Broadcaster Ernie Baron dies of heart attack
ABS-CBN correspondent Ernie Baron, known for his moniker "the walking encyclopedia," passed away Monday morning at the age of 65, ANC reported.
His attending physician Cesar Berroya said Baron was declared dead on arrival at 9:30 a.m. at Medical Center Muntinlupa.
He said Baron may have died of silent myocardial infection or of diabetes complications.
Baron's daughter, Shirley, said his father did not answer when called for breakfast on Monday morning. She said she immediately barged into the room and rushed his unconscious father to the hospital.
Baron hosted the program Knowledge Power over radio DZMM and was the weather reporter for ABS-CBN's primetime news program TV Patrol.
may mga tao talagang trying hard maging komedyante. hinihiritan pa ang isang yumao.
Yung joke na yan na 'barong na may biyak sa likod' was spoofed by Vic Sotto nun asa Dos pa ang Eat Bulaga. Nung B-day naman ni Vic, sinuot yun (barong na may biyak sa likod) ni Ernie bilang pag-alala sa pag-iispup sa kanya. Classic yang barong joke na yan kay Ernie Baron.
