Search For Top 30 Asia VJ



Music Weekly Asia, online music magazine and Asia’s leading source of digital and music industry news, in conjunction with Music Services Asia (MSA), is on the hunt for a VJ to host ‘Top 30 Asia’, the first digital music charts program for the Southeast Asian region. Presented online and starting from early 2014, Top 30 Asia will be a weekly countdown show of the hottest music from Singapore, the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.

The successful applicant will have a burning passion for music in all its facets. The VJ will have a diverse role in front of the camera covering major music festivals, music news and gossip. You will interview and be face-to-face with some of the world’s biggest rock stars where you will be brave enough to ask the daring questions and will be thrown into all sorts of fun situations. Tapings will vary in location from the studio to live online broadcastings.

As a presenter you will be savvy behind the scenes taking a large role with production including script writing, storyboards and pitches. You will also lend a hand with editorial on the Music Weekly Asia website to write music news, articles and reviews.

Previous experience in journalism, TV or online broadcasting is highly favourable but not essential.
