ABS-CBN sports show host Boyet Sison dies at 58

Veteran ABS-CBN sports show host Jose “Boyet” Javelona Sison has passed away. He was 58.

A family member confirmed it to ABS-CBN News on Saturday, April 16.

Boyet was hospitalized last week due to stomach pain that lasted for days. The following day, he revealed that his CT scan result showed that his large intestine was blocked, so he sought a second opinion.

He then underwent an operation on April 14, and died two days later due to cardiac arrest.

Boyet was a regular sports show host on ANC and DZMM until the network was denied a franchise in 2020. He co-hosted “Fastbreak” on DZMM for 13 years with former Senator Freddie Webb, and anchored “Hardball” on ANC for 14 years with sports commentator Bill Velasco. 

His last broadcast appearance was on "TV Patrol” for the segment "Alam N’yo Ba?”.

Ging Reyes, head of ABS-CBN Integrated News, remembered Boyet as someone who "brought the sunshine into any room.”

“He was so happy to be back on TV beginning last year," she continued. "Sports and music were his expertise but I asked Boyet to try something new in 'TV Patrol' and he bravely did. For that, I will always be thankful."

“We will miss you, Papa B! You were too good for this world. Dance your way to the heavens where your beloved Mom awaits you,” she added.

Apart from being a sports show host, Boyet was also a professional DJ.
