UNIVERSITY OF THE PHILIPPINES RESERVE OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS

Vanguard Luis D. Beltran
Class of 1956

Vanguard Luis D. Beltran was a staple of Filipino life. We listened to his radio program at dawn. We read his newspaper column during breakfast. His evening TV shows entertained and informed us. Louie was the “King of Tri-Media” – a giant in radio, print, and television.

He was a keen observer of Philippine society. His hard-hitting and fearless commentaries often made us take a long, hard look at ourselves and work for a better future.
