Former ABS-CBN News Reporter Atom Araullo confirmed his resignation in his reportial duties in TV Patrol, Bandila and ANC.

For clarity.

I quietly resigned as a news reporter of ABS-CBN a few weeks ago to explore other areas of media and to grow as a journalist. However, I continue to work with the network and our programs. My political views were not a factor in making this decision.

Having studied pressing issues based on fact and with an open mind, journalists, like any other individual, should ultimately stand up for the truth. This does not weaken our journalism, it strengthens it. Our guiding principles are fairness and accuracy. As we face tougher scrutiny from the public, we in media also strive to be more transparent and open to criticism.

I thank everyone for the support they expressed on social media. I look forward to playing my role in the debates and issues to come.

A popular gossip blog, Fashion Pulis published on Saturday morning that ABS-CBN News reporter Atom Araullo filed a resignation in the network’s integrated news and current affairs department to avoid being tagged as “biased reporter.”

Araullo, meanwhile, explained that his political views were not a factor in his resignation. Thus, he wants to explore other media platforms where he can grow more as a journalist.
