Eugenio Lopez, Jr. (Kapitan of ABS-CBN)


Eugenio Lopez, Jr. (1926-1999) also known as Geny was born in 1926. He was also known as the "Kapitan of ABS-CBN". His father, Eugenio Lopez, Sr., was the owner of the publication Manila Chronicle and Chronicle Broadcasting Network.

In 1956, he made equipments for the radio and television in ABS-CBN which their family owned. He would later lead this company as its President, until 1972, when Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law, curtailing the free press and had all media outlets shut down.

Geny was then imprisoned in Quezon City as a tactic by Marcos to acquire the properties of the Lopez family. While he was incarcerated, his mother alongside his family advocated for Geny's freedom. His father also died during this time.

After the 1986 People Power revolution, he re-acquired ABS-CBN and re-established it to become a prominent media conglomerate in the Philippines. He died in 1999 in Quezon City and his son, Eugenio "Gabby" Lopez III became the Chief Executive Officer after his father's passing.
