Time’s Up For Tim Yap
June 6, 2007

Just as had been feared, the Inquirer has shut the door on its young editor, eventologist Tim Yap, preventing the latter from returning to his marketing-and-events driven section upon his return from a French holiday.

According to the grapevine, editor-in-chief Leticia Jimenez-Magsanoc sent out an internal memo last week informing the staff that Yap was “no longer connected” with the newspaper.

Might as well. Yap already alerted Inquirer’s chief competition, The Philippine Star, about his impending break with the Inquirer even before he left for France to attend the just-concluded Cannes film festival.

So what, is he joining the YStyle team now? Sayang, he added spice to PDI pa naman. Great out-of-the-box ideas that I enjoyed while it lasted.

i doubt millet m would take in mr. yap. i also doubt tim would allow himself to be 'downgraded'. eitehr he comes in as section head, with no one above him, or not.

btw, i heard he didn't even make it to his annual trip to cannes because he had to try to 'fix' up all this mess.

it was inevitable that tim would be removed from pdi and since it's letty herself who ordered the sacking, there's no chance for appeal. my only question is this: what took so long?
