Prominent entertainment journalist Ricky Lo has passed away at the age of 75 years old last night (May 4).
Lo, who’s a veteran showbiz editor, writer, and TV personality, died from a stroke 10 p.m. on Tuesday – his sister Susan Lee told ABS-CBN.
He started his career as a staff writer for defunct media outlet Philippine Daily Express in the 1960s, wherein he went on to publish his ‘FunFare’ column.
After his stint in the Daily Express, Lo became Entertainment Editor at Philippine Star in the 1980s, holding the position until his passing.
“You will be remembered, Sir Ricky,” the publication announced on Twitter. “It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Entertainment editor and columnist Ricky Lo on May 4, 2021.”
Besides his print media exploits, Lo also appeared in television – co-hosting shows like The Buzz, StarTalk, and Showbiz Stripped, The Ricky Lo Exclusives, and CelebriTV.
Although a well-known fixture on television screens, Lo decided to retire from TV in 2015.
In his long-standing career, Lo was able to publish two books compiling his written works and exclusive interviews – ‘Star-studded and Coversations with Ricky Lo.’
