Bohol Chronicle: The First Fifty Years for Bohol's First & Longest Running Newspaper

 the very first issue of the Bohol Chronicle
It all began in May 16, 1954 when the Bohol Chronicle released its very first issue of a community newspaper that has become a part of everyone's Sunday habit

Fifty years after and I got a call from and eventually a meeting with Peter Dejaresco to discuss the possibility of conceptualizing & organizing the Golden Anniversary Dinner Gala & Awards Night of the Bohol Chronicle. 

Of course, I couldn't say no for after all, Sir Peter was my quondam boss when I was part of KISS 102.3 FM as deejay and announcer. I was also a regular contributor for the Bohol Chronicle as well

Imagine the thrill and excitement to be part of an event that will chronicle the 50 golden years of Bohol's most widely read newspaper

After all the important highlights were discussed and approved, I politely declined to be one of the masters of ceremonies for I believed that my full attention has to be focused as director of the live event to be held at the MetroCentre Hotel Grand Ballroom

Hosting the event were Ardie Batoy and Loi Palapos

The event was to be the hottest ticket that summer with no less than Luke Mejares, the Boholano lead vocalist of South Border, providing the entertainment for the evening

Atty. Zoilo Dejaresco Jr: Founding Editor- Publisher
The Bohol Chronicle has become what it is now because of its visionary founder, the late Atty. Zoilo Dejaresco Jr. Today, his legacy has been continued with two generations of the Dejaresco clan in the print and radio industry and has expanded not only with the bi- weekly newspaper but also with three radio broadcasting stations that have entertained and informed Boholanos for half a century already

Preparations are already afoot for the Diamond Anniversary set next year
