HOT FM91.3 Does The Switch!

The Shan & Cheryl Show to switch time slots with Boy Thunder, Adam & Josh from the HOT Breakfast Crew

Singapore, 2 August 2013 – Singapore’s number one hit music station, SPH UnionWorks' HOT FM91.3, is getting hotter with brand new drive time belts this August. Come 12 August 2013, The Shan & Cheryl Show will be switching time slots with Boy Thunder, Adam & Josh from the HOT Breakfast Crew!

This follows the station’s positive results from the recent AC Nielsen Radio Diary Survey. HOT FM91.3 is now Singapore’s number one hit music station among listeners aged 15 years and above, beating former number one 987FM. The station gained 20,000 more fans, with 331,000 listeners tuning in weekly.

Start your morning with the bubbly and hilarious Shan Wee and Cheryl Miles in ‘The Shan & Cheryl Show’ weekdays from 6.00am to 10.00am. Popular social media influencers and tech-savvy personalities Boy Thunder, Adam Piperdy and Joshua Simon will take fans home from 4pm – 7.30pm.

Gerald Koh aka Boy Thunder, said: "We are excited about the switch and we know our fans are looking forward to having us on the evening drive time! Being Singapore's youngest DJ team, we've learnt so much in the mornings and we cannot wait to deliver fun, engaging content to our fans on air and interact with our more than 25,000 social media followers."

Shan Wee said: “My baby boy wakes me up at 6am anyway so I will be fine but I’m worried about Cheryl getting up in time which is why I’ve just bought her an alarm clock that blares ‘My Heart Will Go On’ by Celine Dion at high volume on repeat!"

Mr Jamie Meldrum, Senior Program Director of HOT FM91.3, added: “2013 has been a fantastic year already for HOT FM91.3 and we’re all really excited about the new line up. BT, Adam & Josh have done a great job and the new time slot should complement their Social Media strength nicely, while Shan & Cheryl have struck up a very real and funny chemistry and should make for a great way to start the day. We’ve also got a couple more things on the way in September and October which should be pretty exciting for our fans, but you’ll have to stay tuned to find out more.”

HOT FM91.3 continues to bring its fans the hottest hits and artistes. Leading up to the big switch, the station embarks on a 100 Hour Mega Mix (DJ Free) over the National Day Long Weekend from 8 to 11 August 2013, which will include the chance for fans of American Rock Band Linkin Park to see the band live in Kuala Lumpur.
