Boyet Sison, 58, passes away


One of Philippine sports’ most colorful personalities passed away on Black Saturday.

Boyet Sison (April 25, 1963-April 16, 2022) died on Saturday. He was 58 years old.

Sison had undergone intestinal surgery on the morning of April 14 at Delos Santos Medical Center. Two days after the surgery, he had a cardiac event that caused his passing.

Sison was a vibrant fellow, never losing his passion for both sports and music.

Sison was born to legendary public relations guru Ady Sison and Rebecca Javelona Sison in Manila.

The bubbly personality out of Lourdes School of Mandaluyong started off as a disk jockey for numerous clubs in the metropolis.

But his true calling was in hosting.

During the late 90s, Sison was discovered when he guest-hosted “Saturday Night Live” — a program on DWRT 99.5.

In 2000, he called the radio cast of the Philippine Basketball Association’s games and would, later on, serve as the coliseum announcer of the league from October 2005-January 2012.

Sison would also serve as the ring announcer for local promotion Universal Reality Combat Championship and an anchor for the National Collegiate Athletic Association of the Philippines.

Sison though would be best known for his sports programs.

In 2007, he produced and hosted the sports-talk radio show “Fast Break” which aired on DZMM Teleradyo from 2007-2020.

Sison also hosted the beloved television show “Hardball”, which aired on ABS-CBN News Channel from November 2006-September 2020.

In October 2021, Sison was called up to be a segment host on TV Patrol.

Despite his hectic schedule, Sison never lost his passion for music, still hosting livestreams on his Facebook page.
