Malaysia has a brand new online media platform known as Pentagon Online TV and it is due to debut on YouTube in July. Its programmes will revolve around themes of self-investment, self-development and self-growth.
The channel will be launched with three programmes: Meet The Artistpreneur, Ladies 234 and Cheers! Music.
Four Malaysian artistes have been invited to serve as programme hosts: Victor Lee, Cindy Chen, Wu Jia Hui and Jyin Poh.
The four conducted a press conference to launch their respective programmes recently.
The first show to kick off Pentagon Online TV will be Meet The Artistpreneur. The entrepreneurship-themed show will debut on July 11 at 3pm. The show is hosted by singer Lee, who also considers himself an artistpreneur.
“Meet The Artistpreneur is a show which features talented local entertainers who have ventured into business an achieved good results. And, we will get these entrepreneurs to share the secrets behind their success,” said Lee, who is featuring 988 deejay Chan Fong on his show.
Then, a week later on July 18, a women’s lifestyle show Ladies 234 will make its debut with local fashionista Chen as its host.
“Our show will feature anything and everything of interest to women. The show is not only for women. Men can also watch it to help them understand women better,” urged model-veejay Chen, who frequently reinvents herself.
Following that, a music-themed programme will debut on July 25. Titled Cheers! Music, the upbeat show will feature two local singer-songwriters making their debut as show hosts: Wu and Poh.
Wu teased: “We’ll show people what happens in the music scene. It’s not all just glamour. Even superstars have problems. But, it will be done in a light-hearted manner.”
