In the mood for love

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - RADIO -

DJ Lin and Ika are hosts of the late night shows on Suria FM and Cap­i­tal FM, re­spec­tively, that help lis­ten­ers to sim­plify relationships.

DJ Lin who hosts Suria Cinta (Sun­day-Fri­day, 10pm-2am) is pas­sion­ate about be­ing on ra­dio. It is a ca­reer that gives her the op­por­tu­nity to ex­press her­self while get­ting im­me­di­ate feed­back from her lis­ten­ers.

“Like ev­ery job, there will be chal­lenges along the road. Over­com­ing these chal­lenges would con­tinue to reignite my en­thu­si­asm to per­form bet­ter for my lis­ten­ers,” said Lin.

Cap­i­tal FM an­nouncer Ika en­joys the in­ter­ac­tion with lis­ten­ers on her show Groove­down (Mon­day-Fri­day, 8pm-mid­night).

“There is noth­ing more or­ganic and hon­est than talk­ing to peo­ple whom I have con­sid­ered part of my life, al­though I have never met most of them,” said Ika.

Both an­nounc­ers ad­mit­ted that host­ing a show that deals with emo­tions, feel­ings and sen­ti­ments have made them more ap­pre­cia­tive of life.

One mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence for DJ Lin was when a caller shared a story on how she lost her tobe-hus­band in a car ac­ci­dent. This hap­pened when he was on his way to the mosque for their wed­ding.

“I al­ways put my­self in the shoes of oth­ers; so when I heard this story, I couldn’t help but shed some tears,” said Lin who chokes up when­ever she at­tends wed­dings of cou­ples who have met each other through her show.

For Ika, her mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence was when she re­ceived a let­ter from a lady who was try­ing to get back into the dat­ing scene af­ter her hus­band’s death.

“The sup­port and en­cour­age­ment that poured in were over­whelm­ing. I couldn’t air all of the com­ments, un­for­tu­nately. They were all so sweet and kind,” said Ika.

Suria FM’s Suria Cinta and Cap­i­tal FM’s Groove­down are re­lat­able and ap­peal­ing across all age groups and gen­ders.

Love is al­ways a great dis­course that brings peo­ple to­gether, de­spite the dif­fer­ence in ex­pe­ri­ence.
