POWER 98 RADIO FM LAUNCHES 1ST LOCAL F1 RADIO SHOW
Power 98 launches Pitstop with Kenny James, Singapore's only full hour Formula One (F1) radio show. Hosted by former F1 TV commentator Kenny James, the show is aired every Saturday from 10 to 11 am.
Pitstop will build listeners' knowledge every week, with James tailoring the intricacies and terminology of F1 to even the most novice of motorsport newbies.
The show features interviews with the who's who in F1, including Paul Stoddard (former owner of the Minardi team), Alex Yoong (first ethnic Chinese F1 driver) and BMW Sauber drivers Nick Heidfeld and Robert Kubica.
Finnish two-time F1 champion Mika Hakkinen was on the 29 Mar 2014 show.
"Pitstop is going to bring the bigger picture of F1 to our listeners... from the leading edge automotive technologies that the cars use through to the oversized personalities of millionaire drivers and team bosses," said James.
Pitstop is a first for local radio and has already proven to be a hit with F1 followers.
