Andanar out? Jay Sonza eyed as new PCOO chief


Another broadcaster may soon take the helm of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) after several gaffes— some of which were downright embarrassing— happened under the leadership of Secretary Martin Andanar.

Politiko has learned that former broadcaster Jay Sonza is being considered as the new Communications Secretary.

Sonza reportedly told Malacañang he is interested in the post.

Working in Sonza’s favor is his closeness to Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.

Politiko’s source said Sara backs Sonza’s appointment even if he counts several people as enemies.

In case Sonza’s appointment pushes through, Andanar will be moved to another office. It remains a mystery, though, if he will retain his Cabinet rank or he will be “demoted” to a lower position.
