Hazlina Halim

TV screen at a timeIf there’s one thing broadcast journalist Hazlina Halim believes in, it is that knowledge should be shared. So when the opportunity to lecture at Temasek Polytechnic presented itself in 2011, she jumped at the chance of teaching Communications and Media Management, something she did for the next three years. “It was a really enriching experience and I really felt like I was contributing to the future; like I was investing,” she says.

Inspired by her students’ desire to learn, Halim decided to return to the media industry in 2014 to further hone her talents. Joining broadcaster MediaCorp, she now plans local news coverage on Channel NewsAsia and is a news presenter on Suria and radio station 938 Live.

Halim also chairs the Corporate Communications Advisory Committee at the Singapore Muslim Women’s Association (PPIS) and serves as Assistant Honorary General Secretary at the Singapore Council of Women’s Organisations (SCWO).
