Martin Andanar (born August 21, 1974) is a former Filipino television news executive and news anchor, radio commentator, podcaster, audio blogger and voice-over artist who last worked for TV5. He is currently the Secretary of the Presidential Communications Office of the Philippines under the Duterte administration.
Andanar was the head of News5 Everywhere, the online news video and audio portal of TV5, formerly anchored Aksyon sa Umaga and Punto Asintado on Radyo5 92.3 News FM and AksyonTV, sister stations of TV5. He was also a voice-over talent of News5, AksyonTV, and Radyo5 92.3 News FM.
In June 2016, it was announced that Andanar will be joining President Rodrigo Duterte's administration as the Secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (later renamed as the Presidential Communications Office), replacing Sonny Coloma. He will supervise the operations of government's news and information agencies, television and radio stations including PIA, PNA, PTV-4, IBC-13 and PBS-Radyo ng Bayan, and will also act as a presidential spokesperson in press conferences by the Malacañang Press Corps. He assumed the secretaryship on June 30, 2016.
Andanar lives with his wife, Alelee, and two kids in Manila.
Martin graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Social and Political Studies & Film and Media Studies at the University of Ballarat in Australia, a school known for its top Mining program. He finished his Master in Entrepreneurship at the Asian Institute of Management. Andanar pursued further doctorate studies at the University of the Philippines Diliman but found it hard to balance work with education. In 2008, along with 30 Filipino Youth Leaders, the US State Department sent Andanar to Northern Illinois University for a one month Fellowship. On June 2009, he went to Georgetown University in Washington DC for a Leadership seminar. He also completed a Senior Executive Fellows Program at the Harvard Kennedy School, Harvard University on March 2010 thereafter. In 2015, he also attended a Public Communications Executive Course at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy in Singapore.
A considerable amount of his practical education came from managing podcast.ph and audio.ph, an independent podcast production and audio blog Martin initiated. Further enlightenment was achieved when Andanar hosted his own podcast show called "Martin's Mancave" which had a small but dedicated anonymous following.
