After 18 years of charming listeners with his voice, GOLD 90.5FM host The Flying Dutchman (FD) will be leaving MediaCorp.
FD, whose real name is Mark van Cuylenburg, shared this with listeners Tuesday morning (Dec 30), saying that he was going to be purusing his own interests such as travelling with his wife.
“It’s been an incredible 18 years but life is about evolving, it’s about change and change has to be embraced. It’s very exciting,” said Mr van Cuylenburg, who will be signing off from the show on Wednesday.
FD started his career with the then Radio Corporation Singapore in December 1996 and had spent 17 years hosting Class 95FM’s The Morning Express and over a year hosting GOLD 90.5FM’s The Gold Breakfast Show.
Said Ms Erina Cook, Assistant Vice President of Gold 90.5FM, Radio, MediaCorp: “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mark since he joined Class 95FM in 1996. He has connected well with listeners and he willingly shares his experiences and ideas with colleagues. I wish him a good break.”
Vernetta Lopez will continue hosting The Gold Breakfast Show, said Ms Cook.
