But seriously, after the initial jitters, I think things went quite well. Thank God. Of course, I've been a guest on the show numerous times, but anchoring it was a whole different ballgame. Apart from yours truly, the other new hosts are Annahita Bakavoli, an actress and ex Dewi Remaja champ, and Zakiah Anas, who's known for another TV3 show, 999.
So, how did I get the gig in the first place? Well, some months back, the boss of Primeworks magazine dept casually asked me by the lift if I was interested to host the show. It came from out of the blue, and honestly I didn't really know what to think then.
After a couple of weeks of contemplation, I got back to him and said I'd give it a shot. In my mind, even if I didn't get the gig, I'd at least learn about the whole process.
So for the past couple of weeks, I went thru some mock-runs with other potential hosts. And one fine afternoon, I got the call to say that I got the job. And that was it really.
And so this morning, I made my debut with the rest of the gang. The new set looks bangin as well, and with the introduction of some new segments, MHI promises to be a good watch every weekday. So really, the New Year has started rather well. Hope to improve all the time though, starting this coming Monday. Wish me more luck, peeps!
