CyberPress’ No. 2 official announces retirement from the org

After 14 committed years of service and dedication to the Information Technology Journalists Association of the Philippines (ITJAP) aka CyberPress, Red Samar, IT Editor of the Manila Bulletin is retiring from the organization effective today.

Samar is leaving his position of Vice President for Externals to concentrate on his job covering the IT beat for the Manila Bulletin, following the merger of the InfoTech section within the business section of the paper starting March 16, 2010.

In 1996, Samar together with fellow journalists covering the IT beat, helped co-found CyberPress, the first professional organization of IT journalists in Asia. The pioneering officers and members of ITJAP were inducted by President Fidel V. Ramos in Malacanang Palace.

ITJAP is registered with Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a non-stock, non-profit professional organization.

CyberPress expresses its sincerest appreciation to Red Samar for steering the presscorp in his various capacities as officer in the last 14 years that he was associated with ITJAP to help the organization become what it is today. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
