              "The Catanduanes Tribune, the oldest news weekly in the province of Catanduanes, was founded in 1981 by publisher-editor and provincial board member Fredeswindo Tomagan Gianan, Sr. It actually began publishing in 1967 but the declaration of martial law in 1972 cut short its existence. From the first 1981 issue,  the Tribune has emerged as the  most reliable, fair and crusading newspaper in the history of Catanduanes, earning its publisher The Outstanding Catandunganon Award in 1998. With the founder's death last May 2000, the paper is now being run by sons Fred Jr. and Edwin, with Fernan A. Gianan, Joel Son Panti, Jex Lucero, Tang Tacio of Isip-isipon ta, and Dr. Vietrez P. David-Abella and the Cathedral clergy as regular columnists."
