Senators to grill Teo, Tulfo on P60-M PTV4 ad deal
Former Tourism Secretary Wanda Tulfo-Teo and her brother, Ben Tulfo, are expected to appear at a hearing of the Senate blue ribbon committee on Tuesday to answer questions about the controversial P60-million advertising deal between the Department of Tourism (DOT) and Tulfo’s Bitag Media Unlimited Inc.
The panel, chaired by Sen. Richard Gordon, will begin its inquiry into the DOT’s placements of advertisement in “Kilos Pronto,” the public service program produced by Bitag Media, hosted by Ben Tulfo and his brother, Erwin, and aired on government-run PTV4.
Gordon’s staff said Teo, who quit her post in May following a public uproar over the deal, and Ben Tulfo had confirmed their attendance at the hearing. —DJ Yap
