At 22, Kimberly Anne Tan already has over 7 years of hosting experience under her belt. After coming in 3rd place in a prestigious national radio competition at the age of 18, Kim’s radio career kicked off as the youngest on-air talent at her previous station. Within the span of a few years, her drive, natural knack for public speaking landed her a spot on one of the country’s most popular English morning shows, all before stepping into University.
Even during her university days, Kim continued to fuel her passion for radio and hosting – she is the proud winner of Singapore Management University’s Voice Personality Hunt 2015, an emcee talent search involving high profile local judges from the radio and emceeing industries.
A versatile host, Kim is comfortable with a variety of event types and aims to ensure that at every event, she gives her audience a reason sit up and listen. Her regular lifestyle clients include well-known brands such as WingTai Asia (TOPSHOP/TOPMAN, i.t. Singapore), Timberland Singapore and Cycle & Carriage (KIA). No stranger to the world of sports hosting, Kim was a volunteer host under the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) in 2012 for the Singapore National Games. She later revisited her working relationship with the SSC as an official sports commentator for the 2015 ASEAN Para Games. Her formal D&D hosting experience includes hosting for officer commissioning balls under the Singapore Armed Forces.
Kim is a rising talent within the voiceover industry, with projects under her belt ranging from features in local movies (Ken Kwek’s Unlucky Plaza) to film animation projects based in Sweden. Commercially, her voice has been used for recognisable projects such as Lazada’s Great Singapore Sale advertisements – she is also the voice behind River Safari’s mascot on its official app! Her corporate voiceover projects include instructional videos for the government bodies such as the MOE and the LTA.
When she’s not entertaining crowds or amusing radio listeners with her offkilter sense of humour, Kim can be found writing, bopping along to rock and hip-hop or cowering under the sheets after a day spent on too many horror movies and games.
