John Leong is currently a co-host on Channel NewsAsia’s prime time news programme, Singapore Tonight. Prior to this, he was a senior reporter on the Singapore Desk, which produces exclusively local content for all the Mediacorp news channels.

When there are breaking news situations, John steps out of the studio to report on-location. Among some the most poignant events were his experiences covering the AirAsia QZ8501 Crash, the passing of Singapore’s founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, and the 2015 General Election in Singapore.

In a broadcast career that has spanned eight years, John has reported for radio and television, including at the former regional sports cable channel, ESPN Starsports. As a reporter covering the regional football beat, he particularly enjoyed following the Singapore National team’s progress and eventual triumph at the 2012 AFF Suzuki Cup.

John graduated from the University of Queensland, Australia with a Bachelor of Journalism in 2008. Outside of the newsroom, John is an avid weekend warrior. Rarely a Sunday goes by without slugging it out on a football pitch with his team.
