RADIO station 988 is swinging back today with its tagline, Step Up, Rise Up (You Sheng, You Se). The relaunch will unveil a more captivating logo that is designed to please the station's target audience. The station is also rolling out more informative and intellectual programmes and content.
Listeners can now look forward to more power-packed news-based segments.
CK Tan, Star Radio Group's Chief Broadcasting Officer, said that 988's new logo represents a more youthful outlook and the new deejay line-up is ready to storm the airwaves.
"We are gathering information to present wider content to our listeners. We are also bringing in well-known deejay Chan Fong to host 988's popular breakfast show Morning Up, which is right up his alley," said Tan.
As a well-informed deejay, Chan Fong will share experiences and working life tips on the segment Feng Hui Lu Zhuan (which means, "winding path amidst high peaks").
Also, the show's latest hit segment, known as Shan Fong Dian Huo (which means, "fan the flames") has received overwhelming public feedback.
The breakfast show, led by deejay Chan Fong, together with Sam Mak (aka Da Bao) and newcomer Athena (aka Yi Hui), has a deejay line-up that promises to appeal to working adults.
Apart from opinions on the latest issues and current affairs, the production team has also beefed up segments like Morning VIPs, The Feature and Morning Up Cases.

Before Demi Lovato became a big-time pop singer, she was a Disney tween star who struggled during her transition from child celebrity into adulthood. However, she turned her stints in rehab, issues with an eating disorder and bipolar disease around to become a role model for young people everywhere, as well as a tireless champion of a long list of causes close to her heart.
On top of all that, she also found the time to have a career.
Her latest single Heart Attack, taken from her upcoming fourth full-length album, is currently her biggest hit. That one single has placed her on top with pop's biggest stars like Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen, who are all angling for chart domination.
With a No.12 debut on Billboard's Hot 100 chart, it is obvious that Lovato is not only holding her own but is primed for a full-on chart attack.
With all that she has going for her, it was only natural that Galaxie wanted the current X-Factor judge on the cover for its March 17 issue, which highlights Lovato's career in music, the good work she has done over the years to better herself, as well as to acknowledge the woman she has become.
In this issue, Galaxie also puts the spotlight on Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence who survived The Hunger Games and has become the toast of Tinseltown.
At the same time, celebrate the success of music's most credible star Ed Sheeran, and find out why Being Human actor Sam Witwer is so interested in Star Wars, and how he keeps sane in the business.
For TV buffs who love dashing men in suits, you'll love Galaxie's feature on Suits star Patrick J. Adams, who was in Kuala Lumpur last month to promote the show. Read how he regaled readers with stories from the set of the show.
Fans of fashion can enjoy a pictorial spread on the latest red carpet looks which shone in the spotlight as stars wore their best to attend this year's Oscars ceremony.
As always, Galaxie brings readers another fun issue packed with the latest juicy gossip from Hollywood, Bollywood and Asia, the latest music and film reviews, as well as loads of posters and goodies up for grabs.
