Mediacorp wins big at 2016 Mediacorp News Awards

Posted on 29 July 2016

Suck it, Singapore Press Holdings.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe a free and responsible media are the hallmarks of a mature society, have come out to praise Mediacorp.

This after they single-handedly swept all the awards at the 2016 Mediacorp News Awards.

One Singaporean, Mona Poh Lee, said: “It was a nail-biting finish to the end.”

“The only drawback was that the company wasn’t able to reward everyone, including the security guard and janitorial staff, with a prize or award because it will then cost too much and burst the annual budget.”

One of Mediacorp’s most popular reporter, Dian See Kee, said he is heartened that his organisation has come out tops again but also recognises the difficulties of being number one: “You know what’s harder than being in a two-horse race? Being in a one-horse race.”

“Competing against yourself, and winning credibly year after year, is a difficult process.”

When asked if there are plans to be the biggest winner of awards in national broadcasting again next year, Dian said: “We’ll try.”

“Nothing’s guaranteed yet. If we have to do it again, we will,” he said, looking a little sheepish.
