Charo Santos among Golden Wheel awardees
MANILA -- ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio, actress-host Kris Aquino and broadcast journalist Karen Davila were among the recipients of this year’s Golden Wheel Awards.
The awards were given out by the Quezon City government and Rotary International District 3780 last October 26 at Crowne Plaza Hotel in Ortigas.
Santos was recognized for her work in corporate media management, which was credited for ABS-CBN's growth as it achieved profit margins, advertising revenues and leadership in nationwide TV ratings.
Aquino, meanwhile, was cited for her achievements as host and actress.
Last year, she was named the Most Influential Endorser of the Year by the Educators and Critics Circle Award for Media Communication, Best Lifestyle Program Host by the Golden Screen TV Awards, and Best Female Celebrity Talk Show by the PMPC Star Awards for TV.
Davila, on the other hand, was acknowledged for her contributions in broadcast journalism.
In her more than 15 years in the industry, Davila has already received numerous local and international citations, including one from the New York Festival. She was also named one of the Ten Outstanding Young Men Awards for Broadcast Journalism in 2008.
Now on its second year, the Golden Wheel Awards honors individuals who have shown passion, excellence and service in their respective fields of expertise while inspiring others.
