Anthony Pascal, fondly known as Konpè Filo, was born on March 11, 1953, and his journey in the field of journalism was nothing short of iconic.

Sadly, on July 31, 2020, the world bid farewell to Konpè Filo, this remarkable soul, as he took his last breath in Mirebalais, Haiti.

His unique storytelling and captivating voice endeared him to audiences, making him a beloved figure in the hearts of many.

On the other side of the spectrum lies Liliane Pierre-Paul, born on June 16, 1953, and she too was a legendary journalist whose impact on Haitian society was profound.

Her tireless dedication to truth and unwavering commitment to justice earned her the status of an icon in the field.

However, fate dealt a different hand, as she departed this world on July 31, 2023, in Port-au-Prince, leaving a void that would be deeply felt by all.

Two individuals, born in the same year, set on distinct paths, but ultimately united by the same day of their passing. Both Anthony Pascal and Liliane Pierre-Paul have left an enduring legacy, inspiring countless journalists and citizens alike.

Both journalists Anthony Pascal (Konpè Filo) and Liliane Pierre-Paul, shared the studio of Radio Haiti-Inter, owned by the influential and renowned Haitian journalist, Jean Dominique, in their early professional years.

This common starting point highlights their intertwined paths, which would later see them become legendary figures in Haitian media, leaving a lasting impact on the industry.

Though they are no longer with us, their indomitable spirits will continue to live on, forever etched in the annals of Haitian journalistic history.
