Topic: HOW TO MAKE THE TOPIC OF ENVIRONMENT SEXY FOR THE MEDIA
Datuk Wong Sai Wan would have been a lawyer or even a judge today. But due to his passion for media, he gave up on law at the Manchester City University, and instead used his voice and pen to bring the truth to light. Datuk Wong Sai Wan is fearless. He braved the Nipah virus outbreak and wrote on various other issues when he was working at The Star.
When he wants the truth, he needs it now. So, he interviewed a list of dignitaries, which includes Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Rajak. He never shied away from the tough questions. From his humble beginnings in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan, Datuk Wong Sai Wan raised the bar of journalism to a whole new level.
