THE weather might have been gloomy in Ipoh, Perak but fans of 988 were all smiles as they got to meet the Chinese-language radio station’s popular deejays.
A huge crowd gathered at a cafe to interact with their favourite announcers and pose for photographs during 988’s two-day “We Meet Again” event.
Among the radio announcers present were Chan Fong, Sean Lee, Xiu Lam, PM Wang, Jeff Chin, Danny One, Cassey Soo and Chrystina Ng.
On the first day of the event, around 20 listeners were invited to sit in with Chan Fong during his City Heartbeat show, which was held outside the Klang Valley for the first time.
Other programmes broadcast live from Ipoh were Sean Lee and Xiu Lam’s Saturday morning show Yum Cha House, the Power Show at 4pm and an acoustic music show at night which featured a performance by ACE Live Band from The Raw Note.
The following day saw a bazaar mainly selling arts and crafts items as well as products from Baik Selangor.
988 digital and brand manager Su Joo Li said the event was their first and biggest outdoor broadcast show for the year.
“We came to Ipoh earlier this year and went to a few eateries but our visit was brief.
“This time, we are here for two days to broadcast from Ipoh and on Facebook Live.
“After almost three years of the Covid-19 pandemic, we want to meet our listeners face to face and thank them for their continuous support,” she said.
Su said 988 would be holding several on-ground events in the next few weeks.
“We will also be going to Melaka, Negri Sembilan and Johor,” she said, adding that a trip to Penang was on the cards as well.
