LEGAZPI CITY – A radio anchor was shot dead Friday morning by still unidentified gunmen in Daraga town, Albay.

Based on the report reaching Bicol police headquarters, local radio station DWZR’s Joey Llana was leaving home for work around 5 a.m., maneuvering his car out of the home garage in Barangay Peñafrancia, when the suspects suddenly emerged and attacked him.

Citing the initial report, Sr. Insp. Maria Luisa Calubaquib, Bicol police spokesperson, said the victim was on his way to the radio station in this city for his morning program. Llana was reportedly a hard-hitting radio commentator handling a block time public affairs program at radio station DWZR Hypersonic Broadcasting Network (HBN).
