Hi, I'm Bryant. I am a journalist in the Philippines working as an editor, writer, and researcher for more than 17 years.

Currently, I work at the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC) as Executive Producer for the following Sunday newscasts: News Now at 3 PM; Top Story Weekend; Weekend News Prime, and The World Tonight.

For more than two years, I also served as the Head Writer of The World Tonight, ANC's flagship news program and the Philippines' longest-running newscast.

Some of my previous assignments and projects included being the program director of the Philippine Press Institute, the country's association of newspapers, for a year; the Philippine researcher for Internews Europe on its Southeast Asian project on human rights and freedom of expression; and site manager, editor, and editorial content director for TuneMedia, a digital news media company.

For 12 years, I worked for the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) as senior staffwriter. I served as the managing editor of CMFR's Philippine Journalism Review Reports (PJR Reports), the country's first media-monitoring publication.

I also worked as founding editor-in-chief of Bulacan Bulletin, the first community news magazine in my hometown in Bulacan, Philippines.

I have also been a resource speaker to local and international seminars and workshops on journalism, media, as well as writing.

In 2009, I received an Asia Media Forum Fellowship. My fellowship study analyzed the press freedom situation and the culture of impunity in the Philippines, Indonesia, and Thailand.

In 2008, I received the “Emerging Leaders in Asian Newsroom” Fellowship by the Asian Center for Journalism, allowing me to pursue a Master of Arts degree in Journalism at the Ateneo de Manila University. The Asian Center for Journalism also awarded me a three-month grant in 2006 to study conflict and peace reporting.

I graduated with a journalism degree (cum laude) from the University of the Philippines.
