Life Story & Timeline
In May 8, 2018, his sister Wanda Tulfo Teo resigned from her post after the Commission on Audit revealed she directed the placement of P60 million in tourism ads to Kilos Pronto, a blocktimer show on PTV-4, despite lack of a memorandum of agreement or contract. Kilos Pronto is produced and hosted by Teo’s brothers Ben Tulfo and Erwin Tulfo, both are allied to Rodrigo Duterte. Teo stressed that she ‘did not know’ that her own brothers were running the very specific television show she sent 60 million pesos to. The Tulfo brothers afterwards promised that they will return the 60 million pesos of government fund that they received from their sister. In June 17, 2018 it was revealed that Erwin and Ben Tulfo have not yet returned the 60 million in government funds that Wanda Teo gave them during her stint as tourism secretary. In August 2018, under a Senate hearing, Tulfo and his siblings declared that they will never return the money they got from the Department of Tourism, sparking nationwide outrage and backlash.
On June 2017, Ben and Erwin decided to cut ties with TV5. He also pulled out BITAG Live and later moved to PTV-4.
However, Ben Tulfo had to part ways with UNTV on January, 2017, and then transferred to a new home, the state-run channel PTV-4. In June of the same year, Erwin Tulfo, hosted Kilos Pronto together with his brother after parting ways with TV5.
In October, 2016, Kilos Pronto successfully launched as a full-blown one hour program at UNTV. The show was hosted by Ben Tulfo together with Alex Santos and the late Nikka Alejar. Similar to the segment’s roots, it was also a fast-paced program featuring call-to-action public service. However, instead of being a single segment, the show covered different complaints (ranging from local disputes and anomalies) and featured tourist attractions, delicacies, and other tourism-related events through a segment called “Travel Pass”.
2013 was a rough year for TV5 as it faced ailing finances. This does not stop him from staying as a talent-host for T3 together with Erwin and Raffy. However, T3 officially folded up on April 2016. This caused the brothers to part ways with separate commitments within the network.
In March 2013, Ben conducted changes to his shows. His daily analysis show, BITAG Live, moved to 92.3 News FM which simulcasts at AksyonTV. From here, he officially concluded his contract with UNTV. In October of the same year, TV5 was later marred with financial limitations, which prompted Ben to move both BITAG and Pinoy US Cops to PTV-4. BITAG Live was unaffected with these changes, thus, allowing him to host his daily show as well.
Right after the financial fiasco at TV5 back in 2013, BITAG together with Pinoy US Cops were moved to PTV-4 and later considered as syndicated programs from 2014 up to the present. Since then, Ben did not accept any exclusive contracts from other media networks.
In the last quarter of 2012, TV5 offered Ben an exclusive contract for BITAG. This move prompted him to terminate his contract with IBC-13 and pull out BITAG on ABS-CBN TFC, a result of the said contract.
In 2011, TV5 offered Ben to co-anchor with his two other brothers for T3. In addition, Ben offered TV5 his Pinoy US Cops to be shown at TV5’s sister television station AksyonTV.
As of 2011, BITAG and BITAG Live were still airing on their respective channels. BITAG was with IBC-13, while BITAG Live aired in the morning on UNTV.
For eight years, BITAG is still running strong at IBC-13 and UNTV. However, Ben’s Bahala si Tulfo was changed to BITAG Live. In 2010, ABS-CBN’s The Filipino Channel (TFC) wanted to show BITAG on their channel, and was subsequently offered a timeslot for BITAG to be shown overseas.
Erwin later joined Ben at UNTV in 2006. Bahala Si Tulfo was later renamed to Tulfo Brothers: Bahala si Ben at Erwin. However, in June of the same year, Erwin left to host Isumbong Mo – Tulfo Brothers at RPN-9. Ben went solo again and renamed the show back to its original title.
On July 4, 2005, UNTV Channel 37’s Daniel Razon offered him to join UNTV and be one of their anchors. He became one of the hosts of Pilipinas, Gising Ka Na Ba? which was immediately followed by Bahala si Tulfo from 9 AM to 10:30 AM after What’s Up Doc?. It was also simulcast at DZME.
The show ran for 2 years on ABC5. But, Ben was offered a primetime slot together with a co-production contract by Intercontinental Broadcasting Corporation (IBC-13) back in 2004. After signing the contract immediately, Bitag began airing on its first episode with IBC-13, marking his big-break on Philippine television.
While BST Tri-Media was conceived in 2002, he became a columnist for Philippine Star’s Tagalog counterparts: “Pilipino Star Ngayon” and “Pang Masa”. As of 2017, he is still writing for these columns.
During a Maundy Thursday (March 28) back in 2002, the idea of a documentary reality (often shortened as “docu-reality”) show was conceived during a vacation at the Plantation Bay in Mactan, Cebu. From there, BITAG was born.
He then formed BST Tri-media Production (Now known as BITAG Media Unlimited Incorporated) to produce BITAG as a block timer. Its official launch was on the 14th of September 2002, a date often mistaken by fans and former production staff to be its original “anniversary”. The show was aired on ABC Channel 5 (Now TV5). BITAG focuses on ensnaring criminals and their modus operandi, and they also feature drug raids in coordination with the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency and other law enforcement elements.
Ben later returned to the field of broadcast media in 2001. His program, “Bahala si Tulfo” (Now BITAG Live) was later offered a mid-morning time slot by DZME. He was later offered to be the Editor in Chief for Manila Standard, then he wrote his column for “Saksi Ngayon”, a sister publication of Manila Standard.
From 1998 to 2000, Ben ventured in food extrusion technology, a direction that is completely different from his roots. His clients include Universal Robina, Purina, and Feedmix, an agriculture company in the Philippines. Most of the marketed extrusion utilities came from a Kansas-based food extrusion manufacturer.
In 1996, Ben was the brains behind the TV show Bitag and was aired on RPN-9. Mon hosted the program but after its successful launch, Ben left the show. Then in 1997, he launched Philippines Most Wanted (patterned closely to America’s Most Wanted) on PTV-4 but later expanded from TV to radio (through DZXL (defunct)). The program was hosted together with his brother, Raffy. However, after a year of hosting Philippines Most Wanted, he left the program which in turn, leaving Raffy to go solo.
