KUALA LUMPUR, Feb 9 ― Khairy Jamaluddin is set to start a new career as a radio DJ at local ratio station, Hot FM, from next week.
The station said in a statement that the former health minister confirmed his appointment this morning on Bekpes Hot segment.
The Media Prima-owned station said Khairy will start work on February 15 alongside Johan, Fara Fauzana, and AG.
Expressing his gratitude, Media Prima Audio chief executive officer Nazri Noran said he is delighted to have Khairy on board to provide a fresher content to the listeners.
“A million thanks and appreciation to KJ for his willingness to join us as a Bekpes Hot presenter.”
Speaking about the content direction, Network director Shah Hayatudin said the team is currently discussing with Khairy to curate exciting content for the listeners.
“Khairy has also shared several ideas to make the Bekpes segment more interesting to the audience.”
The radio station shared a copy of the offer letter online and openly requested Khairy to join the morning segment from 6am until 10am.
The segment will run everyday from Monday to Friday.
The offer came after Khairy was expelled from Umno last month for violating the party’s constitution in the 15th general election (GE15) that was held last November.
The former Rembau MP and Umno youth chief contested the Sungai Buloh seat in GE15 but was defeated by Pakatan Harapan’s Datuk R. Ramanan.
