JK is a Full Time Senior Producer Presenter @ Power 98FM
He hosts Power Lunch, 10AM to 2PM weekdays
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 Singapore Radio since 2010.
Named as one of The Straits Times’ “DJs under 30 to look out for”, he has hosted every time-belt at Power 98FM from the flagship morning show to Evening Drive, Nights, and everything in between.
In his time at the station, JK has spearheaded many campaigns for a variety of clients including Ben & Jerry’s, CLEAR Men, Red Bull, MOTUL, and Nestle. One of his many successful projects includes "Operation Command & Deliver" for SingTel, which won a Singapore Media Award for “Best Use of Radio”.
In addition to his on air duties, JK also hosts #JKAYA, a special interview series available on the Camokakis App, executes client production work, and produces a variety of digital content from long form videos to tiktoks.
He is also the go to man for station events, having organized and led a number of major projects including the annual Power Parties, CARVIVOR, Around the World, LIVE Broadcast Events and more.
The Amazing Race Asia
JK made his debut on television in late 2016 when he was chosen to represent Singapore alongside his co-host Michael Tan for the Amazing Race Asia season 5; making it to eight out of ten episodes, finishing 1st place in 2 consecutive legs.
TARA 5 was a record breaking production, and is the most watched English OP in Asia.
Ah Boys to Men 4
JK's first ever role (albeit tiny) in a Movie Production came in the hugely successful hit production, Ah Boys to Men 4; a film about the misadventures and tribulations of Singaporean men in the reservist phase of their Military National Service.
Playing the role of a platoon commander who (spoiler alert) falls off a tank in an unfortunate mishap, JK's short but somewhat memorable role (for his friends and family) would forever be a highlight etched in his memory.
May this be the first of many exciting roles to come.
