Wayne the Man

Short Bio

You might have seen him on TV. Or heard him on the radio.

Wayne Chan is a former Channel NewsAsia (CNA) and 93.8 Live presenter. He provided news coverage for 3 elections and won several awards at MediaCorp, whilst reporting on a wide array of key issues – from housing, healthcare and environmental concerns to transport, defence and technology developments.

Today, he’s a full-time multilingual (English, Mandarin, Hokkien) emcee and voice talent with hundreds of happy clients. Whether it’s a business conference or a baby show, his broadcast quality voice, versatile hosting skills and dynamic personality will give your next show an extra punch of energy and gravitas. He can move any crowd, whether it’s at a community centre or at a black-tie corporate event.

Wayne has anchored numerous events including conferences, award nights, D & Ds, family days, parties, weddings, roadshows, product launches and sports events since 2001. He’s hosted for Asia’s Got Talent Season 2 in 2017 (broadcast globally on AXN) and was featured as an events industry panelist on How Do I Look Asia Season 2 (broadcast globally on the DIVA Channel).

His years of experience managing various public outreach campaigns as a public relations professional have also transformed him into a masterful communicator who can adapt his style to help your messages resonate with any target audience and achieve your event’s objectives, whether it’s a fun or formal affair. A good time is guaranteed when you have Wayne helming your show – and you’ll be rewarded with delightful surprises and joyful memories!

Wayne is also well-versed in PR & Marketing with extensive public and private sector experience in branding, media management, marketing communications, events management, public relations, advertising and social media. This makes him an especially ideal choice for your corporate shows where a keen intellect is needed to deliver dynamic content in an engaging manner to high-level audiences.

His media and communications career includes various public relations, marketing, editorial and business development appointments at MediaCorp, Ogilvy PR, Parkway Health, DBS Bank, National Environment Agency, Land Transport Authority and the Building & Construction Authority.
