MediaCorp artiste Huang Wen Yong died today at the age of 60. 

The media company is mourning the passing of one of its most beloved and endearing actors. 

Wenyong joined the then Singapore Broadcasting Corporation in 1980 and was one of the early pioneers of local Chinese drama. 

To date, he has acted in over 100 Chinese dramas and sitcoms. 

In his over 30-year career with MediaCorp, he won numerous awards including "Special Achievement Award" in Star Awards 1997 and the most recent "Top 10 Favourite Male Artist Award" in Star Awards 2011. 

Wenyong will be dearly missed by everyone in MediaCorp - as a professional craftsman, a beloved colleague and a true friend.
