Deo Macalma


When talking about broadcasters with originality, Deo Macalma is among those on top of the list. He is one of the epitomes of success in the radio broadcast industry. Because of his amusing satirical commentaries and intriguing blind items that have become the hallmark of his career, his loyal listeners have stayed and surged throughout the decades since the onset of his broadcasting stint.

Many of his listeners are no aware that Lakay Deo – as he is fondly called – has a ‘rags to riches’ life story. He started from humble beginnings as he worked as a janitor and roomboy while in college just to make ends meet. Although he first took up Business Administration, he already fancied being a journalist because of his passion for writing.

Even after college, career ladder was never an easy climb for him. He entered DZRH as a newswriter, and from there, his skills were honed and he continued to strive for excellence.Lakay Deo soon rose to becoming the station’s Managing Editor and Assistant News Director. From gaining enough experience and expertise, he assumed the position of News Director. Now, he is the station’s Assistant Vice-President to Joe Taruc whom he was just once idolizing.

Lakay Deo currently tandems with Karen Ow-Yong in Isyu every 9 to 10:30 in the morning, and with Rica Herra in “Breaktime” every 4 to 5:30 in the afternoon. Both programs air on weekdays. He also co-anchors Joe Taruc in Pangunahing Balita on weekdays, from 7 to 7:30 in the morning. He reports his “Espesyal na Balita” from 7:30 to 8 in the morning, which also airs on weekdays.

    Malaki po ang problema tungkol sa tubig. Nagtataka ako dahil hindi pa rin ginagawa ng pamahalaan ang mga dapat gawin habang may ulan pa, maski papaano. Malaki talaga ang magagawa ng rainwater harvesting at kasamang teknolohiya.

    Kung nais pa ninyong mas malalim na paguusap, tawagan po ako sa 09054229508.

Gusto ko pong e send ang resume ko pero sana sa sarili nyo pong email address.

    Lakay Deo,
    I love hearing your programs kasi binibigyan mo ng buhay… hindi sya boring…

    Btw, ang pagkabigkas po ng name ni Pres. “Digong” ay dapat diretso. DIGONG – YES!
    DI-GONG – NO!

    Mabuhay ka!
