Beginning July 13, Brian Chen, affectionately known as Abang Brian, will host Ceria Suria (weekdays, 10am to 1pm).
Abang Brian whose cooking skills have landed him appearances on Food Network and as a contestant on MasterChef Malaysia was first on Ceria Pagi with Bob Ringgo as a temporary replacement while Adibah Noor and Baki Zainal were away for a week.
Suria FM programme manager Adiwati Zainuddin says: “Brian came to us at a time when we weren’t looking for a radio host but his talent stood out. He is an accountant, chef and TV host. He is the complete package. And with his warmth and his gift of the gab, we’re confident Brian is well-suited for Suria FM.”
Abang Brian shares: “I love a new challenge. And with the opportunity to join radio, I’m so excited and grateful. Just as how you saw me on TV, I will bring my upbeat personality to radio listeners.
“I hope to entertain listeners with my segments on health, cooking, family relationships, relaxation and 1Malaysia. I hope to bring something new to the table as there hasn’t been a chef on radio so far. I hope to add value to Suria FM and draw in more listeners.”
