New host for Asia Pop 40

Monday 04 March, 2019

Eon Media Group of Singapore has announced that its weekly flagship radio program, Asia Pop 40, has a new host from this weekend.

Taiwanese-Canadian radio jockey Joey Chou is the new voice of Asia Pop 40, replacing Dom Lau who has hosted the show since it commenced airing in mid 2013.

Joey is also the host of The Midday Show airing each weekday from 12:30 pm to 4 pm on Taiwan’s only all-English broadcaster ICRT FM100.

His first episode hosting the show was in January, as a guest host on the annual Asia Pop 140 countdown of the prior year’s biggest 140 songs.

Asia Pop 40 is Asia’s first locally-produced and regionally-syndicated weekly radio music show which airs in two languages (English and Mandarin) in over 100 cities across Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East.

Commenting on Joey’s appointment, Executive Producer of Asia Pop 40 Rob Graham stated: “We are thrilled that Joey has joined our team. From the moment I heard his unique voice and personality, I knew he’d be a great fit for the show.”

Chou stated, “Music was my first love and, unfortunately for my former girlfriends, video games was my second! And although I have a double degree in Political Science and Economics, I won’t mention any of that boring stuff on-air.”
