Ten Years of Howie Severino


      Among his awards, Howie Severino has twice been named Broadcast Journalist of the Year and Investigative Journalist of the year by the Rotary Club of Manila. In 2007, he was inducted into the Rotary Club of Manila's Journalism Hall of Fame. 

      "When I chose writing and newspaper reporting as my first career, I thought I was destined for a lonely life, engaged in mostly solitary pursuits. but those years turned out to be the best preparation for what I am doing now, writing, producing, and shooting documentaries for television. And it has been far from lonely. I have worked with some of the finest and most talented people in the industry. To them this DVD is dedicated. It is, after all, their product too."
