in August 2018 and was set to serve until June 30, 2019.

In March 2019, De Castro was named president and CEO of the network. As IBC-13 celebrated its 60th anniversary, De Castro sought to regain public interest by re-airing IBC-13 shows from the ’80s and ’90s.

In September 2019, Andanar said he talked with De Castro about the steps to be undertaken to finally sell off the TV network.
