AIJC mourns death of Isagani Yambot, a passionate teacher

The Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC) has lost a committed and valuable teacher in the passing of Isagani “Gani” Yambot.

Gani was passionate in sharing his skills with young journalists and communicators inside and outside the newsroom. He was among the pioneer teachers of the AIJC. He was an easy favorite among our graduate students because of his expertise, humor, and humility. We fondly recall his early teaching days when he would read his jokes from a written script. Much later, his lectures and jokes would come spontaneously. 

The lessons the “students” learned from Gani in the classrooms and newsrooms will continue to guide them in pursuing the noble profession of journalism. This is one way of honoring Isagani Yambot - teacher, journalist, friend.
