Negros Daily Bulletin Turns 51

Negros Daily Bulletin, the vigilant community newspaper in Bacolod and in the Western Visayas, turns 51 today and 17 as a daily.

NDB started as a weekly paper in 1960 and as a daily publication in 1994 up to the present.

Its mission is to fulfill a noble goal in this profession in the end by contributing its humble share in the strengthening freedom and democracy in this part of the country and the world.

The late Lino Villanueva Moles, a veteran newspaper-man-novelist in his time was the founder and first Editor-Publisher of Negros Bulletin and the late Santiago "Santi" was his co-founder who acted as Business Manager until 1966 when Moles gave way as Editor-Publisher in order to assume a government post as Provincial Standards Officer of Negros Occidental under the Bureau of Commerce.

Ruperto "Pert" G. Toga, protege of Moles, worked hand in hand with Alacapa, the Publisher, as cub News Reporter, Circulation Manager, Managing Editor.

Toga finally became Editor-in-Chief of the daily paper, and the first President of the Negros Bulletin Publications when the publication was duly incorporated with the Securities and Exchange Commission in 1995.

From then on, the paper sailed through rough waters but survived the hard times, notably under Martial Law in 1972 through 1985 to become a twice-weekly in 1991, a thrice-weekly in 1993 and finally as a daily in 1994 to date. It started full color editions on July 7, 2007.

In the year 2000, 2001 and 2003, NDB garnered the national award in succession for "Best in Environmental Reporting.

The paper rose from its humble beginnings and its ascent, arduous as it was, to its present stature in full color has always been founded on five guideposts: excellent and non-partisan content; responsive and responsible reporting; a continuing search for improvements and innovations; its unrelentless advocacy for truth and justice, and, its love and respect for its readers and advertisers.

The Bulletin will pursue its goals and objectives religiously with the end in mind of participating effectively in nation-building. We aver that the Bulletin exists not only for economic gains, but more particularly to inculcate in our readers and advertisers – hopes for the progress and development of our country. Likewise, to give our younger generation visions of the roads ahead – which in due time they will overcome.

The Bulletin is inspired by the principle of  a famous author, Og Mandino, that says: "That where the desert ends- green grass will grow."

On the other hand the paper's admonition to its reporters and feature writers is, "First draft, write with your hearts, but in the second draft, write with your head."

Today, as the staff, reporters and everyone in the publication celebrate NDB's 51st anniversary, look forward for more challenges and rivers and mountains to cross. As they face these roadblocks with faith in their hearts and minds with the Lords blessings, they can overcome all of those successfully.

More power and long live NDB!
