Journalists honor “Chatters and Platters” host

Local media practitioners and Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo tendered a testimonial dinner to Atty. Rolando Del Carmen, Dumaguete’s iconic host of the “Chatters and Platters” morning show, that dealt on political and societal issues more than 50 years ago.

Mayor Remollo hosted the Monday dinner with journalists in honor of Del Carmen, a known philanthropist and a friend to both Dumaguete City and Silliman University. He is now based in Houston, Texas, USA.

The occasion was also a forum in which Del Carmen was able to share his insights and values on how an ethical journalist ought to behave, to responsibly and fairly advocate on issues with impact on the lives of the public.
