The four journalists died while reporting on the typhoon "Yolanda" in Tacloban City , according to the National Union of Journalists (NUJP). In a Facebook post, NUJP chair Rowena Paraan said that " the list of media casualties is also building" along with the growing death toll from the tragedy.

The deaths of Archie Globio and Malou Realino working for the Tacloban- based DyBR Apple Radio were confirmed. The area was one of the hard hit by the typhoon. Paraan also said that two other radio broadcasters of Aksyon Radyo Tacloban were killed.
"The news that I have been dreading: that we have colleagues who have died from Yolanda's wrath. They are Allan Medina and Ronald Vinas of Aksyon Radyo Tacloban," Paraan wrote. At least four other media workers from DyBR have been reported missing, namely Babay Jaca, Lulu Palencia and Jun Estoya.
