Jing Magsaysay, the former head of the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC), described the late news anchor Angelo Castro Jr. as a “visionary” and a “go-getter.”

“He was a go-getter. He knew what he wanted and went out to claim it,” Magsaysay said in a tribute for Castro on Tuesday.

Magsaysay said Castro, who was his first boss at ABS-CBN, made it a point to study technology and “know the tools of the trade.”

“If there is one thing no one can question about Angelo, it is his passion. He loved to live. It was his energy that helped make ABS-CBN News the best organization. ABS and the industry owe him. We owe him,” he added. -- ANC, April 10, 2012
