An instantly recognizable face on the local events stage and perhaps the loudest voice on air, JK has earned a reputation for being one of the most energetic radio jocks in recent years. As one of The Straits Times’ “DJs under 30 to look out for”, JK’s exuberant personality and humour has been a mainstay in local radio since 2010.
In his time at Power 98FM, JK has spearheaded many campaigns for a variety of clients including Ben & Jerry’s, Clear Men, Red Bull, and Nestle. Particularly, project “Operation Command & Deliver” (targeted at National Servicemen) for SingTel, won a Singapore Media Award for “Best Use of Radio”. This helped SingTel garner a 30% increase in Youth Plan Signups.
Experienced and excellent in interviews, JK has hosted stars like Mel B of the Spice Girls, Andy Cole & Denis Irwin of Manchester United, F1 legend Mark Webber, Olympic champion Allyson Felix, as well as YouTube stars like Bethany “MacBarbie” Mota, David Choi and Tosh Zhang.
JK is also particularly well known for hosting races. These include Nike’s We Run SG, the 2XU Compression Run, The SAFRA Singapore Bay Run, and many more. His hosting repertoire stretches from intimate to large-scale events, with clients like MINI, Exxon Mobil, SONY, American Express, NIKE, Reebok, Real Estate World Asia, LG Electronics and MINDEF.
JK is an alumnus of the University of Western Australia, and was the face for their UWA Open Day campaign in Singapore. He is also a massive football fan with a passion for sports, and dreams of being a football commentator one day. JK is engaged and hopes to acquire his dream flat at McNair Road, with a MINI Cooper, 2 beagles, and 3 kids.
