Guarin, who originally hailed from Maco town in Compostela Valley, came to the city in the mid-90s after he was hired as reporter of radio station dxES Bombo Radyo.
He worked for three years at Bombo Radyo, where he met his wife, before moving to dxBB Super Radyo as its chief reporter. Guarin was promoted to program supervisor, assistant manager and was the station’s manager when it closed down about five years ago.
In the May 2010 elections, Guarin ran but lost his bid for a city council seat under an opposition slate here.
