UFM100.3 DJ Jiang Jian Wen joins Good Morning Singapore!
Following the announcement of Youyi’s departure from Ch 8’s Good Morning Singapore!, viewers will get to meet a fresh face on the long-running program this September – former UFM100.3 DJ Jiang Jian Wen (aka Kenneth Kong) has recently confirmed his move to MediaCorp.
To the surprise of many, Jian Wen also happens to be the nephew of well-loved actor Chew Chor Meng. During the interview with xinmsn, he explained that he did not disclose his relationship with the veteran star previously, as “they were not from the same company”.
“I guess I was somehow influenced [to join the industry] after watching him on TV throughout my growing years. Uncle, I’m coming,” he quipped.
Jian Wen, however, reiterated that he only informed Chor Meng about his decision after he signed the papers because he did not wish to “pull strings” or to “pressure” his uncle, who has sent his blessings after learning the news.
With 12 years of experience as a radio DJ under his belt, Jian Wen is no stranger to the media industry. Even though he has no prior experience in front of the camera, the bubbly chap took initiative to “knock on the doors” of an entirely different environment as he wanted to seek new challenges.
“I’ve always paid attention to current affairs. Hopefully I can apply my skills in managing news and information, which I’ve picked up over the years, in my new role,” he added.
Despite his impressive resume, Jian Wen had to go through a series of interviews and auditions before sealing the job. When asked if he is satisfied with his new wages, the glib-talker admitted that he will enjoy a 30-percent pay rise come September.
