Kalinga province Governor Joel Baac didn’t like being criticized by DZRK Radyo Ng Bayan-Tabuk host, Jerome Tabanganay. As the host neared the end of his show on Tuesday, The Governor barged into the studio, grabbed the mic and struggled with the broadcaster.
The radio program also had a live webcam streaming video, which The Governor didn’t know about.
The Governor denied that he intentionally injured the host. The next day the government-owned station did not broadcast, in protest of The Governor’s attempt to silence a critical broadcaster.
