Michelle So, Ruth Palo, Glazyl Masculino give us a peep.

How has the pandemic affected media in the Visayas and Mindanao? How do they deal with fake news during this pandemic? VisMin Speaks tackles these and other issues as we learn more about VisMin media through the eyes of women journalist leaders.

Because March is Women’s Month, VisMin Speaks host Chassy Cortes chats with Michelle So, Ruth Palo, and Glazyl Masculino. Besides, March 2021 marks a year after the imposition of a strict lockdown in the Philippines. This VisMin Speaks session should be interesting.

Chassy Cortes grills 3 women journalist leaders

Multi-media personality, host, and voice-over artist, Chassy Cortes, will host VisMin Speaks and interview the three women journalist leaders. But who is she?

The challenge to become a radio personality attracted this young Cebuana talent to Sri Lanka some five years ago. She then saw herself turn into a celebrity of sorts, a household name in this foreign land.

Now, her voice could be the most recognizable on Sri Lankan radio. The Sri Lankans so loved her, they chose her to represent Sri Lanka in the Asia-Pacific press junket of Spiderman 2, Men in Black, and Angry Birds 2 in Bali, Indonesia. She interviewed Chris Hemsworth, Tom Holland, and John Cohen. She was also the official voiceover of the Colombo Fashion Week.

Yet, Chassy is primarily a Cebuana. Finding herself in Cebu during the lockdown, she could not just rest and stay home. She will host VisMin Speaks, starting at 2:00 pm this March 26.
