Danny Yeo was invited to be on the panel discussion for Asian Academy Creative Awards National Winners Conference as a nominated presenter for the Best News or Current Affairs Anchor/Presenter Award.
The moderator for the session was Abram Sitzer, Director of Original Content (Asia Pacific), Discovery Network. The panel also included Anand Narasimhan of CNN-News 18 (India), Boey Leong of Astro AEC (Malaysia) and Jessica Soho of GMA Network (Philippines). All panelists are National Winners representing their respective countries.
Each panelist was asked to share a little about their programme content and coverage on important matters. Danny was asked about his discovery of the quality of palliative care in Mongolia as well as his experience filming in difficult situations. Danny was most impressed by the panelists’ passion for work and their enthusiasm for the topics that they cover. It was a rare occasion for current affairs presenters from the region to gather and share thoughts about newsworthy subjects.
The two-day conference was held right before the two-day awards presentation ceremony. Danny Yeo won the title of Asia’s Best Current Affairs Presenter on 3 Dec 2020, bringing honour and glory to Singapore in this prestigious regional competition.
