Ninfa Leonardia: Remembering the Grand Media Icon of Negros

It has been a week since the passing of our most beloved Tita Ninfa Leonardia. As we give tribute to one of the greatest media pillars of our time, we remember her life well lived, in the name of public service through media. Her memories are very much alive in our hearts.

Her leadership, guidance and strong ethical principles made the Visayan DAILY STAR Newspaper an incorruptible institution, recognized as The No. 1 Regional Newspaper in the Philippines during her time.

Tita Ninfa has, as a multi-awarded journalist, helped shaped the history of Bacolod and Negros Occidental in her own humble way. 

More than a journalist, editor-in-chief, and President, she was a fighter for press freedom and an independent thinker. A maverick whose thoughts and ideas were ahead of her time. Editorial ethics would always come first.

She was a kind, caring, honest, and well-loved matriarch who cares deeply for her family. She will always be remembered as the legendary and genius Negrense media guru who co-founded the Philippines longest running community newspaper for more than 40 years and guided a whole new generation of responsible journalists today.*
