Biography[edit]

Newspaper and radio[edit]

Tulfo first wrote the regular newspaper column Bahala si Tulfo for the tabloid newspaper Saksi Ngayon (and later Philippine Star's sister publication Pilipino Star Ngayon). He then worked on a daily morning show DZME 1530 on DZME. He also guested on Magic 899 DWTM's Boys Night Out.

Bitag[edit]

He then launched his own television program Bitag on September 14, 2002 at television network Associated Broadcasting Company (ABC). ABC later acquired the rights to broadcast the Philippine Basketball Association games and let go expendable programs, including Bitag. Mr. Tulfo secured a slot at another television network, Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC). On October 14, 2011 Bitag was returned of his original television network Associated Broadcasting Company also known as TV5

Later, Ben Tulfo launched Bahala si Bitag (now Bitag Live!) on UNTV-37, a weekday morning show, and continues to show recaps and episode highlights from their main show.The show was then undergone reformatting and is now called Bitag Live. The show focuses on hard hitting commentaries regarding various anomalies in the Philippine government especially.

Return to TV5[edit]

Ben's return to TV5, in its new incarnation, was surprising but not unexpected. He teams up with brothers Erwin and Tol' Raffy in T3: Kapatid Sagot Kita. He still leads BITAG, formerly in UNTV, and now shows in Radyo5 92.3 News FM and AksyonTV, after his contract expires in IBC-13 and decides not to renew.
