Singapore Summit Host Broadcaster Mediacorp


SIN: Mediacorp, host broadcaster for the DPRK-USA Singapore Summit, provided complete broadcast services to support global media covering the event.
Beyond providing broadcasting services, its news platforms, led by Channel NewsAsia, provided comprehensive coverage in four languages for audiences in Singapore and the region.
Mediacorp operated the Broadcast Centre within the International Media Centre which housed over 2,500 local and foreign journalists covering the event. The Broadcast Centre provided a complete range of broadcast services and facilities.
These included the live feed distribution and monitoring system, indoor and outdoor live presentation services and media booth space with editing facilities.
More than 250 Mediacorp staff were on ground comprising engineering, production services and news personnel, working round-the-clock to ensure that the quality of broadcast services and facilities were world class.
In the days leading up to the Summit, Mediacorp's regional news channel, Channel NewsAsia, and its vernacular news teams in Channel 8, Vasantham, Suria, digital platforms ( and and radio stations (958FM and 938NOW) provided timely coverage.
Over 300 journalists, including reporters and editors from Mediacorp’s newsroom in Singapore and its overseas bureaus, delivered continuous coverage of the momentous events as they unfurled.

Special programmes included ‘Path to Peace’, a geo-political analysis leading up to the Summit and ‘Prep and Buzz Pre-Summit’ which looked at the media centre, social media and the public buzz leading up to the Summit.
Mediacorp CEO Tham Loke Kheng (pictured) said: “We are honoured to be part of the Singapore effort to bring this historic event to the world. Given the short lead time, we have galvanised our people and resources to pull out all stops to host the global media and provide the best possible facilities and services to journalists covering the Summit. It is part of our DNA and the “can-do” spirit of Singapore."
Ms Tham added: "Our own journalists will provide the most comprehensive coverage of the Summit for consumers in Singapore and the region – from daily news bulletins to analysis and insights and across TV, digital and radio – in English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil. We will produce more in-depth analysis in our current affairs programmes and document stories of Singapore’s role in the Summit.”
