“No Boobs” so “Cannot be a Presenter”: Channel NewsAsia Producer Complains of “Sexism” at Mediacorp

Channel NewsAsia TV producer Juwon Park has gone public with her allegations of sexism at Mediacorp.

Among the Park’s accusations are having been “tickled” by a male colleague when they shook hands, being made to lean on the shoulder of a male colleague and call him “wife”, and then being told that she should “enjoy” comments that come her way.

Park claims to have worked for Channel NewsAsia for one and a half years.

In a whatsapp message, she indicated that she had been told she cannot be a presenter because she has “no boobs”.

The identity of the person who gave Park that fatalistic piece of “advice” is unclear.

A Mediacorp spokesman says the company is investigating the allegations.

“Mediacorp does not condone sexism in the workplace. We take a serious view to this matter and are investigating.”
