Boy Abunda, Cabinet Secretary?

Tatanggapin kaya ni Boy Abunda ang alok o hindi upang maging kasali siya sa Cabinet ni President-elect Noynoy Aquino?

In an interview at his Times Street home, Sen. Aquino told the press that Abunda is suited for his administration because of his "strong marketing and communication skills."

"Think about it from a marketing perspective, things that you would want to market the Philippines for. He will be a good communicator," Aquino said of Abunda, known to be a close friend of the Senator's sister, Kris Aquino.

Both Boy Abunda and Kris Aquino host two entertainment programs In ABS-CBN—the primetime showbiz news program SNN, and the Sunday showbiz talk show The Buzz.

Abunda, known as the "King of Talk," was also the Aquino family's spokesman when former President Cory Aquino died in August last year.

Aquino did not say what department he feels Abunda would be most suited. He did not deny or confirm reports that Abunda may possibly be assigned to the Department of Tourism, in a secretary-level position. "It's possible or lower. Usec [Undersecretary], Asec [Assistant Secretary] also," Aquino told the press.
