Kiss92 Singapore launches new morning show

SPH Radio’s Kiss92 is rolling out a new morning show titled Wake Up and Go with Div and Jo’ on July 19.

The show will air from 6am to 10am on weekdays and will be anchored by incumbent morning show host Divian Nair together with actor and writer Jo Tan, who is making her radio debut.

Vocal and smart, Jo brings her own brand of humour to the show, with the cheeky and playful Divian her perfect foil.

Multifaceted and multi-disciplinary, Jo is a prolific theatre performer, television actress, singer, host and also a writer. She recently won Best Actress at the Straits Times Life Theatre Awards 2020 for her self-penned one-woman show Forked.

Kiss92’s current morning show DJ Maddy Barber will be leaving the team on July 16 to pursue personal interests while producer-presenter Andre Hoeden will be moving into the role of content strategist for SPH Radio’s English music stations, Kiss92 and ONE FM 91.3.

On her new gig as a radio DJ, Jo Tan said:  “I love communicating with people and telling stories, which is why I am an actor and playwright, was a journalist, and have recently become a streamer. Radio is a means of communication that I’ve always been happy to experience but never worked in, so now that I have the opportunity, I have to say I’m maybe too psyched. I’m going to have to play it cool on-air so that I don’t sound like I’m a chihuahua being fast forwarded.”

Divian, who is thrilled to have Jo as co-host, said: “Jo is one of the most talented people I know. I mean, how many people do you know who can write, sing, dance, act, have studied law and trained in a prestigious clown school? She is fiercely intelligent, kind, quirky and incredibly versatile. Jo and I share a vision that radio allows listeners from all walks of life to connect through stories, initiatives, laughter and tears. That’s what we want our show to be about.” 

Bernard Lim, Programme Director for SPH Radio’s English music stations, said: “Jo shares great chemistry with Divian, and her witty and offbeat personality is highly disarming. Div and Jo will bring new and interesting voices to our morning conversations and deliver a fresh entertaining show for our discerning audience, while providing our partners with an engaging platform to connect with their consumers.”
