RAFFY TULFO, tagged as the King of Public Service and now a senator of the Philippines, is recognized for his remarkable contribution to the broadcast industry by the Philippine Movie Press Club (PMPC) that conferred to him the prestigious Excellence in Broadcasting Lifetime Achievement Award. 

This is an honorary star award that recognizes the service of long-time broadcast journalists in news and public affairs. 

The award has been previously given to distinguished journalists such as Luchi Cruz-Valdes, Maria Ressa, Noli De Castro, Jessica Soho, Mel Tiangco, among others. Tulfo received this award at the recently concluded 35th PMPC Star Awards held on January 28, 2023.

Joining Tulfo as this year’s Star Awards honorees is Connie Angeles, Senior Assistant Vice President and Executive Director for Health for SM Foundation, Inc., who received the Ading Fernando Lifetime Achievement Award.

With over 20 years in public service, Senator Tulfo (or “Idol Raffy” to his radio listeners and fans) has been one of TV5’s most respected broadcast personalities as he anchored the primetime newscast “Frontline Pilipinas.” 

He also soes the weekend newscast “Aksyon Weekend,” the noontime newscast “Aksyon sa Tanghali,” the morning show “Idol in Action,” and hosted the top-rated radio program on Radyo5 “Wanted sa Radyo.” 

Tulfo has carved his own niche as a man of action, eventually making him a pillar of public service in broadcasting. 

His tough and no-holds-barred persona, partnered with his quick wit and earnest desire to provide immediate assistance to those seeking help from social and civil injustices, has gained the trust of the Filipino masses nationwide who rightfully acknowledged him as the “Hari ng Public Serbis.” 

He is turning 63 on March 12. He is married to ACT-CIS Partylist Rep. Jocelyn Pua and they have two children. Their youngest, Ralph Wendell, is currently the representative of the 2nd district of Quezon City.
