When we first heard that CLASS 95 presenter Yasminne Cheng is bringing her Lunchbreak show to the screen with #StayHomeWithMe Class 95 — one of the many programmes under a Mediacorp initiative to keep Singaporeans entertained and informed during the “circuit breaker” period — the first thing that came to our mind: This is a visual version of her radio show, right?
Just plonk a camera in front of her and let Yasminne do the voodoo she does so well —engrossing us with foodie news, trivia games and daily polls. Seriously, how hard can it be? This should be a walk in the park for her.
Well, yes — and no. Turns out there’s more to the set-up than meets the eye. Here, Yasminne tells us more about the challenges of ‘double’-hosting her live radio show.
