Niño “Bonito” Padilla claims to be a perennial dissenter. But he dissents not for being a cynic, but because he opens new perspectives for the public to debate on. And this is what makes him a great broadcaster and storyteller.
Bai Niño hails from the Queen City of the South where the great perennial dissenter, Sen. Vicente ‘Don Enteng’ Sotto Sr. came. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Saint Paul Seminary, Silang Cavite where he majored in Philosophy and Mass Communications. He had his Masters of Industrial Psychology in University of Santo Tomas and took up law subjects in Arellano University.
He was the Market Researcher, Account Executive of Development Academy of the Philippines and Political and Religious Reporter in Philippine Star Cebu. Currently, he is the head of Manila Broadcasting Company’s Network News Center and Part-owner of DYRC Cebu. He is also affiliated with Cebu News Daily as a Copy Editor and Editor in Chief of Bahay-Coop Magazine, Legislative Travel (Official magazine of Cebu) and Umalohokan (Official school organ of University of Cebu, College of Law).
He co-anchors Kuya Angel PalmonesinBaranggay RH, which airs on weekdays from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.
