Colleagues in the media industry here mourn the passing of Joey Natividad, Senior Editor of Bicol Express News when he joined his Creator around 6:30 in the evening, November 3, at Bicol Medical Center, Naga City.
As one of the pillars of our online news, Natividad raises the awareness of readers on the plight of the downtrodden cannot be underestimated even before joining as one of the pioneers of Bicol Express News.
As a stringer for Associated Press aside from his collaboration with national dailies, Joey has proven what it takes to be a member of the press knowing the broad perspective of our society penning principled news stories.
He is survived by his wife Rebecca and an 11-year-old daughter.
