BBC World News Presenter Rico Hizon recently visited The Philippines to unveil his star on the Eastwood Walk of Fame.
Rico says… “I’m really proud to be honoured with this star. I am so proud of my heritage and where I come from and to be given this star is a really exciting moment in time for me. I have worked for almost 3 decades in the news industry in both the Philippines and internationally and I couldn’t have done this without the support of all my colleagues and peers along the way – what a proud and humbling moment! I’ve still got lots of work to do as the news never stops and it’s my responsibility to report it always as fair and balanced as possible.”
