KUCHING: To mark its first anniversary, hitz.fm Kuching 95.3fm will be pulling out all the stops to make the hitz.fm Kuching’s ‘Birthday Invasion driven by Volkswagen’ a party to remember.
The popular hitz.fm morning crew JJ and Ean will be in town to host the birthday bash along with hitz.fm Kuching’s announcers, Meng and Natasha at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK) this Dec 9 at 7.30pm.
The honour of kicking off the party will belong to local bands and Borneo’s English Top 10 favourites Polar and Evenstarr.
Hot on their heels will be popular Malaysian music acts Mizz Nina, Pop Shuvit, Liang and Nadhira who will no doubt aim to rev up the party atmosphere.
Also doing their best to rock the dance floor with infectious beats will be Jakeman & Skeletor of Club hitz, giving fans and partygoers even more reason to groove the night away.
“This is the biggest event we will throw as a radio station so it’s going to be wonderful,” assured Mesh Nair, general manager of AMP radio Networks, Sabah and Sarawak.
Mesh hinted that the radio station had a few big things in the works for the ‘Birthday Invasion’ but remained coy on details.
“We want you to come down and see it for yourself,” he said cheekily.
He also said the radio station was staying true to its commitment to help local music acts develop and grow.
He said public response to the events they had run had been “amazing” and in that respect, he felt they had achieved much success.
“Come January, first quarter of next year we will be in Miri as well, so eventually, slowly but surely, we will be going to major towns around Sarawak, ” revealed Mesh, adding that in line with this expansion, the next step up for the hitz.fm Kuching would be to focus attention on the overall hitz.fm brand.
He thanked the media and the event’s sponsors for their support in making the event a reality.
Also present at the press conference was Volkswagen Sarawak executive director Rudy Ismail, BCCK acting F&B operations manager Nagendran Naidu, Pullman Hotel’s sales and marketing director Yip Lai Pheng and AMP Radio Networks Sarawak operations manager Iza Ibrahim.
