Inquirer Bandera goes fully digital: IPI official statement
The print version of award-winning Inquirer Libre and masa-favorite Inquirer Bandera takes a final bow on July 5, 2020 as it transitions to online through one of the affiliate companies of the Inquirer Group of Companies (IGC). IPI chief operating officer Rene Reinoso said that “this move is in response to its audience media consumption behavior so that it can serve a wider base of readers through the advantages of the digital platform.”
We look back to the success of Inquirer Libre as the first ever free publication read by MRT and LRT riders. It brought smiles and laughter to the weary commuters as they read the “Kapalaran” horoscope for the day; elevated their spirits with the prayer for the day; and became informed with current events through Inquirer’s brand of journalism. Inquirer Bandera on the other hand, changed the image of tabloids in the Philippines by presenting smut-free pages full of entertainment stories and local news.
“We would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, partners and our passionate employees who have supported us through the years,” Reinoso said. “As we move to online, we will continue to pursue the delivery of award-winning journalism, entertaining news and inspiring stories”, he added.
