GMA Network confirmed the passing of the multi-awarded media personality, who also served as senior vice president and consultant for the radio operations of the network.

"It is with profound sadness that GMA Network announces the passing of our beloved Kapuso, Mr. Miguel ‘Mike’ C. Enriquez, who peacefully joined our Creator on August 29, 2023," GMA Network said in a statement.

"The Board of Directors, management, and employees of GMA Network, Inc. deeply mourn the passing of Mr. Enriquez. His dedication to the industry will serve as an inspiration to all. We pray for the eternal repose of our beloved Kapuso," the network added.

Enriquez started his career in the broadcast industry in 1969 with the Manila Broadcasting Company.

After his tenure with MBC came to an end, the broadcaster brought his talents to the Freedom Broadcasting Radio Network and Radio Mindanao Network.

In 1995, Enriquez joined GMA Network, where his career blossomed.
