Esguerra currently anchors “Matters of Fact” that airs daily from 7 am to 8 am on ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel. He also has a new podcast on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and YouTube called “Facts First,” where he discusses political issues with experts and policymakers. Previously, he was one of the hosts of “Early Edition” and “Mornings @ ANC.” He also covered important national events as a correspondent and produced explainers on relevant issues and topics for the ABS-CBN News digital project “NXT.”

Other current and past ABS-CBN journalists who became McLuhan fellows include Jeff Canoy (2018), Gigi Grande (2016), Lynda Jumilla-Abalos (2012), Gerry Lirio (2006), and Luz Rimban (2003).
