FOR 18 years, Sun.Star Davao has proven that ethical journalism does make good business sense. With its strong commitment for the common good, the paper remains to be trusted.
Here are some reasons why avid readers keep on reading Sun.Star:
"We prefer reading Sun.Star Davao because it's informative. Madaming news, and at the same time may mga articles dun about science and technology, meron din opinion, which is very rich of information," -- Superintendent Filmore B. Escobal, acting chief of the Regional Police Community Relations Division of Police Regional Office in Davao Region.
"Sun.Star Davao sets the standard of a local tabloid publication and the rest followed," -- Senior Superintendent Ronald M. dela Rosa, director of the Davao City Police Office.
"Well, Sun.Star Davao, for the local kasi mas comprehensive siya. Hindi kailangan mahaba masyado pero andun na yung information na gusto mong basahin, direct to the point kung baga and walang pamulitika, balance," - Col. Casiano Monilla, Task Force Davao chief.
"We need to be grounded on what's going on around, especially in the local communities. Kung anu-ano ang mga nangyayari, kasi kumbaga, it's not about on what we are doing, but also what other sectors are doing. Sun.Star Davao is our lead source in terms of what is happening around," -- Major General Ariel Bernardo, commander of the Philippine Army's 10th Infantry Division.
"Sun.Star Davao is very comprehensive and very exciting. It gives a lot of ideas and opinions. We really love reading it because it is very impartial, and the reporters behind are very good," -- Major Jacob Thaddeus Obligado, commander of the Philippine Army's 10th Infantry Division's Civil Military Operation Battalion.
"As far as I noticed Sun.Star Davao is very accurate, timely and malawak yung coverage ng mga news items. Ibig sabihin, if gusto mo mag-hanap ng news on political developments, security, economic and social nandun. Makukuha mo rin talaga the whole picture ng bansa. Isang paper lang binabasa mo pero kuha mo na yung news nang iba't ibang areas," -- Ednar Dayanghirang, peace panel of the Government of the Philippines.
"From its genesis in Peryodiko Dabaw to its present form as Sun.Star Davao, the paper carries a distinctly Dabawenyo approach in delivering and reporting the news and analyzing the events -- local, national and even international -- that affects us. Sun.Star Davao is a trusted paper because it’s credible," -- Lawyer Carlos Isagani Zarate, Bayan Muna party-list representative.
"It is the best source of what is happening in Davao City and its neighboring provinces. It delivers a well balanced reporting of the most current events and issues that interest the people of our beloved city. Any visitor would be properly guided of what is going on in our city," -- Lawyer Ben Joseph Tesiorna.
"Sun.Star Davao has the accurate information. It's impartial. It's updated. And it's a reliable paper to read," -- Marian Joy Castro, teacher of Kumon Learning Center.
"Sun.Star Davao is a reliable paper to read because it's updated. I'm reading online because of my job. At kahit malayo ako sa lugar na nilakihan ko, at least alam ko pa rin yung nangyayari not only in Davao City but also in Davao Region and its neighboring areas," -- Richard Lubaton, of Hyundai Merchant Marine.
