Ramon "Mon" Teshiba Tulfo Jr. (born November 20, 1946) is a TV host, radio broadcaster and columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Early life and career[edit]

He is the eldest of 10 siblings (7 Boys, 3 Girls). He's the son of the late (Ret.) Colonel Ramon Tulfo, Sr., who was a member of Philippine Constabulary and Caridad Teshiba-Tulfo, a housewife. Ramon Tulfo is the host of 23-year running program, "Isumbong Mo kay Tulfo!" a public service program on DWIZ 882Khz. In his hour-long show, he and his co-host Alin Ferrer tackle community problems, including complaints filed against government officials, policemen.


On May 6, 2012, Raymart Santiago, along with Claudine Barretto and his 8-man entourage, assaulted a known journalist and senior citizen, Ramon Tulfo, due to Ramon purportedly using his mobile phone to take photos of Claudine screaming at and humiliating a ground attendant of Cebu Pacific concerning missing luggage which supposedly contained asthma medicine for their friend's children. This occurred within NAIA Terminal 3 in a location not covered by CCTV. Witnesses state that the brawl began when Raymart and his entourage surrounded Tulfo and demanded that he hand over his phone. Ramon refused and the assault commenced.

A video of the brawl that was recorded and posted on YouTube clearly shows Raymart choking Tulfo while encouraging his friends to throw punches at him. Claudine can clearly be seen attacking Tulfo as well. The airport security guards eventually stopped the attack and escorts Ramon away while Raymart follows alongside screaming obscenities at him.

A few days after the incident, Claudine Barretto filed assault and child abuse charges on Ramon Tulfo as they claim that he (Tulfo) initiated the attack. Claudine also states that she has a witness to her claim. The name of the witness was not given and he has not given his account of the incident to anybody but Claudine. The rationale behind the child abuse charges, according to Claudine, comes from the fact(?) that Ramon (allegedly) begins the assault in front of her children, traumatizing them.

Upon questioning the ground attendant Claudine was heckling, it was Raymart and their entourage who had initiated the assault.
