COMPANY HISTORY

Malaya means “free” in the Filipino language. Founded in 1981 as a Tagalog newspaper by Jose Burgos Jr., Malaya shifted to English when its sister publication, We Forum, was closed down by the Marcos government in 1983 after it came out with a story exposing the fake medals of former strongman.

During the politically Marcos troubled years of 1983 to 1986, Malaya was at the forefront of giving the public the truth.

The end of the Marcos regime in February 1986 brought changes to the ownership of Malaya. Burgos sold the newspaper to veteran journalist Amado “Jake ” P. Macasaet, who was then Malaya’s business editor.

Throughout all these changes, Malaya has adhered its mission of giving the public the truth fairly and responsibly. The commitment continues. (Ellen Tordesillas).
