KUALA LUMPUR: Youth and sports minister Hannah Yeoh took to the air as a news presenter today, fulfilling her dream, when she made an appearance on the maiden edition of “Stadium RTM”, a segment of sports news on RTM’s Berita Perdana at 8pm.
Looking spruce in a red blazer, Yeoh was far from awkward and appeared casual when helming the four-minute segment, which featured the latest developments on local and international sports.
Among the news items presented by Yeoh included Malaysia’s participation in the SEA Games, followed by reports on the Sepang International Circuit’s track pavement and the performance of Harimau Malaya, who notched two wins by downing Turkmenistan 1-0 and Hong Kong 2-0 in their recent Tier 1 international friendlies.
“Stadium RTM” is a new 30-minute slot on Berita Perdana in conjunction with RTM’s 77th anniversary.
At the end of the broadcast, Yeoh wished RTM a happy 77th anniversary and signed off with RTM’s motto “Teman Setia Anda”.
She later posted a photograph on Instagram showing herself with other RTM newsreaders. She will make a second appearance on “Stadium RTM” tomorrow.
