PEOPLE’S Journal Tonight (PJT) marks today (September 24) its 50th year of serving the country and meeting the information needs of the Filipino people.
Since its inception 50 years ago, the bilingual tabloid, published by the Philippine Journalists, Inc. (PJI), has remained a household name not only in the country but abroad.
After five decades, PT is very much “alive and kicking” despite the endless challenges and obstacles.
Of course, this is not surprising because the highly-respected and widely-read tabloid, whose editor-in-chief is veteran lady journalist Tess Lapuz-Lardizabal, is committed to responsible journalism.
Aware of the proliferation of “fake news,” Lardizabal makes it a point to always remind PT editors and reporters to verify “lahat ng ng mga natatanggap nilang impormasyon.”
The late PJI editor-in-chief Augusto “Gus” B. Villanueva founded People’s Tonight with two other veteran newsmen.
As vanguard of the truth and justice, People’s Tonight marks its milestone with a humble celebration at the PJI offices in historic Intramuros, Manila.
Today, September 24, People’s Tonight vows to dedicate more decades in being the country’s humble but essential source of news. It commits to remain an ally of the people and the government in the noble crusade to uplift Pinoys’ lives and make the Philippines world-class in all aspects.
Amid the challenges, People’s Tonight remains on top, thanks to its loyal legion of readers.
Maraming salamat po!
