Icban sets modest goal as Press Secretary

...
In reply to a question thrown by a reporter, Crispulo Icban Jr., editor-in-chief of the Manila Bulletin, said he will do his best to discharge the duties and responsibilities of the office, although, he hastened to add, he is more comfortable behind a news desk.
"I'm only on loan from the Bulletin," Icban told the journalists, mostly members of the Malacanang Press Corps. "Five months, and then I will take my place among you once again."
Icban had just dropped by the office of Undersecretary Romeo Junia for an informal chat when reporters and cameramen came in droves for an "ambush interview."
According to Icban, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo had asked him to join her administration the day after the death of Press Secretary Cerge Remonde on Tuesday, Jan. 19.
...
Icban is expected to take his oath of office on Monday, after the nine-day mourning period for the late Cabinet member will have elapsed.
He told reporters that he will hold briefings only after Cabinet meetings. On other days, he explained, Gary Olivar, Charito Planas, and Ricardo Saludo, the three spokespersons, will take over.
Asked what can he hope to accomplish in five months, Icban said his job is to inform the public of the current administration's accomplishments, with the media serving as conduit. He acknowledged the fact that the President suffers from a low popularity rating, but history, he said, will make the final determination of her effectiveness as a leader.
Icban graduated in 1954, with a bachelor's degree in English, magna cum laude, at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City.
He was editor-in-chief of the Philippine Collegian, the university's student paper.
Upon graduation, he joined the Manila Times as general assistant in the editorial department, then as reporter covering the Department of Foreign Affairs, and, finally, as editorial writer. He was named news editor, a position he held until the paper was closed down in 1972, following the declaration of martial law.
Two years later, Icban joined the Manila Bulletin as consultant to the publisher and later as news editor. He became editor-in-chief on Nov. 25, 2003.

In 1966-67, he was one of 12 American and six international newsmen in the annual Nieman Fellowship program at Harvard University in Massachusetts.
Icban served as professorial lecturer in journalism and English at the Philippine Women's University (PWU) from 1956 to 1957 and at the UP-Diliman from 1958 to 1973.
