Radio DZRH on Tuesday apologized to Vice President Leni Robredo over an erroneous report that claimed people were paid to join a motorcade in Northern Samar province in support of her presidential bid.

The station said it suspended its reporter who claimed without proper interviews or attribution that organizers of the pink caravan pocketed the money that was supposed to go to participants.

"Hindi namin kinokonsinte ito. Hindi namin policy ito. Ngunit tinatanggap po namin ang pananagutan sa pagkakamaling ito kasunod ng aming pagtiyak sa publiko na higit pa naming pagsisikapan ang isang balanced, fair and responsible reporting sa aming multimedia platforms," said station manager Cesar Chavez.
