- 1st Filipino-American to anchor a national news program in the US, National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" (1989-1991)
"I primarily talk about Asian-Americans, because as a journalist I see the world - I mean I make no bones about seeing the world from my ethnic perspective. I call myself a Filipino of Asian-American descent or an Asian-American of Filipino descent and I'm in Filipino papers and Asian-American papers. So, I think clearly, I define my role as a what I call a new American, because Asian-Americans are growing in numbers."
